from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Rachel and Michael used this piece from Jane Eyre as their only reading during their wedding ceremony. They said: ” It is us”

I have for the first time found what I can truly love –I have found you. You are my sympathy –my better self –my good angel; I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my center and spring of life, wraps my existence about you –and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one. It was because I felt and knew this, that I resolved to marry you.
