Events honoring Celtic origins as well as traditions have actually long been prominent. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the outfit of official tartan and kilt, wedding events based upon facets of Celtic tradition can offer lasting memories. Aspects of these wedding celebrations could consist of part or all of the following:
Anam Cara - Essentially, the Hearts Partner, this custom is an one-of-a-kind event commemorating the production of a classic love forever more. This celebration of the components; to the Celts the four elements Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the foundations on which a successful connection were constructed.

Handfasting - An event going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intention by stating a few words and binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better location to put the guarantees of a life time as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their pledges are recited, after that in some practices is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this special day.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has been called the "loving cup". This attractive ceremony conveys the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
Pinning of the Tartan
Pinning of the Tartan - A new bride is formally accepted into the groom's family via this ceremony. Normally the oldest female participant of the groom's family gives a piece of the household 's Tartan to the bride-to-be symbolizing she is currently linked into all the behaviors of the clan.
