Daniel’s vows to Angie

 ...From the moment I first met you I knew in my heart of hearts you were the one for me. I tried in the beginning to keep it professional because we worked together, but there was just something about you that I couldn’t resist.

You are so beautiful both inside and out, and your kind soul simply amazes me still today.
You know me better than I know myself and somehow you still manage to love me. You are my best friend and one true love.
There is still a part of me that cannot believe I’m the one who gets to marry you.

I promise to be your faithful husband, I vow to love you when the sun shines, when the rain falls, in sickness, and in health, through good times and bad.

Today, I join my life to yours, not merely as your husband, but as your friend, your lover, and your confidant. Let me be the shoulder you lean on, the rock on which you rest, the companion of your life.

With you I will walk my path from this day forward....

Georgie’s vows to Ward

...I love everything about you – but mostly your kindness. The man who takes an old lady to see her childhood home because nobody else would, who pays for elderly peoples parking tickets when they can’t work the machine – and stops the mowing halfway because you spotted a frog and you didn’t want them to get run over.

I will always let you:
Decide what movie we are going to watch because lets-be-honest I will fall asleep 10 minutes in; and Put sweet things in our savoury meals even though the two definitely don’t go together.

Thank you for choosing me, for loving me, for telling me I can have as many animals as I want and for being my biggest supporter no matter where life takes me.

My life is infinitely better knowing I get to spend today and all of my tomorrows with you.

Alex’s vows to Maddy

...I love that 5 years ago you had no interest in AFL but have now surrendered to the Graham family pressure and have a St Kilda Football Club membership even with a dedicated seat.

You are my favourite person and I look forward to continuing to build our life together and see our future being full of family, furbabies, travel, adventure, fun and laughter.

I promise to always support you, believe in you and encourage your passions.

I promise to be a safe space for your secrets and vulnerabilities

I promise to try my hardest to step away from my stubbornness and accept that I am not always right I promise to make us and our family a priority

I promise to respect you, love you openly and fiercely and tell you I love you each and every day....

Laura’s vows to Tiarna

...From the moment I met you, despite your tough and slightly grumpy exterior at times, your intelligence captivated me, your generosity filled me with warmth, your witty sense of humour made me laugh and your dependable nature always made me feel safe.

I love that you allow me to be completely myself – no matter how geeky, nerdy or awkward that may be

I love the purity of being in the present moment with you, our gratitude for our life together, our home, our greyhound, and the confidence that our future journey in life together will be filled with love, happiness, adventure and success.

I promise I will always be your biggest supporter and fan. I will stand by you and help you overcome any challenges, and celebrate in your success. I will always be here to listen, and nurture your dreams of the future.

I promise to never go to bed angry, to hold your hand every night falling asleep and tell you how much I love you every morning when I wake up...

Mark’s vow to Kerrie

I ask the people here present to witness that I, Mark, take you, Kerrie, to be my lawful wedded wife.

My love: Kerrie, I love you. I love you for your cheeky grin, your compassion and your warmth.
I love that when I look into your eyes regardless of your mood I always see unconditional love; and I love that you are the first person I see every morning and the last I see every night.

The moment when I realised that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you was when your papou was first in hospital back in 2008. I saw how hard you fought for him and your family during that horrible period, which resulted in your papou getting a new lease on life. It made me realise that having someone that hustles that hard for their loved ones, was someone that I wanted to grow old with.

Why we are here and our history: Kerrie today I am super excited as I get marry you, my BFF, the one I will live with, dream with, and love forever.
You are truly my perfect side kick as we have evolved & calibrated ourselves to be the perfect partnership over the last decade which has been filled with incredible adventures, joys and sorrows.

I look with joy down the path of our tomorrows, knowing we will walk it together and I have already started planning the pranks we will play on the kids when we are both old and senile.

My promise:

I promise to be your BFF, lover, and sidekick, Your partner in raising little cubs,
Your fiercest protector and toughest adversary , Your unconditional hugger,
Your comrade in adventure,
Your consolation in disappointment,
Your accomplice in mischief & above-all your rock
These are the promises that I have been fulfilling to you over the last decade and which I promise to fulfil until our time has come to pass

Ryan’s vows to Nikki

I ask the people here present to witness that I, Ryan, take you, Nikki, to be my lawful wedded wife.

I am so proud to stand here with you today, after all of our years together, to finally be marrying you.

You are the most amazing woman, and the most amazing mother to our son Fletch, and I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together as husband and wife.

I'm so grateful for the hurdles we have had to overcome, because they have made us so strong that I know we will not just survive an eternity together, we will thrive together.

Today, I promise to have and to hold you from this day forward, for better, for worse,
for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health,
to love and support you;
and to stand well back from the mirror when I brush my teeth, until the zombie apocalypse or death do us part.

Nicole May White, I love you and will always love you, forever.
