Remembering your loved ones
Handfasting is an ancient Celtic tradition of taking each others’ hand in marriage or tying the knot as is more commonly known.
Getting married is a big thing with many of the wedding venues fully booked up to 2 years in advance. Perhaps this, together with the escalating costs involved, is the reason why the practice of Handfasting is becoming more and more popular with couples everywhere and can be performed at sacred sites (Stonehenge or Rollright Stones etc) or indoors or places of natural interest.
Handfasting is the practice of couples committing to each other by having their hands tied together with braid, or something similar, and exchanging rings and vows in a traditional non-religious loving ceremony. Knots are traditionally tied in the braid as each vow is made and can be incorporated into the ceremony on the day. Then the couple are given the opportunity to “Jump the Broom” symbolic of jumping into their new life together. The ceremony can also include small rituals for the bride and groom to be done by both and can be performed with ribbons and small charms or with a hoop and a wand.
When the Handfasting is over and the braids are removed, the couple are left with a keepsake which can be used for future vow renewals or just a reminder of a very special day and mounted in an elegant frame.
