IN MODERN TIMES IT IS BECOMING MORE COMMON PLACE FOR COUPLES TO CELEBRATE THEIR ENGAGEMENT TO EACH OTHER BY HAVING A WONDERFUL, BESPOKE CEREMONY AT THEIR ENGAGEMENT PARTY. IT IS A PERFECT WAY TO INCLUDE FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN THE ANNOUNCEMENT.
Jon can include one or a few of the elements that are used in a Wedding Ceremony, such as a Sand Ceremony, Wine Ceremony or even a part of the Handfasting Ceremony. This would be particularly apt because this is an old Pagan custom, dating back to the time of the ancient Celts.
A Handfasting was originally more like an engagement period, where two people would declare a binding union between themselves for a year and a day.
Another lovely element that involves all the guests and they would love, is to set out a beautiful glass bottle and create a station with pens and slips of paper where guests can write a note to the couple to be opened on after the wedding, or on their anniversary.
This would be very powerful and is the kind of thing that would also make for an excellent activity on the big day itself. It is a chance for people to express how happy they are for the couple and how much they love them! Plus, the bottle will become a beautiful, commemorative and lasting keepsake.
Jon will speak to you both to get an understanding of your love story and incorporate this into your ceremony and ensure that it is personal, unique and truly memorable for you, your family and your friends.
“You share a love, that’s true, you’re committed to one another, and, one day, will say “I do” – Jon Bratton

Kind Words About Eternal Ceremonies
“I secured “Eternal Ceremonies” and Jon’s assistance in writing and delivering a speech for the celebration of my half century birthday.
I simply was not prepared for the level of thoughtful support in the preparation of the speech itself. Jon, ever sensitive to the complete cross section of guest types, delivered what I can only describe as a speech, truly appropriate to all levels. Comedic, articulate and thoughtful words, that had the guests encapsulated in its delivery.
To say that I was impressed is a massive understatement and I am overwhelmed that I chose this man to celebrate my life with my friends and family.
“Thank you Jon……You will be my choice at my 60th !!”.
