Re: Handfasting

  • I too am thinking of having a handfasting as part of our ceremony, I am irish/scottish and he is scottish/welch. This traditionally was something that was done as a "trial run" so to speak for couples who wished to be wed. They would tie their hands together for a year and a day and at the end of that time, if they still wanted to be together, then they allowed the marriage. Try this website: I just did an internet search for handfasting ceremonies.

  • In my VERY old (3 years, or more! ) bio, under pictures, you'll see a picture of the parchment (you can make it bigger so you can read it) that our ceremony is written on.  We keep it in a box with our cord and the candles we used during the ceremony.
