Talon Falconry Description

Meet "OLLIE", our experienced and loveable British Barn Owl!

Expertly trained she will glide silently from the hand of the falconer to the waiting gloved hand of the groom or best man, delivering you rings with style and charm.

The falconer and Ollie will arrive approximately 1 hour before your service is to begin. This will give her plenty of time to settle in and meet the person to whom she will be flying who will then be guided on how to handle the ring delivery. All very easy, friendly and relaxed.

Once the rings are exchanged Ollie will be passed back to the falconer and carried away so your ceremony can continue.

After the ceremony Ollie and the falconer are available for 1 hour to mingle with your guests who are welcome to handle and be photographed with her should they wish!

We recommend booking as soon as the date and venue for your special day is confirmed, this will avoid disappointment as demand for Ollie is high!

Please contact us to confirm if your wedding date is available and we will gladly answer any questions you might have,a provisional booking can be taken at this time and entered into our diary.

We had the pleasure of Ollie and Chris at our wedding this year the 12th September 2009 at Lumley Castle.
We originally thought of having this idea at our wedding when my parents had mentioned they had seen something in the paper a few months prior to our wedding. We wanted something unique and different within our service and this was ideal.
From the full process of contacting Chris at Talcon Falconry through to the actual day of our wedding was excellent service. Ollie herself is such a lovely character and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to give the Wow factor and surprise guests just like we did. Everyone is still talking about it to this day and we have some great photos of Ollie which is great for the wedding album.
Basically Ollie will fly down on queue of the best man standing up with your wedding rings attached to her feet and land on the best mans arm, you then unlatch the rings and Ollie will fly back to the handler it is so graceful and romantic.

Excellent service and a real WOW factor for our wedding! That's all that people were talking about afterwards.
Chris was superb - he came along for the rehearsal, spent plenty of time then and also after the ceremony, which was ideal as it was something for guests to do while we were having our photos done.
Probably the best thing we did for the wedding.

We have just recently got married at Heighington Church and we had the pleasure of having Chris and the gorgeous Ollie at our wedding. Chris attended the rehersal along with a yonger owl learning the ropes of ring bearing. The whole thing was amazing and the guests couldnt believe what they were seeing on the day.... really different and although many people laughed at the thought of the rings being flown down the aisle by a owl at first before the wedding itself they have later said how lovely and beautiful the whole thing was!
Chris and Ollie then came to the venue where most of our guests had pictures taken holding the owl and really enjoyed this while we were having our pictures taken which is usally a bit of a boring lull in the day for people.....very much recommended!

Chris and Ollie attended our wedding on 27th August 2010 at Hardwick Hall hotel and made our day extra special. Ollie is a beautiful barn owl and did an excellent job. We kept it secret from the majority of guests who all loved the surprise. Chris and Ollie also stayed aroun after the service which gave all our guests the chance to meet Ollie and have their photo taken. It was the perfect entertainment as we has to leave right after the ceremony for our photos. I highly recommend this service for your wedding.

Mr and Mrs Buxton

Ollie and Chris attended our wedding last week (2nd October 2010) and wow! It was amazing! Chris arrived an hour early to speak to the groom (who was going to catch Ollie and the rings) He was very very friendly and even phoned the week of the wedding to make sure everything was ok.
They say having an owl deliver your rings is magical and boy was it! I even had tears in my eyes when Ollie swooped up the aisle and delivered the rings! There were a few guests who said the same as it was actually such a moving moment! It was so so so magical and really made our day! It wouldn't have been the same without Ollie.
All the guests commented on it and even my gran who thought it was out of the ordinary said it was such a beautiful moment.
Chris, Ollie and a helper stayed for a while after the ceremony as well and this entertained the guests during photos etc and the children loved it. All the guests held Ollie and had photos. Nothing went wrong it all went smoothly and Chris is there to sort anything out. Very magical and very friendly. Highly recommend!
Thankyou Chris and Oliie for making our wedding even more magical and unforgettable.
