Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings as well as precious metals.

It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place 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 bride and groom while their promises are stated, then in some traditions is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this big day.
