Readings for Weddings is an inspirational collection of Bible quotations, poems, hymns and prose for secular weddings, church ceremonies and services of blessing.
Mark Oakley includes such 'wedding classics' as 1 Corinthians 13 and Khalil Gibran's The Prophet, the poetry of Shelley and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, verse by Wendy Cope and other witty, contemporary poets. 'I have tested Mark Oakley's Readings for Weddings with a number of couples I have been preparing for marriage over the last few years.
They have been universally grateful for such a rich and varied quarry from which they have been able, in every case, to extract something which was highly appropriate but which would otherwise never have been discovered.' Richard Chartres, Bishop of London
