Roman wedding in Carnuntum

Reenactment of a Roman Wedding in Carnuntum

During a Roman festival at the archaeological park of Carnuntum I watched a reenactment of a Roman wedding. That way I learned about the tradition, that the Roman bride is cloaked. Some other details: The bridegroom seems to be very confident, whereas the lady in blue dress has obviously a dark premonition.
