Plymouth couple married in ancient Celtic rite with Medieval traditions
Happy couple Jez Menis and Kate Deler literally tied the knot when they married in a Medieval-themed wedding this weekend.
Against a beautiful backdrop at Terawhiti Farm at Thurlestone, near Kingsbridge, the couple, who come from Plymouth, undertook a special "hand-fasting" ceremony, which involves the binding of the bride and bridegroom's hand with a cord or ribbon.
The ancient Celtic rite wasn't the only unusual part of the day where a wedding breakfast and disco was replaced by feasting, storytelling and even a small sword-fighting tournament.
Two years ago Mr Menis, who makes armour and weapons for historical re-enactors, famously abseiled 220ft down Canonteign Falls in the Teign Valley, near Exeter, in a full suit of armour that he had made himself, to raise money for charity.
