Lights, Camera, "I Do": Injecting Movie Magic into Your Wedding Ceremony!

Lights, camera, action! When it comes to tying the knot, couples are increasingly seeking ways to make their big day truly unique and reflective of their personalities. Gone are the days of cookie-cutter ceremonies; instead, many couples are now opting for celebrant-led weddings that offer the freedom to craft a bespoke experience from start to finish.

One easy and effective way to infuse your personalities into your ceremony is through the choice of readings. And what better way to do that than by drawing inspiration from your favourite movies? Movie lovers rejoice, for incorporating epic quotes from your beloved films into your wedding readings is a sure-fire way to add a touch of cinematic magic to your special day.

Without further ado, here are my top movie quotes for wedding readings:

#1 "Grow Old with You - The Wedding Singer" - A popular choice for movie fans as not only is it movie themed but it's equally funny and sentimental! This always goes down very well with the guests!


#2 "The Princess Bride" - Often when you hear the words "Princess Bride" and "Wedding" our minds go to the iconic "Mawwaige is what bwings us togethew today" wedding scene (and as your celebrant, if you need that from me, I can deliver!) But this quote is poetic, beautiful and delivered with some good comedic timing could be an absolute crowd winner! Could be read by a loved one or by your celebrant... "As you wish!"


#3 "The Nightmare Before Christmas" - I'm sorry but who doesn't have a special place in their heart for this movie?? For those Tim Burton fans out there adding this beautiful quote into your proceedings would be a beautiful nod to our noble Pumpkin King! A nice short reading for a loved one to contribute or could be added into the celebrant script... your choice... "I'm only an elected official here, I can't make decisions by myself!"


#4 "Stardust" - I'm not going to lie, I'm a fan of the book first and movie second... but what a great movie and what a beautiful quote from Yvaine! Add this quote to your magical day to fully capture those star-crossed lover vibes!!!


#5 "When Harry met Sally" - Nope not that scene... but I mean it's your wedding so whatever you want really! A beautifully funny quote from a classic movie. If the wording isn't totally doing it for you, we could write a bespoke version of this quote to capture some more personalised statements. Maybe with the musical addition of "It had to be you" to follow!


#6 - "The Notebook" - I'm sorry guys, I tried so hard not to, but there are so many beautiful quotes about love in this movie it couldn't be left out! It's perfect for a loved one to read somewhere in the midst of your ceremony! For love as epic as Noah and Allie's - this might be the reading for you


#7 - "Juno". Another short but sweet one from an unlikely movie! But one for those indie film fans who want a little nod the genre and a beautiful take on modern love!

But wait, there's more! Adding movie-themed readings isn’t the only way to infuse your passion for film into your ceremony. Here are some other creative ideas to keep the movie theme alive:

- 📽️ Get married in your local cinema. (I booked a cinema for my wedding and they often let you change the posters and lettering on display to truly personalise your blockbuster venue)

- ♥️ Set the scene with a red carpet down the aisle! #RedCarpetWedding

- 🎶 Walk down the aisle to a romantic rendition of your favourite movie soundtrack.

- ✍🏼Have a bespoke ceremony script that tells your love story in style of a blockbuster movie - all the action, all the drama and that all important meet-cute!

- 💑 Exchange vows inspired by your favourite on-screen couples. #VowInspiration

- 🎬 Add in a symbolic addition that references your favourite film or film genre!

- 🍿How about cinema snacks for your guests as they enjoy the ceremony?

So what have we learned? Well, opting for a celebrant-led wedding truly is the way forward if you want a ceremony that not only celebrates your love but also perfectly showcases your unique personalities and interests. By incorporating movie magic into your special day, you're sure to create Oscar-winning memories that will last a lifetime. Lights, camera, happily ever after! 🎬♥️
