Here’s a creative way to keep wedding fatigue at bay: hire an falconer.
An English man bucked tradition by hiring an owl to serve as a ring bearer at his wedding last year.
There was one thing: he didn’t tell his wife-to-be.
With rings tied to his feet, Bilbo the owl flew down the aisle over guests and toward groom Shaun Palmer and bride Adele, landing on the best man’s arm.
The bride was speechless.
And judging from the smiles and jaw drops Bilbo left in his wake, she wasn’t the only one awestruck by the spectacle.
Well done, Shaun. What a hoot! Hiring a owl falconer was a good call.
