Wedding Ceremony Elements | Jumping the Broom Ceremony.

 

Jumping the broom is a time-honoured wedding tradition in which the bride and groom jump over a broom during the ceremony. The act symbolises a new beginning and a sweeping away of the past and can also signify the joining of two families or offer a respectful nod to family ancestors. For all these reasons, umping the broom is an increasingly popular part of many modern wedding ceremonies.
