The Right Ceremony for You!

Finding the right Ceremony Styles is just as important as finding a location, a caterer and the perfect dress. A standard wedding doesn't suit everyone. You will have to check the laws and rules of the state to make sure your wedding is recognized legally, but having a wedding that reflects your own personal beliefs can help deepen the bond between the two parties being wed.

Humanist Ceremony

a non-religious, yet personal and meaningful ceremony. A Civil Ceremony is also required for the marriage to be legally binding. It is typically a short and sweet ceremony, with nothing religious about it at all. Guests enjoy the party afterwards, more than anything. People are often told to wear what they want and turn up as they please. Often times couples feel it would be hypocritical to marry in a church. A humanist ceremony is for those who are not religious, but want a traditional wedding.

Spiritual Ceremony

A spiritual ceremony celebrates the mystery of love and the sacred meaning of the marriage pledge. It can be personal, non-denominational, religious or nonreligious, and it all depends on the personal preferences of the couple being wed. A spiritual wedding is based on the universal spiritual principles and can include readings from various texts as to the spiritual connection of two entities.

Civil Ceremony

A civil wedding by definition is one where the marriage ceremony has a government or civil official perform the ceremony. It takes place without any religious affiliation and meets the legal requirements of the local government. Some countries require that a couple have their first marriage ceremony be a civil ceremony in a public location and that the ceremony is open to the public. The couples can then be married in a church and have a religious ceremony performed by a member of the clergy.

Celtic Ceremony

Many have a strong sense of connection with Celtic Symbols such as the clasped hands carved onto rings, the Celtic knot, the Celtic cross, and the handfasting ceremony. They therefore hold a Celtic Ceremony, typically in natural surroundings where Celtic Gods and Goddesses are said to be found. Celtic themes, poems and prayers are often incorporated into the wedding ceremonies.

Religious Blessings

A religious ceremony to bless the marriage that is often one of the holy sacraments of the governing church. A religious wedding can take place at a church, chapel or other registered religious building. Religious blessings often take place after a civil ceremony in a register office. Every religion has a unique method of performing the blessed ceremony of the union of the couple.

Whichever ceremony you decide upon, may your day be blessed with joy and happiness and my your choice best represent the ideals and morals of the couple to be newly wed and partnered.
