SCREECH Unity Ceremony

Posted by AAWO on April 10, 2009

Shawn & Peggy’s Wedding
Philips Old Colony House,  South Boston, MA

Unity Ceremonies are not only for a joining together of two individuals but may also depict a merger of families, cultures and traditions. Candles, colored sand, flowers and sometimes a special beverage may be used as symbols depicting this joining.

Our Bride Peggy hails from Newfoundland where the drink of choice is SCREECH, a dark and flavourful rum (you can imagine how it got it’s name) and so it is most appropriate that what is also called “Newfie Holy Water” was included as part of their wedding ceremony!

The Bride drinks... the Groom drinks... and then the JP gets in on it, too!
