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

Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the assurances of a life time and also eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the groom and bride while their pledges are stated, then in some customs is thrown 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 as well as drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland provided 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".
