Handfasting - A ceremony going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings and also precious metals.

It is from this tradition we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the promises of a life time as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their promises are stated, after that in some customs is tossed 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 - Initially crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her throughout the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has been called the "loving cup". This stunning ceremony communicates the true blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
