Scripture Readings for Weddings
The Readings are very important. In them God speaks to us, so they should reflect your idea of the meaning of love and marriage.
A selection of readings is given below. You have these options:
- An Old Testament Reading, a Psalm, and a Gospel Reading
- A New Testament Reading, a Psalm, and a Gospel Reading
- An Old and a New Testament Reading, a Psalm and Gospel
The Priest proclaims the Gospel. The other Readings, the Psalm, and the Bidding Prayers (Intercessions), are usually read by members of the family or by friends. Readers should be well-prepared, and understand the need to make sure that everyone in the congregation can hear and understand what is said.
