We had a similar blessing at our wedding. It was right before the final prayer (Catholic ceremony w/o Mass). It was pretty much as you described, but I think it was just called “Blessing” or “Final Blessing.”

In my anglican ceremony, the father doesn’t really give the bride away outloud (even though my Dad will walk me down the aisle).  The following two “blessings” are used:

The celebrant may address the following question to the families of the bride and bridegroom.

Do you, members of the families of Bride and Groom, give your blessing to this marriage?

Answer  We do.

The celebrant addresses the following to all present.

You are the witnesses to these vows now being made. Will you do all in your power to support and uphold this marriage?

Answer   We will.
