Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the accessibility of rings and also rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intention by stating a couple of words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the pledges of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their pledges are stated, then in some customs is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained 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 vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This stunning event shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
