Handfasting - An event dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the accessibility of rings as well as rare-earth elements.

Oathing Stone -- What better place to place the promises of a life time and 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 tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled 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 ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has been know as the "loving cup".
