The Wedding Scene

This scene opens with Friar Lawrence and Romeo at the church, waiting for Juliet to arrive for the wedding. Friar Lawrence hopes that they will not be punished in days to come. Romeo says that no matter what, that warning will never compare to the event that is to follow. Friar Lawrence warns that, like gunpowder and fire, passions such as these are domed to die in their prime. Juliet enters, and Romeo embraces her. Both of them express how they felt about each other. Friar Lawrence then tells them its time to begin, because they cannot be left alone together, until they are married. He then blesses Romeo and Juliet and they are made husband and wife.


"A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri
Romeo and Juliet Wedding, Scene 2 Act 6


I chose this song , "A Thousand Years," because I could visualize Romeo singing it to Juliet. He sings about his feelings, his fears and doubts, and how he feels about her. When he sees her in the church,

"all of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow,"

and in this, he finds the strength and courage he needs for them to face what ever comes next. Though they didn't have to wait a thousand years to be together, their love for each other is infinite.

"Darling don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more."
