Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, declare their love and intent by stating a couple of words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to put the guarantees of a life time as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their vows are stated, then in some practices is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave 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 actually been know as the "loving cup". This stunning ceremony communicates the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
