Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back right to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage prior to the availability of rings as well as rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, proclaim their love and intent by stating a few words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the assurances 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 promises for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the wedding. From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This beautiful event shares the true blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
