NowraJanBride:  we’re having ‘Us Two’ by AA Milne. It’s a sweet poem and quite popular.  AA Milne has loads of other poems as well that might suit an outdoor wedding because a lot of them are set in the hundred acre wood.

We chose Us Two because it says pooh a lot and the person reading it loves toilet humour so it suited her but also because the ‘theme’ of our wedding has sort of become things that will amuse us or our guests. The nieces and nephews will find the word pooh funny and so will we (I know it doesn’t sound like it but I swear we’re old enough to get married). First verse:

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,

There’s always Pooh and Me.

Whatever I do, he wants to do,

“Where are you going today?” says Pooh:

“Well, that’s very odd ‘cos I was too.

Let’s go together,” says Pooh, says he.

“Let’s go together,” says Pooh.

I always like apracticalwedding.com for this sort of thing. They have lots of articles filled with things for the ceremony, and then users comment to add their own.

I agree with geneva2 – apracticalwedding.com is a fantastic resource for this sort of thing. That’s where I found our readings. We used The Union by Robert Fulghum, a Carl Sagan-inspired reading, and a John Muir reading. Actually, the Muir one wasn’t from APW. Here it is: 

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love.”
