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

Oathing Stone -- What better location to put the assurances of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their promises are stated, then in some customs is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.

The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided 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".
