Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage prior to the availability of rings as well as rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, declare their love and intention by stating a few words and binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to put the pledges of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their pledges are recited, after that in some traditions is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has been called the "loving cup". This beautiful event shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
