Wedding ceremony rituals: a sand unity ceremony

A sand ceremony is very popular in Southern Spain. It is just one of many rituals which can be included in your Celebrant ceremony.

A family sand unity ceremony

Include children, godchildren, nephews, nieces, parents, grandparents.

The Wedding sand ceremony symbolises the joining together of two people or two families into one new family. It is a simple idea that can be incredibly powerful.


Typically, each person has a different coloured sand and takes turns pouring it into one clear vessel, forming a layered effect. Perhaps you are bringing together two cultures and might want to include sand from your place of birth. If you have travelled, you may want to include some sand from significant places.


Maybe just you the couple participate, or maybe your children or parents join in with their own coloured sand, adding to the layers, expressing the blending of the family.

Sand Unity Ceremony

There are no rules with a celebrant ceremony – we create a ceremony that is unique to you.

The sand ceremony is based on the unity candle ceremony where a bride and groom light a central candle from their own flames. However, with a candle, the flame eventually will blow out.


The advantage of the sand ceremony is that there remain a lasting momento to display in your home. Sand is also a better choice for a wedding outside as wind is less of a concern than it is with a candle.


I will write special words for you and a piece of music can be chosen to play during the ceremony.
