There were no bridesmaids, no flower girl, no Maid of Honor, no Best Man. There was no after-party, no toasts, no speeches. And you know what? It was fucking great.
This gender-neutral wedding ceremony script includes Pagan and Norse traditions, references to Doctor Who, Stranger In A Strange Land, Star Trek, and Tom Robbins, and more. Plus, a hilarious “we doo-doo” instead of “We do”!
We got married at sunset, on Friday the 13th, in our backyard. It was a pagan handfasting ceremony that was heavily influenced by our personal interests. We are both gender non-conforming, so we removed all gendered language/traditions.
Hooray! You’ve been invited to a pagan wedding! We’re so excited for you. That said, depending on your background or your beliefs, you might feel a little confused. What’s in store? Why is everyone standing in a circle? Are we talking about gods?
For those of you looking for some pagan wedding vows and ideas, I wanted to share my handfasting ceremony script. It includes introducing the handfasting ritual, a reading, pledges from family and friends, a ring-warming ceremony, and more!
Use wedding vows from ancient faiths to bring both freshness and tradition to your ceremony.
