Bride and groom drink from a shared cup

There is a lovely tradition from several different places where the bride and groom celebrate their union by drinking from a shared cup.
In the Celtic/Irish version, the couple drink three times from the Loving Cup –  to the love they have shared in the past,  to the love they are sharing in this moment, and to the love they will share in all the days to come.

Those with Scottish heritage might want to use a Claddagh cup for this little ritual.

Those with French connections might like to incorporate the ceremonial blending of two wines, symbolising the union of two families.
