Graces for the Wedding Feast

Grace
Tessa Wilkinson

As N and N share this meal together as a married couple
may it be the first of many meals shared with family and friends.
May there always be …
a welcome at their door,
a space at their table
and a generosity of spirit.
God bless all who sit here today.
May they leave rejoicing in the knowledge of God’s love for them.
Amen.

As we share food together today, let us thank God
for the farmer who grew it,
for the shop who sold it,
for the chefs who cooked it,
and for the people who will serve it,
grown, harvested, prepared and served by others
so that we can come and celebrate today.
We thank you, God, for this feast
and for all who have played a part in bringing it to this table.
Praise God!
Amen.

Heavenly Father,
we thank you for this joyful day.
You have filled N and N with your abundant love,
they have made their marriage vows
and now they are man and wife!
You spread a feast before us
and for this we ask your blessing.
In days and years to come
may there always be a welcome in their home,
a place at their table, and food to share.
Amen.

Grace
Jan Brind

May God,
whose love surrounds us,
whose joy overflows in us,
whose hope sustains us,
be present at this wedding feast.
May this food and this wine
be blessed and shared
as we give thanks and praise to God!
Amen.

N and N…
Like the champagne bubbles - may you fizz.
Like the candle’s flicker - may you be people of light
Like the music that plays - may you skip through life.
Like the pillars on the wedding cake - may you stand firm in God’s love.     
May you be blessed by God today, and through all your days together.
Amen.

The bride and the bridegroom have come to the feast.
May God bless them!
Their family and friends are gathered around them.
May God bless them!
We remember those not able to be here.
May God bless them!
May the blessing of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
be with us all as we share this feast together.
Amen. 

Grace

O God, you send us from above
your gifts of joy and wondrous love.
As now we gather here to dine
please bless to us this food and wine.
Amen.

Grace
Tessa Wilkinson

The family is gathered,
the guests have arrived,
the vows are exchanged,
the marriage is blessed,
the tables are laid,
and the food is prepared.
Let us break bread together.
Praise God and rejoice!
Amen. 

Grace
Jan Brind

This is the day the Lord has made!
With love and joy and hope inlaid!
We give him thanks, before we dine,
For broken bread and jugs of wine
May God the Father, our high priest,
Send down his blessing on this feast!
Amen.
