Frequently Asked Questions

Q?

The distance between my house and the church is not far but it’s over 10 miles to the reception. What can you do?

A.

We can either take you to the church only or we can take you to church, wait while you have the ceremony, you can have your photos taken with the horses and carriage and then we can drop you off a mile or so down the road and let you go the rest of the way in a hire car.

Q?

How many people can fit in the carriage?

A.

Up to four people though in most cases the bride and her father travel to the church and the bride and groom travel from the church.

Q?

My daughter is only six years old. Can she have a ride in the carriage with me?

A.

Unfortunately our insurance will only cover us to carry passengers over eight years old. Sorry!

Q?

Can my guests and I pat the horses?

A.

Yes, there will be plenty of time outside the church while you are having your photos taken. Please do so at your own risk! The horses are all very friendly and well trained but are still animals with minds of their own.

Q?

What happens if it rains?

A.

The hoods of the Landau can be quickly closed so that you are warm and dry inside a completely closed carriage.

Q?

I live in a busy part of London; do the horses mind the traffic?

A.

Absolutely not. They have been through tunnels, over bridges, past road works and through heavy traffic. Remember – the streets of London were originally designed for horses!
