The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman

If you and your partner both love to read and have been searching for a wedding reading from literature, this beautiful extract from Philip Pullman’s ‘The Amber Spyglass’ could be ideal.

It’s not overly sentimental making it a dream choice for couples who want an alternative wedding reading to the typical gushingly romantic pieces – this text is romantic but in it’s own way. Who doesn’t feel compelled by the idea of atoms searching for their other half and becoming totally inseparable? It perfectly describes the totally consuming, passionate love that is the basis for a dream marriage.

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman

I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till i find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… we’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… and when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…
