Declaration of Marriage

The declaration takes place after the vows have been legally spoken, and immediately proceeding the signing and witnessing of the Marriage Certificates and Marriage Registry.

...There is a thousand, thousand reasons why this life must be lived, each one sufficient...

The words spoken are something similar to:

Ladies and Gentlemen, ______________________ and ______________________ have declared before me and before all of you, their family and friends, that they will live together in marriage, they have symbolized it by joining hands, taking vows and by exchanging rings.

I therefore, declare ______________________ and ______________________ to be Husband and Wife.

“______________________, you may now kiss your bride”
