TRAVEL

Working with a number of local wedding planners and venues we are able to provide you with the best possible horses and carriages for your big day.  For local weddings (within 25 miles of Hay-on-Wye) we are pleased to be able to offer travel costs free of charge.

If you would like a horse drawn carriage or a wedding arrival on horseback for your big day but are based further than 25 miles from Hay-on-Wye please see travel costs below:

  • Travel for weddings within 25 miles of Hay-on-Wye = Free of Charge
  • Travel for weddings 26 – 60 miles of Hay-on-Wye = £2.00 per mile round trip
  • Travel for weddings further than 60 miles = £2.00 per mile round trip + possible overnight accommodation charges

How do I book?

For all weddings, we will provide you with a detailed quote, outlining clearly what we will provide you with on the day after we have discussed with you your requirements.  To discuss your requirements please Contact Us.

If you would like to go ahead all we ask is for 20% of the final amount to be paid as a deposit to secure your booking for which you will receive a receipt.  This is non-refundable if you cancel your booking at any point with less than 1 year to your wedding date.

We will invoice you for the remaining balance one month before the date of your event and require the balance to be settled within 7 days of the invoice.  Unfortunately, if we don’t receive the balance in full within this time then we will release the date to those on our cancellation list and you will have, by non-payment, cancelled your booking.

Cancellations

We realise that the unforseen can happen and as such will work with you the best we can if you need to cancel or postpone your date.  We do recommend that you take out wedding insurance just in case the unforseen happens.

Should you wish to cancel your booking with more than 1 year until the date of your wedding you will receive back your deposit however if you cancel your booking with less than 1 year until your date please note that your deposit is non-refundable.  If you cancel your booking due to non payment please be aware that you will not receive your deposit back, however in the extremely unlikely situation that we have to cancel your booking due to the illness of one of the horses then we will try our best to provide you with a suitable alternative with your permission.  Should a suitable alternative not be available, you will receive back any monies you paid to The Cavalry of Heroes in relation to the booking that was cancelled.  If you have any questions about this please don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
