Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, declare their love and purpose by reciting a couple of words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to place the assurances of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are stated, then in some practices is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood 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 symbol of his love for her during the marriage. From that point on the Quaich has actually been referred to as the "loving cup". This lovely ceremony conveys the blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
