Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the accessibility 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 stating a couple of words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the promises of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their pledges are recited, then in some practices is tossed right 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.

King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has been called the "loving cup". This gorgeous event shares the blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
