As much as possible we will try and co-ordinate what we can offer you with your thoughts for your big day. As such there are a lot of fun choices that you can make that can add those special details.
Our team all wear livery so that you distinguish them and know that they are part of our team, but also so that they look good in photographs. Therefore we have a choice of Livery that you can choose from including standard black coachman cloak and top hat, red livery jackets for that Royal element to your day, country tweed with bowler hat and even knights and squires (see our Medieval Wedding page). Let us know your preference when booking.
Champagne (or a non-alcoholic equivalent) can be provided in our carriages ready for when we collect you as a newly married couple. With a couple of champagne flutes this is a perfect way to relax on your journey to your Reception Venue.
If you would like head plumes on the horses that are pulling your carriages these can be added for you to tie in with your colour scheme. Please note that we have a majority of colours in stock but if you would like a colour to match your scheme that we don’t have a lot of requests for, then we may ask for a small contribution towards their purchase as we will unlikely use them again.
Bunting and Ribbon
We can decorate the carriages with bunting and ribbon for you. We have a small selection of bunting mainly in ‘country pink and green colours’. Ribbon can be supplied in a variety of colours, just let us know your selection when booking. Alternatively if you would like to provide your own ribbon and bunting please make sure that you let us know at the time of booking and that it arrives with us at least one week before your big day.
Unfortunately, we can’t provide flowers to decorate your carriage with however we are more than happy to work with your florist if you would like some floral decoration on your carriage. Please let us know at the time of booking if this is something that you may be interested in.
Just Married Sign
We can provide you with a Just Married Sign if you would like, which can be attached to the back of the carriage however we can’t tie empty tin cans to the back of the carriage for obvious reasons! Just let us know when booking if you would like us to attach the sign ready for when you exit your Ceremony Venue.
Fancy arriving in even greater grandeur! We can provide mounted escorts to accompany you and your carriage. Like a guard of honour our two mounted escorts ride stunning horses in a livery of your choice (see above) in front of and behind your carriage to mark your arrival. For those interested in a medieval theme, these can even be knights in shining armour (see our Medieval Wedding pages). Please let us know when booking so that we can quote you to provide Mounted Escorts for your big day.
The Rescue Pack
We will always have a rescue pack in all of our carriages (just in case!) which includes: tissues, hairspray, mirror, hairbrush, safety pins, hair clips, water. Our team are experience in wedding day nerves and jitters so just let us know if there is anything else that you would like available in your carriage that will make your journey extra special and we will try as hard as possible to accommodate your wish.
Blankets, Umbrellas and Fans
Due to the unpredictability of the wonderful British weather, we have nice warm wool blankets, umbrellas and fans (small electric or paper) available in the carriage just in case. As with The Rescue Pack if there is anything else that you think that you might need, do let us know when booking.
