Handfasting - A ceremony dating back to classical times, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and precious metals.

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to put the guarantees of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their pledges are stated, then in some customs is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking cup rolled into one. King James of Scotland offered his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup".
