The Wedding

This weekend just gone was the wedding of my friends Jon and Hannah. Long time members of the Company of Chivalry and medieval fans, it was expected for them to have a medieval wedding......
...and it was such fun!

Here are the happy couple in their wedding finery! Jon is simply dashing and his bride is positively glowing!

We all gathered in our medieval kit to help them celebrate the big day. It rained a lot and we all got very wet and muddy, but it was a wonderful day and night. The rain died away about 1am, so I got some quality 'fire time' by the roaring fire :-)

Part of the day's entertainment included a mummers play, starring our two Lords Hungerford, and Master Caunsfield as George.

The medieval party went with a swing and they even managed to perform the Honour Arch while the company were still standing.......

But what wedding would be complete without children? My little friend LMD Aginoth and her grown friend Master Caunsfield. (I love her making eyes at my dear friend Matt - that girl will go far!).

With thanks to Aginoth, Master Turner and Master Caunsfield whose photo albums I plundered......

I'm glad you had a good time. The weather was awful so I'm glad it held off long enough to have dry moments of fun :)

What fun to have a Wedding in "Costumes of 'the period'....How fun of all of you...lol!
Too bad about all that rain....Does it seem like you are getting more rain these last two years than you used to?? Or am I just not very informed?
But, how special is a ROARING Fire!

Little Miss A. is a cutie flirt, isn't she?

I imagine that was a fun wedding to attend. I just dropped by your blog because I saw your comment on another person's comments for Sky Watch. Have a happy day!

Oh I remember the days of medieval reenactment. Used to do that so long ago. That wedding must have been a blast! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Yes, Weddings and children. As a tot I had the gall to get a smooch from the bride if I found her attractive! Hey? Who's going to say "No" to a 6 year-old kid, right? This looks like lots of fun with lots of love, CQ!!!!
