Handfasting

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

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to put the promises of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their pledges are stated, then in some customs is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking mug rolled right into one. 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 actually been called the "loving cup". This stunning ceremony conveys the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
