Learn how to plan and officiate a Samhain / Halloween wedding: 

PROCESSION

  • The couple and the officiant stand in front of the marriage altar, arranged with items for casting the wedding spell. There are candles, a handfasting cord, and various herbs and flowers. The marriage altar and chairs should be placed inside a casting circle, marked with stones, candles, flowers, incense, and other seasonal elements. 
  • Guests are seated in a circle around the altar.

INVOCATION

  • if the couple wishes to honor specific gods, spirits, or ancestors, these can be called upon during the invocation or before the ceremony begins.

Officiant to Reception

Friends, we gather on this hallowed night, at the edge of this world and next, to witness the union of two loving souls. 

Tonight the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. We stand where flesh and magic meet, in the company of friends and spirits. 

 ______ and ______ have chosen tonight for this reason, to cast a bond for all eternity. A bond that even death won’t break.

As autumn burns brightly with every color of the flame, it’s bounty slips quietly into the serenity of winter, and then, like a sweet, slow breath, exhales, into what waits beyond. 

We are part of the natural world. Our seasons are brief. But where the physical plane gives way to spirit -- love moves like breath.

Love is woven in the wind. Unending. Eternal. 


DECLARATION OF INTENT

Officiant to Couple

______ and ______, are you ready to marry? 

  • The couple answers - Yes!

 

And have you come of your own will, compelled by love only?

Officiant to Couple

Then let us cast the spell. Repeat after me. 

  • These vows are delivered and repeated one at a time, as part of a classic call and response style vow exchange

Heart bound to heart, 
and soul bound to soul - 
I am my own but also yours. 

Our union grows of kindness and caring, 
Of trust well-deserved 
and love unerring.

Heart bound to heart, 
and soul to soul bound - 
This love is a home of our own.

This cord represents ______ and ______’s commitment to respect and cherish one another, and to build a life of joy and gratitude, from each season to the next, from this life to the next.
