Create your ideal Handfasting Wedding...
A pagan handfasting dates back to our ancient Celt ancestors, the ceremony bound the couple together for one year and one day, this enable the couple to have a trial marriage to see if they wanted to make the commitment more permanent.
The tradition of tying the knot is a symbolic cord tied around the couples hands as a sign of infinity. You can have a full pagan ceremony or just incorporate some elements of a handfasting wedding.
Some examples are:
- Jumping the broom
- Blessings, prayers, pledges & sonnets
- Herbs & Flowers
- Food & Drink, traditionally mead (honey wine)
- Ring blessing
Do you have to be Wiccan or Pagan to have a handfasting?
You do not need to be either and you can incorporate the tradition into any ceremony.
The Giving of Rings Verse
I take you my heart
At the rising of the moon
And the setting of the stars.

In all our lives,
May we be reborn
That we may meet and know
And love again,
