Donkey Sanctuary Awarded Wedding License

Being rather animal obsessed I love seeing couples get their dogs and various pets involved in their nuptials. We've been asked to incorporate four legged friends in many a stationery design. We are yet to design a donkey themed suite, but I hope that's soon to change!

Couples looking for a truly unique venue for their wedding can now choose to say ‘I do’ at a Devonshire Donkey Sanctuary, which has this week been awarded a licence to hold weddings and civil ceremonies.

The charity has a choice of two venues for ceremonies: a formal garden room or the warm and cosy setting of a donkey stable. The headquarters are set in beautiful Devon countryside with stunning views and is home to 500 of the 15,500 donkeys that the charity has provided sanctuary for since forming in 1969. Profits from weddings held will go directly to supporting The Donkey Sanctuary’s projects worldwide.
