The Carriages

The Horse Drawn Carriage Company own two carriages for you to choose from. The traditional barouche carriage offers an elegant and customary ride, whereas the racing green country waggonette is ideal for your classic country wedding.

Traditional Barouche Carriage

An original barouche carriage dating back to the 1880's, this option offers seating for four, arranged vis-à-vis so that the sitters face each other. The carriage is painted a striking gloss black with sophisticated gold trim and brass lanterns. The light grey seating was very fashionable in the 19th century, and there is even a soft half-hood that can be raised over the back seat if the weather should turn.

Racing Green Country Wagonette

The wagonette will add real country charm to your wedding theme. It will seat four adults comfortably and is dressed in racing green with a delightful red trim. Traditional lanterns can hang from either side, and The Horse Drawn Carriage Company can add silk flowers or classic country bunting if you prefer. The carriage does not have a hood, so is better suited to wedding is the summer months


Wedding Packages

The Horse Drawn Carriage Company offer either a single or double journey wedding package. Both include Tommie and Charlie, the two beautiful white Welsh Cob X Percheron horses, the choice of two carriages and a driver and footman dressed in traditional livery.

    The addition of having the beautiful carriage and horses, turned my daughters wedding day into an absolutely amazing one. The horses looked perfect, were impeccably behaved and the carriage looked stunning. Julie and her partner looked wonderful in their uniforms and with all these elements together, it really was magical. From the first time I contacted Julie I felt very confident that it would be perfect and it certainly was. A lot of care was taken over the details before the event and were discussed well in advance of the wedding which was very reassuring. I can't say thank you enough.

    The entire experience of dealing with the Horse Drawn Carriage Company was excellent from start to finish. I made several phone calls to them arranging a Carriage for my Daughters wedding and each time they were extremely helpful. It wasn't a straightforward booking as the couple were not leaving the venue , but they were determined that the Bride and Groom would have a Carriage ride and they did ! A very pretty carriage decorated with flowers and Champagne as well, not forgetting of course Tommy and Charlie the beautiful horses.

  • Claire and Alex

    Nothing less than a first class service! Julie was a pleasure to deal with and the ride was perfect to relax on after our ceremony. A fairytale dream come true, highly recommended!
