Love is in the air...

We enjoyed a glorious Tudor Handfasting yesterday, between our Alehouse keeper Jack and Rush Weaver, Jennet. Their hands were tied before they jumped together over fire (created by our Alchemist) in a traditional handfasting ceremony. Bread was presented by the Bakehouse in the shape of a man and a woman. The bread was broken and shared between Jack and Jennet, before being handed out to the surrounding crowd. Congratulations Jack and Jennet!
