Aspects of these wedding events can include part or all of the following:

Handfasting - A ceremony going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and also precious metals. The couple would take an item of cloth or rope and before their friends and families, declare their love and intention by reciting a couple of words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Just what better location to place the promises 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 pledges are stated, after that in some traditions is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has actually been know as the "loving cup". This lovely ceremony conveys the true blessings of Kith and Kin to the couple.
