Handfasting - An event dating back to antiquity, Handfasting is a tradition of marriage prior to the availability of rings and rare-earth elements.

It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".
Oathing Stone -- What better place to put the assurances 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 vows are recited, then in some customs is thrown 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 - Originally crafted from timber the double handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit as well as drinking mug rolled into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the marriage ceremony. From that point on the Quaich has actually been called the "loving cup". This stunning event conveys the true blessings of Kith and also Kin to the couple.
