barn owl as wedding accessory

Here’s the latest example of bringing falconry into a public sphere — hire Mike Roberts to bring his owl Ollie to your wedding, hand your best man a gauntlet, and let the barn owl deliver the rings. I guess it’s not that different from walking around with a bird on your fist at a renaissance faire but it does make me wonder what’s next. Here’s the story from The Guardian.

    My daughter is getting married at Eastnor Castle on New Year’s Eve and is interested in having Ollie to bring the rings to them in the church. Can you give me some contact details please?
