Julie & Shaun’s Medieval Wedding – Kenilworth Castle

Julie & Shaun tied the knot literally with a hand-fastening ceremony at atmospheric Kenilworth Castle. Everyone was in medieval costume and there were some great characters.

 In keeping with tradition the dastardly local lord claimed his right to the bride but was challenged and defeated by a gallant knight in armour.

A candlelit medieval banquet was held in the nearby church hall, the low light testing my camera to the limit. Entertainment included mock trials with defendents identified by the groom held in stocks. The poor wretches included the executioner (for having a floppy chopper), the bowman (worrying sheep) and a witch (she turned up late). Fortunately all were found not guilty and so escaped dreadfull punishments although the executioner did spend some time in the naughty corner.
