Handmade and heartfelt, perfect for vows, speeches and a great way to say "thank you" and "I love you". One of emotional highlights of the day. A Gift of Poetry, written from the heart, will make your service or reception a truly moving experience. Wedding poems can be written for invitations, wedding vows, speeches and toasts.
(Here's a good example of just what can be achieved. Susan was getting married and wanted something special for her new husband, Andrew. Susan has kindly given her permission for her poem and story to be published.)

"My Dearest Allen, I just wanted to write and let you know that the wedding was beautiful as was your poem. I was told there wasn't a dry eye in the room, everyone found the poem very moving, Andrew especially."



What is your name:
Susan Bourne
Who do you want the poem written for:
My husband to be, Andrew. We are getting married on 12th June
Why do you want the poem written:
I want him to know how much I love him
What are the key messages you would like to send:
I want him to know that since we found each other my life has turned around, before I started seeing Andy I had had a 10 year relationship previously which was very abusive and included a number of affairs on my partner side. I eventually got out this relationship and spent some time by myself before meeting Andy. Although I would not wish for the past to be directly referred to I would like somehow to say how my life is different now and how much he means to me as I appreciate him more for having been through a bad time. I want him to know that I love him with all my heart and trust him with my life, I know he would never do anything to hurt me or let me down in any way.
Do you have any funny, sad, happy, embarrassing or otherwise memorable moments that you would like to share:
I knew Andy some 15 years ago through his brother Mark, but always have remembered him as Marks' little brother, we have occasionally bumped into one another over the years but were both with someone at the time. One night I went out with my friends into town and after a few too many left early by myself. I bumped into Andy that night he was working ( he's a police officer ), we chatted and exchanged numbers, I jokingly said did he not mind that I was older than him to which he replied how old was I, I said I was 27 and he laughed and said he was 28 the following week! I'd always remembered him as Marks' little brother as I'd never looked at him in that light before. We text each other and arranged to go out on a date. Andy took me to the pictures on our first date to see Red Dragon, I watched most of the film cuddled up to him as I don't really like scary films, maybe that was his plan! From that night on we were inseparably, I knew I'd found my soul mate. Within weeks Andy had moved in with me and my son Luca and in the February Andy asked me to marry him, I felt like the happiest person alive and said yes of course. In March we went on our first holiday together with some friends and my son Luca, we had a great time, Andy got burnt on his back and Luca and I had little competitions to see who could get the biggest piece of skin of his back, yuk!!! We started to renovate our new house we had bought aiming to move in as quick as possible. Whilst we were doing the house up Andy nailed down a floor board and burst the water pipe below it, was a funny moment you had to be there. We have just spent our first Christmas in our new home and it was the best. Andrew is very warm and loving, caring and considerate. I know that he ill never hurt me. He has taken me knowing my past troubles and without a thought my son as well. Luca and I love him to bits. We have little names for each other my name for Andy is 'Babyone' his for me is to rude to print! We tell each other we love each other sometimes by saying ' all the world' or 'to the moon and back again'. I can't imagine what my life would have been like had our paths not crossed the last time we met. It must have been fate. He makes me so very happy and I know that he holds my heart in his hand, I know he will be gentle with it. We talk about having children, we say little wressell's. I cannot wait to have his children and to see him as a father, i know he will be wonderful. At times Andy has little insecurities as he thinks sometimes that I'm too beautiful to be with him and could do so much better. I answer to him we are good enough for each other. He is the best and I want him to know that I wouldn't swap him for anyone else in the whole wide world. Andy has been hurt before too and i want him to know I will never take his love for granted and will never hurt him. Andy is very witty at times and comes out with some great one liners, he has a great sense of humour.
Do you have any other comments or thoughts:
I just really want to tell him how much I love him, how special he is to me and my son. To thank him for asking me to be his wife, which I cannot wait to be. That I am proud of him and all he has done.( he looks very sexy in his uniform too ) and that every day for the rest of my life I will love him and cherish what we have.
What style of poem would you prefer (happy, sad, romantic etc.):
romantic and funny in places
Please choose which package you would prefer:
It doesn’t seem so long ago,
when I was there, sitting on my own,
contemplating a troubled and torrid past,
a past where I'd spent most of it feeling all alone.
But then you walked into my life,
and it was like a firework had lit up my night sky,
and I’m going to try and explain that line,
or at least I’m going to give it my very best try.
You see, you don’t know how really bad ‘bad’ is,
that is until you’ve had your share of bad and troubled times,
you then know the real meaning of heartache,
you know the agony in all those desperate rhymes.
I appreciate you so much more because of that knowledge,
because I know just how cruel life can be,
and I just wanted you to know that you’re special,
you simply mean the very world to me.
The night we met I'd had one too many,but now I'm glad I did,
(and I’d always thought of you as Mark’s little brother),
I knew my destiny had been rearranged,
I’d met my soul-mate (and there’ll never be another).
Our first date was a free ticket picture show,
Red Dragon had me cuddling you and hiding my eyes,
I guess that was your fiendishly clever plan,
as within weeks you’d moved in with me and Luca (no surprise).
When you asked me to marry you,
I felt like the happiest woman on earth,
because I know the value of true and real love,
and just how much that love is truly worth.
Our first holiday together was wonderful,
apart from your case of sunburn attack,
but I must admit Luca and I enjoyed the competition,
who could get the biggest piece of skin off your back.
And the renovations on our house sort of went OK,
that is apart from the water pipe you burst,
it gave us all a big laugh that day,
(and also quenched a few termite’s thirst).
We’ve just spent our first Christmas in our new home,
and I’ve got to say it was simply the best,
and Andrew, husband, I love you,
(you passed the audition, you came top in the test).
You’re so very warm, loving, caring and considerate,
and I am truly smitten by your worldly charms,
I know I’ll never be lost and lonely again,
I feel totally safe whenever I’m in your arms.
Luca and I love you to bits!
You’re much more than a friend to my son,
and although your name for me is too rude to print,
I love you my “Babyone”.
All the world and to the moon and back again,
that’s just how wonderful you really are,
and if my love for you were a distance,
then it would be further than the furthest star.
If I tried to imagine my life without you,
I would see one of darkness, of no light at all,
it must have been fate and I accept it gladly,
I’m looking forward to our Wressels, large and small.
I know sometimes you have a little insecurity,
but I reckon we’re just a perfect match,
and of all the fishes in this world,
let me tell you, I’ve got the pick of the catch.
I will never take your love for granted,
and your one liners I could never possibly out do,
so just know that I wouldn’t swap you for the world,
so Babyone, it must mean that this love is really true!
So, I just wanted to say I love you,
I guess that’s really what these words are for,
Andrew, I love you very much,
and I promise you that love today, always and forever more.

"My Dearest Allen,

I just wanted to write and let you know that the wedding was beautiful as was your poem. I was told there wasn't a dry eye in the room, everyone found the poem very moving, Andrew especially. I have attached a photo of us both on our wedding day so that you can put a face to our names. The poem is something that we will both treasure for the rest of our lives, thank you so so much. I know I have said it before but you are a truly talented guy and I am so glad that I found you. I wish you and you loved ones happiness for the future and also good health. I will be in touch shortly as I would love you to write a poem for my brother and his wife, (withheld) and I would love you to write something to celebrate this. If I may I will write to you nearer the time to tell you more about it,

Once again Allen THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU, you made our day so much more special.

With Love and Affection
