What is a Pagan Marriage Ceremony?

Related to Ceremony

Pagan (derived from the Latin word 'paganus'), meaning 'villager', or 'of the country', provides the basis for marriage ceremonies that are generally accepted as being 'not of the church' or any particular religion. The full Pagan ceremony involves the exchange of vows, based on 6 coloured ribbons (the ribbons symbolise the virtues and beliefs of the 'Pagan' couple). After all the ribbons have been draped over the couple's hands, they are tied, then eventually removed and placed somewhere significant for the remainder of the ceremony. Need to know more?

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.

What should I do if I am having second thoughts about getting married?

Related to Relationships

However, my best advice would be to seek the opinion of a Marriage or Relationship Counsellor. Need to know more? Talk to me today about getting married - Call: 0400 161 078
