Robin Dutt married Habby in a medieval wedding at "The Sheriff's lodge", near Nottingham Castle. The night before, the wedding was celebrated at the aptly named Robin Hood Inn in Edwinstowe.
Robin wore his army uniform for the ceremony, then changed into his Robin Hood outfit (which he owns, bow and all). Everybody was in fancy dress.
Habby is French so the French guests provided the "Norman" flavour., at least one of them being married to a Norman!
Robin planned everything to fit into the theme. The cake was in the form of Nottingham Castle. The guests' tables were all named after a character in the Robin Hood story.
At 1415 it was "let battle commence!" (i.e. the banquet). 1415 was chosen as the time to eat because 1415 was the year of the Battle of Agincourt, when the nickname of The Sherwood Foresters was used for the Nottingham archers.
The wedding night was spent in "The Forest Lodge", right opposite St. Mary's Church, Edwinstowe, where Robin Hood wed Maid Marian. The following morning Robin took the French guests on an (enforced!) pilgrimage to the Major Oak tree, where he will have his ashes scattered after cremation.
