High arcan Lovers and high arcan Hierophant and low arcan Three of Cups combination - Marriage/wedding, also…
Lovers tarot card

Card 1 - Lovers

In the Lovers card, the man and the woman in the image are being protected and blessed by an angel above. The couple seems secure and happy in their home, which appears to be the Garden of Eden. The fruit tree with the snake behind the woman is a reference to that story, which tells of humanity's fall into temptation and into the realm of flesh and sensuality. The angel depicted here is Raphael, the angel of air - who is of the same element of the zodiac sign that governs this card: Gemini. Air is associated with mental activity, and communication in particular, which is the foundation for healthy relationships. His blessing seems to give this card a sense of balance and harmony, the symbolization of union in a grand and cosmic sense between two opposing forces. 

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Relationship cards are relevant, also when in combination with marriage/commitment cards (see full explanation under The Hierophant) Two of Cups (close loving union).

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Hermit usually signifies a sense of aloneness. For some the Nine of Pentacles also indicates this, although it can represent financial independence or an independent person, rather than being alone. 

Lovers combinations
For a love triangle I’d normally look for secrecy cards in close proximity, plus the addition of a King or Queen Court card (outside the couple in question) may also point to third party involvement, although it can sometimes be outside interference, not always an actual affair etc. The Lovers is an easy card to apply to combinations; try using “love relationship” in application to cards before or after, for instance: Ace of Cups to Lovers would show the start of a new relationship, for a married couple it may show a new beginning that brings happiness to the relationship. As you would expect, lots of Cups combinations…

Hierophant tarot card

Card 2 - Hierophant

The card depicts a religious figure that sits in a rather formal environment characteristic for a church. He is wearing three elaborate vestments which are designated to represent the three different worlds. His right hand is properly raised in an act of benediction, a sign of blessing – it s the same hand that the Magician has raised. In his other hand, he carries a triple cross, which is associated traditionally with the pope. Each of the horizontal bars in the cross are thought to represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Beneath him, two acolytes are seated, representing the transfer of sacred knowledge within institutions. Through these acolytes, the card also comes to represent following the path to knowledge and education. This card is also known as the High Priest in certain decks - as well as the Pope. He is acting as the masculine counterpart of another card which is known as the High Priestess. This card is ruled by Taurus. 

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
The wisdom of The Hermit, sometimes the structure of The Emperor. Marriage and family cards would strengthen that association.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
nbsp; The Fool (free spirit and adventurous) The Hanging Man (thinking outside the box, unconventional) The Devil (excess, not following moral codes).

Hierophant combinations
When appearing together with other marriage cards it would strengthen the association, such as: Ten of Cups, The Lovers, Two of Cups, Four of Wands, Three of Cups, The Empress. The Ten of Pentacles, Ace of Pentacles (sometimes Justice), may also be included as supportive for what they represent, (but not in isolation). There are quite a lot of different combinations that can indicate marriage but the ordering or flow of the cards is usually the important factor, when reading in a simple line from left to right.

Three of Cups tarot card

Card 3 - Three of Cups

When you draw the Three of Cups, you will see three women lifting their cups up in the air in a celebration of some sort. Good times are in the air, for the three ladies have wreaths made of flowers in their hair. Wreaths are often associated with success and victory, so their happiness is well deserved. The ladies are also seen standing on top of a field of flowers and fruit, further adding to the joyful feelings in this card. There are feelings of beauty, growth, compassion and happiness that the women share between each other. An interesting note though, in the Rider-Waite the woman in the middle is turned away from the reader and her face hidden from view. However, the two other maidens are seen smiling.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
The Sun (happiness) Wheel of Fortune (good fortune)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Five of Cups (sadness, let down) Five of Wands (everyone at odds) Four of Cups (apathy) Nine of Swords (worry)

Three of Cups combinations
Mainly, look for the Three of Cups following other cards to see the reason for what is being celebrated, such as: job, money, house, award, etc. Particularly found surrounded and with other cards representing weddings – in the run-up to my daughter’s wedding all of those cards regularly appeared in her readings together, so they tend to leave little doubt when marriage is on the cards!
