A type of unity ceremony, the wedding sand ceremony expresses the coming together of two people or two families into one new family. It is a very simple idea that can be incredibly powerful. Typically, each person has different coloured sand and takes turns pouring it into one clear vessel, forming a layered effect. Sometimes just the couple participates, and sometimes the couple’s children and/or parents join in with their own coloured sand, adding to the layers of colours, and expressing the harmony of the entire family.
The sand ceremony is based on the unity candle — a bride and groom together light a central candle from their own flames. Yet with a candle, the flame eventually will blow out. The advantage of the sand ceremony is that there is a lasting memento to display in your home. Sand is also a better choice for an outdoor wedding, since wind is less of a concern than it is with a candle.
I do these customised glass blocks according to your specification. I also supply the vases and sand.
