Celebrations honoring Celtic roots and also customs have actually long been popular.

Elements of these wedding celebrations could consist of part or all the following:
Anam Cara - Essentially, the Hearts Partner, this practice is a unique event commemorating the creation of a classic love now and forever more.

Handfasting - An event dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage before the accessibility of rings as well as rare-earth elements.

Oathing Stone -- Just what better area to put the guarantees of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their pledges are recited, after that in some practices is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also 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 during the wedding. From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This gorgeous event shares the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
