Personalising your wedding ceremony by adding elements

image 5

1. Unity Candle Ceremony

This is a lovely way to get your parents or family members involved in the ceremony and allows for you to customise the ceremony to express your sentiment.

It may be that you would like to recognise someone who has had an impact on your life, and they could play that role. Whether; parents, aunts, uncles, friends, or the couple themselves light the individual candles, the real magic happens as the lights merge together.

During the Unity Candle Ceremony, it should be recognised that the lighting of the lights does signify the individuals. However, it may also signify a passing of the light from one generation to another.

2. Sand Ceremony

The Wedding Sand Ceremony expresses the coming together of two people or two families into one new family.

Typically, each person has a different coloured sand and takes turns pouring it into one clear vessel, forming a layered effect.

Sometimes only the couple participates, and sometimes the couple's children or parents join in with their own coloured sand, adding to the layers of colours, and expressing the harmony of the entire family.

3. Rose Ceremony

A simple unity ceremony where the bride and groom exchange roses, then the bride and groom present their mothers with roses.

4. Wine Ceremony

The bride and groom each take a glass of red and a glass of white wine and pour it into a single glass, which they both drink from.

5. Jumping the Broom

The broom can be decorated with messages attached by guests if desired. The bride and groom jump over it together. The broom can be kept as a keepsake of the day.

6. Hand-fasting Ceremonies

Originally the Pagan Celtic ceremony is believed to be the source of the phrase "tying the knot".
Hand-fasting ceremonies are personalised to you. Families, parents, children and friends can be a part of the ceremony presenting different coloured ribbons representing elements of life to the couple.

7. Religious Accommodations

Please enquire about how we can acknowledge and pay tribute to your faith.
