Hand Fasting Wedding Ceremony

We perform Handfasting Wedding Ceremonies.

Handfasting wedding ceremonies are Celtic wedding rituals.  It involves the tying of hands together to symbolize the coming together and remaing tied together.  One possible wedding vow during the handfasting is this sample:


"As this knot is tied, so are your lives now bound.  Woven into this cord, into its very fibers, are all the hopes of your friends and family, and of yourselves, for your new life together. With the entwining of this knot do I tie all the desires, dreams, love, and happiness wished here in this place to your lives for as long as love shall last.

In the joining of hands and the fashion of a knot, so are your lives now bound, one to another. By this cord you are thus bound to your vow.  May this knot remain tied for as long as love shall last.

May this cord draw your hands together in love, never to be used in anger. May the vows you have spoken never grow bitter in your mouths.

Two entwined in love, bound by commitment and fear, sadness and joy, by hardship and victory, anger and reconcilliation, all of which brings strength to this union. Hold tight to one another through both good times and bad, and watch as your strength grows.  Remember that it is not this physical cord, but what it represents, that keeps you together."
