For centuries Celtic Britain celebrated the joining of a couple by a wedding in the woods, a Handfastening, the promise of one to another with nature as a witness.
The vibrant earthy life of the woods is a magical place to start a life together. In the great chapel of the outdoors, with towering trees supporting the canopy of the wood above, shimmering green sunshine filters through to bless your marriage.
For the Celts and Pagans the tree was a potent symbol. Standing for centuries, providing shelter, food and fuel it is unsurprising that they were revered and believed endowed with magical powers. Our wood benefits from a bower built from natural materials, oak symbolising beginnings, youth and renewal as well as birch symbolising strength and stability. So as you gather with friends and family to bless your joining, let nature and the trees of the forest join too in wishing you both strength and stability in your new beginnings together.
