Handfasting

Handfasting - An event dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the availability of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and purpose by reciting a couple of words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better location to put the guarantees of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their promises are recited, after that in some customs is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone might 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 as well as drinking vessel rolled 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 know as the "loving cup". This gorgeous event shares the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
