The Hand Ceremony Script
The Hand Ceremony is very popular in weddings. The more I performed this ceremony the more I felt it was the perfect thing to say after a couple exchanged rings so I became a standard in my formal wedding ceremony template. I change some of the words around to suit the couple and couples have made up their own phrases too. "These are the hands that will always open jars for you....." I think this is also a great options for couples who like the idea of a handfasting but are concerned their family and guests wouldn't understand the pagan tradition. I've often had couples choose this simple ceremony for their Year and Day Handfasting.
