Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage before the availability of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intent by stating a couple of words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to place the assurances of a lifetime as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their vows are stated, after that in some customs is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.

King James of Scotland provided 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 been referred to as the "loving cup". This attractive event shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
