Hand Blessing during the Wedding Ceremony by Perth Wedding Celebrant
During a Wedding Ceremony it is almost certain that the Bride and Groom will exchange Wedding Rings while they are exchanging some beautiful words that they have chosen for one another:
“With this ring, I marry you today and pledge my faithful love.”
As a Wedding Celebrant in Perth many of my couples are looking for a Romantic way to conclude the Ring Exchange part of their Wedding Ceremony.
One suggestion I like to make is that after the exchange of Wedding Rings a nice touch is for your Marriage Celebrant to bless your hands that have your new Wedding Rings. It can be very descriptive, emotional and can make quite an impact to your family and friends. The Wedding Celebrant, if you wish, can even place their hand over your hands as he says the blessing.
Here is a common Ring Blessing that is quite beautiful and touching and would give your Wedding a romantic touch to proceedings:
Ring Wedding Blessing:
These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.
These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes: tears of sorrow and tears of joy.
These are the hands that will comfort you in illness, and hold you when fear or grief racks your mind.
These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times.
These are the hands that will give you support and encourage you to chase your dreams. Together, everything you wish for, can be realized.
