Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the availability of rings and also rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, declare their love and intent by reciting a couple of words as well as binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to put the assurances of a life time and also 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 practices is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland offered 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 referred to as the "loving cup". This attractive event shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
