What is a Hand Fasting Ceremony?

Hand fasting is an ancient Celtic marriage ritual and it involves tying colourful ribbon or cord around your joined hands, a symbolic way of representing your union as a married couple. Each ribbon, and the colour, signifies a different meaning to you as a couple, and this can be expressed during the ceremony. As history goes, this type of ceremony may well be where we get the expression “tying the knot” from!? You can display your hand ties at home after the ceremony too – just to remind you of your big day every day!

Symbolic ceremonies

Hand Fasting, Sand Ceremony, lighting unity candles, a Dove Release – can add special meaning to the day’s events. By choosing a celebrant, you can also include any other symbolic, religious, or cultural tradition which is meaningful to you too.
