Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage before the accessibility of rings and rare-earth elements. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, proclaim their love and intent by stating a few words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better area to put the assurances of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their pledges are recited, after that in some practices is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone could be kept 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 also drinking cup rolled right 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 been referred to as the "loving cup".
