Barbara has long had the dream to drive a wedding carriage and join in the celebrations! When she came down to the Midlands, she commissioned a bespoke carriage from a local carriage builder – after all local is lekker! He studied wedding magazines and the carriage just kept getting wider and wider – “Well,” he said: “All the dresses were so wide, I didn’t want them to crumple.” And they don’t!
The carriage is a beautiful canopied vehicle, painted dark burgundy – almost black – with red burgundy wheels and black button quilted upholstery. It truly makes a fantastic entrance drawn by the our very special Shire horse, Miss Mollie Potts, who is a wonderful shiny dark chocolate brown. With roses and ribbons in her mane it makes a wonderful picture. Molly is a competition horse and used to noise and crowds, we trust her completely to be absolutely dependable no matter what. She has a well developed sense of occasion and certainly enjoys all the pomp and ceremony!
