Weddings – Handfasting

Handfasting at St Nectan’s Glen

The term “handfasting” or “hand-fasting” is used to “formally promise, to make a contract” especially in the context of marriage and is the ancient nature-related marriage ceremony with a spiritual tradition, quickly becoming the choice amongst modern couples; it involves a couple’s hands being placed together and bound by a ribbon or cord symbolising and confirming their union of love, acceptance and commitment to each other.

St Nectan’s Glen, with its exquisite naturally formed waterfalls, creates a beautiful haven of peace and tranquillity in the hidden Cornish valley and therefore provides the ideal setting for your celebration.

Our team will make sure that every little detail is taken care of, so that you can relax and enjoy every moment of your special day.

You will find our staff very helpful, friendly and flexible and they will always put you first. If you have a particular idea that you would like to share, we will do our very best to make your special day as memorable and personal as possible.
