Forget having a child deliver the rings at your wedding. They may be adorable, but they’re totally unreliable. Instead, why not use a well-trained bird of prey?

This otherwise normal-looking wedding took a turn for the awesome when the rings arrived courtesy of a live owl. Trained to land on a particular falconry gauntlet, it flew down the aisle to arrive on the best man’s arm. You can tell the owl was a surprise participant when the bride laughs in happiness at its sudden appearance in the middle of her wedding.

Those gauntlets also mean anyone can hold the owl, which made for some awesome wedding photos outside the church. We hope this trend catches on, at the very least among Harry Potter fans.
