Handfasting - An event dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the accessibility of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and purpose by stating a couple of words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better location to put the guarantees of a lifetime 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 traditions is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol 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 gorgeous event shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
