Couple Sand ceremony
During the ceremony the couple’s relationship is symbolized through the mixing together of two individual containers of sand; each representing all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without the need for anything else. When the two are blended together they represent an entirely new and extraordinary love relationship. Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination.
This ceremony involves the couple picking up containers of sand and then blending the sand together to symbolise their unity.
Family Sand Ceremony (For couples who have children already)
It is also right and fitting to celebrate and acknowledge the importance of a couple’s children as they all come together to build a family. It is the foundation of this new blended family. The children can bring containers of sand to mix together as it is all their different personalities that add beautiful colour to the tapestry of this new family. Each child brings their individual containers of sand forward to represent the essence of all they are and the gifts they bring. They then each pour their sand into the centre container, where the sands mix together and symbolize the uniting of the children and the couple into one. This can represent a lovely keepsake to cherish.
