Custom handfasting cord
A crios made especially for the occasion is the traditional handfasting cord of Celtic wedding custom. We have been making custom handfasting cords for some years now and love the reaction of the couple when something meaningful is expressed in their handfasting cord.
It is a creation made by them that will form a central part of their marriage ceremony, and can be very special.
We have a wide range of colours and can send you pictures of the different shades, and work closely with you on what design you would like, the length, the main colour etc.
Colours are chosen because they symbolize something significant, they match the wedding colours, or they somehow represent the weaving together of the couples lives. I have a blog piece with ideas for choosing colours here.
To inquire about a custom handfasting cord please send an email with your your name, wedding date, your location and
any idea of what colours you would like to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the form below.
The fee for a custom piece is €118 including registered post worldwide and VAT at 23%. Please get in touch at least 3 weeks before your wedding for custom orders if you're in Europe, 5 weeks for rest of world - see processing and shipping times below.
