Apologies to a very old song written over a century ago, but you don’t have to attend your wedding ceremony on a “bicycle built for two” as the lyrics go. Instead, a beautifully liveried carriage pulled by a team of magnificent horses is more than affordable and will be one of the focal points of a truly memorable day.
A horse and carriage means many things to many different people. Here at Horse and Carriage we have many years providing horse drawn transportation for happy events and sad events. Typically we provide the following:
A wedding should be an occasion to remember for all the right reasons. The photographs taken on the day will be timely reminders in the years to come of what a memorable day it truly was. A carriage decked out and decorated with floral arrangements is so much more than a chauffeured limousine or even a Rolls Royce. Unlike a chauffeured car, a carriage and horses will become a focal point of your special day.
Regardless of your cultural background we can provide a beautifully liveried carriage pulled by a team of horses, complete with a professional driver to see you get to your event safely and on time.
We cater for English weddings and Asian weddings plus many other cultural traditions, and have many years of successfully delivering something special on what is after all a very special day.
Anyone can arrive at their wedding venue in a car; how much better and totally different would it be to arrive in style in a beautiful carriage, all decked out in flowers and decorative ribbons? On such a special day, dare to be different and stand out from the crowd.
Likewise an end of school year prom event marks the transition from school to the big wide world. It is always an event which one should arrive at in style. Stretch limousines are ten a penny and really old hat. A carriage pulled by two horses white and black will see your friends green with envy at the very sight of you arriving at the prom venue in a truly outstanding mode of transport.
Proms are increasingly becoming more of a competitive event. We are all a little bit competitive, and everyone likes to try and outdo their friends now and then. For getting one over on your friends, a carriage pulled by a team of horses to transport you to your end of year prom canít be beaten for originality, and is certainly not lacking in flair and panache.
If you are interested in the sport of horse and carriage eventing, we have a professional team of instructors all of whom are competent in offering and overseeing horse carriage lessons. To simply have some fun or to partake in horse and carriage eventing, learning to drive a horse and carriage could be just the thing for you.
On the other hand, you may want to become a full time driver in your own right. With our complete course of lessons on offer, you can achieve something of distinction. Driving a carriage pulled by a team of horses is more a vocation, and is certainly considered a prestige job.
We will impart our knowledge to you; at the end of a full course of carriage driving lessons, you will have the skill and knowledge required to safely manage a team of horses complete with carriage on public roads and in public thoroughfares.
While none of us like to think of or talk about funerals, it is a sad fact of life. Sending a loved one off is a daunting task; making their journey to their final resting place by way of a horse drawn hearse pulled by two magnificent black horses is a fitting tribute. It is a unique mark of respect to anyone who will be sorely missed by friends and family alike.
