Priest:
Please take note to silence all voiceboxes and roleplaying until the end of this ceremony. Thankyou for your coperation.

Priest:
When we come into this world, we have only our selves, and most of our journey in life is walked alone, Some of us are content in our solitude, while others spend their whole lives searching for someone else to share with them their passions, their sorrows, and their joys.

A very lucky few of us can find that person: someone who helps us carry our burdens and achieve our dreams, just as we, in turn, help them.

It is a rare and wondrous occasion when we realize that we have found someone to build a life with; and such an occasion should be celebrated, solemnly and joyfully, among friends.

We are gathered here tonight because there are two souls among us who cry out for union. They have walked together for a time now, and they have realized that they no longer wish to walk alone.

Would Mikaela and Andy please step forward?


Priest:
Andy and Mikaela. By swearing yourselves to one another this night, you help forge a bond that will be with you in every time and in every place throughout the long journey of years ahead of you.

Marriage is not merely a bond of the flesh; it is also a binding of souls, When we touch one another, when we kiss and make love, we do not embrace only the body, We touch the spirit as well.

The union of flesh is sacred and beautiful, but the union of souls is forever. Even when death separates you, that bond will remain. Nothing is more eternal than a vampire's love. Now that you understand this, are you still ready to swear yourselves to one another and enter into a binding union?

Bride & Groom:
Yes, we are.

Priest:
Very well. Repeat after me: (Feel free to copy & paste)
I, Andy promise Mikaela my unconditional love.

Andy:
I, Andy promise Mikaela my unconditional love.


Priest:
To be his trength when he is weak. To be his comfort when he grieves. To provide for him in times of need. And to laugh with him in times of joy.

Andy:
To be his strength when he is weak. To be his comfort when he grieves. To provide for he in times of need. And to laugh with he in times of joy.

Priest:
Your vows have been witnessed.

Priest:
Now Mikaela, Repeat after me:
I, Mikaela promise Andy my unconditional love.

Mikaela:
I, Mikaela promise Andy my unconditional love.

Priest:
To be his strength when he is weak. To be his comfort when he grieves. To provide for him in times of need. And to laugh with him in times of joy.

Mikaela:
To be his strength when he is weak. To be his comfort when he grieves. To provide for him in times of need. And to laugh with him in times of joy.

Priest:
Your vows have been witnessed.

Priest:
Andy, Take up the wine and pour some into the chalice. As you do so, repeat after me:

Mikaela, I pour out my life for you, I offer up my precious spirit. Let this sacrifice bind us, spirit to spirit, flesh to flesh. So that no earthly power may destroy our union.

Andy:
Mikaela, I pour out my life for you, I offer up my precious spirit. Let this sacrifice bind us, spirit to spirit, flesh to flesh. So that no earthly power may destroy our union.

Priest:

Groom:
Andy, I pour out my life for you, I offer up my precious spirit. Let this sacrifice bind us, spirit to spirit, flesh to flesh. So that no earthly power may destroy our union.


Personal Vows:
Andy, If you have personal vows to say to Mikaela, The time is now yours. (Let me know when you are finished.)

Andy:


Mikaela,If you have personal vows to say to Andy, The time is now yours. (Let me know when you are finished.)

Mikaela:


Priest:

Priest:
Our thanks to everyone who has gathered here tonight to bear witness to these vows, Please offer them your dark blessings for a long and joyous union. Go forth in darkness and light.

And now, It is my pleasure to present to you, Mikaela & Andy.
Please offer them your dark blessings for a long and joyous union. Go forth in darkness and light.
This basic wedding ceremony can be expanded upon to add elements of Pagan handfastings, more traditional aspects such as giving away the bride, and any number of alterations. It can also be altered to include a sanguine exchange between the bride and groom if they so choose this. For a Sanguinarian wedding ceremony, when the bride and groom exchange wine with one another, each of them should also make a small cut on one finger with a new, sterilized lancet, and add a few drops of their own blood to the wine they present to their partner.
This ceremony requires wine to be exchanged, and therefore you will need a bottle of wine and a chalice. The best man will handle the wine, the maid of honor carries the chalice. There is a place left for an exchange of personally-written vows between bride and groom, and an exchange of rings can be inserted here as well.

The Rite:

Priest:

Friends.

When we come into this world, we have only our selves, and most of our journey in life is walked alone. Some of us are content in our solitude, while others spend their whole lives searching for someone else to share with them their passions, their sorrows, and their joys.

A very lucky few of us can find that person: someone who helps us carry our burdens and achieve our dreams, just as we, in turn, help them.

It is a rare and wondrous occasion when we realize that we have found someone to build a life with; and such an occasion should be celebrated, solemnly and joyfully, among friends.

We are gathered here tonight because there are two souls among us who cry out for union.

They have walked together for a time now, and they have realized that they no longer wish to walk alone.

Would (brides name) and (grooms name) please step forward?

(The couple to be married steps forward. If a more traditional wedding ceremony is desired, the groom may step forward and wait by the priest while a friend or relative walks the bride forward to join them.)

Priest:
(Grooms name) and (brides name). By swearing yourselves to one another this night, you help forge a bond that will be with you in every time and in every place throughout the long journey of years.

Marriage is not merely a bond of the flesh; it is also a binding of souls.

When we touch one another, when we kiss and make love, we do not embrace only the body.

We touch the spirit as well.

The union of flesh is sacred and beautiful, but the union of souls is forever.

Even when death separates you, that bond will remain.

Nothing is more eternal than a vampire's love.

Now that you understand this, are you still ready to swear yourselves to one another and enter into a binding union?

Bride & Groom:
Yes, we are.

Priest:
Very well. Repeat after me:
(The priest takes the grooms hand and looks him in the eye. The Priest then says each line below, and the groom repeats it.)

Priest:
I, (grooms name) promise (brides name) my unconditional love.

Groom:
I, grooms name) promise (brides name) my unconditional love.

Priest:
To be her strength when she is weak. To be her comfort when she grieves. To provide for her in times of need. And to laugh with her in times of joy.

Groom:
To be her strength when she is weak. To be her comfort when she grieves. To provide for her in times of need. And to laugh with her in times of joy.

Priest:
Your vows have been witnessed.

(The priest releases his hand and takes up the hand of the bride.)

Priest:
Now, (brides name), repeat after me:
(The priest takes the brides hand and looks her in the eye. The Priest then says each line below, and the bride repeats it.)

Priest:
I, (brides name) promise (brides name) my unconditional love.

Bride:
I, (brides name) promise (grooms name) my unconditional love.

Priest:
To be his strength when he is weak. To be his comfort when he grieves. To provide for him in times of need. And to laugh with him in times of joy.

Bride:
To be his strength when he is weak. To be his comfort when he grieves. To provide for him in times of need. And to laugh with him in times of joy.

(Priest releases her hand)

(The best man brings forth the wine. The maid of honor brings forth a chalice. Red wine is preferred, for it represents blood. The wine should be uncorked before the ceremony to avoid any awkward difficulties. Both the cup-bearer and the wine-bearer stand close to the bride and groom.)

Priest:
(Grooms Name), take up the wine and pour some into the chalice. As you do so, repeat after me:

(Brides name), I pour out my life for you, I offer up my precious spirit.

Groom:
(Brides name), I pour out my life for you, I offer up my precious spirit.

Priest:
Let this sacrifice bind us, spirit to spirit, flesh to flesh.

Groom:
Let this sacrifice bind us, spirit to spirit, flesh to flesh.

Priest:
So that no earthly power may destroy our union.

Groom:
So that no earthly power may destroy our union.

(The Groom hands the bottle of wine back to the best man. Then he takes the cup from the maid of honor and raises it to the Brides lips. She drinks. The cup is then handed back to the maid of honor.)

Priest:
(Brides Name), Take up the wine and pour your future husband a portion. As you do so, repeat after me:

(Grooms name), I pour out my life for you, I offer up my precious spirit.

Bride:
(Grooms name), I pour out my life for you, I offer up my precious spirit.

Priest:
Let this sacrifice bind us, spirit to spirit, flesh to flesh.

Bride:
Let this sacrifice bind us, spirit to spirit, flesh to flesh.

Priest:
So that no earthly power may destroy our union.

Bride:
So that no earthly power may destroy our union.

(The Bride hands the bottle back to the best man and takes up the chalice. She raises this to her future husband and holds it as he drinks. Then she hands the chalice back to the maid of honor.)

Personal Vows:
(If the Bride and Groom have personal vows to make to one another, they can say them here.)

Conclusion:
Priest:
Everyone hear bears witness to this rite. Your hearts know that you two are wed. Kiss and show us all your passion.

(The Bride and Groom kiss. When they are finished, the Priest presents them to the audience.)

Priest:
Our thanks to everyone who has gathered here tonight to bear witness to these vows. May I present to you (Brides name and Grooms name).

Please offer them your dark blessings for a long and joyous union. Go forth in darkness and light.
Priest/Priestess:
Within every Masculine nature lies the Feminine. Within every Feminine nature lies the Masculine. The interplay of Masculine and Feminine forces, when flowing freely in a union based on true Love, finds many expressions.

Priest/Priestess:
Bride, do you come here of your own free will?

Bride:
I do.

Priest/Priestess:
Groom, do you come here of your own free will?

Groom:
I do.

Bride and Groom will now share vows they have wrote for each other
Bride you may start (Make sure to say end to let me know you are done)
Groom you may start (Make sure to day end to let me know you are done)


Priest/Priestess:
Bride, repeat after me:
(1) You cannot possess me, for I belong to myself.
(2) But I give you that which is mine to give.
(3)You cannot command me, for I am a free person.
(4) But I shall serve you in those ways that you require, and the honeycomb will taste sweeter coming from my hand.

Priest/Priestess:
Groom, repeat after me:
(1) You cannot possess me, for I belong to myself.
(2) But I give you that which is mine to give.
(3)You cannot command me, for I am a free person.
(4) But I shall serve you in those ways that you require, and the honeycomb will taste sweeter coming from my hand.

Priest/Priestess:
Will your love survive the harsh fires of change?

Bride:
It will

Groom:
It will

Priest/Priestess:
May your home be filled with warmth

Priest/Priestess:
Will your love survive the ebb and flow of feeling?

Bride:
It will

Groom:
It will

Priest/Priestess:
May your life together be filled with love

Priest/Priestess:
Will your love survive the times of stillness and restriction?

Bride:
It will

Groom:

Priest/Priestess:
May your union be strong

Priest/Priestess:
Will your love survive the clear light of day?

Bride:

Groom:

Priest/Priestess:
May your marriage be blessed by the Light of every new Dawn

Priest/Priestess:
Now you have lit a fire and that fire should not go out. The two of you now have a fire that represents love, understanding and a philosophy of life.

It will give you heat, food, warmth and happiness. The new fire represents a new beginning - a new life.

The fire should keep burning; you should stay together. You have lit the fire for life, until old age separates you.

Priest/Priestess:
The Rings of Marriage serve many purposes.

As rings are never-ending circles, they are a symbol of the never-ending commitment of marriage.

As permanent fixtures on your left hand, they are a reminder of the one person to which you have sworn your devotion.

And as jewelry, they enhance the hand, just as one life, through the joining of marriage, enhances another.

Bride and Groom, do you bring these powerful tokens?

Bride:
I do

Groom:
I do

Priest/Priestess:
Then before all present, repeat these words:

Bride facing Groom while putting the ring on his finger:
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you. Let it remind you always, as it circles your finger, of my eternal love, surrounding and enfolding you day and night.

Groom facing Bride while placing the ring on her finger
I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you. Let it remind you always, as it circles your finger, of my eternal love, surrounding and enfolding you day and night.

Priest/Priestess:
These rings are circles.

Each represents the full circle of a life, as one is given into the care of the other.

All of you standing in a circle, holding hands, represent the community that will surround and support this marriage with love and friendship.

No partnership exists in a vacuum. It is beholden upon each of you to honor and respect this union.

Priest/Priestess:
Bride is handed a lighted taper by her mother who says I bring you the warmth of my heart
Groom is handed a lighted taper by his father who says I bring you the light of my love.

Priest/Priestess:
Above you are the stars, below you are the stones.

Remember always, like a star, your love should be constant.

Like the Earth, your love should be firm. Be understanding and patient, for storms may come and go.

Be free always in giving affection and warmth, for it is the currency of a happy marriage.

Priest/Priestess:
Bride and Groom light a single candle held by the Priest/Priestess.

Priest/Priestess:
May the warmth and light of your union be blessed.

May you know the best of fortune, and your life together be one of joy and prosperity.

Do you swear to keep sacred your vows?

Bride:
I do

Groom:
I do

Priest/Priestess:
Then seal your promise with a kiss.

Bride and Groom you may turn to face outward toward the guests
I present to you -----------------.
