Tie the knot

I love it when my couples want to literally ‘tie the knot’ in front of their family and friends. A hand-tying ritual can be done in a number of ways. The colours chosen represent values, beliefs and what you wish for in the future. It is a truly magical and dramatic ritual.

The ribbons can be loose and special guests can be part of the ritual, laying the ribbons across the couple’s hands. Or I can plait the ribbons into a chord that is wrapped around your hands. My favourite part is when the hands pull away and the ribbons create a knot in front of everyone’s eyes, too much cheering and wonder!

It doesn’t have to be ‘pagan’ or ‘hippy’ or ‘traditional’. It is a romantic, fun and memorable part of your wedding that leaves you with something you will treasure forever.
