What if I have second thoughts before I walk down the aisle?

What sort of couples choose to do a Pagan Wedding Ceremony?

Related to Ceremony

The type of couple most likely to perform a Pagan style wedding ceremony, are couples who are 'rural' in their virtues and beliefs (ie; 'of the land'). Also, couples who are having an outdoor ceremony, generally set in a forest or wood, or on a farm or similar rural environment. In English folklore, Pagan marriage ceremonies are largely associated with the secular (non-religious) villager style ceremonies of the Middle to Dark Ages, often simple in decoration and grandeur, but rich in purpose and meaningful in content.
