Medieval Moods


If you’re looking for inspiration for music to set the mood at your medieval themed wedding, then I can’t recommend the Mediaeval Baebes enough. Their music is really enchanting. Their lyrics are inspired by medieval texts and played on classical instruments.

I was lucky enough to see them on a couple of occasions at the Joust Festival at Berkeley Castle and they were very compelling to watch and hear.


Speaking of Berkeley Castle, it’s a stunning venue in Gloucestershire and perfect for a medieval wedding with it’s amazing feasting hall and beautiful grounds.



The castle is exclusively yours for your special day and you can feel like royalty for a day and dine in the great hall, where real fires can be lit in the winter to have that added romantic ambiance.




Nine Ladies Design



Nine Ladies Design produce absolutely stunning wedding and handfasting gowns inspired by medieval times, Arthurian legend and the stunning Pre-Raphaelite painter, J W Waterhouse.



Such sumptuous colours, and just look at the gorgeous sheen of the fabrics.

The studio is based on the edge of the picturesque and no doubt, inspirational, Peak District. and the Nine Ladies stone circle. All their designs and fabrics can be viewed by appointment.
