Tarzan Inspired Non Religious Reading

You Will Be In My Heart- From Tarzan

Come stop your crying
It will be all right
Just take my hand
Hold it tight

I will protect you
from all around you
I will be here
Don’t you cry

For one so small,
you seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
can’t be broken
I will be here
Don’t you cry

‘Cause you’ll be in my heart
Yes, you’ll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more
You’ll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You’ll be here
in my heart always

 Absolutely gorgeous isn’t it. Disney is just awesome, for so many reason, this is one of  them, their amazing music. As well as making me want to be a mermaid.

But mainly the music x

Non-Religious Wedding Readings: Part 8

We are adding to our collection of wedding readings all the time, here is another one from Homemade Bride Kate.


This beautiful poem was read by the lovely Hannah at my sister’s wedding. Christy asked her to do a reading but she wanted it to be a surprise. Now for those of you who have been married you know you need to submit all readings into the registrar. So my sister was very well behaved and kept it in its envelope and didn’t hear it till the day. Now I might be bias but I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Non-Religious Wedding Readings: Part 7

Today I have a little quote to add to our series of Non-Religious Wedding Readings. A religious ceremony can still use non-religious wedding readings but not vice versa so it is one of the things we get asked for help with the most. We will keep carrying on finding more and more inspiration for you! the-pursuit-of-love-nancy-mitford
I love this little quote. It is so true. Until I met my husband I didn’t understand what people meant when they said “You will know when you meet The One.” The day I met him I totally got it!
Nobody has a whole heart just half a heart. The middle side is like a puzzle piece. Sometimes we try to get two pieces together, but instead it creates friction, scratches on the surface, and hurts like hell, but that doesn’t mean our heart’s useless. No matter how damaged they may get they are never useless, but when you find the one person who does fit that’s when you know you’re happy. Never give up and keep on going and make sure to listen to your heart, you just might find the other piece.

Non-Religious Wedding Readings: Part 6

By now you’ve probably clicked that we are writing a series on non-religious wedding readings, here is everything we’ve written so far. Here is our next installment.


I love how this poem makes me smile. It’s honest and light hearted. If you didn’t want to use it as a reading I suggest that you put in a card for on the wedding morning. It would be a good way to help damper some nerves.

I wanna be yours – Cooper Clarke

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
Breathing in your dust,
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust,
If you like your coffee hot
Let me be your coffee pot,
You call the shots,
I wanna be yours.

I wanna be your raincoat
For those frequent rainy days,
I wanna be your dreamboat
When you want to sail away,
Let me be your teddy bear
Take me with you anywhere,
I don’t care,
I wanna be yours.

I wanna be your electric meter
I will not run out,
I wanna be the electric heater
You’ll get cold without,
I wanna be your setting lotion
Hold your hair in deep devotion,
Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean
That’s how deep is my devotion.

Non-Religious Wedding Readings: Part 5

One request we get time and time again is for alternative wedding readings. Whether you are planning a religious or civil ceremony we have found a selection of readings that would possibly fit the bill. Here is the lovely Kate with part 5 of our new series.


The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

There were so many lovely quotes from this movie I just couldn’t choose. So I decided to do a collection for you. I hope this gives you some inspiration for readings on the day. I hope you love them as much as I do.

“Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it was like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.”

“You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love. So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be hard. We’re going to have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you forever, you and me everyday.”


“We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.”


We will be back with more inspiration very soon!
