A little teaser of Kristie and Jarrad’s stunning winter wedding at Raffertys Resort.
We love off-beat wedding ceremonies and anything with a personal twist, so when Kristie and Jarrad’s awesome celebrant, Monty King, put a new spin on the exchange of the wedding rings we loved it.
Actually we loved it so much we’re going to quote him, and the words he pinched from the internet, in the secret hope we hear more fresh ideas like this in ceremonies to come.
‘This is the point in the ceremony where we usually talk about wedding bands being a perfect circle, with no beginning and no end. As you each place the other’s ring on their finger, consider this; rings do have a beginning. Rock is dug up from the earth, metal is liquified in a furnace at 1,000 degrees, moulded, cooled, and painstakingly polished. Something beautiful is made from raw elements.
Love is like that. It’s hot, dirty work. It comes from humble beginnings, made by imperfect beings. It’s the process of making something beautiful where there was once nothing at all. So these rings symbolise the acceptance of imperfections and the recognition of beauty and love.’
