Handfasting Cords for Everyone!!

I married the other half in a fantastic tiny ceremony on a remote beach in Scotland a couple of years ago. We didn't want a church wedding, and didn't like the rules that were dictated to us if we got married in a certified location like a stately home, so we had a Humanist ceremony, which meant we could pretty much write the rules ourselves. We had a fantastic time picking a location and planning the whole thing, and we included handfasting as part of the day (I fell in love with the idea after seeing the gorgeous moonlit ceremony in Braveheart years ago!). Trouble was, I really struggled to find any cords that were exactly what I wanted - handfasting has been something that's been viewed as predominantly pagan until the last few decades, so most cords were a little too un-sparkly for my liking. So I decided to make my own, and a little while after that, Binding Ties was born!

So if you like the idea of something a little bit different on your special day, if you want something other than photos and a ring to hold in your hands for years after it all, take a look at my site and see if you like the look of anything. If there's something that you're after but you don't see it - let me know, and I'll see what I can put together :-)
