When a man and a woman first meet
they go courting together, fall in love
and finally they both decide to get married
they either meet in a church
or in some other special place of their choosing
to have the wedding celebrations.

As is customary, the groom is not supposed to
see the bride until the exchanging of the vows
as the bride walks towards the groom
it is time for the wedding ceremony to begin
they both look at each other in amazement
finding it hard to believe that
it is finally their turn to be married
they now exchange there wedding rings and vows.

The wedding ceremony is now over
as the couple approach the wedding car
which is bound for their wedding reception
there, they give thanks to their families and friends.
It is a now the start of their new life together
as husband and wife they depart on their honeymoon.
It is their decision whether to have children or not
but all of this must be a total commitment
of love and marriage.
