Barn Owl Ring Bearers are a unique wedding service based out of Durham, in northeast England. The first organisation in the world to offer this service is owned by Stuart Laidler, one of the UK's top commercial Falconers with a strong background in wedding planning. Stuart and his dedicated team train barn owls to deliver the wedding rings during the ceremony in an elegant and romantic manner. The silent flight of the highly-trained barn owl makes the delivery of your wedding rings a truly unique and special moment.
Barn Owl Ring Bearer offer a select number of services to couples on their wedding day. The experienced owl will carry both rings to the gloved hand of a nominated person in the wedding party. The team can arrive discretely, keeping the owl as a surprise for the guests until the ceremony. They will stay with the owl for one hour afterwards to entertain friends and family.

A touch of magic that our guests couldn't stop talking about!
Roy had traveled so far just to make our day special and he definitely succeeded.
All of our guests were amazed as we had kept the owl a secret, and he was the highlight of the day, everyone loved holding and petting him afterwards.
We also had Fuzz the little owl in attendance, for holding. Both of the owls are so well trained and easy to handle. The whole experience of having owls at our wedding made it memorable and unique 🦉
A massive talking point!
Bilbo did a fantastic job flying our wedding rings down the isle & stayed for photos afterwards. Fuzz the small owl then made an appearance for photos with our guests while we were off having our photos taken.
They were fantastic to deal with & made it a total surprise to my wife and all our wedding guests.
If you want something unique that people will be talking about long after the wedding then book them!
What a brilliant addition to our day!
Bilbo was incredibly well behaved, very patient, and did his job exceptionally – he stuck around for a while after and so was the star of many photos! It was definitely a lovely talking point throughout the day.
