A thousand hand made Origami Cranes by Perth Wedding Celebrant
Ceremony and ritual is so important in our lives. The joy of a marriage ceremony is one of the ways to celebrate great fortune in our life of finding someone we can settle down with.
I arrived at a marriage ceremony recently and witnessed 1000 Origami cranes being erected around the ceremony area. It was such a site and gave me goose bumps. The bride and groom had spent the last 6 months collection beautiful paper and folding them Origami style.
I quickly did some research and enjoyed sharing the tradition with our guests because the origins of the tradition had a simple meaning but so relevant to the wish the couple had for their life together.
An Ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand Origami cranes by hand with be granted a wish by the Gods.
Some stories believe you are granted happiness and good luck or a long and prosperous life or good health.
Seeing 1000 cranes encompasses their marriage ceremony area created an intimate ceremony space that allowed for them to celebrate their love with the prospect of every good fortune coming their way.
I am sure they will have a lifetime of great luck sharing their love with each other.
