Handfastings

You will be provided with a ceremony dreams are made of.



In some ways, a handfasting is much like a typical marriage. The origins of handfasting lie in ancient celtic traditions, though the modern ceremony has similarities to that of the better – known christian marriage ceremonies. The ritual of handfasting can indicate either betrothal or itself be the marriage ceremony, and it revolves around a simple ceremonial act where the couple clasp their hands, which are then draped and tied with a ribbon.

.

One of the unique features of a handfasting is that the ceremony is conducted inside a circle. The circle is a significant symbol in many cultures and faiths and it forms a central part of the handfasting ritual. In this case a circle is a symbol of eternity. It shows that love, life, and happiness have neither beginning nor end, but are eternal. 

A unique handfasting ceremony will be a beautiful and memorable event that will set you and your partner on the path to your future together.
