A Northern Tradition Wedding Blessing

May the Nornir witness what is spoken here today.
May this blessing weave itself well into the threads of wyrd
And shine as a beacon in memory’s hall.

From the peaceful world of Helheim, may you be blessed.
May your ancestors rejoice in your union
And bless you with their collective wisdom.

From the icy world of Niflheim, may you be blessed.
May the winds of change smile upon you
And may you always find clarity in communication.

From the dark world of Svartalfheim, may you be blessed.
May the duergar grant you a craftsman’s skill,
And may you create a marriage equal to an artisan’s masterpiece.

From the fiery world of Muspelheim, may you be blessed.
May your marriage be one of passion for each other
And may that passion never waver.

From the tumultuous world of Jotunheim, may you be blessed.
May your commitment endure growing stronger
Even in the midst of disagreement.

From the joyfully complex world of Midgard, may you be blessed.
May your marriage grow strong, enduring roots
And may those roots give you both wings to soar.

From the bounteous world of Vanaheim, may you be blessed.
May your marriage bring you abundance,
And may your home be one of joy.

From the glittering world of Alfheim, may you be blessed.
May you never feel the need to wear masks with each other,
And may you seek the truth of your hearts together.

From the mighty world of Asgard, may you be blessed.
May pride bow its head before the grace of compromise
And together may your marriage thrive.

Let wyrd witness what is spoken here today.
May Mani guide you,
May Sunna shelter you,
May Freya and Frigga smile upon you both
All the days of your life,
And may those days be filled with all good things.
