Celebrated Ceremonies are bespoke, meaningful occasions that honour loved ones’ devotions to one another
In creating a ceremony especially for you, numerous customs are possible- including those that predate Christianity. For instance, the ancient tradition of handfasting is a popular facet of many marriages today. If you choose this, Jonathan will select cords that compliment your colour scheme; they are then yours as a keep-sake of your day.
Other customs that commemorate a couple’s union are Unity Candles, Scottish “Quaich” (Loving cup), Sand Ceremonies, Ring Warming, Gemstones, Medicine wheel,
Pagan blessings, Jumping the broom, planting flowers or trees… etc.
Naturally, you may choose to include your own choice of promises to each other; Jonathan can prompt you with some ideas- unless you have written your own vows already!
A Vow renewal ceremony is for any couple who wish to rededicate their marriage or civil partnership before family and friends. It may be a golden opportunity to commemorate a 50th anniversary or other milestone in their union. Such an occasion could possibly include guests from your original wedding or feature readings by children who have since added to your family.
Although Celebrated Ceremonies is not affiliated to any particular religion, Jonathan is licensed to preside over services of Holy Communion. As an accredited lay preacher, he can devise any style of Christian based ceremony, should you desire.
