There will be very few instances on your wedding day when you will feel able to stop and relax, and not worry about what might go wrong or has yet to go right. But the journey to your ceremony, or as newlyweds to your reception venue, will give you a cherished moment in which to sit back and let someone else take the reins.

Using their purpose-built horse box, Devon Country Carriages are able to take their two beautiful cob horses, joined by a traditionally dressed driver, anywhere within 150 miles of Colyton to provide their services. Even if your ceremony and reception are at the same venue, you can still enjoy the serenity of a horse-drawn ride as Devon Country Carriages will find a location nearby to give you a moment to relax while your guests make their way to the breakfast.

About

Devon Country Carriages is a family-run business, and has been delivering a traditional transport service to brides and grooms for over five years. They put the welfare of their horses at the heart of their work, and the safety of all involved is paramount.

The horses are regularly ridden, having hunted and competed in show jumping and one-day events. Over the years, Fergie and Taffy have taught hundreds of people how to ride.

The Horses

Fergie and Taffy are two beautiful black and white cob horses, who look stunning next to the traditional-style carriage.

Fergie is 16.1 hands, and nearly 16 years old. She came to Devon Country Carriages from France, and had to be taught all her commands again in English! Taffy is an Irish sport horse, standing at 16.2 hands and is the friendliest horse you'll meet - she loves, and is loved by, everyone.

Both Fergie and Taffy are experienced carriage horses, knowing to pull gently so that your journey is slow and safe. The carriage moves at a speed of no more than eight miles an hour, and the maximum distance that the horses will travel to your venue is five miles.

The Carriages

The elegant cream carriage can be dressed with flowers, ribbons or ivy, and can be styled to fit any colour scheme or wedding theme. Inside, you will be able to enjoy the ride from the plush maroon leather seating, and even if the typical British weather greets you with rain, you'll keep cosy and dry under the wine-coloured hood. In the summer months, Devon Country Carriages can also take you in a sleek black carriage.

Your journey will be accompanied by two of Devon Country Carriages' fully qualified members of staff, and both driver and groom will be dressed in traditional livery.

The Service

Devon Country Carriages know that every wedding, and every couple, will have unique tastes and requirements. They will meet with you to discuss your ideas about wedding day transport, and will always try to tailor their service to suit everyone.

In addition to providing a smooth, serene ride, which they know will be a precious time for the bride and groom, Devon Country Carriages also like to offer a complimentary glass of Champagne to the newlyweds.
