Sand Ceremony rituals

What is

a sand ceremony?

Sand Ceremony rituals

In this blog, I’m going to explain what a sand ceremony is and why they are a great addition to your wedding ceremony. You can include a sand ceremony in many different types of celebrations, for example weddings, vow renewals, elopements and baby namings. If you are looking for a unique ceremony then read on!

What happens? 

Firstly, you choose different colours of sand, that represent you and your partner or your family members. Then, they are poured together symbolizing the entwining of your lives into one. Secondly, the sand symbolize everything that you and your partner have been or will become in the future. Furthermore, the blending of the sand represents the union not only of you but of your friends and families too. Once the coloured sand is poured into the unity vase, it can never be separated back into their vases, therefore they are forever entwined just as the lives and loves of you and your partner/family.

Loved ones

In addition, with a sand ceremony your children and loved ones can participate in your ceremony and as a result feel involved in your special day. If you have children you would like to involve in your ceremony, then they can pour coloured sand that represents themselves or for you and your partner!

Colours and glass

Finally, the great thing about sand ceremonies is that you can choose two colours that you love or feel represent yourselves or you can combine them with the colour scheme of your wedding. In addition, you also have endless options when it comes to choosing the glass bottles, jugs or mason jars that hold the sand. Furthermore, if you want, then you can even leave a small amount of sand in your containers to show that even though you are united, you remain individuals.

Celebrant led ceremonies 

A wedding celebrant can carry out other symbolic rituals too, for example handfastings. If you would like to learn more about the symbolic rituals I offer, then click here.
