Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and precious metals. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intent by stating a few words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to place the promises of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are recited, after that in some traditions is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this special day.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking cup 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 actually been called the "loving cup". This lovely event shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
