A search for script fonts online should turn up a similiar usable font for free or there are many excellent web sites where very hi quality fonts can be purchased such as this site here: http://www.letterheadfonts.com/fonts/styles/scripts.php

There are also FONT EDITORS available that will allow you to create your very own fonts as required for your application.

good luck

If you run MS Windows, you should have a font called Old English already installed on your computer.

Here is this link http://www.abstractfonts.com/category/10/Old+English Look for the Marriage on Page 6
I typed Dadis then changed the text to curves and mirrored the " d "
I hope this helps. Here is a quick sample:
