Whilst researching the history of coins within ceremonies I found this interesting snippet on the Royal Mint site.
The rhyme - "Something borrowed, something blue,
Something old and something new" originally had an additional line
"and a silver sixpence in your shoe"
It seems that in Scotland the sixpence was placed in the groom's shoe and in England the sixpence was given by the Bride's father to his daughter.
Putting a sixpence in your shoe is meant to bring wealth and happiness to the new couple.
Perhaps it is a tradition we might revive.
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
