Medieval Handfastings, Blessings & Weddings

Each August Bank Holiday weekend something truly magical happens. Englands Medieval Festival provides the backdrop for the most memorable marriage experience of its kind.

You can have an authentic medieval Handfasting or Blessing or Vow Renewal (Note that a traditional civil ceremony can be arranged for an offsite location, with the celebration at the festival)

Step back in time and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and atmosphere of days gone by. Couples and wedding parties will delight in this unique event and guests of all ages will discover so much to see and do during their time at the festival.

With the sights and sounds of the medieval village, the weekend offers a limited number of couples a special themed experience never to be forgotten.

All festival guests can enjoy acres of parkland, lawns and historic woodlands, or a wander through the authentic medieval village. Jousting takes place in the royal arena and thrilling battle re-enactments all weekend.

Accommodation options vary within the festival grounds and locally in the area. For an authentic medieval experience guests can sleep under the stars in furnished glamping tents with private areas available for groups.

In the evening the full festival entertainment provides plenty of fun with character performances and lively music from popular folk bands. Our optional medieval banquet offers an authentic option to feast and toast the happy couple in the castle. Alternatively, guests can indulge in a delicious peasants hog roast and tankard of mead under the stars. We are happy to tailor private entertainment with anything from traditional medieval flute music and romantic stargazing to performing mummers and magical wizards.

Englands Medieval Festival provides an unforgettable celebration experience in a unique and authentic location.
