Handfasting Marriage Ceremonies
Beautiful and Memorable
Handfastings are an ancient and beautiful marriage ceremony that may incorporate Wiccan or Pagan beliefs. The term is derived from Old Norse dialect, hand-festa, "to strike a bargain by joining hands". Handfastings are beautiful and deeply symbolic marriage ceremonies that are usually held outdoors in the presence of the Earth and Nature Elementals, in a natural setting such as a beach or forest.

This is a very positive ritual, affirming that the mother to be will have a natural and beautiful birth experience.

She will be bestowed with gifts that are made at the Blessing by her closest female friends and family.
