Handfasting

Handfasting - An event dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and also rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, state their love and purpose by stating a couple of words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better location to put the promises of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their promises are recited, after that in some practices is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking cup rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her throughout the marriage ceremony. From that point on the Quaich has been know as the "loving cup". This lovely ceremony communicates the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
