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 The Cavalry of Heroes?

With years of experience being professional horse stunt and trick riders, our Knights are here to make your day as enjoyable as possible.  Our horses are all trained performance horses, and our admin support ensure that venues are suitable and that everything runs smoothly from when you first enquire to the end of your big day.

Working with horses is our profession but also our life.  We are fully insured and we love our horses so do everything we can to make sure that they are looked after and love their work through out the year.  This means that they shine on the day and allow you to shine along with them.Medieval Knights at Wedding from The Cavalry of Heroes

Marie Antoinette Bridal Shoot

We are very privileged to have been invited to take part in Ellis’s (Aisle Hire It) Marie Antoinette Bridal photo-shoot recently.  The images testify to the creative and artistic brilliance of this lady, as it was a stunning set-up.  Bride Magazine thought so as well and wrote up an excellent piece on the shoot where Ellis talks in detail about the theme, colours and how it was all achieved.  We’ve put some sneak peaks of the pictures below, but recommend that you pop over to Aisle Hire It‘s page for more details and for a full list of all the contributors.

PS.  In case you didn’t recognise him, it’s our beloved Asgard in the pictures, with his model for the day, sporting one of our distinguished military uniforms.

What an amazing weekend; wonderfully organised and superbly entertaining!  The entire team had so much fun celebrating the 600 year anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and the horses marvelled in all the attention!

There were horse and carriage rides around town in the morning alongside medieval tours by Hay History Group, a fantastic turn out by The Freemen of Gwent, as well as calligraphy and workshops to decorate swords and shields.

In the afternoon our Knights turned up to sword fight in and around the castle, followed by performances from the Morris Dancers and The Village Quire.  Culminating in a superb performance by the Hay Theatre Company of Shakespeare’s Henry V with the audience processing through town as either the English or the French ready to fight their final battle in front of the castle.

We met many a princess and brave knight willing to fight on the day and all of this in the fantastic grounds of Hay Castle.

In the evening Professor Anne Curry gave an illustrated talk on the Battle of Agincourt to an engaged audience.

At the end of it all Guinness, Asgard, Harry and Apollo all took a well-deserved roll in the fields before dinner and a good night’s sleep.
