A king's wedding night- Servants and Bodyguards

Ok i've done searches for "Medieval wedding ceremonies" "Medieval wedding ceremonies nobility" "Medieval wedding ceremonies  aristocracy" "Medieval wedding ceremonies king" "Medieval wedding nights" (And again with the various  suffixes used on the above searches)  and  "privacy kings middle ages"

I came up with two pretty good sites.

and
http://www.newandusedbooks.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=features2&feature_elementID=33

Suggesting that for  the medieval nobility privacy was pretty much a no no. I'd assume that's pretty much the same  during the renaissance, but I'd love it if anyone could confirm . Basically I want to know if  a renaissance king is likely to have bodyguards and servants in the room with him on his wedding night.

I will likely be taking some artistic licence. (For instance at least some of my countries will not be sending their children away to manage their own households) but I'd like to know what i'm discarding.

Thanks in advance people.
