Events honoring Celtic roots and also customs have actually long been popular.

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, state their love and intent by reciting a couple of words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better place to place the assurances of a life time as well as 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 traditions is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has actually been referred to as the "loving cup". This gorgeous ceremony communicates the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
