Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings as well as rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, declare their love and intention by reciting a couple of words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to put the assurances of a lifetime as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their promises are recited, after that in some practices is tossed 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 twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking mug rolled into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the marriage ceremony. From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This beautiful ceremony conveys the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
