Barbara has long had the dream to drive a wedding carriage and join in the celebrations! When she came down to the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, she commissioned a bespoke carriage from a local carriage builder – after all local is lekker! He studied wedding magazines and the carriage just kept getting wider and wider – “Well,” he said: “All the dresses were so wide, I didn’t want them to crumple.” And they don’t!
The carriage is a beautiful canopied vehicle, painted dark burgundy – almost black – with red burgundy wheels and black button quilted upholstery. It truly makes a fantastic entrance drawn by the our very special Shire horse, Miss Mollie Potts, who is a wonderful shiny dark chocolate brown. With roses and ribbons in her mane it makes a wonderful picture. Molly is a competition horse and used to noise and crowds, we trust her completely to be absolutely dependable no matter what. She has a well developed sense of occasion and certainly enjoys all the pomp and ceremony!
At Champagne Carriages, we believe that the proof is in the pudding! Read on for some reviews from our happy customers.
Just wanted to email you to thank you so much for a wonderful and amazing experience we both had on our wedding day.
Words cannot explain but I’m sure my smile did, I truly felt like a princess next to my prince on my wedding day. And we both felt like Royalty.
Everything was perfect that day especially the beautiful weather. Thank you again for making our day something we will remember for the rest of our lives.
