If you're in the process of planning your own country wedding and are looking for unique ways to impress your guests then you've come to the right place. Our country sports are a great addition to any wedding day or long wedding weekend. Here is a list of our favourite ideas:
Archery: If you're celebrating your special day at a historic castle, beautiful stately home or picturesque gardens then archery may be the perfect activity for your special day. For this event we will set up an attractive archery range complete with round straw targets. Two experienced instructors will be on hand throughout the session to teach your guests the skills they need to master this ancient skill.
Clay Pigeon Shooting: This is often a popular activity for the day before or the day after a wedding, particularly when guests are staying a country venue for the whole weekend. However, clay shooting works just as well during the downtime following the ceremony, prior to the wedding breakfast. For this event, we will set up a number of simple targets suitable for beginners and ensure that everyone gets one on one instruction.
Huge thank you for coming to share our special day with us. The activities were very popular with our guests - everyone loved it - so thank you!Tara & Simon
Air Rifles: Our set up includes four rifle stands and a variety of attractive knock down and paper targets. This popular activity is a great way to entertain your guests whilst you take a few photos. It takes up much less room than you would think and is really addictive with individuals looking to outscore friends and family. We can even provide medals to reward anyone who hits the most challenging target.
Falconry: Our falconry displays are a brilliant way to amuse your guests while they sip champagne and enjoy the canapés. Our skilled falconer with fly a variety of birds of prey, giving your guests an insight into the birds behaviour and biology. For guests who would like to meet the birds there will also be an opportunity to get involved in the flying demonstrations.
Duck Herding: Perhaps our most popular summer activity, duck herding has proved to be a very novel and entertaining wedding event. We will set up an obstacle course in the grounds of your wedding venue, and whilst you take some photographs, your guests will get to enjoy the canapés and welcome drinks whilst herding a group of Indian runner ducks around the course with help from our dog handler Elaine and her trained boarder collies. This is great fun for those taking part and hilarious for onlookers.
Ben and the Aim for the Sky Team provided fantastic entertainment for our wedding guests at Inglewood Manor. They were there in between the ceremony and wedding breakfast to keep our guests busy while we got some photos taken and then returned again after the meal for our day guests to have some more fun and to get our evening guests involved.Jen & Dan
The bride even had a go and hit the bullseye first time (an impressive feat considering how much I lack any kind of hand eye co-ordination). I felt like Maid Marion in my pretty dress and bow and arrow. We cannot thank you enough you really brought something extra to our special day and everyone who had a go enjoyed it thoroughly. You and your colleague were so friendly and incredibly patient with us amateurs.
We definitely recommend anyone considering archery for their wedding or event to book with these guys they are fantastic.
Whatever the theme of your day we'll be happy to tailor our activities and events to meet your needs. For pricing information or to book one of these activities for your country wedding please contact us.
