And Other Rites of Passage

Handfasting

As a separate ceremony or as a part of a wedding ceremony, handfasting refers to the custom of tying the couple’s hands together with cords.  It remained the legal rite of marriage in Scotland until 1939.  We can suggest ways to make this beautiful ritual a part of your commitment ceremony.
 
Renewal of Vows
                                                    
Celebrate a significant anniversary or re-commit to your relationship by renewing your wedding vows.  We can offer many inspiring and romantic ways to pledge your love all over again.

Memorial, Funeral or Celebration of Life

The loss of a family member or friend can be a very emotionally difficult event.  We can help you to acknowledge the loss, remember good times and celebrate the life of your departed loved one as family and friends come together to support each other in their grief.  This can be done shortly after the death or years later.

 Other Ceremonies of Significance

Other important rites of passage, such as a coming of age, a house blessing, a divorce, a new mother ceremony, a croning celebration or a pet memorial, may be marked with a ceremony or rituals.  Let us suggest ways to acknowledge these important events. 

We are available and willing to work with you to create ceremonies that recognize any significant life events that you wish to mark.
