I thought you may be interested in this link


I know this is an Australian Celebrant, but he has a heap of info on  his site about celtic traditions.

I am using Phillip for our Ceremony.  It will be outdoors by the Lake and will incorporate a Handfasting, Ring Washing/Blessing and Sword Fasting.  I am of Celtic Heritage, and the Celtic Traditions really speak to me spritiually.  When I think of the Celts I think of earth centered traditions that are based on nature and draw from the daily surroundings of the couple.

Maybe you could do a search on the net and find someone in your area that specialises in scottish/celtic wedding traditions.

We commissioned a celtic knotwork mat to frame our ketubah (Jewish marriage contract), so we could acknowledge our Irish heritage.  You could do something like that or a quaker marriage certificate, etc…

Your invitation suite and your music are also good places to play up the theme.  I didn’t spend a whole lot of time researching celtic ceremony traditions (we were already trying to intertwine Catholic and Jewish ceremonies), but I didn’t find a lot of good resources for that.

I did the Celtic Astrology inserts in my programs, they were a big hit!

My man and I are going Celtic too. And it is surprisingly hard to find stuff for inspiration. Try searches on “Irish” and you might find more. One of the things I found and fell in love with is a small stone with the wedding date carved on it. You can hold the stone during the vows so they will be “Set in Stone” it’s called an “Oath Stone”
