More about our Handfasting

The handfasting was a truly wonderful occassion, we had a medieval theme of sorts, and asked everyone to come dressed up in costume.

Well, did they just!!

People came as wizards, witches, Sherrif of Nottingham, vikings, maids, damsels in distress, all sorts, many made their costumes, it was truly fantastic. Children came dressed as flower fairies and page boys, looking absolutely brilliant. They loved it because they could run around with plastic swords doing play fights and no one told them off!!

Some of the gang

After the pot latch meal, we topped the handfasting off with a Hoichol type fire ceremony. Here, we make offerings of chocolate, tobacco, herbs and wine to the fire.

It was a truly magnificent day and Leslie and I could not have asked for a better occassion and such willing and wonderful guests.
