Events recognizing Celtic origins and also traditions have actually long been preferred. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the gown of formal tartan and kilt, wedding events based upon elements of Celtic practice can give long-term memories. Aspects of these wedding events could consist of part or all of the following:
Anam Cara - Actually, the Hearts other Half, this tradition is a special ceremony commemorating the development of a classic love forever more. This celebration of the aspects; to the Celts the four components Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the foundations on which an effective relationship were constructed.

Handfasting - An event going back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage before the accessibility of rings and also rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, declare their love and intent by stating a few 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 -- Just what better location to put the promises of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their promises are recited, then in some traditions is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided 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 know as the "loving cup". This stunning ceremony shares the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
