Special Ceremony Provisions
A Special Ceremony can be interwoven if you would like this. Below are a number of the most popular Special provisions and Rituals:

Unity Sand Ceremony
Unity Sand Ceremony Option
The Unity Sand Ceremony is ideal for any wedding. This ceremony option symbolises the joining of the couple. Family Celebrants often suggest this ritual when there are young children involved and the couple is looking for a ritual to involve the children. This is also a lovely option for baby/child naming and adoption celebrations.Prices from £60

Wine Box / Love Letter
The couple will 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 clients choose this ceremony option during the wedding ceremony, they will seal the box and vow not to open the box until an anniversary of their choice. The only other time that the box can be unsealed is when they are having thoughts of separating at which time they will drink the wine and read the letters which will hopefully remind them why they fell in love and chose to be together in the first place. Prices from £60

Breaking of the Glass Ceremony
The Breaking of the Glass Ceremony is traditionally used at Jewish weddings; this ceremony option signifies the end of the ceremony and the time of celebration. As a health & safety concern, the glass is placed in a cloth bag prior to breaking it. Not recommended for delicate shoes. Prices from £40
