Bride: I will. And I ask you, ___, to be my husband. To be devoted and faithful, loving and supporting me and working for the good of our relationship and our family, Will you promise this?

Groom: I will.

Registrar/celebrant: As ___ and __ come together as husband and wife, they create a new family, The children of  __ and __ are now going to ask for a promise from their parents.

Children (together or taking one line each): Will you accept us as part of your family together? Will you love and care for us? Will you guide and support us?

Bride and Groom: We will

Registrar/Celebrant: Today __, __ and their children have made anew family, and together they promise to consider each other, to be loving, respectful and devoted to each othe
