Here are three sets of wedding vows in Swedish, as used by the Swedish Church, and an English translation.

Option 1

  • Vows from the groom to the bride:

    Inför Gud och denna församlings (dessa vittnens) närvaro frågar jag dig, (groom's name): Vill du ta (bride's name) till din hustru och älska henne i nöd och lust?
    Before Almighty God and this assembly (these witnesses) in attendance, I ask (groom's name): Will you take (bride's name) to be your wife and love her in distress and pleasure?

    Groom:

    Ja
    Yes.
  • Vows from the bride to the groom:

    Minister:
