All of the celebrant ceremonies and blessings are individually tailored to the couple's wants. These will all be delivered professionally and with warmth and emotion. The ceremony is able to be performed anywhere - so you are not restricted to a specific venue - and may be as religious or spiritual as the couple desire it to be.
The advantages of having a celebrant is that you can have your day exactly the way you want it to be and wherever you desire. Instead of the ritual of vows, fill those special moments with songs, poems, music, readings, and anything that is special to you as a couple.
In addition to a standard wedding blessing, Mountain Celebrations' celebrants are trained in a variety of historical and traditional well known blessings, ceremonies and joinings, these include:
Sand Ceremonies - The tradition of the couple both pouring coloured sand into a container so that the sand becomes inseparable.
Hand Fasting- The Celtic tradition of binding your hands in six coloured ribbons that reflect aspects of their personalities and wishes.
Unity Candles - Each member of the couple holds a small candle that represents them. Together they use them to light a larger central candle representing their unity.
Crowning's - An ancient ritual, the crowning ceremony involves each of the couple being crowned with a decorative crown that is attached to their partner's by a white cord or ribbon. The crown can be garlands of flowers or decorated with jewels.
Salt Ceremonies- During ancient times, this ritual was performed to seal promises. Each person would take a piece of salt from their own pouch and place it in the pouch of the other, their agreement could not be broken unless an individual could retrieve their own grains of salt.
Salt itself has many plenty of symbolism, representing purity and preserving the love. Indian ceremonies often include this ritual.
Jumping the Broom - Make the first step into your marriage quite literally with jumping over the broom after saying your vows. It symbolises working together as a team and sweeping away the past.
