Ready to celebrate?

Throughout our lives, there are occasions that are definitely cause for rejoicing and each of these could be marked by a ceremony. So much about our world today is caught up in commercialisation, with the true meaning of a significant event lost under a pile of presents, greetings on social media, and parties which are here today, gone tomorrow.

It’s all too easy for us to fall into the trap of spending a lot of time (and money!) on the material trappings surrounding a birthday or any other sort of celebration, and forgetting about its significance, the reason we’re honouring this day.

Wedding Ceremonies

Exciting times, making a commitment to spend the rest of your life with your partner is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.

Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is an alternative way to celebrate the arrival of a new baby—but can also be performed to mark other naming occasions, for instance, when a child is adopted.

Life Celebrations

Throughout our lives, there are occasions that are definitely cause for rejoicing and each of these could be marked by a ceremony.

Unity Services

Two people getting engaged, becoming as one in a wedding ceremony or renewing their vows are all beautiful moments that no-one will want to forget. There’s the same warm and loving feeling when parents and their children join together as one family in second marriages, or welcome a child into the family through adoption.

A unity ceremony is a way of celebrating all sorts of occasions when people come together, which can be an element of a larger ceremony or a glorious ceremony all of its own. There are many variants of the same theme.

Hand Fasting

Hand Fasting

Handfasting is a beautiful, symbolic marriage ceremony or ritual. It’s widely accepted that it has an ancient Celtic origin, dating back thousands of years.

Wine

Wine

In the wine ceremony you, as a couple, pour one glass of white and one of red into another vessel to create a blush wine that you will both then drink, perhaps from the same glass, to symbolise your union.

Sand

Sand

Everyone who’s taking part pours sand into a clear vessel, forming layers. The sand is a different colour for each person, chosen according to personal taste or because of the meanings behind the colours.

Jumping the Broom

Jumping the Broom

You and your partner will jump—or possibly step—over the broom, to symbolise a dramatic entrance into a new phase of your lives together. It’s sometimes said that the higher the leap, the more powerful the marriage will be, but I’ll leave that up to you to decide!

Canvases

Canvases

At the ceremony, there is a blank canvas, on which your guests can sign their names, add messages, or their own artwork—young children could make handprints.
