Your Wedding Breakfast

The practice of a feast after a wedding goes back to time immemorial but modern literary references are scarce prior to the middle of the 19th Century. Uniquely, in the 16th Century prior to the Reformation, the Bride and Groom would have married during a Eucharistic Mass and in order to receive Holy Communion, would have fasted from the previous evening; those not attending the Mass for the Communion would not have fasted, so it was the Bride & Groom who were ‘breaking the fast’ after their marriage.
