Ceremony day 2

My friend Lykeia has posted some incredible photos from her two-day wedding ceremony to Apollon. You can see the nearly life-sized statue of her Beloved that she sculpted, as well as the Marriage cord I made for Them. She is an amazing artist, and she crafted this very important ceremony into a work of art in its own right, which definitely comes through in these photos she has so generously shared on her blog. Go check out this post as well as her post on Day 1 of the ceremony; it’s so rare to be allowed a peak inside this type of ritual. Even though (or perhaps because?) I am a god-wife myself, I find it endlessly fascinating to see the ways in which others celebrate their relationships.

Beloved in Light

Today was the main day for the ceremony. Unfortunately whereas it had been sunny for the last week, today the clouds moved in. There is an expectation of rain this week. So it was a bit overcast, but that didn’t dampen my spirits for this main ceremony. I have been waiting for quite some time for this day. And so I took my time getting ready as I adorned myself. Again I am not going to give details for this ceremony, but am sharing some of photos from my memories of it.

At the start of the ceremony I went first to Aphrodite’s shrine. There I sacrificed the offering of incense and libated to her.

I then proceeded to Apollon’s shrine for the main portion of the ritual.
