Handfasting

Handfasting - An event going back to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the availability of rings and precious metals. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intent by stating a couple of words and binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better area to place the promises of a lifetime and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are stated, then in some customs is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave 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 actually been referred to as the "loving cup". This lovely event shares the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
