Events honoring Celtic roots and customs have actually long been prominent.

Handfasting - An event dating back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the availability of rings and precious metals. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, state their love and purpose by reciting a few words as well as binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Just what better location to place the guarantees of a lifetime and also 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 right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking cup rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her throughout the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This gorgeous ceremony shares the blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
