Introducing the Outdoor Spiral Wedding Ceremony Layout at Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester
Social media is a wonderful source of inspiration and information. A short while back a different style of outdoor ceremony layout caught our eye ‘The Spiral’.
Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester set out to recreate the spiral wedding ceremony layout on the main lawn of the house. Each chair was positioned to create an aisle for the wedding couple to walk through on their way to the wedding ceremony held in the centre of the spiral. First the Groom, followed a short while later by the Bride.
Each guest attending this most celebratory of services will have a close up view of the wedding couple who in turn are ale to acknowledge their guests with time to exchange a few words of congratulations before the wedding ceremony commences. Once married, the couple return together back through the spiral aisle, again in full view of each person attending the ceremony.
'Warming of the Wedding Rings' Ritual and the Spiral Wedding Ceremony layout at Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester
‘Warming of the rings’ is an incredibly moving and emotive ritual leading up to the exchange of the wedding vows. How does this work?
Each guest, starting at the outer most chair in the spiral, touches the wedding ring (s) as it passes along the chairs until it reaches the wedding couple, in the inner circle, for placement on the ring finger. The ring or rings are warmed by the heartfelt love of the guests as part of the ceremony ritual. We fell in love with this idea and couldn’t wait to bring this to Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester.
