Your Ceremony-the symbolic gestures

In addition to the exchange of rings or instead of, you may want to include other visual symbolic actions or gestures of your love and commitment and use them to involve your families and guests. If you already have children you may wish to include them by having a sand ceremony, or symbolise the joining of two families by lighting candles or further reinforce your bond and unity by having a handfasting. The cords or ribbons can be different colours to represent your values or the four season of nature and can have tassels, bead and charms added.

Symbolic gestures are not something you have to include so if it’s not your cup of tea then that’s fine too.
