Rose Ceremony

The Rose Ceremony is simple yet profoundly moving. The bride and groom exchange a red rose, symbolizing the giving and receiving of their love for each other throughout their entire married life.

The Celebrant gives the Bride and Groom a rose. The rose is a symbol of love and a single rose always means I love you.

A sample of the vows at a Rose Ceremony:

Your gift to each other for your wedding today has been your wedding rings- which shall always be an outward demonstration of your vows of love and respect, and your commitment to each other.

You now have what remains the most honourable title which may exist between a man and a woman – the title of Mr and Mrs.

For your first gift as husband and wife, that gift will be a single rose.

The rose is a symbol of love and a single rose always means, I love you. So it is appropriate that for your first gift as husband and wife, that gift will be a single rose. Please exchange your first gift as husband and wife.

In some ways it seems like you have not done anything at all. Just a moment ago you were holding one small rose and now you are holding one small rose. In some ways, a marriage ceremony is like this. In some ways, tomorrow is going to seem no different than yesterday. But just now, you both have given and received one of the most valuable and precious gifts of life, the gift of true and abiding love within the devotion of marriage.

Glenda was so warm and kind & listened to what we wanted to do. I feel we knew Glenda on a personal level & that was great. To us Glenda wasn’t a Celebrant, we felt like we had known her for years. I will definitely recommend her to any friends or family.
