Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, proclaim their love and intent by reciting a couple of words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better place to put the promises of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are recited, then in some customs is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking cup rolled right 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 actually been referred to as the "loving cup". This stunning ceremony shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
