Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the availability of rings and also precious metals. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, declare their love and intent by stating a few words and 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 place to put the promises of a lifetime as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are stated, after that in some practices is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking cup rolled right 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 beautiful ceremony shares the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
