The Importance of Rituals

Seeing as we are going to be spending the entire year bringing you Wedding Rituals/Traditions, I wanted to tell you a little about why this was so important to us.

Across the world ceremonies or rituals are used to define the more important stages of our lives and a wedding ceremony is the perfect example of one of those stages being at the height of tradition and formality.

From superstition and myth to etiquette, dress and both ancient and modern rituals, wedding ceremonies are steeped in tradition and symbolism.

Many cultures still actively practise ancient traditions or may have adapted some to suit a more modern environment, but nonetheless they still hold the same meaning and importance to those who practise them.

While as a modern society we may have somewhat moved away from some of the more outlandish rituals of stealing a bride away from her family or slapping each other with fish for good luck, it has become very ‘trendy’ of late to incorporate more of the common and meaningful traditions into today’s wedding ceremony.

Adding a ritual to your ceremony can provide the perfect opportunity to include all of your guests or even a select few whom you really want to play a part. Including a ritual is also a great way of blending families in a really unique way and allows wedding guests to actually see something interesting and heart felt.

If you honestly sat down and thought about all of the ceremonies that you have attended (and for me as a celebrant that is one heck of a lot!) they can often all blend into a distant fond memory, but if the couple did something that was unique, different or that evoked in you an emotional response, then chances are this will be a ceremony that will stay with you always.

For me, doing ceremony after ceremony every weekend is a wonderful experience and opportunity to see people from all different backgrounds, but officiating so many ceremonies often leaves them as a bit of a blurr in my distant memory.

There are, however, probably 4 or 5 out of all that I have done that have stuck with me as clear as if they were yesterday and that was simply because they used a ritual or tradition that touched or inspired me and because of that their exchange was etched in my mind forever.

One of these was something I hadn’t seen a couple do before and it was called the ‘silent rose ceremony’.

As I stood with the groom at the front of the assembled guests under a gorgeous flower lined gazebo, the music began playing and the bride appeared at the end of the garden. She walked up slowly on her brothers arm and when she reached the front of the group the groom walked forward and joined her, taking her arm.

Together they walked over to his mother first, and silently handed her a single gorgeous white rose. Nothing was said, they just each kissed her cheek and embraced her and then walked silently over to the bride’s mother and did the same to her. As the mothers were each unaware that this was going to take place they were both sobbing gorgeously and I think every guest including myself had a tear in their eye. The bride and groom then walked back to stand before me and the ceremony began. It was truly one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen done and yet so simple.

I’m not saying that including a ritual or tradition in your ceremony is right for everyone, but if you can find something that suits who you are then you should absolutely go for it. Make sure your ceremony is one that will be etched in your guests memories forever.

Week 3 - Ring Warming Ceremony

Welcome to Ritual/Tradition number 3 in our 52 Rituals in 52 Weeks

This is a fairly common, but very sweet ritual that you may have seen done before in a ceremony. It is simple, easy and doesn’t require any elaborate props in order to pull it off beautifully and successfully.

Basically prior to the ceremony taking place, the rings are placed into a small lace or chiffon bag ensuring the top of the bag is tied tightly so they are not able to come out as it is passed among the guests. Some people like to simply tie the rings together with a ribbon and allow them to be passed, however I personally wouldn’t recommend this as it is not worth the risk of one of them being dropped.

Once the bride arrives and the celebrant/Priest has welcomed everyone they may say something like: (my preferred version, but there are many to choose from or you can add your own wording).

“During this ceremony (grooms name) & (brides name) will exchange rings. They have entrusted the keeping of the rings with (insert name) who will be passing them around to each and every one of you individually.

As this ceremony proceeds we ask that you, their families and friends take part in the warming of these rings as a sign of your love and support for this union.

We ask that you, as their most trusted loved ones wish them health and happiness, laughter and good fortune and all that is noble and good in life.

These rings are the visible signs of their commitment to one another.

I ask that each person take the time to hold them for a moment, warm them with your hopes and wishes and love, then pass them on to the next person. I ask that all present voice a silent wish or prayer for this couple, for their marriage and their future together.

When these rings come back to (insert name) they will contain, in their precious metal, that which is more precious and yet is priceless, your love and pledge of support”.

The Celebrant/Priest then proceeds with the ceremony (or music can be played while the rings are ‘warmed’).

When it comes time in the ceremony for the rings to be exchanged by the couple , the celebrant/Priest may either also express a wish or blessing for the couple before they are placed or they may simply hand them to the couple to place.

This is a simple and easy ritual, yet a very effective way of including each and every guest and evoking a beautiful sense of inclusion and emotion.

Procedure for Church weddings

You have one opportunity to take your vows in an unforgettable ceremony, surrounded by your loving family and friends. Getting married will change your lives dramatically.
Change can be a good thing, but amidst all the excitement, you will need to feel emotionally calm and safe to be good to one another and to continue to love one another. Be one another’s soft place to fall, protect, encourage and look after one another.

A church is the ideal place to get married: there is a solemn atmosphere; it creates a dignified backdrop with heavenly organ music. You dedicate your lives to one another and to God, the strongest ally in all the world.
This is different from a birthday party or a reunion or an office party. This is the real thing! The contrast between the solemnity of a church ceremony and the jollity of the reception will add a special sparkle to the event.
The minister
Ask the minister to discuss the exact order of events during the ceremony with you. Remember to pay him and to invite him and his wife to the reception.
The minister will probably advise you to attend a premarital adjustment course. Invest in such a course it really is worth the effort!
Inform the minister in writing about who will provide any musical items, as well as the name of the composition and the composer.
The verger (a church official who acts as a caretaker and attendant and looks after the inside of a church, usually including the furnishings and the vestments) Book and discuss the day, date and time of your wedding with the verger well ahead of time. Ask him for information about all fees that have to be paid (the verger, organist, minister, etc.). Arrange a time for the rehearsal.
Arrange a day before the wedding when the bridal group, verger, minister and, if possible, the choir can rehearse at the church. Make sure that everyone concerned knows exactly what will happen when.
Order of service
Include the names of the minister/officiant /priest, organist, choir, other soloists, composers and even the bridal retinue (if there is room) on the printed order of service. References to the readings, music and the words of the hymns that are to be sung should also be inserted.

Who sits where?
The bride’s family and friends sit on the left in the front of the church, the groom’s family and friends sit to the right.
When everyone has taken his/her place about five minutes or so before
the bride enters the bride’s mother enters and sits down in the first or second pew from the front. She keeps a place open next to her for the bride’s father along the aisle.

The order of events
The bride and her father drive to the church together she sits in the back of the car at the right, with her father to her left. He brings her into the church walking to his right: this is the place of honour. Her left hand rests on his right forearm, but she can tuck her hand into his arm if she needs a little more support.

The bride’s entrance is a dramatic moment: the guests rise, the organ music rings out joyously in a wedding march or another classical piece.

The groom and the best man wait in the front of the church. The bride’s father gives her to the groom at the end of the aisle. The bride stands in the centre, her father kisses her on her forehead or cheek, he and the groom shake hands (he tells the groom to treat his new wife well) and the bridal couple walk forward to the centre, right in front of the marriage officer.

The bride and groom do not touch. Once the minister (who must be a licensed marriage officer) has said ‘Take each other’s right hand’, they exchange rings and hold each other’s right hands. Only then should she take his arm (unless either of them needs more support before that moment!). After the blessing, the bridal couple, the minister and the witnesses sign the register. Then the bridal group leaves the church.

The bridal group leaves the church in the following order:
The bridal couple in front, followed by the bride’s mother walking out with the groom’s father to her right, then the groom’s mother with the bride’s father to her right, then the retinue.

The flower girls leave the church before the guests do so that they can be ready to distribute the confetti at the doors.

The photographer and videographer
A video and wedding photographs of the ceremony are precious mementoes. However, you need to agree with the minister and photographers about when the pictures are to be taken and how many will be taken.

Arrange a meeting between the videographer and the photographer sometimes they can get in each other’s way unless they have made some
prior arrangements. So, for example, the one can take the lead once, then the other

Inter Faith Marriages/Weddings

by Uganda Wedding Bells

In today’s multicultural society it is becoming increasingly common for couples from different religions to get married. Faith and religious beliefs shared by the engaged couple is likely to be the biggest factor in determining what kind of wedding it will be.

Incorporating the two different faiths may seem daunting at first, but here are a few ideas that may help relieve some of the stress.

Establish clear communication with your partner
It is important that both you and your fiancé discuss how many and what religious traditions, if any, will be incorporated in the ceremony. Be clear on what you both feel comfortable and uncomfortable with and understand that compromises will need to be made.
Involve both families
It is likely that the most opinionated views and disappointment will come from family members particular parents and older family members who may not like the idea that you are straying away from tradition. Perhaps it may be practical to use a celebrant for each faith or even two weddings to make everyone feel included. However if this is not possible the most sensible way to help them understand your decision is to include and involve both families in the planning process. Be firm about what you want and don’t want but again be willing to compromise and be flexible.
Consider your guests
When combining two faiths in a wedding ceremony it would be naïve to expect the guests to follow and understand the rituals that may take place. It is possible that some of your guests may not have attended a ritual outside of their own faith. It is therefore a good idea to create a program for them that explains why certain rituals take place and the significance and meaning behind them.
Combine both faiths
If you both want to incorporate both rituals you may consider having the ceremony in both places, say visit Kibuli Mosque and All Saints. Please note that you have to plan ample time for this!
A universal wedding on neutral ground
Alternatively you may choose a wedding that is not based on any religious ground. Have reading and music that is not religious. Ask the celebrant to use non-inclusive language and not terms that are specific to any certain religion. Instead have the celebrant focus on universal themes and marriage themes of love and unity. It might also be a good idea to avoid having the ceremony in a place of worship unless it is very important for either the bride or groom. Or If you both want to incorporate both rituals into your ceremony, combine readings and music form both religions. You might also want to have 2 officiants present, one for each religion.

Tips on How to Avoid Children Ruining The Occasion

Many couples have relatives and friends with children who are cute as a button, or maybe even children of their own. Typically these children become flower girls and ring bearers which make a charming addition to any wedding party. However, their adorable ways can turn into antics fast without proper planning. If you are planning on having children in your bridal party, the following are a few tips to make sure that your pint-size guests meet your expectations.

A child loves to be the center of attention but today is not the day. In order to make them feel special take a few moments to show your appreciation. Before the ceremony, take a few pictures with them, tell them how cute they look, and give them a special gift just as you would the rest of your wedding party.

For those ceremonies not taking place in the morning, make sure your flower girl and ring bearer take a nap. No one wants a cranky child. Other pre-ceremony musts are using the restroom have to go light snack to avoid hunger, a double check of clothing for stains, go over directions, and give praise. Give them confidence and reinsurance so they do not freeze when all eyes are looking at them walking down the aisle.

Prevent children from being uncomfortable by providing a snack before and after the wedding ceremony. Choose snacks that will not make a mess nor stain clothing; crackers, string-cheese, and sugar cookies, and small bottles of water, are a good choice. Package treats in coordinating bags, embellished with ribbons and personalized name tags. Prepare treats for more than just your flower girl and ring bearer; other young children (if invited) will also become antsy sitting through the ceremony. Designate a parent or older child to pass out the treat bags.

Even though the flower girl and ring bearer are part of the bridal party, they may not be the most patient when standing during the vow exchange. Let them sit in the front row during the ceremony. Make sure that their parent or grandparent can motion them to take a seat beside them. Then let them rejoin the party during the processional. Also make sure that the child’s parent or another family member is prepared to scoop up the child if a tantrum breaks out. It is not the most ideal situation but knowing that someone is prepared well give you peace of mind.

Another widely accepted tip is to have fake rings attached to the pillow for the ring bearer to carry. Depending on the age of the child, younger children have a tendency to drop and loose things. Give the real rings to the best man and maid of honor.

After the ceremony can be the most important time to give the children notice. This is a time of celebration when all the attention turns to the bride and groom. Children can sometimes become confused on what to do next. Give them a hug, thank them, and let them know that you will see them later if you have decided that children will be allowed at your reception. If so, save them a dance!

Hopefully these tips help you start brainstorming on what to expect and how to be prepared for your younger wedding party guests. It may seem like a lot of work but it will save you a lot. You will t hank me when the wedding is done and it is a success

Week 2 - Sand Ceremony

  Welcome to week 2 of our '52 traditions / rituals in 52 week'  this week we are bringing to you a demonstration of a 'sand ceremony' also known as the unity sand ceremony. Our resident celebrant blogger susan considers it to be one of the most popular ceremonies she performs.

Step by Step Guide:

1. A clear glass vase is placed in the centre of a small table at the ceremonies location. To add a personal touch you can accessorise or engrave it with the couple’s initials or names and the wedding date.

2. Two smaller vases containing different coloured sands are placed either side of the central vase, one for the bride and one for the groom. These sands can be in the wedding colours.

3. During the sand ceremony, the priest or celebrant will verbally direct the couple to take turns to pour the sand from their individual vases into the central vase, creating a layered effect.

4. Finally they will pour the remainder of the sand into the vase at the same time so that the two colours combine and can’t be separated, symbolising their unity in marriage. A poem or reading can be recited at the same time as the sand is poured.

Tip: If your ceremony is at a beach the celebrant may take some sand from the ground and pour it as the final layar to symbolise where the couple confirmed their unity and commitment.

Video Demonstration:

We sincerely hope you enjoy the video dont forget to follow our blog so you can enjoy the fun, inspiring and informative information the next 50 weeks has to bring! If you have any questions or would like us to post any of the wording then please leave a comment and we will do our very best to get back to you within 24hours. Enjoy!

Skin Care For The Bride- What Every Bride Must Do

Skin Care:

What every Bride Must Do:

Exercise gets your circulation going, flushes out toxins and tones up your body. Get into a routine that you enjoy. A 30- minute run or walk, a dance class or jumping rope/ skipping are some good options. Swimming, though a form of good exercise, is not the advisable option because a combination of the sun and chlorine are likely to play havoc with your complexion

Where as your facial skin is the main focus for beauty treatments prior to your wedding, there are other areas that will complete a great picture and that will complete a great picture and that should not be regretted; make sure you also, with the help and advice of a professional, embark on a regimen of regular hair treatments, hand and feet care, as well as full-body treatments

As far as diet goes, the rules to follow are simple. There is no need to get yourself started on some hard-to-follow detox diet. Just keep in mind the following:
Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and drink lots of fresh juice
Drink eight large glasses of water per day
Cut out alcohol
Limit the amount of fat you take in. do not eliminate it completely. A little bit is good for your skin’s elasticity

Beauty Care:
The importance of cleansing, toning and moisturizing your face and neck can not be more emphasized. This should be done twice daily as you start your day and as you end it. In addition, a little extra care is needed occasionally for deeper cleansing. A mask will help draw out impurities from your pores and will also help to tone your skin further.
There are a wide range of beauty masks on the market, but the easiest natural way to do it is with honey:

•    Warm up your face by either steaming it over a bucket of hot water for about 5 minutes or gently washing it with a warm towel to open up the pores
•    Apply a thin layer of honey and leave it on for 30 minutes

•    Rinse off gently with warm towel and finish off with a splash of cold water to close up the pores

•    A mask treatment should typically be done once a week.

Wedding Day Checklist

 The little things you must not forget

The day is finally looming on the horizon. You have a mixture of emotions going on. Excitement, anxiety, happiness, your heart bursting with love and then…a nagging unsettling feeling that you cannot quite put your finger on creeps in to rain on your parade

Everything seems already in place. The main service providers are all booked and paid for, and you have a team to oversee that everything is delivered and set up on time.

A written (not mental) checklist of the things you need to oversee yourself as the bride /groom:

Honey moon

Are your tickets, passports, vaccination cards all ready/ up to date? Are your hotel reservations confirmed? Have you done your packing? Have you arranged transport to airport and pick-up when you arrive?

Wedding Night/ Morning After

You must be thinking: “Isn’t this obvious?…nice lingerie, exotic scent…” Ok, so you have the wedding night all sorted. But how about the next day? Pack something nice to wear the next day, complete with accessories,. A pretty sundress will keep you in the beautiful mood carried over from the previous day.

Wedding Day:

It is un likely that you will forget the gown, bridesmaids’ dresses and groom’s suit. It is the little things that you need to put together, preferably in labeled bags, prior to the day. Jewellery, gloves, purses, ring cushion, extra shoes, accessories for your changing out fit

Ideally each garment should be steamed/ pressed and hung in garment bag and, in addition, a carrier bag with all the accessories for the outfit should also be attached to the hanger

It is easy to overlook things like the guest book, signing pen, offertory envelopes for the entourage already filled and sealed. A checklist prepared well in advance will ensure that you have everything covered

The emergency Bag

It can not be stressed enough how vital this item is. This is not just a reel of white thread and needle thrown hastily into the maid of honor’s miniscule bag. The maid of honor/ matron’s bag can have the one reel for any emergency repair, facial oil blotters, lip gloss, small packet of wet wipes and handkerchief. Otherwise you need another reasonably sized bag with secure zipper where you will fit the following:

  • Full sewing kit
  • At least a dozen safety pins of different sizes,
  • Make-up kit
  • Packet of hand tissues
  • Pain killers
  • Extra Handkerchiefs
  • Cleanser, toner, moisturizer,
  • Band aids
  • Tooth brush and tooth paste
  • Mint sweets

Remember to have this bag in a car that will remain with the bridal entourage all the time
