Handfasting Wedding Ceremony

Handfasting wedding ceremony is traditionally a Celtic, Indian or Irish ritual, though its significance has founds its way into many mainstream weddings, regardless of culture and background of the couple. If you choose to have this ceremony included in your wedding, as your wedding ceremony officiant I can lead you through this most beautiful expression of your love bond with each other. The two of you would decide the type, texture, color of ribbon or rope you would prefer for the ceremony. Shop around and you will find tons of options available. Keep it to about 3-4 feet in length and not too heavy.

During the ceremony, the groom would place his right palm facing upwards and the bride would place her right palm on it. The bride then places her left palm facing upwards over the right hands and the groom places his left palm facing the brides hand. Think about it as a double handshake one over another. As your wedding officiant, I will wrap the ribbon or rope over and around your clasped hands to symbolize the hand-fasting. Then I would describe the sublime significance of the handfasting wedding ceremony and how your promise and commitment is now bonded with each other for ever. As you hold your hands, and continue to look into each other's eyes listening to my words, you would feel some very deep emotions of love, protectiveness and commitment to be there for each other, with each other for ever.

Once the magical moments have passed, I will tie the ends of the handfasting ribbon or rope to make the knot permanent. Then the two of you would exchange your rings, which makes your emotional bond permanent. You can then slip your hands away from the ribbon, which becomes a wedding keepsake. The ring is already on your finger and you are forever bonded together. These are blissful moments that you will cherish forever.

The handfasting wedding ceremony may be performed in both public marriages or confidential marriages. If you decide to have this ceremony, let us discuss when we meet and plan everything out. Let's discuss the type of ribbon or rope you will be using, their colors and texture, so that I can prepare an appropriate statement to explain their significance in the ceremony better. I absolutely want you to ensure that this ceremony has a lasting impact on your lives forever.
