Special Ceremony Elements

Anything is possible but here are a few suggestions


1. Signing & Witness Ceremony

A brief ceremony involving the couple and 2-4 witnesses, each in turn sign a keepsake parchment which is then presented to the newlyweds


2. Wedding singer

Beautiful classical trained singer with a rich and easy soprano voice, whose emotive and well considered performance brings unforgettable warmth to every occasion. Classical or contemporary, will work with you to provide a bespoke range of songs throughout your ceremony, reception and beyond if required


3. Unity Sand Ceremony Option

The Unity Sand Ceremony is ideal for any wedding. This ceremony option symbolizes the joining of the couple. Family Celebrants often suggest this ritual when there are young children involved and the couple is looking for a ritual to involve the children


4. Wine Box / Love Letter 

The couple will write love letters to each other before the wedding which they will seal in an envelope. They will choose their favorite bottle of wine or drink of choice and place these and any other memorabilia in the wine box. If clients choose this ceremony option during the wedding ceremony, they will seal the box and vow not to open the box until an anniversary of their choice. The only other time that the box can be unsealed is when they are having thoughts of separating at which time they will drink the wine and read the letters which will hopefully remind them why they fell in love and chose to be together in the first place


5. Breaking of the Glass Ceremony 

The Breaking of the Glass Ceremony is traditionally used at Jewish weddings; this ceremony option signifies the end of the ceremony and the time of celebration. As a health & safety concern, the glass (often two champagne flutes) is placed in a cloth bag prior to breaking it


6. Wine Ceremony 

In the Wine ceremony the couple can either choose to pour one white glass and one red glass to create a blush that they will both drink from or there can be a pouring of one glass that they both will drink from


7. Rose Ceremony 

In the Rose ceremony the couple can choose to present roses to the mothers / grandmothers as a way of showing appreciation for their support. The roses can also be presented as the first gifts that the couple will give to each other


8. Dove Release Ceremony 

In the Dove Release Ceremony, doves choose one partner for life and make this commitment until death. It is said that if doves are seen on your wedding day, a happy home is assured. It is the folklore belief that releasing doves is a ceremony option that signifies new beginnings


9. Hand Wrapping Ceremony / Hand Fasting 

The original meaning of “tying the knot”. A Celtic tradition where the hands are tied with ribbons / cloth in the shape of the infinity symbol to symbolize the bringing together of the two hearts in a marriage of strength and unity forever


10. Unity Candle 

This ritual has long been used in Catholic weddings, but as a traditional ceremony option it also holds a universal meaning. It symbolizes the joining of the couple in marriage as well as the joining of their two original families. The couple’s mothers can light their individual candles for them as a symbol to show that they are moving on from their family to create a new family together


11. Memory Jar 

All guests are invited to complete a message on the day of the ceremony, then place it in the glass memory jar. At the end of the special day the jar will be sealed and can be opened on the 1st wedding anniversary to relive memories and messages of the special day
