Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the availability of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intent by stating a couple of words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to place the promises of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their vows are recited, after that in some customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has been know as the "loving cup". This attractive ceremony shares the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
