Most bridal cars tend to be vintage cars but with most of the year permitting warm weather, horse and carriage rides are the ultimate in romance.
Few people offer this service locally for wedding purposes so you will not have to shop around a lot for quotations. Make sure the person you choose is reliable and ask for references.
Consider the speed of the horses, which will be suggested by the carriage driver and be sure to get your timings right. If possible, choose a church and a reception venue in rather close proximity. And a downhill ride would be ideal for the animal/s.
Maltese carriages are known for their beauty but not necessarily for ease of getting into or down from. The high steps may seem daunting – discuss this with the carriage driver and make sure you obtain a step-stool especially for the bride.
Both the obvious beauty and the rarity of use of such vehicles for transport between the church and the reception venue can offer great opportunities for photo and video shots.
