Handfasting - A ceremony dating back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the accessibility 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 intention by reciting a couple of words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to place the pledges of a lifetime and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their vows are stated, then in some traditions is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This lovely event conveys the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
