If desired, there are many symbolic features and customs that can be included in a ceremony,
including Candle Lighting, Hand Fasting and Sand Pouring ceremonies.

We can work together to create a meaningful ritual to suit your needs.

Candle Lighting Ceremonies

Lighting candles represents the joining together of the two families.This can also be particularly meaningful where step children are being involved in the ceremony.

Hand Fasting Ceremonies

Believed to be from an old celtic tradition based on ‘tying the knot’. Different coloured ribbons (or chords) have different meanings, for example: White for purity, Green for health, Red for passion

Sand Ceremonies

A single container of sand symbolises the individuality of the couple. As they each pour the sand into a larger container, it represents their union as partners.
