Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the availability of rings and 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 stating a couple of words as well as binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to place the pledges of a lifetime as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are stated, after that in some practices is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking cup rolled into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the wedding. From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This beautiful ceremony communicates the blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
