Celebrations recognizing Celtic origins as well as practices have actually long been prominent. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the dress of official tartan and kilt, wedding events based on facets of Celtic practice can provide long lasting memories.

This custom was adapted as Christianity moved into the Celtic lands and also continues to be a fantastic way to include loved ones in your ceremony.

Handfasting

Handfasting - An event dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the availability of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and purpose by stating a few words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to put the guarantees 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, after that in some practices is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage ceremony. From that point on the Quaich has actually been referred to as the "loving cup". This stunning ceremony conveys the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
