im at a christian school which is quite hard because they find it hard to understand me and what i belive. and when i talk of having a pagan wedding they think of witches and spilling blood. to me thats quite the opposit! i just want to be part of mother earth!
I want a Pagan wedding and don't know how to go about it.
And also will we be legally married?
This was a brilliant wedding story.
It's good to see more openess and understanding about us that follow the pagan path. Heather is correct we need more of these articles to show the world that we are not like the stereotypes. Blessed Be John, Member of Nothampton Pagan's a group for all pagans in the Northampton area.
im fasinated by the idea of paganism and when im older would love a pagan wedding. my dad is a vicar but also loves the idea. i think he is a pagan at heart!
yeah, this is really nice to see.
i myself am exploring the pagan faith, and have just got engaged. so this has come at the perfect time for me to look into it more!
I have always thought that I would hate a normal wedding. I feel i am conected to the earth and now see that there is an alternative. Thank you for opening my eyes
Thanks for a very moving and lovely remembrance of a slightly "different" take on a marriage ceremony. In July 2006, my sweetheart and I are marrying in our home town of Chester, CT, and we are spiritual, not church, people who also love nature. Due to the unsettled nature of Connecticut weather, we are opting for an indoor wedding in an old historic building. Happily, we are surrounded by much foliage -- mature trees, bushes, flowers -- and a rushing brook just outside the building. Being inspired by the "jumping the broom" and the words, ". . .I take thee to my hand, my heart, and my spirit," I hope we can incorporate these small but significant parts into our own civil ceremony. All the best & love, all ways!
My family is Pagan. My brother recently had a Handfasting. I decorated and gave him and his wife to be a Broom to jump. Believing that it was the Pagan thing to do...However, My brother wife to be is A beautiful Black woman. Who took offense to my offer of the Broom. Knowwing her to be Pagan too, I never thought I would have to explain the Pagan Aspect of the Broom and why I choose it. However, the Handfasting was beautiful and they did jump the broom. History is amazing. People and culture is wonderful. Once we open our eyes to the Bigger picture. We can all learn to see with eyes unclouded by hate. I AM VERY GLAD TO SEE OTHER PAGANS JUMPING THE BROOM.
I am hoping to have a pagan wedding ceremony but don't know how I am to go about it. I would like to recieve some infomation on it if it isn't too much trouble please. ^_^
me and my partner are going to have a handfasting and its lovley to hear how others have gone and how much u enjoyed it bright blessings
A fantastic article.
Tom & I have been together 4.5 years and have a 2.5 yr old daughter. Neither of us want to get legally married as we don't agree with the historical 'ownership' implications of marriage and don't follow the christian faith. We both love nature and we live at Crystal Waters, a permaculture community in Queensland, Australia. I have been attracted to the holistic, caring and nature-loving aspects of pagan beliefs for several years. We are planning our committment ceremony for this July. This article has helped bring it all together for us, thanks!
Just what I am looking for! We would like a blessing and have consider a pagan one. Great for people who are not intune with the bible but are earth and nature lovers!
Fabulous - its nice to finally have it shown that us witches are loving caring people and not scary hallmark fantasies with stripy tights and warts!!
It's amazing how ignorant the public is as to to extreme Roman Paganism of most matrimonious weddings. Certainly not Biblical.
Get real - its not all nicey nicey - this is serious stuff! Dangerous...
I agree, it is a lovely article and it is nice to see the facts for once. Shame the lady above didn't say how you could join the Northampton Pagan Group.
Blessings to all, Graham
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for writing such a wonderfully understanding and acurate article.. the Pagan community needs more of these sort of articles to finally be accepted as the gentle, loving, caring spirituality that it is.
Thank you again

nice to see a Pagan ceremony treated seriously for a change, without trying to make something scandalous of it.
