Wedding Ceremony Enhancements
Handfasting is an ancient Celtic ritual where the hands of the couple are tied with ribbons to symbolise the bringing together of the two hearts in a marriage of strength and unity. This is the original meaning of “tying the knot”.
This ritual has a universal meaning. It symbolises the joining of the couple in marriage as well as the joining of their two original families. One option here is for the couple’s mothers or the bride and groom to light their individual candles as a symbol that they are moving on from their family of origin to create their new family together.
(OR) Unity Sand
This ritual symbolises the joining of two people/families. Sand is poured into a glass receptacle of the couples choosing and is a symbolic representation for all to see and for the couple to keep.
This is a nice ritual to use where young children can be involved.
A wedding rehearsal is highly recommended approximately 2-4 weeks prior to the ceremony. It’s ideal if the rehearsal takes place at the wedding venue but can also be facilitated elsewhere. The rehearsal date and time should be agreed as soon as possible, and the people involved in the ceremony should attend. If some of the wedding party cannot attend, videos can be taken on your phone, or a stand-in can be used. By conducting a rehearsal, it can help the people involved in the ceremony to feel more relaxed on the wedding day.
