"Hello everyone, We recently got married at a Chateau in France (Brantome, Dordogne) and Hire a Shire came to our wedding. The horses delivered Confetti and ice cold beers and it really made our cocktail hour so much fun! We were so glad they came and would love to recommend them to other people getting married in France. "  A&J
