Include a Sand Ceremony in your Wedding

A Sand Ceremony symbolises the joining of two lives. The Bride and Groom each have a glass container (such as a vase) of sand which represents their own individuality, beauty, strength and character and qualities they take into the marriage. They pour their individual containers into another larger glass container symbolising the joining of their lives.

When the sands are blended together, they create a new unique entity and, just as the grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into individual containers, so will you remain together and enjoy a wonderful journey of many different experiences and memories.

This ceremony can also incorporate children and other family members and works particularly well when blending families; giving each child a glass container of sand and recognising his or her importance within the family unit.
