The bride in this photo, Denise, is a Scottish falconer and that owl is much, MUCH more than an accessory — it’s a tiny owl ring bearer, and his name is Puck. Denise and her husband Martin recently got married at the Dalhousie Castle near Edinburgh. Denise and Martin planned their winter wedding in just five months, and if you want to get an eye-full of how beautifully it turned out, head on over to Flickr!
Joanne and Brian ALSO had an owl as their ring bearer.
My funniest moment was seeing the puzzled looks on our guests faces when they heard some very weird noises coming from outside. Then seeing their utter astonisment as a barn owl flew down the aisle to the Harry Potter Theme Song, and delivered the wedding rings to my son. The owl sat on his arm and let him unhook the rings from his foot!
Ollie stole the show, and everyone had their pictures taken with him afterward!
Kim and Charles had a Great Gatsby-themed Baltimore castle wedding. They hired a master falconer to bring a hawk and an owl to the wedding. Which, as Photo Pink said, “added the final amazing touch to what was already an incredible wedding.”
Owls + weddings = dramatic awesomeness. Who knew!?
We know animals aren’t ACTUALLY accessories — the title of this post is hyperbole.
