PAGAN WEDDINGS

The Handfasting ceremony can be traced back over nine thousand years. You can choose to have a full Pagan ceremony which involves calling the quarters, creating a sacred circle and including the ancestors and those in spirit.

Handfasting is heart led and heart felt. It is the origins of the term "tying the knot" and forms the basis of many Pagan ceremonies.

Creating a sacred circle .

Invoking the power of the South, fire

The power of water, from the West

Inviting us to honour the North, the earth beneath our feet.

The air, from the East, blowing its blessings upon your union.

Creating a sacred circle from pumpkins - the quarters are marked, and I am lighting the flame which will burn throughout the ceremony.

My broom has never looked so lovely!
ūüėć I love jumping the broom ceremonies. It comes from celtic traditions, when to jump the broom literally meant getting married
ūüĆą 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.
