A hand fasting wedding ceremony involves the tying of hands together with a cord, ceremonial cloth, or
colorful ribbons, to symbolize the coming together and remaining together. It can be used as a declaration of intent. Here is a sample hand fasting ceremony:
(Bride’s Name) and (Groom’sName) have chosen to include the tradition of hand-fasting into their wedding
ceremony today. Hand-fasting is a wedding ritual in which the couples’ hands are tied together as a symbol of their lives being joined together.
(Bride’s Name) and (Groom’s Name), as your hands are now bound together, so your lives are joined in a
union of love and trust. The knots of this binding symbolize the vows you have made. Like the stars, your love should be a constant source of light, and like the earth, a firm foundation from which to grow.
