Myself and my partner are getting married in July and our daughter would like to do a reading at our wedding. We are having a church wedding so can choose one religious reading which will be read by another family member and a non religious reading which we would like our dd to read. Any ideas please x

Owl and the Pussycat? It was done at a wedding I was once at and it was really lovely

I went to a wedding that had a reading from the Velveteen Rabbit which was lovely (Google and the passage will come up)

We changed a Pam Ayres poem and made it more about us for our DDs to read. It went down fabulously!

He never leaves the seat up
No wet towels on the floor,
But the garden shed overflows with junk
His bikes bursting out the door.

She's kind of clean and tidy
Though she sometimes may delude,
If you leave your shoes around the place
She soon gets in a mood!

He likes to watch his favourite team
Especially when City win,
Whereas she likes watching One Born,
Or anything with babies in.

He'll go and be the hero,
If a spider gives her a fright
She tries to keep us children quiet
So he can sleep at night

She's thoughtful when he looks at her
A smile upon his face,
Will he look that good in 30 years
When his dentures aren't in place?!

He says he loves her figure
And her mental prowess too,
But when gravity takes her over
Will she charm with her IQ?

She says she loves his cooking
And his breakfast is a must,
And of course she thinks he's handsome
Which in her eyes is a plus!

They're both not wholly perfect
But who are we to judge,
He can be a stubborn man
Her opinion she wont budge!

All that said and done
They have lots of fun together,
And I hope as I am sure you do
That this day will last forever.

He'll be more than just her husband
He'll also be her friend,
And she'll be more than just his wife
She'll be his soulmate -till the end!

I had my 8yr old read the Velveteen rabbit passage. Be warned there is a reference to things buzzing that folk might smirk at (if they are a smutty disposition)

We had A Lovely Love Story (the dinosaur one) and He Never Leaves The Seat Up at ours, both went down really well smile

We had a poem just called A Family, by anon:

A family is a place where you can cry and laugh,
and be silly, or sad, or cross, where you can ask for help,
and tease and yell at each other, and know that you will always be loved. -
A family is made up of people who care about you when you are sad,
who love you all the time, no matter what, and who share your good times.
They don't expect you to be perfect,
but just want you to try to be the best you can be.
A family is a safe place like a circle,
where we learn to like ourselves,
where we learn about making good choices,
where we learn to think about things before we do them
where we learn to be honest, and to have table manners,
and respect for other people,
where we are special, where we share ideas,
where we listen to them and they listen to us,
where we learn the rules of life to prepare ourselves for the world.
The world is a place where anything can happen.
If we grow up in a loving family… like our family
we are ready for the world.

I know this is a bit of an old thread but in case it helps I've found this reading that my 9 year old daughter will be doing at our wedding. We wanted something fun and light hearted and not too long.

Mummy and Daddy get married today
I'd like to help them on their way.
So here's some special advice from me
To help them with our family.
Keep our house filled with laughter
Let's have fun forever after.
Keep the drawer filled up with treats
And give us children lots of sweets.
Make sure that you spend time together
To keep your happiness forever.
Make sure you spend lots of time with us
And then us kids won't make a fuss.
But the most important thing for you
Is to show your love in all you do.
A caring word, a kiss, a touch
And family cuddles that mean so much.

The site I first saw this on had 'daddy' replaced with future step father's name which I thought was really sweet xx
