Sulgrave Manor - Medieval Tudor Wedding - Jousting Tournament with The Cavalry of Heroes - Thumbs down for the Dark Knight

Nothing as Sweet as a Beautiful Medieval Wedding Day at Sulgrave Manor

Love was in the air last weekend at dreamy Sulgrave Manor.  It was like being in a fairy-tale all weekend, as two Knights on horseback jousted in celebration of a Wedding Day, in this fabulously themed event.  Visitors were officially welcomed to the event by the Mayor with his Knights as his guards of honour.  There was so much going on and so well thought out that the day was just beautiful.

The Knights performed under the trees in the romantic back garden and met with lots of adoring fans, including many dressed up as Knights and Princesses themselves.  It was our Golden Knight who jousted against Sir Edwin (the Groom) in this joyful show before the Dark Knight made his appearance just as the skies darkened.

But there was no rain on this wedding day (except The Dark Knight getting his just desserts!) just glorious sunshine and lots of happy faces.

I’m still smiling over such a beautiful day.  Thank you to the lovely organisers who made us feel so at home, to the local fish and chip shop for such a splendid meal and the medieval re-enactors who bought the venue alive.  And a big congratulations also to the couple who got married at the pub down the road the night before!  Big smiles all round.

Medieval Weddings – Your own Knights in Shining Armour on Horseback

Your very own Knights in Shining Armour on Horseback for your big day.

We have been very fortunate through the years to provide many a Knight on Horseback for many a wedding.  Perfect for medieval themed weddings as well as more modern weddings and family orientated weddings, our gorgeous brides have enjoyed arriving in style on horseback escorted by Knights as a spectacular arrival and guests have been entertained with stunning, action-packed Jousting Tournaments (the groomsmen and bridesmaids even having to do forfeits if their Champions loose).  From Bolton Castle, to Ripon and down to Hampton Court Castle and the Devon Lakes, we travel nationally and enjoy every moment of making your big day even more magical and making you feel like the most important person in the world.

Options Include:

Arriving on horseback escorted by Knights.  Either parading through the streets while passers by lavish you with attention or simply keeping it secret and amazing your guests when you make your grand entrance.

Knights on Horseback for Meet and Greet.  When guests first arrive they are greeted by Knights in Shining Armour on Horseback who are available for photographs and can perform choreographed displays including sword fights.

Full Medieval Entertainment, including Jousting Tournaments with two, four or six horses, a medieval court, sword fights and meet and greet.  For fully themed medieval weddings and also for those looking for entertainment during venue changeovers (from dining to dancefloor), our displays can last 20 to 45 minutes, with meet and greet continuing beyond that.

Why we love Wedding Fayres

Tis the season of wedding fayres and we love this time of year!  Getting to talk to excited Brides and Grooms planning their big day and attending some of the most beautiful wedding venues.

Munstone House Wedding Fayre

For Brides and Grooms it’s an excellent chance to meet lots of local suppliers in one place, getting ideas and inspiration, getting great discounts and even discovering great products and services that you hadn’t even considered.  It is also a great opportunity to meet suppliers face-to-face who will be responsible for products or services that you will be using on your big day.  For wedding fayres at a particular venue, it’s often a chance to see how that venue will be decorated on a wedding day and can give you an idea of space and what the venue will feel like full of people.

For exhibitors, well organised and well marketed wedding fayres can provide invaluable opportunities to meet brides and grooms and present them with your products and services.  Not only brides and grooms but it is also an opportunity to meet other wedding suppliers and build professional relationships.

For us here at The Cavalry of Heroes, we will always love the opportunity to speak with brides and grooms directly at a Wedding Fayre and answer any questions they may have about having horses and carriages at their wedding.  We always put a lot of care and attention into each Wedding Fayre and we have always had a positive outcome from every Fayre we have attended.  For brides, grooms and exhibitors alike, putting in the effort at these Fayres can be a really positive experience for all.

Look forward to seeing you at a Wedding Fayre soon!

Special thanks to Diva Wedding Fayres, Burgoynes and Elegant Additions who have all put on some stunning and very worthwhile Wedding Fayres which we have had the privilege of attending.

The evening was full of surprises and fun at the Fair, with a big thank you going to Wendy Head who worked so hard to put on such a fantastic evening.

Unfortunately Marc wasn’t able to join us for the evening as he was working, so Rob very kindly stepped in to help and played the part of Circus Master very well.  Jess also kindly helped us by looking after Asgard for the evening while we were taking part in the awards.

Asgard enjoyed his time, as always,and was as good as gold.  He was even enchanted by the wonderful fire juggler, wanting to get as close as he could to the action.

Latest Photoshoot – Gemma Williams Photography

We were delighted and very privileged to be asked to work with Gemma Williams   (www.gemmawilliamsphotography.co.uk) on her most recent photoshoot.

Curioso Maximus White Andalusian Horse wedding photoshoot

Curisoso Maximus looked as beautiful as ever and took his best friend Asgard along with him to enjoy the scenery.

Jen (www.jennifersdressingtable.co.uk) worked her magic on the model’s hair and make-up, and the custom made dress and lovely flowers (www.thegreatbritishflorist.co.uk) looked marvellous.

The whole shoot told a story and was brilliantly captured by Gemma.  A wonderful day and some stunning images:

All our horses are available to hire for photoshoots, as well as being excellent horseback riding teachers.  Take a look at our website for more information.
