Wedding Ceremony Scripts

Universal Life Church ministers perform all different types of weddings from formal and traditional ceremonies to laid-back weddings with fun themes. You are encouraged to create a unique wedding. Your minister, BeataHunt, will ensure that the basic requirements all ceremonies must meet are included.

In order for a marriage to be legally binding, the wedding ceremony itself must include two key elements. The first is the Declaration of Intent this is most commonly recognized as the 'Do you take... I do' exchange. The second is the Pronouncement, where you will be pronounced officially married. While most weddings will involve additional elements, these segments constitute the bare minimum for a legal ceremony. Beata will make sure they are covered.

Wedding Ceremony Rituals

Wedding rituals personalize and add richness to your ceremony.

Unity Candle
This traditional ritual signifies that the couple is coming together through marriage and joining as one.
Sand Ceremony
Similar to the Unity Candle, couples each pour sand from their individual container, into a shared container, symbolizing their unity. This is a wonderful way to involve children in your ceremony, each with their own unique color.
Rose Ceremony
Each person expresses a 'thank you' to special loved ones, such as parents and grandparents, by presenting them with a rose early in the ceremony.
Hand Blessing
A poem or passage is ready by your wedding officiant, Beata Hunt, to the couple while they hold hands and look into each others eyes.
