Of the many rituals that may be included in your wedding ceremony, the unity candle may be the most popular; here is one idea for a reading to accompany the moment when you light your candle together.

Unity Candle Reading

A medieval mystic wrote: ‘From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. It is a joyous day when souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together and a single, brighter light goes forth from their united being. This single light is made up of all, but does not mean that the individuals are lost; their individual light is made more magnificent joined in unity. May the remembrance of this light guide you when life is uncertain, and illuminate you when life is joyful.
