This is really just a beautiful reading that can be incorporated into your ceremony any time from just before the vows are taken to the final words.
In it you should take it in turns to hold each other’s hands, palms up, and look into them, the hands of your soul mate. The hands are the symbol of protection, shelter and guidance for whatever you may face in years ahead. In this, you bless each other’s hands so that they may have the strength and tenderness to fulfill your vows of marriage.
The Hand Blessing can also flow on from a Handfasting ceremony.
