Medieval wedding traders?

Post by Maga22 »

Hi folks. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction here. My daughter is getting married in 18 months time and has decided on a medieval theme for the ceremony and reception. So as the father and the guy stumping up the cash, I need to get my thinking cap on and work out how to cost effectively make this happen. I've been doing a bit of research and found quite a lot of medieval costumes and medieval wedding dresses for sale online, but I am not sure of the quality and I don't think my daughter has the fancy dress style for her wedding dress in mind to be honest. In terms of the guests, they would be expected to source their own costumes, but the bridal and groom parties will obviously need some kind of coordinated dress code, suitable props will be required to decorate the reception and a caterer who specialises in medieval fayre would also be something I may consider if it is affordable. Are there companies here in the UK that specialise in providing a one stop shop style service for this kind of affair? Thoughts anybody?

I haven't heard of anyone doing a total one stop shop set up for this kind of event, though Mark Griffin, of Grffin Historical would be able to pull it all together for you, at a fair price. Otherwise you'd be looking at individual traders/suppliers for each aspect. Four and twenty blackbirds are brilliant at historically accurate, and delicious catering, Jim of Trinity Court pottery for the crocks and cups, The Original Re enactors Market would be a great place to visit to talk to costumiers who could do you quality kit - Jacki of Cloak'd and Daggered, Isabella of Prior Attire, Debbie Lock, The Sempster, and Jo Badger are all fantastic at what they do- you will need to make decisions and orders in good time, to allow fittings and making time, I would also advise going on the Friday of the show as this is the quietest day.

We do many medieval wedding as Lucy kindly says. Or you could try Fantaysia Ltd, based near Rotherham, an excellent organisers who has tons of props and her own caterers etc. A delicious decadent historical trifle. Thick performance jelly topped with lashings of imaginative creamy custard. You may also get a soggy event management sponge finger but it won't cost you hundreds and thousands.
