A witty, heartfelt marriage poem which explores the extraordinary and everyday aspects of being in a relationship.

Our funny, honest and moving marriage print makes the perfect gift for weddings, anniversaries and valentines day. It is also suitable as a reading at a wedding ceremony.

The poem was hand inked by artist Peter Gander (no computer fonts here) and the A4 print is a glicee (or high resolution) reproduction of the original.

You can purchase the print unframed or framed in one of our two white A4 frames.

Written by Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller, this poem has featured in magazines such as 'Wedding Ideas' and 'Unique Bride'. In 2013 Joanna won the Wedding Industry Experts award for 'Best Wedding Writer'.

Whether it's snoring, Sunday roasting or shoulder-providing, everyone will recognise the range of shared experiences and feelings 'What is a Marriage?' describes.

What is a Marriage?

It’s loving & cherishing, loyally relishing.

It’s hosting & toasting & Sunday roasting.

It’s enduring, alluring & most reassuring.

It’s guessing, confessing & nightly undressing.

It’s often surprising, involves compromising

It’s mending, depending, & can be heart-rending

It’s trying, relying, a little white lying.

It’s snoring, adoring, occasionally boring.

It’s knowing & showing, & mutually growing.

It’s packing & moving, anxiety soothing.

It’s having & holding, the odd little scolding.

It’s nursing, & cursing when driving (reversing).

It’s compliment giving & always forgiving.

It’s planning & booking & help with unhooking.

It’s sharing & caring & dressing gown wearing.

It’s walking, it’s talking & bottle uncorking.

It’s tender supporting & raucous cavorting.

It’s secret confiding & shoulder providing.

It’s readily praising & often amazing.

It’s loving, respecting & calmly accepting.

It’s cleaning, it’s mopping, it’s waltzing & bopping

It’s needing, conceding & possibly breeding.

It’s chatting, conspiring & thoughts of retiring.

It’s playing & paying, it’s coping & staying.

It’s comfort when weeping, a warm body sleeping.

It’s lives interweaving and always believing.

That’s what makes a marriage.

The poem is printed onto the highest quality GF Smith white A4 card (330gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. The poem was originally hand inked by an artist and then a glicee print produced (this is when a work of fine art is scanned professionally using a very high resolution, and then reprinted.)

The lightweight wooden frames are either stepped matt white with a slightly grained effect, or smooth satin white. Each frame has a hook for wall hanging. The front is Perspex. There is no mount around the print.

Each frame is hand-finished in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers. The framed product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box. Unframed prints are sent out in super-stiff envelopes.


The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and dimensions when framed are H34.5 x W25.7 x D2cm
