To make your day extra special
I offer a wonderful range of ceremony enhancements too which are a great way to involve friends and family in the occasion and to add personalisation. These ceremonies symbolise the union of two families becoming one. These can be adapted to suit your needs and work in a variety of ceremonies.
Ring Warming Ceremony
This is a really great enhancement filled with love and one of my favourites. This enhancement gets all the guests involved. For this ceremony, the rings are passed around the guests (in a box is always the safest call!). Each guest bestows their well wishes for the couple so by the time we get to the exchanging of the rings they are full of love and positivity and warmed from the hearts of your guests.
UNITY CANDLE CEREMONY
This is another lovely enhancement that gets your family involved in the day. There are three candles, one to represent each family and one to represent the couple. A member of each family comes up to light the candle that represents them. The couple then light their candle from the flames of the family candles, symbolising the uniting of these families.
This is a unity ceremony and the phrase ‘tying the knot’ comes from this ritual. Couples stand facing each other and their hands are bound together, symbolising the joining together of two separate lives into one. Coloured ribbons are often used in this ritual and you can pick your colours based on what they symbolise e.g pink ribbon for love, unity and honour. I can bind your hands and recite the ceremonial words, or you can get your friends and family involved which is so special to be able to do.
Sand Blending Ceremony
During this unity ceremony, the couple pours sand from individual vessels into one combined vessel. This is a visual symbolisation of the union of these two lives. The sand can be of any colour which makes for quirky mementoes of your day which can be displayed at home. This is also a great ceremony to involve kids in and a lovely way to show the joining of two families.
Wine Box Ceremony
During this ceremony the couple create a tasty time capsule! A bottle of wine (or whiskey, gin, champagne - whatever you fancy!) is sealed in a box. Some couples also decide to include a love letter each too. This is then opened at a later date perhaps your first anniversary, as a special way to remember your wedding ceremony and to serve as a reminder of your love as you read your love letters.
