Events recognizing Celtic roots and also practices have actually long been preferred. From the stirring cry of the bag pipe to the outfit of official tartan and kilt, wedding celebrations based upon facets of Celtic practice can offer enduring memories. Facets of these weddings can consist of part or all of the following:
Anam Cara - Essentially, the Hearts Partner, this practice is a special ceremony commemorating the creation of an ageless love now and forever more.

Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings as well as precious metals. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, proclaim their love and purpose by stating a few words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage.

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to put the assurances of a lifetime as well as 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 customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained 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 vessel 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 ceremony. From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This gorgeous event shares the blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
Pinning of the Tartan
Pinning of the Tartan - A bride is formally accepted right into the groom's family via this event. Typically the oldest woman member of the groom's family gives a swatch of the family member 's Tartan to the new bride symbolizing she is currently linked right into all the behaviors of the clan.
