Have you heard about handfasting ceremonies but not quite sure what they look like?  Then check out this installment of MMTV.

For those who have never heard of a handfasting ceremony, this a Celtic tradition where the hands of the couple are bound by a ribbon or cloth which words are spoken about the partnership the two hands are undertaking.  The ribbon is then tied in a knot and slipped off the couple’s hand.  Tradition holds that as long as the knot stays tied then the couple will stay together.  And a little piece of wedding trivia – this is actually where we get the saying “tying the knot”!
