Rules about how a Law Authority shall conduct a Marriage Ceremony

Whereas Mr …………….(full name of bridegoom) ……………… occupation …………(domicile)……………………and Miss………………(full name etc of bride)

have presented themselves here in order that the marriage in which they desire to be united, be established under the Marriage Act and whereas all provisions of said law have been fulfilled, the couple will now be married. But before you my dear bridal couple, be united in wedlock, it is my duty as a Government authority to admonish you about the importance of the marital vow and of the union which you are about to enter. The vow which you are hereby going to make to each other is an irrevocable promise of love and loyalty, of mutual help and support of the family through the whole of your married life. To this you both pledge yourselves in the moment and take the authority as the witness thereto.

Confident that you have both observed this thoroughly and that you are present here in the firm resolution to keep the promise you give, I promise to you in the name of the Government of the Republic of Iceland all the rights connected with a lawful marriage and impose upon you all the duties which married couples have toward one another and toward others.

I therefore ask you, (name of bridegroom)…………….. are you willing to take (name of bride)……………………as your lawfull wife?

In the same way I ask you (name of bride)………………..are you willing to take (name of bridegroom)……………………as your lawful husband?

Hence, I declare as Government authority in this place that (bridegroom)………………… and (bride)………………………… are legally married.

May good fortune, happiness and prosperity be with you in this union.
