What is a Hand Fasting? In Ireland, until the mid 1700’s, few unions were sanctified in a church or synagogue. Rather, they were celebrated by a simple hand fasting ceremony in which the two partners joined hands in the fields, or in the groves of trees, like we are today. The couple would link hands to form an infinite circle, and then, their hands or wrists would be bound together, symbolizing the binding together of their two lives into one. It is from this practice that the expression “tying the knot” comes from. This package gives you the opportunity to engage in a traditional hand fasting ceremony to commemorate their entering, together, into the union of marriage.
Or you can replace the hand fasting with a tree planting, unity sand pour or candle lighting option instead.
