Medieval Fest - part two & Trophy presentation

To set the scene and paint a the early hours of Sunday morning, a frosty light mist still remains...tis quiet and still. The aroma of burnt out fires that warmed the night. Slight sounds of movement from costume bells and chains and voices as folk awaken....

beautiful encampments....

Castles and flags. Lady Rosalie presenting trophies for strength of skill, archery, joust, oil wrestling and more...

Being cheered and acknowledged for their skill -handcrafted Medieval Mugs were awarded. It was an honour for me being commissioned to provide the trophies for the award presentation.

Lord Horn Master and his prize Medieval Mug for best in Archery...
