————— WEDDING CEREMONIES —————
Whether you are having a small and intimate ceremony, or a grand event, your day will be unique and memorable. Your ceremony may be a simple event with only the legal or the more traditional components, or you may like to choose, to include one of the following rituals to enhance your ceremony.
THE ROSE CEREMONY
In the Rose Ceremony, the Bride and Groom give each other a single red rose bud. This is to symbolise the first gift to each other, as husband and wife, two roses are all that is necessary. The Rose Ceremony is placed at the end of the wedding ceremony after the couple has been pronounced husband and wife.
UNITY CANDLE CEREMONY
The unity candle symbolises the very essence of the wedding ceremony. Two taper candles, representing the couple as individuals, are used to light a single centre candle as a visible symbol of their commitment to each other.
The term “Handfasting” is taken from Old Norse “hand-festa” meaning “to strike a bargain by joining hands”. Handfasting is the tradition of lightly binding together the hands of a couple using a cord, rope, ribbons, a scarf, or strips of fabric, often of a tartan design. It is meant to signify a couples coming together as “One”. Or perhaps to keep the Groom from running away!) Whatever its original intention, it has become a popular new tradition for today’s couples seeking new and spiritual ways to honour their love.
