Ceremony Elements Menu

The ceremony elements menu is a guide to special elements that can be included in your ceremony.

 

 

Wine Ceremony

In the Wine Ceremony, the couple can either choose to pour one white glass and one red glass to create a blush that they will both drink from. Alternatively, there can be a pouring of one glass that they both will drink from. This symbolises drinking from the cup of life and sharing all of its experiences together, both bitter and sweet.

 

Unity Sand Ceremony

The Unity Sand Ceremony is ideal for weddings, unions and naming ceremonies. This ceremony option symbolises the joining of the couple or family. It is also a great method for involving children of the couple getting married or from previous relationships.

 

Unity Candle Ceremony

The Unity Candle ceremony is practised across many beliefs. It is a symbol of two people coming together, joined by their families.

 

Hand Wrapping Ceremony / Hand Fasting

The original meaning of ‘tying the knot’. A Celtic tradition where the hands are tied with ribbons / cloth to symbolise the bringing together of the two hearts in a marriage of strength and unity forever. We can provide the ribbons and cord, or you might like to use your own personal ribbons, cloth or the like that have a special meaning for you.

 

Wine Box / Love Letter

The Wine Box / Love Letter option is a way to record why you are marrying your partner. The couple can write love letters to each other before the wedding which they will seal in an envelope. They can place other memorabilia in the wine box.

 

First Kiss, Last Kiss

This is a ceremony option involving the mother of both the couple. They are called upon to join the couple near the end of the ceremony. The mothers' gave their children their first kiss when they came into the world and they will now give their last kiss as single individuals, before sending them on their new journey as life partner.

 

Rose Ceremony

The couple present roses to the mothers / grandmothers as a way of showing appreciation for their support. Roses can also be presented as the first gifts the couple give to each other.

 

 

Broom Jumping Ceremony

The Broom Jumping ritual is based upon a tradition which symbolises the clearing away of negativity with a sweep of the broom and creating a threshold for the couple to cross over into their new life together. The broom can be decorated for the occasion in many ways.

 

Breaking the Glass Ceremony

The Breaking of the Glass ritual is traditionally used at Jewish weddings; this ritual signifies the end of the ceremony and the time of celebration. As a health and safety concern, the glass (often two champagne flutes) are placed in a cloth bag prior to breaking.

 

 

Planting a Tree

The Tree Planting Ceremony is a ceremonial tree planting, where a sapling is in a pretty pot and the couple add soil, perhaps from their family gardens. If used for a naming ceremony, children or other family members can also water the tree once planted to show how they will support the child’s growth. Any tree can be used, and its history and meaning will be incorporated into the ceremony.

 

 

 

The above elements are only a sample that can be included in your ceremony. If you have any ideas yourself, we will include it into your ceremony. Celebrate your moments, the way you like!
