Personalized Vows and Practices
Besides the legal requirements that must be included in the ceremony, I am here to assist and support couples in developing their own personal touches - including vows - into their special day.
Some personal practices include the addition of unity candles, hand- fasting ribbons, family or friends reading from poems or prayers, sand circles, a lock of hair in a silver box, the loving cup/quaich, smudging, pledge of our heart’s desire, commitment box, warming of the rings and labyrinth walks to name just a few.
