Each wedding is individual and unique and as such, as much as we would like to, we can’t offer a package price for our services. Below are a couple of examples of recent weddings that we have done which we hope will help you budget, however it is best to Contact Us to get a detailed quote.
EXAMPLE 1 – For local weddings
Hire of Burgundy Landau Carriage with pair of horses, liveried Coachman and Footman for pick up at starting address, drive to ceremony venue, wait while the happy couple were married, followed by a Romantic Horse Drawn Carriage Ride to their Reception venue, with an hour for photographs upon arrival. = £695.00 + VAT + Travel
EXAMPLE 2 – Oxfordshire Collection of Carriages
As per example 1 however with the hire of one of our Historical and Period Carriages from our Oxfordshire Collection and team of four horses = £2300.00 + VAT + Travel
Prices include our professional Coachmen who used to drive carriages at The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace so you know you are in safe hands, as well as full Public Liability Insurance and Welfare for Animal Transportation Certificates. We conduct recces of all routes prior to your big day and meetings with your venue coordinator can be arranged. You have a choice of horses who you can come and meet, as well as view our selection of carriages, to help you make your choice. For peace of mind all our staff are also DBS checked and are trusted members of our team.
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.
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.
Should your booking be cancelled 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.
Please also be aware that in the unlikely event that a situation should arise that compromises the safety of our team, our horses, our carriages, our paying guests, the general public or public property, then we reserve the right to refuse to continue providing the services outlined in your quote until the situation is made safe or the decision is made to abort. The decision to cancel a booking under these circumstances remains at our sole discretion, as does the amount that will be reimbursed to you.
If you have any questions about this please don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
