A handfasting (binding the hands as a commitment and pre-Christian marriage ceremony) is I think the most beautiful ritual there is. Jumping the broom is a symbolic act that bestows fertility but is also a way to jump into a new life together. Out of the magic circle and into the real world.

Try to keep up with the moon phase when you plan to perform a ritual. Crescent moon is suitable for things you want to increase or attract, ful moon is suitable for celebrating, confirming and to give extra power, and the waning moon is suitable for decreasing magic (healing magic for instance, to make someone better)

Allways take an offering with you when you perform an outdoor ritual. That is to honour the spirits of the land, ancestors and gods. You are entering their land, you are who you are becouse of them and you are performing your ritual in sight of the gods. A pledge to them shows your respect to al the levels of the spirit world.

The woods are the right place for a witches ritual. From ancient times woods are the home and ritual places for witches, they are the hidingplace of all sorts of creatures.
