Special Ceremony Elements
Special ceremony elements are in addition to the standard ceremony fee. Any elements can be included for each additional fee, the following are just examples, we can think up more together!

Wedding Ring Warming
from £30

In the wedding ring warming ceremony, the couple’s wedding rings are passed amongst the attending guests in a pouch or other container. Guests are invited to pass on a thought or good wish to the couple as the rings pass through their hands.

Ceremony Certificate
from £45

A brief ceremony involving the couple and two witnesses. Each in turn sign a keepsake parchment, or certificate, which is then presented to the newlyweds.

Unity Sand Ceremony
from £60

The unity sand ceremony is ideal for any wedding. This ceremony option symbolises the joining of the couple. This ritual is often used when there are young children involved and the couple is looking for a ritual to involve the children.

There is also a variant where you use different sizes of stones to represent the challenges the couple will take on together through their married life. Large stones for the large events in life are placed into a jar until it is full. Smaller pebbles, to symbolise those moments which may be less important but are still significant, will fill in the gaps around the larger stones, until the jar again seems full. Then sand is poured in to symbolise all those small steps taken together each day. This symbolises that while looking back on life together and seeing those big events, it is all the little kind gestures and support given along the way that shore up and support a couple through the bigger challenges.

Hour Glass Ceremony
from £70

A take on the sand ceremony but the hourglass can be turned on every anniversary. The idea is that when you put each colour of sand in the glass, they’re inseparable but not entwined. As time continues on, the colours become so entwined they are impossible to part. 

Water Ceremony
from £55

A lot like the sand ceremony, this ceremony blends two colours into one. I advise that a couple experiments with colours before the wedding so that the mixing gives a colour you really like. Unlike with the sand ceremony, where you can get clear layers and blended layers, water really mixes together. Alternatively, two coloured waters put into a glass vessel with bleach sees the colour dissolve, symbolising purity.

Encircling the Couple
from £30

Perfect for smaller weddings, this interpretation of a Quaker tradition involves inviting guests to form a circle together with the bride and groom. They may also be asked to share their thoughts on the couple. (they can be given a heads up so they can prepare their thoughts ahead of time!)

Tree Planting
from £40

A memorable ceremony which keeps on growing. A tree of choice is planted by the couple themselves, or the couple with the help of parents/friends, commemorating the occasion. Bonsai or other specialist trees maybe used, or instead of a tree planting, a couple can choose to pot a plant indoors. Families can be involved by symbolically adding earth or water during the ceremony.

Wine Ceremony
from £45

In the wine ceremony the couple pour one glass of white wine and one glass of red wine to create a blush that they will both drink from. Other beverages can be used in replacement of wine.

Wine Box & Love Letters
from £65

The couple write love letters to each other before the wedding which they will seal in an envelope. They will choose their favourite bottle of wine or drink of choice and place these and any other memorabilia in the wine box. If the couple choose this ceremony option during the wedding ceremony, they will seal the box, or get others involved nailing it closed! They vow not to open the box until an anniversary of their choice.

Handfasting
from £75

The origin of ‘tying the knot’. A Pagan/Celtic tradition where ribbons, or cloth, are draped over the couple’s clasped hands and then tied into a knot symbolising the bringing together of the two hearts, in a union of strength and unity forever. Handfasting is a symbolic and visual element.

Unity Candle
from £60

Like handfasting, the unity candle element has been adopted into faith marriage ceremonies from Pagan weddings rituals as both hold a universal meaning. It symbolises the joining of the couple in marriage, as well as the joining of their two original families. The couple’s parents 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.

Wishing Jar
from £65

Each guest writes a thought, memory or message eg their own advice on marriage to the couple and writes this on provided, tags, wooden hearts or even pebbles and places them in the wishing jar to be enjoyed at the couple’s leisure or at a later anniversary much as a time capsule.

Tasting of the Four Elements
from £30

An African American wedding tradition. This ritual dramatizes the “Traditional” promise to love “for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health.” Lemon, vinegar, cayenne pepper, and honey — represent the sour, the bitter, the hot, and the sweet times of marriage.

Quaich
from £30

Drinking from a Quaich is an ancient Scottish ceremony, symbolic of trust, love and peace between two people. This act of sharing is a symbol of the life shared together, and the cup represents the cup of life. This is traditionally done with whisky but any drink alcoholic or not can be used.
