If you’re looking to have a religious wedding at an exclusive wedding venue, you’ll want to find quotes from the Bible that are very meaningful to you as a couple. A wedding is the celebration of two people being joined together to become one, a declaration of their love for one other in front of a priest or a pastor and loved ones, and a lifelong promise to be faithful to one another till death do them part. But most importantly, the bride and groom enter into a covenant with God as they become one in the eyes of God. Here are our top choices for appropriate and meaningful Bible readings that are suitable to any Christian wedding:

Ecclesiastes Chapter 4:9-12

Two is better than one

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work.

10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

1 John Chapter 4: 7-12

God is Love

7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.

8 Whoever who does not love does not love God, because God is love.

9 This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him.

10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

12 No-one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.

Romans Chapter 12: 9-12

How to love one another

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honour one another above yourselves.

11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord.

12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Ruth Chapter 1: 16-17

Commitment to one another

16 But Ruth replied: “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go, I will go and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.”

Solomon’s Song Chapter 8: 6-7

Love each other passionately

6 Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like a blazing fire, like a mighty flame.

7 Many waters cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned.
