An Adventure in Love
A Handfasting is essentially a wedding. The term comes from ancient cultures that used to "tie the knot" around married partners' hands as a sign of unity. This traditional ceremony has been adapted to modern life for our everyday pagan community.
Here at 4OLK we have 4 ordained ULC ministers who are happy to perform a handfasting! They've even been through the process themselves, so if you need real life examples of simple, pagan friendly ceremonies we're just the place!

"Handfasting is an ancient Celtic ritual in which the hands are tied together to symbolize the binding of two lives."(Brides)
"The phrase refers to the making fast of a pledge by the shaking or joining of hands." (Wikipedia)
