About A Celtic Handfasting & Wedding Officiant

Combining ancient traditions & modern customs

Do you want a wedding that is unique and beautiful, and that includes both ancient traditions and modern customs?

A wedding that is deeply spiritual, honoring the natural world and the joining of two souls, without being preachy, stuffy or boring?

A Celtic handfasting or one of my very spiritual and yet non-denominational ceremonies may be just what you are looking for!

As an experienced celebrant, I can adapt to your needs and incorporate the symbolism and elements that will truly reflect your joining of two individuals in this most beautiful of ceremonies.

I can also help you take into consideration any concerns that you may have to help all members of your family or wedding party feel comfortable. Since 1996, I have officiated at dozens of weddings of all types, from more formal and traditional services to impromptu outdoor handfastings and elopements.

It's *your* special day, and it's my honor and pleasure to help you have the best ceremony you possibly can!

One of the things that sets many of my ceremonies apart is the use of special crystal singing bowls as part of the ceremonies. The bowls are made with quartz crystal and are combined with special minerals and metals such as gold, platinum, ruby, rose quartz and amethyst. They have a wonderful sacred sound and lend a beautiful air to the day.

My rates are reasonable and cover all aspects of the process, from the free initial consultation with you to the rehearsal and the ceremony. For a Celtic handfasting ceremony, I also include a session with the couple to help you construct your own traditional handfasting cord.

I can provide references from my many previous happy couples, and can travel to most areas of Utah and beyond, and have even traveled internationally to perform weddings!

WOW!!! Can I just say we LOVED working with Heron!!!
Our ceremony was amazing. She worked closely with us and made certain it had every aspect you could want.
and let me let you in on how difficult that was...
I am Pagan, my groom is agnostic. My family is Southern Babtist and Protestant and his is Mormon. Now you don't get much more of an odd coupling than that.
It was important to us that we carry some "christian" traditions in our ceremony and important to me that we carried some "pagan" traditions and important to my groom that it not be overly religious...
Heron pulled it all off beautifully. Even when we came to her and asked her to include not only a unity candle and "loving cup" with the traditional rings and vows, but a few other things as well. She made what I was afraid was going to become chaos, into a touching ceremony that everyone was comfortable with. And we absolutely treasure our handfasting cord!
If you are searching for someone to give you a "non-traditional" ceremony. She is your gal. Even if you are looking for a traditional ceremony, she is your gal. Either way it will be worth it to have Heron officiate your day.
Thank you Heron... Thank you!!!!

I was very pleased with our Celtic Handfasting Ceremony. The rev. was flexible with the day and time of our ceremony. She provided a small romantic ceremony for us which worked out perfect. It was everything we wanted. This was a wonderful memory that both my husband and I will treasure for the rest of our lives.

Rev. Heron officiated our wedding on 10/10/10. From the very beginning of contacting her to the actual wedding she made us feel very special and honored our wishes and created the perfect ceremony! Our guest commented that it was the most beautiful and memorable ceremony ever. Most loved was the included family vowes that brought together our two families and made one truely blended family unit. The handfasting ceremony was special to us and Rev. Heron taught us how to make the cords and then during the ceremony how to officially "tie the knot". We would give her and her services 10 stars if we could- great value for the most wonderful ceremony! Thank you Rev. Heron for your special ceremony!
