Ceremony traditions around the world
If you are having a civil ceremony there are a
multitude of ceremony options that you can
pick from. From jumping the broom to breaking
plates, these options can personalise your
Jumping the broom
Jumping the broom has been associated with
ceremonies in Scotland, gypsies in Europe and
African slaves in America.
When the husband and wife clasp hands and
jump over the broom together their past is
swept away and their new life begins.
A European tradition is for each guest to bring
a porcelain plate or bowl to smash on the aisle.
The bride and groom must then clean it up
together. This is to bring good luck just before
the wedding and to prepare the couple for
facing life's trials together.
Warming of the rings
In this tradition the wedding rings of the bride
and groom are placed in a small see-through
bag and passed around to close friends and
family who put their own blessing on the
rings. A groomsman or bridesmaid are usually
appointed to keep an eye on the rings as they
are passed around.
This tradition symbolises the joining of two
individuals into one partnership. The bride and
groom will separately light one candle each,
then together take their candles to jointly light
