Handfasting

Handfasting - An event dating back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the accessibility of rings and also precious metals.

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

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to put the pledges of a lifetime and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their pledges are stated, after that in some customs is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this special day.
