Handfasting - An event going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage before the availability of rings and precious metals. The couple would take a piece of cloth or rope and before their families and friends, state their love and intent by stating a couple of words and also binding themselves with each other symbolically with the cordage. It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to place the guarantees of a life time as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their promises are stated, then in some practices is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those assurances for evermore. Today that stone may be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as 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 marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has been know as the "loving cup".
