Events honoring Celtic roots and customs have actually long been prominent. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the gown of official tartan and kilt, wedding celebrations based upon aspects of Celtic custom can give long-term memories. Aspects of these wedding events can consist of part or all of the following:
Anam Cara - Actually, the Hearts other Half, this custom is a unique ceremony commemorating the creation of a classic love forever more. This event of the elements; to the Celts the four components Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the structures on which an effective connection were built.

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the accessibility of rings as well as rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, declare their love and purpose by stating a few words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to place the promises of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their promises are stated, then in some traditions 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 big day.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking mug 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, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This attractive ceremony communicates the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
