Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the availability of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intention by reciting a few words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just 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 bride and groom while their pledges are stated, then in some traditions is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.

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