Weddings & Handfastings




Legal Weddings & Spiritual Handfastings

  Same-Sex Legal & Commitment Ceremonies

Handfasting-  An ancient custom that traditionally stems from Ireland,
Scotland, and Northern England, and predates Christianity. It is performed
by a priest or priestess, who invokes the energies of the four natural
elements and the blessings of God, to create a sacred space in which the
couple can be joined. The word handfasting got its name because during the
ceremony the bride & groom’s hands are tied together. From this practice
the phrase “tying the knot” has come to mean getting married. Handfasting
survives in many forms today, and is present in many western religious and
secular ceremonies.”


Step 1. Consultation
All Weddings/Handfastings performed by Amy K. will begin with a
consultation with both members of the couple. This process is to determine
the hopes, preferences, concerns and expectations of the marrying couple.

planning the ceremony, discussion of custom or pre-written vows/ceremony,
location, other wedding party members, spiritual orientation and
