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

There are a couple things going on here. For one, we are made privy to a birth out of wedlock that leads to incredible anger from a powerful man. The wedding is a powerful affair where the rich flaunt their wealth. They are really ugly and arrogant people. After the wedding, a woman is found impaled in a wall, a sword through her chest. Barnaby must get information from people who feel they are too important to be bothered. There is a little society that uses archery as a pastime, but great tension lives within them. We know people are withholding secrets from the past. Meanwhile more dramatic stuff takes place. Barnaby it's almost killed by one of the archers, although it is blamed on a defective arrow. Interestingly, nobody cares for anyone else. Suffice it to say, this is a pretty good episode because nothing is obvious and there are a lot of possibilities. The concluding scene is quite wonderful. We also are treated to the wedding of Cully Barnaby and all the last minute gyrations of that affair.
