What is more traditional than a medieval wedding? Long feasts with luxurious walls combined with the villagers cheering for the newly-married couple.
Marriages were often arranged - though love did influence many of them. Many nobles sought only economical benefits from marriage - but that was more of the exception rather than the rule - as the traditional folklore suggests.
Nevertheless, in most occasions, marriages were arranged by the parents usually when the bride and groom were very young (11 or 12 years of age) which led in many cases to an insignificant affection shown by the couple.
Modern Medieval Weddings
Even today, many people marry in castles to remember how it once was. The most common castles for marriage are situated in France as some of them are as luxurious today as they were a thousand years ago.
