Your big event should be unforgettable from the very beginning. Let us transport you in the most memorable way!
As a family, we work together to transport passengers all over Victoria in style and safety, and pride ourselves on being professional, experienced and reliable. We can’t wait to talk to you and add a touch of fairytale magic to your day.
Ash is a Certified Carriage Driver and also the Vice President of the Heritage Working Draught Horse Club Inc. His passion for all things horse and carriage is hard to match! Ash loves collecting beautiful and unique equipment and turning them into magical transport for your day!
When you call Swans on Doongalla, Carolyn is the friendly and knowledgeable voice on the phone, making sure the cogs run smoothly. You may see her friendly face while she is assisting on your wedding day.
It’s important that our horses look the part, and Jaclyn is our hairdresser to the stars. Her braids are amazing! Her job is to make sure you’re as mesmerised with our horses as we are!
Jeremy has been a big part of the growth of our business, but he keeps himself busy with lots of commitments nowadays! He still loves helping out on occasion, and brings his own blend of politeness and humour to the table.
Strider is the odd ball in the team as he is a Shire Horse and not a Clydesdale. He is the wise old man and always willing to play his part. When the tough jobs need doing he never fails to rise to the task. He is a super horse in harness and is known as “Strider”. Under saddle he is known as “S T Rider”.
Herbie came to us as a young fellow and was very green, but we knew from the beginning that he would fit right in! With a lot of patience and love he has turned into a true gentleman. If there is a tough job to be done he and Strider join forces to create “Team Superhorse”!
Doc took over our beloved Gayle’s position in the team. They were big shoes to fill but he did it with style. Doc is our social butterfly – he loves the Brides and Bridesmaids and all the attention he gets at a wedding. Just be careful to keep your gorgeous bouquets our of his reach – he’s been known to give them a little taste test on occasion!
Miss Felicity is the Queen of our family. Felicity and Gayle (dec) were our first wedding horses – they gave us our start in the wedding industry. What a perfect pair they were! Felicity is now semi-retired but loves to get out and about for the odd job here and there. As the Queen, she expertly teaches the new four-legged members of our team the ropes.
Tammy is the smallest of our Clydesdales. She might look sweet but don’t let that fool you! She loves to boss Doc around – but like the happy-go-lucky horse he is, he doesn’t let it bother him. They are a well-matched team! Tammy is also a show girl – she enjoys going to shows throughout the year and strutting her stuff.
Baby Rayne is one of Felicity’s daughters and is working on becoming a future star at only 18 months. We know she’s going to follow in her mother’s footsteps and stun wedding-goers for years to come! It won’t be long before Baby Rayne becomes a regular at weddings and other special occasions.
This gorgeous boy was born to Tamey on 23.12.2015, and is our newest addition to the Swan Stud. Saint Nick is a little bit cheeky but melts you with that baby face! We can’t wait to watch him grow. Watch this space – we’ll keep you posted on his progress!
