We believe Hawksdrift Falconry was the UK's original company to be offering wedding ring delivery by both Hawk or Owl.
This award winning service was created for Hawksdrift by Layla in 2006 and after several months of training was first performed in August 2007 for the wedding of Roy & Adele at the Gibbon Bridge Hotel.
Layla has been recognised by Powys Business Awards for the initiative and running of this service.
The ring delivery can be performed as a surprise for your guests or even for the Bride or Groom. Our wedding video at the link below shows a delivery by Hope performed as a surprise for Judith the Bride.
We hold all required Licences and Public Liability Insurance and we travel throughout the UK. We have four Birds of Prey trained for this service
Hope & Jasper are our Hawks
Olivia & Ben are our Owls.
Each bird is home - trained and lives with us as part of our family on our 8 acre small holding where they fly free daily.
Please contact Layla or Alex with your wedding date and location to check our availability and receive an exact quotation. Due to popular demand our prices are scaled with weekdays and winter-time being at the lower prices.
Please contact us as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Our service is created to be as flexible as possible and to ensure your day is perfect, you may choose from below the three types of services available.
Wedding Ring Delivery

When required our Bird of Prey will carry the rings from the rear of the ceremony over your guests and down the aisle, landing on the gloved hand of the best man, he may take the rings and the bird will then return to the handler. Our hawk / owl may be used for wedding photographs at the ceremony.

Wedding Ring Delivery & Reception Attendance
As above and in addition, our hawk or owl will attend your reception where she/he may be held and photographed by all your guests. We will stay for the duration of the evening so that the bird is available for all professional and personal photography and there is plenty of time for all guests to have the opportunity of handling the bird. If there is a suitable area, she/he may be free flown.
