As well as readings selected from traditional poems or literature, a new type of wedding reading has emerged in recent years – extracts from children’s books.
At first glance, these may seem lighthearted, but children's books can express profound thoughts and philosophy about life in a very concise manner, which makes them ideal for wedding readings. At the same time, they can be romantic, quirky, cute and playful!
