Feel like royalty on your special day, arriving to your ceremony in one of our beautiful horse drawn carriages. With a range of carriages and horses to choose from, there is sure to be one to suit your desires.
We understand that every wedding is unique and will customise our service to best suit your needs. Horses sparkling clean, carriages polished, driver dressed to the nines in top hat and tails, or a more relaxed appearance if you would prefer, we customise our involvement around your plans and work with you and your photographer.
We like to check out venues well in advance and preplan our route on maps and drive it in a car weeks out, to ensure the day runs as smoothly as possible.
1 horse $1000 (plus travel if applicable)
Pair $1500 (plus travel if applicable)
Nestled away in the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula is the hidden gem of Langhorne Creek Wine Region. This quaint and little known wine region is home to some highly regarded, and well awarded cellar doors and wine makers, not to mention steeped in history.
We set off from the carpark of the Bridge Hotel, we will travel by horse and carriage to visit these cellar doors, to taste their wines and sample the local produce. You can spend as long or as little time in each one as you like, while our horses do some grass sampling of their own, awaiting your return. Visiting Bremerton, Lake Breeze, Bleasdale, Kimbolton, and The Winehouse, which also houses Meechi Brewery, there is sure to be something that tickles your taste buds.
Enjoy the ambience of horse drawn carriage travel, while sharing a cheese platter with your friends, and learn a little about the history of the region. Plenty of boot space in the carriage to carry your purchases, or we can arrange for delivery back to your vehicle if you want to buy that much! This is such a memorable and enjoyable way to spend time in this boutique wine region. Tours last for 3 and a half hours, with starting times flexible to suit your requirements.
If you love the sound of this, but don’t have a designated driver, you can always stay at one of the local B&B’s. There are a number in the Langhorne Creek township, where we can collect and deliver you to your door.

Dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh… OK, so we don’t have any snow, and the sleigh bit- well this is pretty close. What better way to get into the Christmas spirit, than by touring the Christmas lights of Strathalbyn. Lasting approximately 1 hour we do a 6km loop, viewing some beautiful Christmas light displays, with the joyful jingle of Christmas carols playing in the back ground. Delightful for young or old, and flexible times as we only take one tour per night.

Frequently Asked Questions
We are based in Strathalbyn and are happy to travel to Wedding & Events. Our horses travel in a float or truck and the carriage travels in a trailer. We operate anywhere in South Australia, however a travel fee will apply in some circumstances.
We can travel up to 5kms. We usually do this at a walk, to avoid you having a sweaty horse for your wedding photos. We travel on public roads, but do not go on freeways or highways. We try to only travel on roads with speed limits under 80km/hr for the safety of the horses and passengers. We are also particular about hills or terrain, so we always assess potential routes before accepting any booking.
Each of our carriages fit a different number of people. Please check out our carriages page to find the one that best suits your needs and personal preference. Our horses also have different capabilities, and we have set passenger weight limits to suit the individual horse. We are happy to discuss your individual requirements.
Some venues or public spaces do require approval to have a horse drawn carriage or a horse on the premises. Talk to the event coordinator at your venue and advise your wishes to have a horse drawn carriage or horse. We are happy to converse with the venue if required. Public spaces such as parks may also require a permit from the respective city department. We are happy to provide our certificate of currency insurance papers to the venue as required.
Some of our carriages have weatherproof covers that can be installed if rain is forecast. We have umbrellas and do our best to keep you dry.
In the case of a severe weather warning being issued for storms/heavy rain for the day we will be in contact to work out alternative arrangements.
We can not attend if the forecast is for 37 degrees or over, due to horse welfare. A full refund will be made in this circumstance.
Cancellations by the customer will not receive a refunded deposit or full payment if it has been made, unless the date is then booked by another customer.
