Handfasting is an ancient Ireland Celtic tradition, in which a man + woman came together at the start of their marriage relationship. Each partner holds the hands of the other, right hand to right hand, left hand to left, their wrists crossed. The ribbon is wound around the wrists over the top of one and under and around the other, creating the infinity symbol. The practice gave way to the expression “tying the knot”. So fun to learn what that phrase came from! :)

Magic Hanky  This charming custom symbolizes fertility. Traditionally the bride incorporates it into her dress, carries it with the bouquet or carries it in her sleeve. Once the wedding is over, the bride uses the handkerchief to make a christening bonnet for her first-born child. For this shoot, they tied/wrapped the brides wildflower bouquet with an embroidered ‘magic’ hanky.
