Handfasting - An event dating back right to classical times, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings as well as rare-earth elements.

It is from this custom we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better location to place the guarantees of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their pledges are stated, then in some customs is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has been referred to as the "loving cup". This attractive ceremony communicates the true blessings of Kith as well as Kin to the couple.
