Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and also precious metals. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intention by reciting a couple of words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the pledges 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 pledges are recited, then in some practices is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking cup rolled right into one. King James of Scotland offered 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 beautiful event communicates the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
