The Unity Heart is a beautiful symbol assembled in the wedding ceremony, illustrating how two hearts destined for each other become one. It is a lasting reminder that will be placed in the couple’s home reminding them of how two hearts entrusted themselves to each other and now they beat as one. The beauty about adding the Unity Heart continues as a symbol in your home long after the ceremony. Unlike unity candles and unity sand, which burnout or are eventually thrown away.
The Unity Heart comes with a Christian faith based script, however if you choose to have a civil ceremony, a nonreligious Unity Heart ceremony can be adapted.
“From this day forward, you will be to each other the joy and the comfort the other one needs. You will be the listening heart to each other’s deepest thoughts and most fragile feelings. You will be the inspiration for each other’s most beautiful dreams. You will be each other’s refuge of sheltering love at the end of every day. From this day forward, you will be two halves of one whole soul.”
How does the Unity Heart work?
(Your officiant hands outside of the heart to the groom) The outside of the Unity Heart signifies the groom; bold, strong, and protector of the family. (groom places outside heart into the base) Yet when we look at the groom’s heart, although strong on the outside, the center is empty and void, symbolizing that he is incomplete without his bride.
(Your officiant hands inside of the heart to bride) The center of the Unity Heart signifies the bride; beautiful, creative and delicate (bride place her heart into the outer heart) When she places her heart inside his they entrust their hearts to each other but at the same time they fulfill and complete each other, making two hearts beat as one.
However if the heart is left as it is, any challenge in life the Unity Heart will fall apart, so we now secure and seal them in the power and the beauty of love (Officiant to insert locking piece) and from this time on they shall beat as one heart. What love has brought together, let no one separate.
