Karina's Advice

Underrated Romantic words which can be included
in your ceremony words or vows

Struggling for the words?

That’s okay – authors, poets and playwrights have been crafting beautiful quotes for hundreds of years for you to use on your special occasion. I’ve curated a short list of a few underrated gems.

1. “When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are to become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. … Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away.”

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernières

2. “You are sunlight through a window, which I stand in, warmed. My darling.”

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

3. “Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

4. “He was my North, my South, my East and West, My working week and my Sunday rest.”

Stop All The Clocks by W.H. Auden

5.  “You might not have been my first love, but you were the love that made all the other loves irrelevant”

Milk and honey by Rupi Kaur

6. “People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.”

Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
