Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage before the accessibility of rings as well as rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intention by reciting a few words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to put the guarantees of a lifetime and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are recited, after that in some customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.

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".
