Handfasting - What is it?

This is one of the mini ceremonies we can include in your service called handfasting.❤️

What is handfasting? ❤️

“The handfasting ritual is one of the oldest wedding customs in the world, and it was how engagements and marriages were symbolised and legalised. Traditionally, a handfasting was valid for one year and one day, after which time the couple could continue with the relationship or part ways.”

It's no longer legally binding, but is a lovely intimate ceremony and you do actually tie the knot! ❤️

I always say to couples, that if you are ever sorry, and don't have the words to express it. Then place your handfasting cord on your pillow at bedtime, to symbolise your apology. ❤️
