BALINESE BLESSING CEREMONY
A Balinese Blessing Ceremony is a non legal ceremony that includes a very spiritual element. The ceremony is performed by a Balinese Mangku (priest) and is enjoyed by couples who wish to experience traditional Balinese customs and culture. The blessing ceremony is very popular with couples who seek an alternative way of declaring their love and commitment to one another. It involves symbolic gestures between the couple while offerings are made to the Hindu gods.
The vow renewal ceremony is the perfect opportunity for people who are already legally married to re-declare their love and continuing commitment to one another. It is an adaptable ceremony as it is non legal and can contain a religious or non religious element depending on the couple’s wishes. It can be performed by the relevant representative of your religion or by an officiate. You have the option of choosing one of our standard ceremony texts or personalize your ceremony by writing your own vows. You may even wish to use a combination of the two.
