Handfasting - An event dating back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the accessibility of rings and precious metals.

It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better area to place the assurances of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their pledges are recited, then in some traditions is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this special day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking cup 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 wedding, From that point on the Quaich has been called the "loving cup". This attractive event shares the blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
