Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the availability of rings and also precious metals. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intention by stating a few words and binding themselves with each other 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 guarantees 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 promises are stated, after that in some practices is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this big day.
