Celebrations recognizing Celtic roots and also traditions have long been preferred. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the dress of formal tartan and kilt, wedding celebrations based upon facets of Celtic custom can give lasting memories. Facets of these wedding celebrations can consist of part or all of the following:

Anam Cara - Actually, the Hearts Partner, this custom is an one-of-a-kind ceremony commemorating the development of a classic love now and forever more. This celebration of the elements; to the Celts the 4 aspects Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the foundations on which an effective connection were constructed.

This tradition was adjusted as Christianity moved into the Celtic lands and also continues to be a remarkable way to include loved ones in your ceremony.

Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and also rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, declare their love and purpose by stating a few words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to place 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 vows are recited, after that in some customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking mug 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 called the "loving cup". This gorgeous event conveys the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
