Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the accessibility of rings and precious metals. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and purpose by stating a few words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better location to put the pledges of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their vows are stated, after that in some traditions is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those promises 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 as well as drinking vessel 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 ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This beautiful ceremony communicates the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
