Medival wedding

My sister has just decided that she would like a medival theme to her wedding. Venue possible Bolsover Castle or Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire. Has anyone else had a theme to their wedding?:\?

    Hi honey,



    Have you ever spoken to Grangebex ? Her wedding was a medieval princess/dr who wedding and it was fab. She made her own dress, suits, flowergirls dresses etc. Her is the link to her wedding report for you to take a look at.

    There's a company called medieval scribe (google it) who do wedding stationery that looks like medieval books, you could try that?
  • Does yopur sister want to do a proper medieval wedding or a hollywood inspired medieval wedding? There are a couple of re-enactors markets happening soon - there is one next weekend http://www.livinghistoryfairs.com and then another one at the end of March http://www.reenactorsmarket.co.uk/

    There will be lots of vendors here that sell fabrics, patterns and clothes, as well as people who will do bespoke clothing. They may also be a good place for inspiration.

    Authentic medieval gowns are really quite flattering for all figures, especially late 14thC and 15thC fashions. They are also made using a very simple patterns. I am a hopeless sewer but have knocked out a couple of gowns in my time.

    I can send links to a few costumers if you or your sister are interested.

    The bride is my bridesmaid and the groom is my future uncle-in-law (it was actually at this wedding that my now H2B tried it on with me for the first time - he didn't get anywhere). Please note that 95% of the article is rubbish, the Daily Mail not being known for checking their sources. She is quite clearly not wearing 270 feet of anything and the wedding cost nowhere near £30,000 (less than a third of that I think). The joust and battle the day after weren't part of the wedding but part of a re-enactment event that was taking place at the same time. It was an amazing wedding . The food was delicious and all of the guests got involved. It was really good fun.
