The horse drawn carriage company takes great pride in offering traditional horse & carriage hire for weddings, proms, fetes, experience days, film and other events.
We are passionate about our animals and are very proud to work with them on a day to day basis, each has their own personality and quirky ways which adds to their and your enjoyment of them on the day.
Our matching pair of wedding horses – Tommie and Charlie - are real head turners, being half brothers it is quite difficult to tell them apart! They know exactly what their job is and they love to get involved, be the centre of attention and have a fuss made of them! Having these two intelligent, kind and honest horses as part of your special day will give you a magical experience which we know you will cherish forever.
We are located in West Sussex and cover the whole of East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey and some parts of Kent and Hampshire.
Whichever carriage you hire, it will be impeccably clean and lovingly decorated with white and cream silk flowers with green foliage. We also provide a complimentary bottle of champagne and glasses for you to enjoy in the carriage.
The horse drawn carriage company is one of the few carriage companies in the UK that is certified to The British Driving Society level 4 commercial qualification. We also hold WATO certification (welfare of animals in transport order) and have in place £5 million public liability insurance.
All our horse drawn carriages will be driven by an experienced driver who will be accompanied by a groom. They will both be dressed in a smart traditional livery outfit. Read more…
