Events recognizing Celtic origins and also traditions have actually long been preferred.

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the availability of rings and also precious metals. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, declare their love and intent by reciting a couple of 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 couple while their pledges are stated, after that in some traditions is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking cup rolled right into one.
