Royal weddings ignite the fairytale in all of us and the open carriage ride of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, pulled by a team of grey horses, was a highlight of last weekend.

Ingliston Country Club & Hotel not only maintains its own, fabulous white carriage for weddings, with a team of white horses and liveried grooms, but has recently added upped the “Aaaah” factor to with the addition of a miniature Shetland Pony.

At just 31 inches high,“Wee Bob” not only loves people and will mingle happily with guests, he is trained to act as ringbearer and to accompany the wedding party, including younger attendants, down the aisle. 

He also has a superpower in that he’s fully house trained and will never disgrace himself during a couple’s Big Day.

Nigel Bird, CEO at Ingliston Country Club said, “When we first heard of Wee Bob, who lives with his family and wanders in and out of the house to watch TV, we immediately saw his potential for weddings. Couples and their guests adore having the romance of horses involved in their weddings but Bob is just the right size and temperament to get really involved”.

Wee Bob’s “Mum” , Stacey Johnston adds that Wee Bob has been a family pet for nine years and his temperament is ideally suited for being around people. “He’s so calm and friendly that we also do charity visits with him as a therapy pony for the elderly or with kids. He’s just a wee star and brings love wherever he goes.”

Ingliston Country Club is a hugely special venue for weddings as it has a romantic location in the Kilpatrick Hills, just 20 minutes from Glasgow city centre and even less from the airport.

The unique function facilities can cater from 75 – 500 people and the highly personalised Wedding Planner service can deliver anything from jousting, to circus weddings, as well as uniquely romantic themes designed around the personal fairytale desired by the happy couple.
