19th Century Marriage Vows

The story I am currently working on is set in 1825 (the year of large sleeves and small corsets) and one its crucial plot elements centres around the vows in the Church of England Wedding Ceremony. That being the case, getting the correct era-appropriate vows is essential. It is with great pleasure, therefore, that I stumbled upon Laura Vivanco's Teach me Tonight blog featuring a thoughtful and extensive essay by guest blogger Virginia on the history of wedding vows through the ages. It is a truly excellent reference for anyone with an interest in the subject - thoughtful, scholarly and absolutely fascinating.
