Handfasting

Congratulations Pip and Francis!

A beautiful Handfasting took place at Kentwell this afternoon, between Pip Cabbage the Mummer and Francis (Fanny) Green of the Stillroom. They broke bread and counted the crumbs that fell into an apron, foretelling how many children they will have.

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.
