Beth & Padriac

"We wanted to say a massive thank you for everything. You made our day so incredibly amazing and I know that the effortless feel was thanks to all the effort and detail you put in. People were blown away by how heartfelt and special the ceremony was.You were incredible to work with and we will recommend you to any of our newly engaged Friends :)"

Unity ceremonies symbolise the joining of two people together as one, they offer magical moments within a wedding ceremony where two separate journeys come together onto a single pathway. They allow couples the opportunity to be individual and creative within their ceremony and provide a beautiful keepsake of the day.

I love to add beautiful unity ceremonies into wedding ceremonies and how many I add is completely up to the couple I’m working with, there are lots of lovely ones to choose from!

If you do plan to include one or more unity ceremonies, then choose ceremonies that are a reflection of you both, your personalities and the special location where you have chosen to say ‘I do’. There are wonderful words to accompany your chosen ceremonies and your children, family and friends, will really love getting involved.

Unity Ceremonies can also be beautifully crafted into your Vow Renewal or Naming Ceremony.

A few of my personal favourites...

The Rose Ceremony: The rose is considered a symbol of love, so it is the perfect first gift to give to each during the ceremony and then again on future anniversaries...very romantic.


Hand Ceremony: The simple act of holding hands, looking into each others eyes and declaring your love and friendship, is a very powerful show of the unity of your partnership...simple, elegant and very meaningful.

 

The Rock Ceremony: Each family member or friend takes a small pebble, crystal or shell and warms it with their loving thoughts  and good wishes. They are then placed in a jar to be taken home to keep forever...a perfect reminder of the day.

 

Unity Bowl: This ceremony can include all generations of the family and is a lovely keepsake of the day. A bowl is filled with marbles from everyone, each having a different coloured marble, to show that they have added different colours to your life. The marbles are then mixed together...wonderful for including children.

 

Sand Ceremony: This ceremony can involve just you as a couple or other family members as well. Coloured sand or sand from the beach can be added together into one main container, symbolising the mixing of the families, now unable to be parted...great for all of the family to join in.

 

The Sharing of Wine: Sharing a glass of wine together from two separate vessels poured into one, a coming together as one for your future together. Pouring wine into one glass and then both sharing the glass is another variation on the ceremony...a great ceremony if you both share a passion for wine!


Love Letter Box: You write a private letter to each before the ceremony, telling each other why you have chosen to marry each other and the love that you feel for each other on your wedding day. During the ceremony you put the letters into a box together, the idea is that you can open the letters on any of your future anniversaries to read again. It can also be a beautiful idea, when times are not as good as you would like them to be, to open them and read them to reaffirm your feelings of love for each other...perfect if you want a reminder of how you felt on the day.

 

Unity Candle: Two candles are lit to represent the couple, then a central candle is lit to represent the couple as one...perfect for indoor ceremonies.

Please kindly note that you will need to supply all of the materials needed for your 'Unity Ceremony'.
