HANDFASTING

Did you know the phrase “tying the knot” comes from handfasting? This was an ancient way for a couple to show their commitment to one another and can be traced back to pagan Norse and Celtic traditions.

These beautiful and traditional celebrations of love are both romantic and spiritual. I can offer a handfasting as a stand-alone ceremony or incorporate it into your wedding, to signify your engagement or as a renewal of your vows.

Usually they are held in natural surroundings and we have plenty of these in Britain; Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Avebury, Orkney, Callanish, King Arthur’s Cave, much of Dartmoor; but you might have a special place where you would like to hold your unique handfasting.

To make sure your handfasting is exactly as you want it we will meet at least once in order that the ceremony written will reflect your beliefs, philosophy and lives so that your handfasting will be like no other.

I look forward to help you explore more about whether this is the right celebration of your love and union. Please feel free to contact me.
