Symbolic actions - sand ceremonies
This is the second in this series exploring how symbolic actions can be used in Celebrant led ceremonies.
A sand ceremony creates a lasting and meaningful keepsake of the promises that are being made. A sand ceremony is suitable for all types of ceremonies.
During a sand ceremony different coloured sands are poured into a single container. Each participant has different coloured sand. They take it in turns to pour their sand into the container - creating layers of different colours. Once poured it is almost impossible to separate.
The wording for a sand ceremony reflects the different contributions each person brings to the whole.
As an alternative to sand, coloured beads or marbles can be used.

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.
