Handfasting is an old custom dating back in time to the ancient celts. It was originally a ceremony for a trial marriage which would last for a year and a day.
The ceremony includes gently wrapping cords around the bride and groom’s clasped hands and tying a knot, symbolically binding the couple together.
The romantic cord tying could be included into any marriage ceremony and we are delighted to have provided four bespoke ‘page boy’ costumes for a pagan wedding which will be held on Handfasting day on the 6th July.
