Events recognizing Celtic roots and also practices have actually long been popular.

Elements of these wedding celebrations can include part or all the following:

Handfasting - An event going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the accessibility of rings as well as rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, proclaim their love and purpose by stating a couple of words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better place to place the pledges of a life time as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their vows are stated, after that in some customs is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug 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 marriage, From that point on the Quaich has actually been know as the "loving cup". This lovely event communicates the blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
