Butterflies:

We supply large colourful butterflies for Weddings and Funerals. The Butterflies we offer are mainly the very large Monarch Butterflies approx 4-5 inch wingspan, then the large Purple Emperor’s and Swallowtail type butterflies approx. 3-4 inch wingspan. We can also supply medium sized butterflies like the Red Admirals, Painted Ladies, Peacocks, Tortoiseshells and small and Large White butterflies approx. 2-2½ inch wingspan.

Some Butterflies are available most of the year and some are seasonal.  Availability from 1st March – 31st October. Sometimes, also on mild winter days.

The ones we recommend and find best are the British Monarchs butterflies (A Rare British Migrant Butterfly), these are far superior to any other type of Butterfly because of their size, colour and the way they glide and float around your guests.  Then the next best ones are the Swallowtails, Purple Emperor’s, Camberwell Beauties  as they have a slow gliding/flapping flight and when released  they tend to hang around and settle on flowers or anything brightly coloured so people can photograph them if required. Watching these ones in flight is an eye to be hold and a truly amazing experience.

There are others types of butterflies which are also very attractive and may suit you better depending on what colours you prefer. These include Painted Ladies, Red Admirals (both of these are common migrant butterflies), British Butterflies: Peacocks and Tortoiseshell butterflies also very colourful, but these four butterflies are considerably smaller, and have a strong powerful, rapid flight and tend to go like the wind and can sometimes be difficult to observe when released.

(Camberwell Beauty)

Mourning Cloaks have a slow gliding/flapping flight. When released they tend to settle on flowers or anything brightly coloured, making them easy to photograph. Also known as the Camberwell Beauty.

Very popular for Funeral Releases, but only available in the Summer Months.


Please note: We do our best to meet your requirements if they are in season but cannot always guarantee a certain type of Butterfly. Sometimes we might send you a mixture of different types or sometimes different ones to the ones you asked for.
