Ring Blessings

If they wish to emphasise the religious significance of the wedding bands, many couples include a simple ring blessing as part of their wedding ceremony.

To do this, I will bless each ring before it is given, often saying a few words about what the rings represent and how they connect the couple to God as well as to each other.

It is widely accepted that wedding rings symbolise many marital attributes, including fidelity, honour, and commitment as well as romance and love. Christian rings, in particular, also emphasise the spiritual nature of the vows by not only representing the couple’s love but also the love of God for the couple and their commitment to honour Him with the sanctity of their marriage.

By making these promises before God, the couple incorporates a deeper spiritual element into their union and emphasizes the role that God will play in their marriage.
