Also Know, what is a Wiccan handfasting? Pagan/Wiccan Handfasting It is considered a legal marriage or a commitment made to one another for as long as your love lasts. A handfasting is performed by a priest or priestess. He or she would call upon the energies of the four elements.
Just so, how do you do a handfasting?
Ask the couple to hold one of each other's hands – the hands farthest away from the officiant as they face each other. The arms closest to the officiant can relax by their sides. Drape the ribbon or cord over their clasped hands. Say a few words (see the sample below).
What do I wear to a handfasting wedding?
What to Wear. Ideally, your invitation will give you a hint, but odds are your Pagan wedding won't involve traditional suits and cocktail dresses for the guests. An outdoor wedding is a good bet. When in doubt, opt for natural fibers and earth tones with a splash of color.
