Here are some different (but well-accepted) ones. Or were you looking for something that’s not normally used at weddings at all? 

 Matthew 22:35-40
One of the Pharisees (a scholar of the law) tested Jesus by asking, "Teacher, which commandment in the
law is the greatest?" He said to him, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul,
and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love
your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."

 

John 15:9-12
Jesus said to his disciples: "As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my
commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his
love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. This is my
commandment: love one another as I love you."

John 15:12-16
Jesus said to his disciples: "This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater
love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no
longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends,
because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who
chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my
name he may give you."

John 17:20-26
Long form
Jesus looked up to heaven and prayed: "Holy Father, I pray not only for my disciples, but also for those
who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you,
that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. And I have given them the glory you
gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to
perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.
Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory
that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world. Righteous Father, the world also
does not know you, but I know you, and they know that you sent me. I made known to them your name and I
will make it known, that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them."


John 17:20-23
Short form
Jesus looked up to heaven and prayed: "Holy Father, I pray not only for my disciples, but also for those
who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you,
that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. And I have given them the glory you
gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to
perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me

 

Matthew 19:3-6
Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and tested him, saying, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for
any cause whatever?" He said in reply, "Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them
male and female’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,
and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined
together, no human being must separate."
