Wedding owl falls asleep on the job

7 posts in this topic

A wedding service was delayed when an owl bearing rings fell asleep in the church roof.

Darcy the barn owl was meant to fly down the aisle at Holy Cross Church in Sherston, Wiltshire, and deliver rings to Sonia Cadman and Andrew Matley.

Instead the one-year-old owl flew into the church roof to roost. It took about an hour to get her down.

The Reverend Christopher Bryan said: "We tried all we could to get it down but it just wouldn't budge."

So, Mr. Andrew 'I-have-an-interest-in-falconry' Matley, what part of "mainly nocturnal" do you not understand?

There's an added bonus with a night wedding - the bride usually looks better in the dark!
