Are you seeking a unique and meaningful way to celebrate your love? Handfasting ceremonies offer a beautiful and ancient tradition to couples, creating a symbolic bond that goes beyond legal commitments.
What is Handfasting?
Handfasting is a sacred and symbolic ritual where a couple's hands are bound together with a ribbon or cord, symbolizing their union and commitment to one another. This tradition dates back to ancient Celtic cultures and is a powerful representation of unity, strength, and eternal love.
At the current time, we do not supply ribbons or cords, we suggest you take the time and search for one that you feel connected with, that carries the significance you are seeking to bind together between you two.
History and Origins of Handfasting:
Handfasting has its roots in Celtic and Norse cultures, where it was often used as a spiritual ceremony to mark the union of couples. As time passed, the tradition evolved, and it continues to be embraced by couples worldwide seeking a profound and personal way to express their love.
Why Choose Handfasting?
Symbolic Connection: Handfasting provides a unique and symbolic connection between partners, emphasizing the spiritual and emotional aspects of their union.
Personalization: Each ceremony is tailored to reflect the couple's values, beliefs, and unique love story, making it a truly personalized experience.
Non-Legal Binding: Ideal for couples who wish to express their commitment without the legal obligations, handfasting allows for a spiritual connection without the constraints of legalities.
If you wish to make your commitment a legal binding as well, you will have to have to have a separate officiant with legal papers present to your wedding.
What You Need to Know:
Customization: We work closely with you to customize the ceremony to reflect your preferences, incorporating meaningful elements that represent your journey together.
Ritual Execution: The ceremony typically involves the wrapping of hands with a specially chosen cord or ribbon, reciting vows, and the exchange of rings or symbolic tokens. (if you wish to have a legal binding as well, this may be tailored differently due to your requests).
Location: Handfasting ceremonies can be conducted in various settings, from outdoor natural landscapes to intimate indoor spaces, adding a touch of magic to your chosen venue. Travel fees may be applied. Please contact for more details.
