Officiant:<br /> Groom and Bride have chosen to do something unique and special today in tying “a fishermen’s knot”

Also known as a true lovers knot, the fisherman’s knot forms one of the most durable bonds. The binding consists of two interlocking, overhand knots that create a symmetrical figure eight. The simple knot strengthens under pressure and becomes sturdier when it gets wet.

(Groom and Bride will be holding these strands for this part of the ceremony.)<br /> Start Tying of the “love knot” (slow for photographer)

Spoken after you tie the first part of the knot<br /> To start the knot, both Groom and Bride must do their part as individuals.

Groom:  As these two strands intertwine<br /> Bride:  So we join, your life and mine.<br /> bride and groom finish tying the knot

Officiant:   spoken after you finish the knot<br /> In finishing the knot, Groom and Bride will understand that only together, and through continued effort can they create a lasting union.

I love this!  This would be perfect for my ceremony–FI is not religious but definately want something to symbolize our bond—plus Fiance loves to fish and we go out on the boat every chance we get.  Thanks for sharing! 🙂
