Celebrations honoring Celtic origins and also traditions have actually long been preferred. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the outfit of official tartan and kilt, wedding events based upon aspects of Celtic practice can supply enduring memories. Aspects of these wedding celebrations could consist of part or all of the following:
Anam Cara - Essentially, the Hearts Partner, this practice is a special event commemorating the production of a classic love now and forever more.

This custom was adapted as Christianity relocated right into the Celtic lands and also remains to be a wonderful way to include friends and family in your event.
Handfasting - An event dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intention by stating a couple of words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this tradition we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better place to place the promises of a lifetime and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their promises are stated, then in some traditions is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has been know as the "loving cup". This lovely event shares the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
