The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their pledges are recited, then in some practices is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those guarantees for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided 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 referred to as the "loving cup".
