Handfasting

It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Exactly what better place to put the pledges of a life time as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their pledges are recited, after that in some practices is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone might be kept as a remembrance of this special day.
