Lord Einar's & Lady Sigyn's Handfasting
(13th October 2012)
Family and friends of Lord Einar and Lady Sigyn's along with a huge Twin River Guard contingent made their way to the Hampton Arms to witness the renewal of their Handfasting vows made
some 10 years hence.
The day began with the setup of a simple campsite including a refreshments marquee, and the usual combat and archery areas. As the day progressed numbers swelled until a respectable group
Guided by the sound of the Guards Minstrel’s Lady Sigyn made her way to the Marquee led by her two very enthusiastic flowers girls to where Lord Einar waited with Thane Esa who performed
the handfasting ceremony.
As always the venue made an excellent backdrop for the ceremony where our hosts, Brian and Judy put on a fine selection of nibbles to see us through the day and give us something to wash
down with ale and such refreshments.
Drinks, nibbles and plenty of meat were consumed by celebrants well into the night, or early hours of the morning as it turned out. While the weather for the weekend was particularly great
Lord Einar was on fire but that is another story…
