Handfasting - A ceremony dating back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings and also rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intent by reciting a few words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to place the promises of a lifetime and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their promises are stated, then in some customs is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking cup rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her throughout the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has actually been referred to as the "loving cup". This stunning event communicates the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
