In recent years the wedding tradition of "broom jumping" has become more and more popular, but it has actually been around for centuries and over the 15+ years I have been making and selling brooms I have come across many different explanations for the act of "jumping the broom", mostly from the Pagan based religious folks and the African American community. According to Wikipedia:
“ Jumping the broom is a phrase and custom relating to wedding ceremonies in different cultural traditions, found in "many diverse cultures, those of Africa − Europe including Scotland, Hungary and Gypsy culture", all of which "include brooms at wedding rituals."  It is particularly associated with the Romani gypsy people of the United Kingdom, especially those in Wales. There is "evidence showing the wedding custom was practiced by gypsies(sic) in England, Scotland" as well as by African Americans and other groups. ”
The ritual of "broom jumping" is exactly as it sounds. Toward the end of the wedding ritual couples hold hands and jump over the broom, either together or one at a time and although the symbolism may be different, all couples arrive at the other side of the broom being married.We have several brooms that work great for these ceremonies, it’s totally up to you to choose what broom fits best. For the Neopagan we offer the traditional ceremonial besom aka the witch’s broom, is about 56 inches long and is sewn in the round “old world” style, it comes in a variety of colors: Natural, Rust, Black or a Mixture of all 3 colors.
