Helen & Dai’s Medieval Wedding


My gorgeous friends H P Saucy and Dai got married at St Mawes Castle in Cornwall, late September. The theme was a Merlin/ Game of Thrones/ Medieval affair! I helped Helen with her styling, did her hair and makeup and also made Dai’s doublet! It was my first time making anything medieval and managed to make my own dress and matching bag AND Mr Moo’s Richard the Lionheart outfit too. Here are a few photos of the beautiful day… I know, don’t I look different?!

St. Mawes Castle in Cornwall – The wedding venue!

Our outfits. I made my gown from crushed velvet and stiff silk with a woven pattern.
I made Richard’s ‘chainmail’ cowel, which I knitted, rolled with silver paint and then finished by painting an antique gold line around the rim. The tunic is hand painted crushed velvet.

Game of Thrones inspired wedding outfits. You can just see the doublet I made from heavy duty cotton velvet with hand sewn brass findings and purple velvet ribbon. I also applied embroidered appliques to Helen’s gold and a gold belt with matching arm ribbon.
Dai’s cloak is a 1930’s opera cloak (velvet) with a vintage fox fur.
This is reminiscent of a Merlin character’s cloak.

My stone! Helen’s Ma collected heart shaped stones from Cornwall beaches and then Dai painted them all with people’s names. What a wonderful token of their day!
