photography of humanist wedding ring warming ceremony anglesey north wales
This was a fantastic rustic wedding held on the beautiful isle of Anglesey, North Wales. There were so many photography opportunities during this celebration. Being a relaxed documentary photographer it was great to float about and capture the details as they naturally occurred. One of these little events with lots of detail was a ring warming ceremony which made up part of a humanist ceremony.
Having a ring warming ceremony is a wonderful way to include your guests and allow them to actively participate in your wedding day. It will also add even more meaning to the rings that you and your spouse will wear every day.
A ring warming ceremony gives wedding guests an opportunity to hold your wedding bands and wish you good luck for your marriage. Each guest will, briefly, hold your rings either before or during your ceremony and take a moment to bestow their blessings upon them.
It is a meaningful way to involve all your guests in the ceremony and makes your wedding bands so much more significant knowing that you are wearing everyone’s blessings on your finger!
The rings are passed from guest to guest during the ceremony, receiving well wishes and blessings along the way. They are then returned to the bride and the groom who exchange them as a symbol of their love.
