Choosing the Right Carriage for Your Wedding

The carriage sets the tone for your grand entrance and exit. With a diverse fleet at your service, from Cinderella-style carriages to more traditional Victorian designs, we help you select the perfect match for your theme and attire.

Victorian Carriage: Classic Elegance

For those yearning for a classical backdrop, our Victorian carriages provide a dignified air of tradition and sophistication that complements any historical or vintage-themed wedding.

Pairing with the Perfect Steeds

Our horses are more than just animals; they are the noble companions that will lead you to your new beginning. We take pride in our well-groomed, well-trained horses, ensuring they mirror the elegance of your event.

  • White Horses: Symbolizing Purity and Grandeur

  • White horses, with their majestic gait and stunning presence, offer a picturesque complement to your carriage, especially popular for traditional and royal-themed weddings.

  • Black Horses: Majestic and Powerful

  • Black horses stand as a testament to strength and are often favoured for their striking contrast against a white carriage, creating a bold visual statement.
