Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, state their love and intention by stating a few words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the pledges of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their pledges are stated, then in some customs is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking cup rolled into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This beautiful ceremony shares the true blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
