Events recognizing Celtic roots and also customs have actually long been preferred. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the outfit of official tartan and kilt, weddings based upon facets of Celtic practice can supply enduring memories. Facets of these weddings could consist of part or every one of the following:

This event of the elements; to the Celts the 4 aspects Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the structures on which a successful relationship were built.

Handfasting - An event going back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage before the availability of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intent by stating a couple of words and binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better location to place the pledges of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their pledges are stated, after that in some practices is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking mug rolled into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has actually been know as the "loving cup". This stunning ceremony communicates the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
