Symbolic actions

Symbolic actions are rituals within a ceremony that encapsulate a wealth of ideas and symbolic meanings. The exchange of wedding rings is probably the one that springs most immediately to mind, but there are symbolic actions for every occasion. Here are a few of the most popular ones and you can read about them in the feed below or in my blog (where there's a lot of other totally fascinating stuff!).  Of course, there’s no reason why you can’t create your own. Here's a few ideas:

 

Candle ceremony Sand ceremony Hand-fasting Jumping the broomstick Time capsule Quaich ceremony
