LOVE Lock

Love Locks

Commemerating your love is important.  Wether it be a romantic gesture upon engagement or something you do as part of your wedding ceremony, sharing a "moment" is important.

"A love lock or love padlock is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love.

Typically the sweethearts' names or initials are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love."  (Wikipedia)

 "Since the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide. They are now mostly treated by municipal authorities as litter or vandalism, and there is some cost to their removal. However, there are authorities who embrace them, and who use them as fundraising projects or tourism attractions."  (Wikipedia)

 

Recently,  there has been a new trend and that is adding love locks to your ceremony.

You can add the love lock to a sculpture, a gate, a memory box and many other creative places.   The locking is symbolic and so is the throwing of the key.  You can throw the key, bury the key, or simply hide the key.  Anything that symbolizes "unbreakable love" to you.

We encourage you if you are using a public space to check with the city, the business owner etc...  and ask about adding your love lock.  Even if previously there are several love locks please consider asking permission.    

If wanting a ceremonial love lock consider all the varieties of places and / or things you could add your lock to.  A tree, a time capsule, a commissioned piece of art, a love journal or perhaps even a book with your vows.
