What is your most memorable wedding?
We offered an Owl Ring Bearing Package to a lovely couple in Tunbridge Wells, however, we did it with a difference-we used our wonderful Eva, a Harris Hawks to bring the rings down the aisle, the whole congregations was amazed by Eva's flight from the top of the church. This was followed with a falconry display in the evening for guests, such a brilliant and memorable day for them and us.

Flip flops in the evening for guests to change into. I went to a wedding in heels all day, walked through a London park to the wedding breakfast, it was so lovely to see the couple had thought about the guests and their tired toes, so all women had the chance to change into flip flops in the evening, this kept us dancing to all hours!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We usually get email or phone queries, we have a great discussion with you on the phone, get an idea of your day and how we can assist, location and dates are very important at this stage. From here, if the couple would like to proceed we take a deposit and secure the date. From here on in, we are reachable anytime on the phone or email, 4 weeks prior to the big day we will arrange to meet you if you are a Falconry client, this allows us to discuss your requirements with the birds in greater detail, or we will email you requesting for more info of the day and finalise any arrangments made. The next step to meet you on the day, we will arrive plenty in advance to set up and be ready! Our contact with the venues are important to share insurance certificates and Risk Assessments, we will do this approx 4 weeks prior to the big day also.
