Handfasting - An event dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a custom of marriage before the availability of rings as well as rare-earth elements.

Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and also drinking vessel rolled right into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a symbol of his love for her during the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup".
