Events honoring Celtic origins and practices have actually long been popular. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the gown of official tartan and kilt, wedding celebrations based upon aspects of Celtic custom can give long-term memories. Aspects of these wedding celebrations can include part or all of the following:

Handfasting - An event going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the availability of rings as well as rare-earth elements. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, declare their love and purpose by stating a couple of words as well as binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this practice we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better area to place the assurances of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their vows are stated, after that in some traditions is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking cup rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This beautiful ceremony conveys the true blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.

Usually the oldest woman participant of the groom's family offers a piece of the family member 's Tartan to the bride-to-be representing she is currently linked right into all the behaviors of the clan.
