Events recognizing Celtic origins and also traditions have long been preferred.

Elements of these weddings could include part or every one of the following:

Handfasting - An event going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and purpose by stating a couple of words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better area to place the pledges of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their pledges are stated, then in some customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled 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".
