Hand-Binding Ceremony

Hand Binding Ceremony


This beautiful couple, Laura and Diane, wanted to perform an old tradition for their wedding ceremony instead of exchanging rings, a Hand-Binding Ceremony. Thanks to these two, I had the privilege of not only learning about, but also performing this ceremony that established the term “tying the knot.”

Laura and Diane chose to use three lovely ribbons for their ceremony which I tied into a figure eight around their clasped right hands. Once tied, I said some words of commitment for the couple, handed each of them an end of the ribbon, and they pulled the ribbons to ‘tie the knot’ on their love!

Laura and Diane will keep this ribbon as a keepsake of their wedding day and always have the memory of tying the knot at Holualoa Beach. I too will remember my first Hand-Binding Ceremony thanks to this couple. Mahalo Laura and Diane!

What Our Couples Say

"Deanna at Kona Wedding Officiant is amazing. My parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and my siblings and I wanted to have a vow renewal ceremony for them on the beach with traditional Hawaiian chants. Everything was absolutely perfect from the beautiful beach location to her soothing voice. Thank You, Deanna for helping my siblings and I, give my parents a day they will remember."
