What is a ketubah?

A ketubah is a work of art that expresses the meaning and emotion of your wedding vows.

"Jason is Jewish and I am Christian, so we mixed a few elements of both religions in the ceremony and this was brilliant. We love having our Ketubah as it is a beautiful reminder of our wonderful day." — Sarah & Jason, Cape Town

Yes! I make ketubahs for all couples and weddings.

Can you have a ketubah? Absolutely! While the ketubah has its roots in Jewish wedding tradition, its beauty is now embraced by couples from all different religions and cultures. I have created ketubahs for all kinds of couples (Jewish, Interfaith, Christian, multicultural, same-sex, and non-religious) and ceremonies (weddings, commitment ceremonies, anniversaries and vow renewals).

I designed my ketubahs specifically to be adaptable to all kinds of modern couples and ceremonies. Instead of relying on religious symbolism, I use my own fine art photography of nature. I also wrote most of the texts myself, using modern and inclusive language. By selecting the texts and options you want, you can create a ketubah that perfectly fits you and your ceremony:
