Fall In Love with Charnwood Forest Alpacas…
If you are looking for that special “wow” moment to make your wedding unforgettable then we can definitely recommend a wedding with alpacas.
Our animals are gentle and loving with their soft “hums” making a perfect backdrop for your wedding guests. They can be as involved in your wedding as you wish, from a small background feature to your main event the choice is yours… Whatever role our alpacas play, they will be certain to charm and entertain your guests and will add an extra special touch to your special day.
When we select the perfect alpacas for an event we choose from the most friendly, relaxed and confident animals within our herd, this gives us a good number to pick from. We receive a large volume of visitors to our farm each week and because of this our animals have, over time, learned to trust humans, especially when they come bearing food treats! The animals that are born and bred by us at the farm are especially inquisitive and extremely confident… they love to show off to their adoring audiences.
We offer three different Wedding “Alpackages” that we have designed to suit most wedding sizes, venues and budgets… if you have any special requests we will do our very best to accommodate them so please do ask.
Silver Alpackage £300

Arriving at your venue as your ceremony ends we will be present during your drinks reception where our handler will lead the alpacas through your guests and provide plenty of opportunity for petting and nose nuzzling. We will then supply the alpacas for photographs so both you and your guests can capture those precious memories.

Friends and family will have the unique opportunity to pet and photograph our alpacas while they await the bridal party. We remain at your venue for your drinks reception, two animals will stay in the petting pen and our handler will lead the others to mingle with your guests. Our alpacas will be on hand for wedding party photos having perfected the alpaca “selfie”

This is also a great time to get some quirky groomsman photos with our animals!
We remain at your venue for your drinks reception where our two handlers mingle through your family and friends with the alpacas and assist with wedding party photo alpaca positioning... more complementary feed will be available at this time for those who want that extra special bonding experience with the animals.
