Melbourne, July 13 (ANI): Wedge-tailed eagles are now the latest accessories at weddings in Gold Coast, Australia.
According to the Gold Coast Bulletin, a wedge-tailed eagle has been trained to swoop down the aisle over the heads of astonished guests to deliver the wedding rings to the best man or groom.
"Ten years after you've been to a wedding you won't remember the food that you ate, but you will remember if an eagle flew in," News.com.au quoted Zanna Carey from Broadwings Events as saying.
The eagle can perform its fly-in trick at weddings in churches, on beaches or in garden locations, and the rings are clipped to leather straps tied to its legs.
All the best man or groom has to do is raise a gloved hand with a scrap of meat in it at the right moment during the ceremony, and the handler releases the bird. (ANI)
