Amazing wedding falconry events - The sky's the limit.
Make your celebrations swing after the ceremony and entertain your guests with some wedding falconry or bird of prey display. The lull between the ceremony and reception can prove difficult to manage. If the only resort for your guests is the bar this can lead to a bit of over consumption early in the celebrations. However, having your guests hold and get an up close experience with the birds will be a great event. Flying sessions can also be provided so some of the birds will fly free to your guests fists.
Make your wedding even more amazing with our wedding falconry options. All of these are great additions to your wedding celebrations so read on and see what you think will suit your special occasion. If you think you need something different please call and we will do our best to make it happen.
The Falconer's Cadge.
Have a team of perfectly presented falcons so you and your guests can spend time marvelling at their beauty and perfection. This is a hands on wedding falconry experience and this will certainly give your guests a great time.
The cadge is a traditional device used for carrying falcons. In the days before quad bikes and four by fours an older member of the team was allocated the job of carrying the cadge of falcons out into the hunting grounds. We will attend with our cadge and at least four fantastic falcons. They will happily sit on any of your guests fists for close up interaction and photos. We will tell your guests all about the history and excitement of falconry's past.
As the cadge is portable we can be located indoors or out and we will bring an artificial grass floor protector to use if needed.
We will be on site for up to two hours and the cost is £299
Add some owls for just £99 extra
The Weathering Ground
Traditionally hawks and falcons are taken from the "mews", their overnight quarters, and put out to "weather" each day on the weathering ground. Let us recreate this traditional falconry scene for your wedding falconry experience. We will bring a selection of our fantastic birds of prey to display ("weather") at your venue and your guests can view and hold the birds while finding out all about the birds, falconry and its history. Your wedding birds of prey display will be a mixture of owls, hawks and falcons.
If the weather is not at its best we will have the birds in a covered gazebo, which we will provide, and guests can see and handle them under cover. If the weather prevents guests from coming outside to see the birds, can convert to the Falconer's Cadge and bring some birds indoors. If we have agreed to bring some owls then they can be brought in singly for your guests to admire and enjoy.
We will be on site for up to two and a half hours and the cost is £399
Add Meet and Greet for £99 extra.
The Weathering Ground + Flying Display
Add a flying display and have your guests feel the thrill of an owl or hawk flying to and landing on their fist. If the venue and your timetable is suitable some of the birds will be able fly to and from your guests' gloves. We can also have one of our Peregrine falcons, Rory or Zippy, fly freely to a lure so you can see the speed and agility of the world's fastest animals flying above people's heads – a real crowd pleaser.
We will be on site for up to three hours and the cost is £499
Add Meet And Greet £99
Meet & Greet with Elvis the Eagle Owl
We will arrive before the ceremony and our falconer will welcome your guests to the venue with our large, majestic and very friendly Eurasian Eagle Ow. Elvis will sit on your guests fists for photos and everyone will be wowed by his presence but he's a big softy at heart, and he loves a good wedding.
