I am always looking around for lovely Handfasting Venues that couples will fall in love with and have everything that a spiritual ceremony needs. As you may be aware Handfasting are, in general, held out in the nature, surrounded by nature. So venues have to be in lovely setting and if beautiful too, even better.
I have already conducted Handfasting in the middle of Stonehenge, which was awesome and moving at sunrise. No one other than those invited. No visitors touring around the outside. Just us, the stones and the sunrise!
I have also conducted Handfastings on windy hilltops with the guests tents making their own little village. In woods full of wonderful bluebell, which smell divine. In parkland gardens with cobbled stonewalls.
In the middle a grass field which had a track and a circle mowed especially for the ceremony. One in the lovely private garden, under a beautiful willow tree next to a stream which had a cute brick build bridge over for the party to cross to the ceremony area.
But apart from the fields and gardens there are other stone circles across the country and of course there is the Tor and Chalice Wells Gardens, where I will have the honour of conducting a Vow Renewal Handfasting Ceremony next year (2018) and also looking at one in the Avebury Circle too.
As I have already said I also conduct Handfastings in the fields of the Healing Weekend and will be there again next year. So you see I go far and wide helping couples with their ideal Handfasting in their ideal part of their world and it is a real pleasure for me.
Also a pleasure for me is being able to announce that I have been talking to an established venue, which again is in the middle of nowhere, called The Lost Village of Dode. This venue has a decommissioned church that they now use for weddings and which also doubles up for ceremony banquets. Not only this they have made their own beautiful stone circle and called it Holly Henge. This stone circle is down a slope away from the church and the whole overlooks more fields and nature, no other buildings in sight, it is truly amazing. What is more amazing is that I am now a recommended Celebrant for this beautiful place and am now offering Handfastings in the middle of these stones. I already have a couple very interested in having their ceremony there next year. If you too would like to know more about Handfastings and also the venue of the lost village please do contact me. Also if you know of any venue that would be lovely for Handfastings, or if you own such a venue, please do contact me so we can talk through how we can promote your venue and Handfastings together.
