DORIC - On Your Wedding Day, for my Grandpa... please help!


I'm getting married in 7 weeks. Sadly, my grandpa passed away recently. He was very proud of our history and spoke Doric every day. 

I'd like to have a reading at our wedding spoken in Doric and a toast for him, but I can't translate it. Could anyone help, please?

Here it is:

On Your Wedding Day
Author Unknown

Today is a day you will always remember
The greatest in anyone’s life
You’ll start off the day just two people in love
And end it as Husband and Wife

It’s a brand new beginning the start of a journey
With moments to cherish and treasure
And although there’ll be times when you both disagree
These will be surely outweighed by pleasure

You’ll have heard many words of advice in the past
When the secrets of marriage were spoken
But you know that the answers lie hidden inside
Where the bond of true love lies unbroken

So live happily forever as lovers and friends
It’s the dawn of a new life for you
As you stand there together with love in your eyes
From the moment you whisper “I Do”

And with luck, all your hopes, and your dreams can be real
May success find its way to your hearts
Tomorrow can bring you the greatest of joys
But today is the day it all starts
