'How do I love thee . . .?'

Wedding require public voices - speeches and responses - but along with these, people often want to have a poem read to mark their marriage in a personal way. Whether it's a poem or a poet from the past, it will be a means of finding the right words to celebrate a very special occasion.

When attending friends' weddings - and because she's an actress - Julia Watson has often been asked to read a poem. In the same way, many people have asked her for ideas about what to choose. In this book, she has collected over ninety poems and readings for weddings.
