Love Lock Ceremony - A New Twist on a Unity Ceremony

April 9, 2019

Couples for years have included a candle or sand of different colors to symbolize them coming together as one and bound together for life. The Love Lock Ceremony, which is relatively new, involves two Locks and two Keys. The Ceremony is of Chinese origin but no one knows how or when this ancient custom began. It symbolizes opening your hearts, your lives to one another. 

 In a Love Lock Ceremony, the Bride and Groom lock their individual heart padlocks together as one. They may then assure that the keys that first opened their hearts can never be used to separate what has been joined in their wedding. Sometimes the keys are tossed into a place from which they can never be retrieved. Sometimes the keys are tied to helium balloons and released; sometimes they are buried in a meaningful location or melted in a fire. Sometimes they are kept as a keepsake, displayed as a reminder of the love that brought them together. Locks and Keys Set may be purchased on Love Locks, Amazon or Etsy.

If you are planning to have a blended family ceremony, the Love Locks Tree of Life   ceremony can involve children and parents as well.  Additional Petite LoveLocks can be  engraved and locked to the leaves and branches of the Tree of Life. Each child is as individual and unique as a leaf on a tree. Parents are the foundation of the couples beginning and can be included; as they lock onto the roots of the Tree of Life it represents the strength and support.  The message engraved on LoveLocks is the commitment and joy shared with the couple and the blessing they have been.

"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
