Numerous tables are set one after another in the form of a closed letter O. In the foreground between the ladies is Catherine I in a half-turn, in the background are Peter I and Alexander Menshikov, who was a master of ceremonies at the wedding. All depicted are dressed in European fashion, in a Western manner. Ladies - in elegant robes with tower-shaped hairstyles, men - in caftans and wigs. Through the open side doors, other tables are visible, at which other guests are seated. Everything is presented solemnly and ceremoniously.

    Thank you so much for the information, this is really worth keeping in mind, by the way, I could not find anything sensible on this topic anywhere in the net. Although in real life many times I came across the fact that I did not know how to behave or what to say when it came to something like that.
