The Ultimate Wedding Ceremony Workbook, by Reverend Amy Long, includes a
selection of nondenominational candle lighting ceremonies, wine ceremonies, and
ways to make your children part of the service.
This candle you are about to light is a candle of Marriage. It's fire is magical
because it represents the light of two people in love.
This candle before you is a candle of Commitment because it takes two people
working together to keep it aflame.
This candle is also a candle of Unity because both must come together, giving a
spark of themselves, to create the new light.
As you light this candle today, may the brightness of the flame shine throughout
your lives. May it give you courage and reassurance in darkness. Warmth and
safety in the cold. And strength and joy in your bodies, minds, and spirits.
May your union be forever blessed.
