A Romantic Guide to Handfasting
Anna Franklin

A collection of rituals, recipes and folklore, A Romantic Guide to Handfasting should be a standard text for anyone thinking of, or interested in the Pagan equivalent of marriage.

The book examines the history and lore surrounding the ceremonies – and it also provides a guide for planning the special day. Including handfasting themes, vows, rituals, spells, instructions for making oils and incenses, examples of invitations, charms, recipes for the feasting, correspondences for herbs and flowers and appropriate toasts and blessings.

The author, herself a practising pagan priestess who has conducted many handfasting ceremonies and Sabbat rites, writes in an easy to follow style which cuts through the jargon and provides a practical and excellent guide to the “special day”.
