Frequently Asked Questions

Q

We are located in Bullsbrook and are happy to travel to Weddings & Events. Having a wonderful little travel set up makes us fully mobile.

Our horse(s) travel in a float and the carriage travels on a car trailer. We operate from as far north as New Norcia, East to York all the way down to Dwellingup and anywhere in-between. A travel fee will incur for weddings over an hour travel for us. 

Do you travel? Where can you travel to?

A

Q

Unlike a limousine or a car we cannot travel long distances in the horse and carriage. Keeping this in mind we try to keep a maximum travel distance in the carriage under 6km. This will avoid you having a sweaty horse for your wedding photos. We can travel on public roads, (no freeways or highways) although we will do our best to only travel on roads with speed limits under 70km and not super busy routes for the safety of the horses and passengers.

How far can I travel in the horse drawn carriage?

A

Q

Our Victoria Carriages seats up to four(4) adult passengers. If you have that one extra person you want to come with you in the carriage, we are more than happy for that person to sit up the front next to the driver. This person must to be fit and able to climb to the higher driver seat. Alternatively we have two matching wedding carriages, you are able to hire both and take 8 passengers. 

How many people fit in the carriage?

A

Q

Some venues or public spaces do require approval to have a horse drawn carriage or a horse on the premises.  Talk to the event coordinator at your venue and advise your wishes to have a horse drawn carriage or horse. Public spaces such as parks also require a permit from the respective city department. We are happy to provide our certificate of currency insurance papers to the venue as required.

Do I need venue approval?

A

Q

Our horses are very respectful and do not leave any waste behind. They have special poop catchers so any toilet stops will not even touch the ground and is discreetly concealed. We also have it sorted for #1’s… With a little whistle our clever horses go #1 on cue so we ask them to ‘empty’ out prior, avoiding any mishaps during the wedding or event. Although we do our best to ensure no little accidents happen during the wedding or event, we cannot guarantee nature won’t call, you are in the end working with a live animal.

What happens if/when the horse needs to go to the toilet?

A

Q

Yes. Charming Carriages is fully insured for Public Liability. We are happy to provide our certificate of currency as required.

Do you have insurance?

A

Q

Our Carriage has a weatherproof cover that can be installed if rain is forecast. The cover fully encloses the carriage to keep you dry.

What happens if it is raining?

A

Q

In the unlikely case of a severe weather warning being issued for storms/heavy rain or the temperature forecast is over 40 degrees for the day we will cancel our attendance for the safety of our customers and the welfare of our horse. Notification of this will happen as soon as the weather warning is issued. In these circumstances a re-schedule or full refund will be issued.

What if it's more than just rain?

A

Q

Cancellations by the customer will not receive a refunded deposit or full payment if it has been made, unless the date is then booked by another customer.

What is your cancellation policy?
