Are you interested in incorporating a handfasting ceremony into your wedding ceremony? As a professional wedding officiant, I have some tips to help make it a success. Check them out in the video below!

But first things first: What is a handfasting ceremony?

Timing of the Handfasting Ceremony

It’s important to consider the timing of a handfasting ceremony. I recommend incorporating it right in the middle of your wedding ceremony. After the welcome, address, and declaration of intent portion, the handfasting ceremony can take place. This way, it doesn’t feel like an afterthought and gets the attention it deserves.

What Goes Into a Handfasting Ceremony?

The hand fasting ceremony is a significant part of your wedding ceremony and can take up to 10 minutes. It’s essential to plan it properly and include it in your timeline. After the ceremony, you can follow it up with traditional elements like the ring exchange, signing, and kiss.
