Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings and also precious metals. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intention by stating a few words and binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better area to put the pledges 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 into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.
