CEREMONIES

Wedding Ceremonies

A wedding is a marriage ceremony by which two people vow to spend their lives together. It is a ceremony that celebrates two unique individuals, with all their quirks and qualities.

Once in a while, right in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale. Two hearts become one.

Handfasting Ceremony

Handfasting Ceremony is a symbolic binding of the hands that inspired the terms "Bond of Matrimony" and "Tying the Knot". It is a ceremony which has a long history in Irish, Scottish and Welsh weddings and involves the tying of the groom's and bride's hands together as a sign of their commitment to one another. The ceremony allows the couple to share with one another their hopes and dreams and it recognizes that, at times during their married life, even saying "I like you" will be a challenge.

The Ceremony

Handfasting Ceremonies are customizable, therefore they are planned to suit the couple's needs. The ceremony includes wrapping cords around the couple's clasped hands and tying a knot. The vows are exchanged either before, after or during the cord tying. The vows may be combined with the giving of rings. The ceremony may also include the signing of the documents, a blessing and the recessional.

"What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life."
- George Elliot
