About It's funny how tradition comes back around. Go back 100 years and you will find that most brides arrived at their wedding via a horse and carriage (in fact, most people got around on a horse and carriage full stop!) Even back then, it was something reserved for the well-to-do, or as a special occasion for the less wealthy. Today, only a select few organisations still operate horse and carriage services, and we've taken the time to pick out one of the South West's finest. Blagdon Horse Drawn Carriages was created by husband-and-wife team Mike and Nicky Lyons, along with two of their fully-trained and qualified daughters. Mike, Nicky and eldest daughter Becky have all received qualifications through the British Driving Society, and are thus fully licensed to operate a horse and carriage on public highways. The family also proudly bear their own 'Transportation/Grooms Attendance' Certificates.
