This is the first book published in the UK about handfasting! It will take you on a historical journey, starting with pre-Christian times. It describes the customs and traditions associated with betrothal from times and places in the world where our forbears were in tune with the changing seasons and the natural rhythms of the world they lived in.
The increasing popularity of handfasting is recognition that the current alternatives of church or civil ceremonies offer little in the way of deeper meaning in our increasingly pagan times.
In this book, Mary Neasham offers practical advice on creating your own handfasting ceremony. A very modern way to commit to another person based on the lore and customs of our ancestors.
