Celebrations recognizing Celtic roots as well as traditions have long been preferred. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the dress of formal tartan and kilt, weddings based upon facets of Celtic tradition can supply long-term memories. Facets of these weddings can consist of part or every one of the following:

Anam Cara - Literally, the Hearts Partner, this custom is a unique ceremony commemorating the creation of a classic love now and forever more. This celebration of the components; to the Celts the 4 elements Earth, Fire, Water and Air were the foundations on which a successful partnership were built.

This practice was adjusted as Christianity relocated into the Celtic lands and also continues to be a wonderful means to include family and friends in your event.

Handfasting

Handfasting - An event dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the availability of rings and also precious metals. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, state their love and intention by reciting a few words and binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- What better location to place the promises of a lifetime as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their pledges are recited, then in some practices is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

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