Cully is finally getting married and Tom Barnaby is anxious to keep costs down as Joyce brings in a camp wedding planner. More dramatic is the union between aristocrat Ned Fitzroy and Beth Porteous when maid of honour Marina is found skewered to a wardrobe in one of the bedrooms. The Fitzroy family's lordly attitude does not help the investigation and then estate manager Robin Lawson and old family servant Peggy are both murdered. Barnaby discovers that both were aware of a sinister Fitzroy family secret, culminating in the events of the blood wedding. Written by

I enjoyed this episode. This is about a rich family celebrating a wedding. It is a tangled mess. A woman gets killed after the wedding and the police are called.
Barnaby and Jones show up to interview the guest and the family. The Fitzroy family-- Harry Fitzroy is played Charles Edwards who played as Arthur Conan Doyle in Murder Rooms: Mysteries of the Real Sherlock Holmes is the groom. He is cocky and also had an affair with the woman who is found stabbed in his house.
The murders in Midsomer are always gruesome. The Fitzroy family give the police very little co-operation. Another person is killed by an arrow.
There are many twist and turns in this episode. There is a lot going on for Barnaby, his daughter Cully is getting married and her career and his future husband's seem to change a lot of their plans that might interfere with them getting married.
A funny scene in the story is Barnaby's former mate SGT TROY --DANIEL CASEY almost runs a police car off the road. He is known for his bad driving. Troy is on his way to Cully's wedding.
This one has a happy ending which is unusual for this series.
