Handfasting

The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are recited, after that in some traditions is tossed right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this big day.

The Quaich - Initially crafted from wood the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking cup rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the wedding, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup".
