Handfasting - A ceremony going back to classical times, Handfasting is a custom of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and rare-earth elements.

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to place the pledges of a lifetime as well as eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the couple while their vows are recited, after that in some customs is thrown right into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone might 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 drinking vessel rolled into one. King James of Scotland gave his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her throughout the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup".
