Our Top Wedding Readings from the Movies


When it comes to wedding planning, it’s important to include moments that showcase your personalities as a couple. Along with your music selections and entertainment choices, a great way to do this is through the ceremony readings. While literature and poetry are common choices, make sure to look into your favourite cinema moments too. The Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have pulled together a list of their top wedding readings from the movies, to give you the inspiration you need for your special day…


  • When Harry Met Sally

This classic movie line will not only make you and your guests smile, but it’s a great speech that can be altered to truly reflect who you are as a couple too…


I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realise you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – Harry Burns


  • The Notebook

For a room full of tears, you can always count on The Notebook for a romantic monologue…


“Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it was like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory.” — Noah


  • The Wedding Singer

For the ultimate 90s throwback, The Wedding Singer provides a beautiful speech for your wedding reading…


“I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad. Carry you around when your arthritis is bad. All I wanna do is grow old with you. I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches. Build you a fire if the furnace breaks. Oh, it could be so nice, growing old with you. I’ll miss you, kiss you, give you my coat when you are cold, need you, feed you, even let you hold the remote control. So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink. Put you to bed if you’ve had too much to drink. I could be the man who grows old with you, I wanna grow old with you” – Robbie Hart


  • Star Trek

Whether you’re a Trekkie or not, this stunning speech from Star Trek perfectly summarises the mystery of love…


“Commander, I don’t think you can analyse love. It’s the greatest mystery of all. No one knows why it happens or doesn’t. Love is a chance combination of elements. Any one thing might be enough to keep it from igniting—a mood, a glance… a remark. And if we could define love…predict it…it would probably lose its power.” — Neelix


  • Sleepless in Seattle

For quotes that are just as romantic as the movie itself, Sleepless in Seattle has a script full of lines that are sure to get you and your guests in the spirit of love…


 “It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together… and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home… only to no home I’d ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car, and I knew. It was like… magic.”- Sam Baldwin
