Your wedding...Your way!
The Rose Ceremony is simple yet moving. The bride and groom exchange two roses, symbolizing the giving and receiving of their love for each other throughout their entire married life. The Rose Ceremony also conveys how to use the rose and its symbolism in difficult times in order to forgive each other.
At its simplest, a sand ceremony involves a symbolic blending of two different-colored sands into a single vessel. The meaning is clear: The blending of two different beings, the bride and the groom, into a single, inseparable unit that is their marriage -- the joining of their lives
In this ceremony, everyone in the congregation brings a flower. Each person places a flower in a shared vase. In times of trouble always remember that a flower always says "I love you."
Bride and Groom hold hands, palms up, where you may see the gift that they are to you. These are the hands that will hold you tight, they hands will comfort you. They will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.
There are many variations of the traditional handfasting. After the bride and groom both declare their intent to enter into this union, the hands of the couple are clasped and fastened together with a cord or cords just before, just after, or during their vows are made to one another. The wrapping of the cord forms an infinity symbol. The handfasting knot that is tied is a symbolic representation of oneness between the couple. In a show of unity, they become bound to each other
Love knows no caste, religion or bars. The language of love unites people together in marriage, but communities and traditions often times make such marriages a difficult experience. There are many aspects to consider when you organize an interfaith wedding. We will work with you to create the perfect ceremony for you.
Unity Candle Ceremony can easily be added to any marriage ceremony. It is placed near the end of the ceremony, following the Exchange of Rings. However, the mother's usually lights the two outer candles as they are escorted forward at the beginning of the ceremony. The two outer candles represent your individual lives before today. They represent all that you are from your vast experiences, and they represent your individual families. As you each take a single candle and light the center candle, you will extinguish your individual candles.
Much like the Sand Ceremony, the blending of two individual glasses of wine into one symbolizes the joining of eachothers heart, soul and families.
Reaffirmation of Vows
If you and your spouse have made it to a significant anniversary, or you just want to have a "do-over" wedding, consider a vow renewal.
Same Sex Marriage
You have presented yourselves here in the Presence of your families and your friends to be joined in loving partnership...True commitment is realized when based upon the deep love of two people who find fulfillment and joy in each other. "Partners in love and in life".
The wedding should represent your wants, if you would like to honour children, family, or friends attending the ceremony we will include this in the ceremony. A special gift celebration for children and for parents can be included in your ceremony.
The ceremony is the public recognition of a child. It is an outward ritual intended to welcome a child into the family.
