Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the accessibility of rings and precious metals. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intent by stating a few words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the pledges of a lifetime as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their promises are recited, after that in some traditions is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This lovely ceremony shares the blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
