Events recognizing Celtic origins and also traditions have actually long been preferred. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the dress of official tartan and kilt, wedding events based upon facets of Celtic practice can give lasting memories.

Handfasting - An event going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the accessibility of rings as well as rare-earth elements.

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better place to put the assurances of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their vows are recited, after that in some traditions is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone may 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 gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup".
