    A handfasting ceremony is an ancient marriage ritual made popular in Ireland and Scottland during the Early Christian period. This symbolic lashing together of the couples hands is the origin of the familiar expression, tying the knot. Interesting and inexpensive alternative to a unity candle. Love this idea!!!!!

    Handfasting is an ancient Ireland Celtic wedding tradition. I need to remember this when my (Irish) daughter ties the knot

    Irish wedding traditions - like the idea of the handfasting (something to do during the ceremony mom haha), and love the Irish toasts/wedding blessings. What do you guys think?
