Special Ceremony Rituals
Little rituals are part of the ceremonies making them bespoke and special to you.
Most of them symbolise closeness in marriage, becoming one family unit or wishing you good luck for your future life.
I can provide more information during our initial interview and make one or two of these rituals part of your ceremony.
Unity Sand Ceremony Option – from £60
The Unity Sand Ceremony is ideal for any wedding or ceremony. This ceremony option symbolises the joining of the couple. I often suggest this ritual when there are young children involved and the couple is looking for a ritual to involve them.
Wine Box / Love Letter ceremony – from £55
The couple will write love letters to each other before the wedding which they will seal in an envelope. They will choose their favourite bottle of wine or drink of choice and place these and any other memorabilia in the wine box. If couples choose this option during the wedding ceremony, they will seal the box and vow not to open the box until an anniversary of their choice.
Breaking of the Glass Ceremony – from £40
The Breaking of the Glass Ceremony is traditionally used at Jewish weddings; this ceremony option signifies the end of the ceremony and the beginning of the celebrations. The glass (often two champagne flutes) is placed in a cloth bag prior to breaking it.
Wine Ceremony – from £30
In the Wine ceremony the couple can either choose to pour one white glass and one red glass to create a blush that they will both drink from or there can be a pouring of one glass that they both will drink from.
Broom Jumping Ceremony – from £75
The Broom Jumping Ceremony is based upon tradition which symbolises the clearing away of negativity with a sweep of the broom and creating a threshold for the couple to cross over into their new life together.
Rose Ceremony – from £30
In the Rose ceremony the couple can choose to present roses to the mothers or grandmothers as a way of showing appreciation for their support. The roses can also be presented as the first gifts that the couple will give to each other.
Hand Wrapping Ceremony / Handfasting – from £60
The original meaning of “tying the knot”. A Celtic tradition where the hands are tied with ribbons in the shape of the infinity symbol to symbolise the bringing together of the two hearts in a marriage of strength and unity forever.
Unity Candle ceremony – from £60
This ritual has long been used in Catholic weddings, but as a traditional ceremony option it also holds a universal meaning. It symbolises the joining of the couple in marriage as well as the joining of their two original families. The couple’s mothers can light their individual candles for them as a symbol to show that they are moving on from their family to create a new family together.
