Handfasting

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.

It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

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.

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.
