Wedding Poem for Alex and Claire

 alex and claire

The day of celebration’s here
Guests await, hearts full of cheer
To witness joining of two hearts
At place of beauty Sedgwick Park

Fair Claire Kenyon and Alex Kent
Far away to Thailand went
On eve of decade hand in hand
They made their promise on the sand   

Now bride and groom in sparkling beauty
Honoured guests with special duties
Friends and family bright and gay
Stand together on longest day

The long awaited moment’s come
When loving hearts can join as one
He takes her hand, looks in her eyes
Full of love for him, she sighs

Words of love and vows are spoken
Rings exchanged, a sacred token
Love is sealed and man and wife
Enjoy first kiss of married life

A rush of joy bursts all around
Cheers of love and happiness sound
The time for celebration’s come
Now the marriage vows are done

Throughout the day the happy throng
Feast and dance with poems and song
In friendship, love and family pride
For son and daughter, groom and bride

And then sun sets on longest day
All turn to bride and groom and say
It’s time to start your life together
Side by side, whate’er the weather

We wish your hearts remain this open
That words of love be always spoken
That kindness thoughtfulness and care
And comfort be forever there

That love will only blossom and grow
So that you will both come to know
This sacred gift from heaven above
The blessing of eternal love
