The title notwithstanding, this is an image of only the wedding between Esther and Ahasuerus (Esther 2:17-18). On the left side, Ahasuerus (with the sceptre) leads his officials into the wedding feast. On the right side we see him giving Esther a ring (in the left arch), and then honoring her as she sits at table (in the right arch).
