Handfasting - An event going back right to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the accessibility of rings and rare-earth elements.

The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are stated, after that in some customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her throughout the wedding. From that point on the Quaich has been called the "loving cup".
