A Day of Firsts- A Life Time Hereafter


A Day of Firsts – A life time hereafter,

‘I do’ – A promise of love – on Oath

The first line of this new chapter-

Mr and Mrs – the first kiss for you both

With your first dance of married life.


The handsome groom and beautiful bride

Celebrate these firsts hand in hand, side by side.


These firsts should not fade out of sight

Each day a new discovery,

Charting new firsts full of delight,

Saying ‘I love you!’ should be compulsory,

Kisses each morning, kisses each night,

A toast to the future, A toast to each other

A toast to your love shining bright.


The handsome groom and beautiful bride

Celebrate your journey with love alongside.


Keep dancing to the rhythm of love

Listen to the beat of your marriage –

Capture the magic of many firsts

Together, make memories that age

To share with others chapter and verse.


To the handsome groom and his beautiful bride

I celebrate your marriage with love and pride.
