The couple, whose big day was also witnessed by their pet dog, said they wanted to do "something unusual".
Staffordshire bull terrier, Cracker, was dressed in his own tie and tails for Saturday's wedding.
Speaking before the ceremony, Helen Chadfield, who has run the aviary and hawk centre in Bath for eight years, said "it would be a spectacular conclusion to the wedding and a big surprise for some of the guests".
Charles Brierley, managing director of The White Hart, added: "We have had some really unusual requests from couple's who have chosen to marry here. But this takes the biscuit - or should I say rings."
Who was the best man, Harry Potter?
Owls are very bright birds. We had a pet screech owl when I was a kid (he was born with a club foot; we acquired him when he kept falling off the branch near his birth nest because he couldn’t perch correctly), and he was just a terrific little “person.” Very affectionate and bright, loved to be petted, would prance around and flap his wings enthusiastically anytime we played music, especially Bach. He lived to be 17. I still think of him often.
No picture of the DOG????? Barbarians.
LOL! Very cool wedding.
Using an owl to deliver the rings; very creative. I’m sure the surprise was delightful for the guests.
Once again, THANK YOU!
