An important part of a medieval wedding or any celebration is the food! Whilst food is one of the areas we have compromised on we've tried to keep the idea of free flowing food.
A medieval custom is that when a man from another village marries a woman he should buy all the men from her village a round of drinks to "compensate" them from losing a potential wife. Mark and I aren't quite from different villages, although we're marrying in one but we thought this was an easy one to fit in.
At the hotel there will be a light lunch with tea and coffee.
Following the service at The Lord Leycester Hospital we are having a drinks reception whilst photos are taken there.
We then move on to Warwick Castle where there will be another drinks reception and canapes.
After the drinks reception we move into the Undercroft for our four course banquet - starter, main, desert, cake - and drinks (beer, wine and soft drinks - sodas and squash for the children) will be free and unlimited. To add to the feasting there will be fruit, sweets, fudge and hot drinks following the meal.
When we return to the hotel there will be more refreshments, this is the first time that guests will need to use money as the bar will be open until 1am.
If you wish to take advantage of all the free drink, we've booked the hotel B&B for exclusive use. Warwick Castle will welcome back our guests so if you wish to stay over, you could always make a weekend of it and have a proper visit to the castle on the Sunday.
