Getting married in Tuscany is all about respecting traditions, dreams and desires….let’s begin from the ceremony!
Have you already decided to celebrate your wedding with a civil or a symbolic ceremony?
No problem, our staff , in collaboration with our celebrants team, would be able to create and personalize your ritual as you prefer.
Your wedding ceremony should tell about your love and your future as a family.
Ribbon ritual or handfasting
It’s the symbolic act of tying a marrying couple’s hands together with a ribbon in order to symbolize their eternal union.
Originally Handfasting was a historical term for “wedding” in Neopagan cultures.
Unity candle ritual
The unity candle ceremony uses two taper candles with a large pillar candle (called the “unity candle”) in the center.
During the ceremony (usually after the formal vows), the bride and groom use the two taper candles to light the large pillar (unity) candle together.
Not only is this ritual the symbol for the couple’s endless love, but it also means the joint of two families in a single one.
During the ceremony, after the ring exchange bride and groom will have a small glass with sand inside.
Together you will stream sand in one big glass , mixing the colors and contents …. a symbol of their permanent ( or: indissoluble, long lasting) union.
Unity painting ritual
This ritual is a modern one and usually alternative to the unity candle and sand rituals. The meaning of this ritual is based on the fact that every marriage starts out as a white canvas and every day is a new spot of color, a new line added to the piece of art.
The canvas represents the day of the wedding, and a new beginning for the spouses.
The colors represent BRIDE and GROOM’s milestones, their celebrations, tribulations, passions and dreams… their way of being themselves.
As in every painting there will be places on the canvas where the colors blend and mix perfectly, flowing together, creating a new color. But there will be also places where the colors are in contrast, dark or messy.
However, when you step back and look at the canvas as the all you will see that it clearly is “An Original Masterpiece”.
Tree planting ritual
Originally, Jewish plants trees in their child’s honor and watch the child and the tree grow together.
In this way they celebrate life with life, marking its importance in parent’s lives.
The same ritual has been adapted to wedding ceremonies.
The new tree planted by the bride and the groom celebrate their new start together, the birth of their family which would grow harmoniously with the tree.
