Our Carriage Horses

We are proud to offer an English Shire (photo to the left)

 and four black Percherons (photo to the right) and one all white Percheron (no photo at this time).

They all look absolutely stunning on an elegant white carriage.
 

Our horses are accustomed to church bells, sirens, and horns and travel well along-side traffic. 


Photographers and guests are amazed at how
well they stand for pictures! You will be too.

 

General Information
 

                    

 

 

Our Fee
Our fee covers all preparation, set up, and travel time. Our prices are determined by date, time, location, and the number of horses/carriages you are requesting. There is a minimum price for one horse and an elegant white carriage for up to two hours. Please call for additional information.


When we travel off site
We have large trucks and trailers which are specially designed to transport our horses and carriages. When we arrive, we discreetly set up everything 'out of site' and be ready to serve you at the time and location that you have specified on our Agreement.


How far do we travel ?
We are very centrally located in Terryville, CT which is 25 miles west of Hartford and approx. 10-15 miles from Waterbury, Southington, and Torrington. For the sake of our horses, we prefer to stay within a 75 mile radius from the farm.


  How many hours will I need?
A horse drawn carriage is ideal for short distances. Therefore, as you travel at a relaxed pace, you are able to enjoy this day you have worked so hard to plan for. Allow approx. 10 min. per mile and keep travel distance within a 2 mile radius. Be sure to allot enough time for;
 (A) a receiving line    (B) photos with the carriage   (C) travel time to your reception


Be sure what you see IS what you get!

Does the company you are interested in provide the horses/carriages that you see? They may be pictures of years ago. What you see is NOT always what you get! Therefore, if you have the opportunity to meet with the carriage company you are considering, we encourage you to do so.

We would be happy to set up an appt. to meet with you with absolutely no obligation.


We go above and beyond

Two courteous drivers are outfitted in tuxedos and top hats. A female attendant is there to assist you with your gown while getting in and and out of the carriage and during pictures. After the ceremony, a sparkling beverage will be served to 'celebrate the moment'!. Knowing the best angles to photograph a horse and carriage, your driver/attendant will work as a team to ensure your photographer gets 'the perfect pictures'!


      We guarantee to make your special day a unique and memorable one!

 

We are proud of the service we offer

 

We strive to create 'unforgettable' memories and
make special dreams come  true for our couples.

After 41 years of specializing in weddings,
we still enjoy hearing...
        "You were the best part of our wedding day"!

     We hope you will allow us this same opportunity. 

 

With warmest regards,
 

                                   The Wood Family

 

 

                Life is not measured by the breaths we take....

                                 but by the moments that take our breath away!

Thank you for making our day 'amazing'. The time spent in the carriage, before & after the ceremony,  allowed for peace, quiet & the opportunity to take in the moments. You two were extremely pleasant & certainly added to our wonderful day!
