Dear [bride/groom] and [bride/groom],

As I stand here today, watching you two exchange your vows and commit to a life of love and partnership, I am overcome with emotion.

I know [bride/groom] al [number] years, and in that time I have seen with my own eyes the love and affection that [bride/groom] has for [bride/groom]. From the moment I [bride/groom] met, I knew this was a special relationship, one meant to last a lifetime.

As I watch you come together in your lives today, I am filled with joy and happiness. I am so grateful to have been part of your journey and witnessed the love you share.

[Bride/groom] and [bride/groom], may your marriage be filled with love, laughter and happiness. May you support and encourage each other, and may your love grow stronger every day.

Congratulations on this wonderful occasion. I wish you both all the best as you begin your new life together.

"Dear family, friends and bride and groom,

I am so honoured to be here today to celebrate the union of two amazing people (bride and groom) celebrate. They have known each other for many years and their friendship has grown into something very beautiful.

Today is a holiday and I am sure the couple is feeling a mix of emotions, happiness, joy and excitement about the future. To mark this special day, let me offer a few words of advice.

First, always be honest with each other. Always communicate your feelings and be open to listening to each other. Respect each other's opinions and never take each other for granted.

Second, make sure you always make time for each other. In the hustle and bustle of life, it is easy to forget how important it is to make time for your partner.

Third, don't forget to laugh and have fun together. Life is too short to take it too seriously.

Finally, my last piece of advice is to never forget why you are together. You are two people who love each other very much, and that is the most important thing.

So, for (bride and groom), may your marriage be filled with love, laughter and joy. Congratulations"

"Good evening everyone,

I am so honoured and happy to be here today to celebrate this wonderful union.

First, I want to [bride and groom] thank them for having me here and for inviting us all to share this special day with them.

When [bride and groom] came together for the first time, I noticed how happy they were. They had a warmth around them that was infectious, and it was clear to everyone around them that they were meant for each other.

Since then, I have had the pleasure of watching their love grow and blossom. I have had the honour of being there when they first met, and now to be there when they say "yes" to each other today.

This day is a testament to the strength of their love and commitment to each other. [Bride and groom], may the coming years be filled with love, joy and happiness.

Cheers to the happy couple!"

"Dear people,

I want to thank you all for being here today to celebrate this special occasion.

I am sure you all know why we are here tonight. Our two special friends, [bride] and [groom] to see them get married and we are also here to send them off with our love and best wishes.

I have been fortunate to know these two for many years and I can say without a doubt that they are two of the most kind, caring and considerate people I know. It is beautiful to witness two people who understand and appreciate each other like [bride] and [groom] do that.

Marriage is a beautiful thing and I am so moved to see how [bride] and [groom] begin this new journey together. I know it will not be easy, but with love, patience and understanding, they will get through everything.

So let's all raise a glass to [bride] and [groom] And wishing them all the best in their new life together! Congratulations!
