Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and precious metals. 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 together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom 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 promises are stated, after that in some practices is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also 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 during the marriage ceremony. From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This gorgeous event conveys the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
