Events honoring Celtic roots as well as practices have actually long been prominent. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the gown of official tartan and kilt, wedding events based on aspects of Celtic tradition can supply long lasting memories. Aspects of these weddings could consist of part or all the following:
Anam Cara - Essentially, the Hearts Partner, this custom is a unique event celebrating the production of a classic love now and forever more. This celebration of the aspects; to the Celts the four aspects Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the foundations on which an effective connection were developed.

Handfasting - A ceremony going back to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the availability of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, declare their love and intention by reciting a few words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better place to put the pledges of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their pledges are recited, then in some customs is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this special day.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This gorgeous event conveys the true blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
