Frequently asked questions- Handfasting
What is Handfasting?
Handfasting is a Betrothal of Love dating back to Celtic times and before there was any kind of church ceremony. In Celtic times, it was the only form of public commitment of a couple's love for each other. It was then seen as a form of marriage.
The Church soon became involved in performing wedding ceremonies for which they charged a fee. These Church fees were often seen as too expensive for poorer folk which ensured the continuation of Handfasting as a pure independent betrothal of love.
