Symbolic Ritual Sand Ceremony

We all understand the significance of wedding ceremonies, but did you know, you can add a point of difference by having symbolic ritual such as the sand ceremony?

As a celebrant, I love giving couples the opportunity to decide if an extra symbolic ceremony will suit their style.

Symbolic ceremonies are generally done after the exchange of rings and the beauty is, that anything goes if you’re having a celebrant to officiate your marriage.

Sand ceremonies are very popular. They don’t just have to be for beach weddings either. The symbolic nature interests guests during the ceremony and you will get positive comments about having that extra something.

Basically, on our first or second meeting you each choose a coloured sand (I have an abundance of colours available which I bring out to show you!). During the ceremony, I invite you to perform the unity sand ceremony and as I say a few words to explain the meaning, you pour your sand together into the one heart shaped jar. It represents the blending of your lives into one as a married couple. Watch my compilation here.

Each coloured sand is beautifully presented in heart shaped vases and the great thing is, you get to keep your heart filled jar as a keepsake!
