Aspects of these wedding celebrations can include part or every one of the following:

Handfasting - An event dating back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the availability of rings and 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 reciting a few words and binding themselves together symbolically with the cordage. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to place the promises of a lifetime and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their promises are recited, after that in some traditions is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this special 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 offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the marriage. From that point on the Quaich has been called the "loving cup". This attractive event conveys the blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
