Generally, we allow some customization of rituals. However, our rituals have a format that is followed. We do our best to reflect your feelings and encourage you to write your own vows for weddings/handfastings. This will make the ceremony more personal and meaningful to you and all those involved. There are countless ritual elements that can be incorporated into your specific rite to make it more meaningful and unique. Some common options include a candle procession, skyclad blessings, purification in water, and wine sharing. However, please note that some rites may not be as customizable as others; refer to your assigned minister for details regarding your specific rite.
