Just wow!!! Childhood dreams can come true!
Just wow!!! Ever since being a little girl I dreamed of having horse and carriage for my wedding having grown up with horses and that dream came true on the 25th August thanks to The Ostler. From enquiry through to the big day we kept in contact and Gayle was happy to answer any questions I had. I kept my transport a secret from our guests and they were all amazed and commented on how lovely it was. I went for white carriage and black horses and they did not disappoint. So much so I struggled to hold back the tears when they arrived. Fred and Pier are a stunning pair of stallions and their cheeky nature fitted in well with our personalites and day. The team are very friendly and helpful and I can't thank them enough Childhood dreams can come true! Anyone thinking of booking The Ostler for their event should go ahead with it, you have soo much choice for the money The new Mrs Kemp 💕

"You wont regret it!"
***** The Ostler were amazing from start to finish and provided a first class experience for our wedding day. It was a special moment for me and my husband to ride in the Horse & Carriage from the church back to the venue and have those precious moments together. The carriage itself was stunning and the staff on the day lovely. They arrived punctual, even early to pick me and my dad, bridesmaids up and brought so much character to our day. I felt like a true princess in a period drama. I would highly recommend booking as travel for your wedding day. You won’t regret it!
