Ready to Tie the Knot?
It is the springtime of the year and thoughts turn to love.
To all people past and present, courtship leading to marriage
is one of the great rites of passage in human life.
The time when one joins with another, when two come together to make one, is both personal and otherwordly.
Throughout time there have evolved any number of traditions and rituals designed to ensure the health, wealth and fertility of a betrothed couple.
Unlike the sometimes elaborately orchestrated weddings which take place today, our ancestors were often sealed together in a simple, natural ceremony called HANDFASTING...
Handfasting is a betrothal or wedding ritual in which the couple's clasped hands are tied together by a cord or ribbon — hence the phrase "tying the knot".
More and more, this ancient and richly spiritual tradition has found it's place with couples today who wish to be united in love and life with a Handfasting ceremony.
So, are you ready to 'tie the knot'? If so, let Love Bound make your day!
