Oriontree is a not-for-profit with the goal being to get more people to experience animals. The more people meet animals, the less they fear them and invent stories about them. Bringing alpacas to weddings is a perfect way to break down barriers. The guests who are a little more nervous can watch how they are well-behaved from afar and build up the courage to come and stroke them and have a photo taken with them. The more confident ones are already there! They can take them for a little walk around the venue grounds, if desired, too. But what about something even more unusual? Do you already have a ring bearer planned? If not, why not have Mungo bring you your rings on a ribbon round his neck?
What do alpacas do at weddings?
We offer three packages to give you an idea of what we can offer on the day. However, this is YOUR special day, so if you have something in mind, just let us know and we’ll tailor a package to suit your needs. After all, this is your dream day. Just remember, these are alpacas, not unicorns…
How much does it cost to have alpacas at my wedding?
We pride ourselves on not adding the ‘wedding premium’ that seems to be common in the wedding industry. The prices we charge are the same as we’d charge for any other type of event. It is all based on time, equipment and distance.
How far do you travel?
We are happy to travel all over. Please get in touch wherever you are and wherever you’re getting married.
Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Dani
First of all, congratulations!
I have been working with alpacas for over a decade now. My boys go into schools, care homes, private homes... you name it. They are clean, polite, and no, they don't spit. I mean, alpacas CAN spit, but my boys don't. They make me proud every day. They have brought so many smiles to people's faces and I can't wait for them to make your guests smile and laugh and to give you special memories when you look back at your photos.
