Events recognizing Celtic roots as well as traditions have long been prominent.

Aspects of these weddings could include part or every one of the following:
Anam Cara - Essentially, the Hearts other Half, this custom is a special ceremony commemorating the production of an ageless love now and forever more. This celebration of the aspects; to the Celts the four aspects Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the foundations on which an effective connection were built.
This practice was adapted as Christianity moved right into the Celtic lands and also remains to be a wonderful way to include family and friends in your event.
Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, state their love and intention by stating a few words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Just what better area to put the guarantees of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their pledges are stated, after that in some traditions is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone could be kept 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 also 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 throughout the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has actually been referred to as the "loving cup". This beautiful event communicates the true blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
