We wrote a wedding toast for a lovely couple adapted from a traditional wedding toast. Please feel free to include it at your wedding!

May the bees bear witness to this wedding and may you be to each other both strong and gentle.

May golden honey sweeten your words on cold evenings, each being warmth and comfort to the other.

May all who follow your lives with affection, rejoice in your happiness and in the brave and generous living which makes life beautiful.

Though you are two persons, but there is one life before you.

May all here gathered toast this couple with love in their hearts, mead in their glass and honesty in their joy.

Merry meets and merry parts. We drink to you with all our hearts.

Long life and happiness.

Mead is known as the honeymoon drink. Served at weddings for millennia
