Looking for a Perfect 'Unity Ceremony'?

Updated: May 1, 2020

Looking for a Perfect 'Unity Ceremony'?

What is a 'Symbol'?

Symbols are either an action or image which represents something else. Image symbols are everywhere including road signs, merchandising/branding symbols or religious symbols.

What are 'Unity Symbols'?

Some couples, when they have a Wedding, Civil Partnership, Elopement, Blessing or Vow Renewal, wish to symbolically show/represent them 'uniting', or in the words of the Spice Girls, 'when two become one'. (Apologies to those who do not appreciate the lyrical masterpiece of the Spice Girls!) Something to show their uniting as a couple, from two individual and independent people into one unified couple.

There are lots of different unity rituals and symbols that can be 'added' to a bespoke ceremony written and officiated by a celebrant. The choice is yours!

Here are some examples of 'Unity Ceremonies' that can be woven into your bespoke ceremony:

  • Handfasting Ceremony

  • Sand Ceremony

  • Water Ceremony

  • Wine Ceremony

  • Love Letters Ceremony

  • Loving Cup or Quaich Ceremony

  • Jumping the Broom Ceremony

  • Tree Planting Ceremony/Pot a Plant Ceremony

  • Cocktail Ceremony

  • Unity Candle Ceremony

  • Love Letters Ceremony

  • Flower Ceremony

  • Painted Canvas Ceremony

  • Wrapping the couple

  • Ring Warming Ceremony

  • Time Capsule Ceremony

  • The Cut Out Heart Race Ceremony

There are so many traditional, modern, Celtic, cultural, religious and spiritual ways to symbolise the union of the couple. Some of them include the joining or union of family and friends too, to secure the 'bond' and support the couple in their newly celebrated relationship. Some ceremonies include children in their 'unity ceremony' to symbolise the uniting of the whole family.

As long as the ceremony provides meaning to you both, you can design your own 'unity ceremony'! How exciting and bespoke this would be! Get thinking, designing and being absolutely creative.

'Your Day, Your Ceremony, Your Way!'
