Falconry Wedding Ring Service

Create special memories for your wedding day with this unique award winning service by Hawksdrift, believed to be the first UK company to offer falconry wedding ring delivery.

This unique service can be performed as a surprise for your guests or even for the Bride or Groom with the choice of hawk or owl during your ceremony at The Metropole Hotel. Hawksdrift Wedding Ring delivery service is created to be as flexible as possible and to ensure your day is perfect.

Wedding Ring Delivery

Your wedding rings are delivered to your best man (or person of your choice), on command during your ceremony by Hawk or Owl.

When required, the 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. The hawk / owl may be used for wedding photographs at the ceremony.

Wedding Ring Delivery & Reception Attendance

As above and in addition, the hawk or owl will attend your reception where she/he may be held and photographed by all your guests.

Hawksdrift 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.

Please contact Layla or Alex at Hawksdrift with your wedding date at The Metropole Hotel to check availability and receive an exact quotation. By mentioning you heard about Hawksdrift on The Metropole website will qualify you for a discount.

Hawksdrift hold all required Licences and Public Liability Insurance and have four Birds of Prey trained for this service, two Hawks (Hope & Jasper) and two owls (Olivia & Ben). Each bird is home – trained and lives with Layla as part of her family on their 8 acre small holding where they fly free daily.
