Departed.jpg

Emotions may be high and could build up towards your wedding day, especially more so if you have lost a loved one recently. 

 

Although we never forget our departed family and friends, some couples like to acknowledge their departed loved ones during the wedding ceremony. 

 

Below is some sample wordings that could be included in your wedding ceremony along with some ideas to remember your departed loved ones. 

Sample Wording: 

One: At every special occasion in life, there are always absent family and friends and today is no different. 

 

So in honour of those departed and who are dearly missed, we have lit this candle.  Let us take a few moments to remember those who have gone before us, their laughter, their love and what each person meant to us, knowing they are with us here today in spirit.   

 

Two: We remember and hold dear our loved ones who are no longer with us (names). Gone but never to be forgotten.

 

Three: Though (names) are/is not with us today, his/her/their memory remains.

 

Four: An angel is watching over us today.

Five: Memories of you fill our minds this wonderful day.
