Caton Event's Specialty! Renaissance Weddings


Caton Events will help you design your ceremony at your choice of location. Services include an experienced wedding planner who will help design your ceremony, secure musical and Renaissance character talent, guide your wedding rehearsal, and make sure all goes smoothly on your Wedding day.

Ceremony music can include harp, dulcimer, mandolin, violin, trumpet and guitar, and you can choose to have a nobleman, noblewoman, or even knights meet, greet and seat your guests. All musicians and characters will be in ornate Renaissance costume.


Caton Event’s Renaissance Wedding ensemble will create an ambiance that surrounds your guests with the joyous revelry!
Greeting: Guests are greeted at the door of your selected location by a Noblewoman & trumpet fanfares from our Herald Trumpeter.
Seating: A Nobleman or Jester will accompany your guests into the reception, helping them find their table and chatting with them.
Drink Hour: During the drink hour & throughout the wedding, costumed musicians will play on Renaissance period instruments, creating the Renaissance joy!
Wedding Party Introduction: The Noblewoman and Nobleman begin the banquet by introducing, with trumpet fanfares and English accent, the wedding party and Bride & Groom.
Best Man’s Toast & Cake Cutting: The Best Man ends his toast with a Renaissance cheer, and our Renaissance musicians sing a love song while the Bride and Groom cut their cake.
The Royal Jester’s Presentation: After the first course of the Wedding Banquet, our Royal Jester will present at ten minute set of juggling, magic and humor.
The above ensemble performance is Caton Event's basic package. Other characters such as Knights and the Renaissance Falconer are options that can be your Festive Reception Introduction package.


Decor Options: Personalized Wedding Banner, in wedding colors, with calligraphy initials intertwined in the design. (See decor and talent for more options).
Character Ambiance Options: The Falconer can be a part of indoor or outdoor receptions, and our Knights, who present a choreographed swordfight, have been part of many Caton Events weddings.
