Handfasting - An event going back right to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the availability of rings and precious metals.

It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to put the pledges 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 customs is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this special 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 offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup".
