Looking for a true fairytale wedding that is memorable and different from all the rest? Have you considered a medieval or themed wedding?
I have been Director of the Medieval Guilds Inc. Re-enactment society and a teacher and performer of medieval history registered with the NSW Dept. Of Education and Training for many years now and have performed numerous historic re-enactments, so I know how to get accuracy and quality into a medieval wedding.
Most modern wedding traditions originated in medieval times and had wonderfully romantic, practical and spiritual significance back then, much of which has since been lost or misunderstood. The bridal gown, the bouquet, maids of honour, the best man, etc, are all medieval in origin. For example, the best man was so called because wedding parties were often attacked by jealous courtiers or bandits seeking the dowry, so the best swordsman the family could hire, served as the bodyguard to the wedding party. He was the best man because he was the best man with a sword.
With my connections with the re-enactment society and local theatre and costume makers, I can also help you with props, costuming, history as well as performers and entertainers.
Need a piper? I work closely with Ray Ellington, Pipe major of the Coffs Coast Pipes and Drums, who is available for weddings by request.
I can assist you in organising in any way you require. I am happy to perform in other themes as well…such as renaissance or fantasy. Where ever your dreams take you.
I have conducted steampunk, musketeer, Victorian and Viking weddings and I am happy find a costume and write a script for any themed wedding.
