Leeds Castle has welcomed a new owl to its birds of prey centre this week and it's just started some very special training.
Louis will be helping couples to 'fly' the knot, learning how to glide down the aisle and act as a ring-bearer during wedding ceremonies.
Born in September 2013, the attraction's latest feathery addition arrived this week and will join other birds of prey in the duty, such as Woody the Barn Owl, seen practising in the video below.
During the ceremony, the ring is attached to the owl’s anklet with a ribbon to match the colour scheme, while the receiver of the rings wears a white falconer’s glove.
Louis is a Chaco Owl, a breed which originates from Argentina in South America and enjoys a diet of small rodents and insects.
A Leeds Castle spokesperson said: "Once Louis is settled in he will begin his training for free flying demonstrations, experience days and ring delivery for weddings.
"The Bird of Prey Centre now houses 30 birds of prey with 21 different species from a British Kestrel to a Russian Steppe Eagle."
