My broom has never looked so lovely!
😍 I love jumping the broom ceremonies. It comes from celtic traditions, when to jump the broom literally meant getting married
🌈 Together, you hold hands and jump into your new futures, brushing away any negativity from the past.

You can supply your own, or I will decorate this lovely broom to match your ceremony.
More info on my website.
