Saying yes to love

Last Tuesday I conducted another handfasting ceremony, this time for a man and a woman who had fallen in love as teenagers, and then been separated for more than a decade. But they found one another again, although they’d been separated by family misunderstandings, thousands of miles, and time. Yet when they met again earlier this year, they met one another – deeply, fully – and said “Yes,” to one another, to love and to life.

During the ceremony, the family members who had separated them so many years before were not only present, but took full part, and gave a personal blessing on the couple and their marriage. It was a privilege to witness, not only such deep love, but also such deep healing.
