The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their families and friends, declare their love and intention by reciting a few words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better area to put the guarantees of a lifetime as well as 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 customs is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the marriage ceremony. From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This gorgeous event conveys the blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
