Charlotte Wedding Photographers and Cinematographers, series on Ancient Wedding Traditions and Fun Wedding Facts! Part 1

This week from Kenneth Light Studios, Wedding Photographers, and Sherri Claypoole Films, Wedding Videographers it’s Ancient Roman Traditions. Did you know that…

Ancient Romans believed that a nerve ran from the third finger on the left hand directly to the heart. The ring finger tradition continues to this day! The engagement ring was also known as the “truth” ring.

After the ceremony, instead of the rice we use today, nuts were thrown to shower the couple. Ouch…

An extinguished torch was thrown into the crowd by the bride as she entered her new home at the end of the wedding day. The 14th Century French are given credit for replacing the traditional torch with the flower bouquet we know today.

Keep watching, next week it’s Italian!
