Colin our modified S2 Land Rover has had a new suit! As a special treat to mark Colin’s retirement from long service moving boats he has been treated to a full re-paint and a good clean. he is now looking his very best and has already been booked for weddings in 2017. Colin still wears his sailing heritage with a special roof made from a sail which complements the white seats and now very bright paintwork. So why not be different and a bit more daring on your special wedding day in Devon and let Colin get you to the church on time.
Our lovely classic white mini had it’s first outing as a wedding car last week. Father of the bride came to collect the car for a 3 day hire for a wedding in Somerset. I have to say Jon was not altogether keen on driving an classic mini on a 70 mile journey from Devon to Somerset but when he came back he was all smiles and the little car had completely won him over. I understand the happy couple had their honeymoon in Italy – so the Italian job lives on eh?!
Sunday 26th May we had a show stand at Beautiful Dartington Hall for a wedding open day (the main show is in April and not to be missed). This was a smaller gathering showing off the magnificent great hall with a few invited wedding suppliers displaying a variety of great ideas for that special day. We had Meryl the Morris Minor on display outside and a show stand inside. I got talking to a chap who came over to our stand. He told me he had a classic car and that he had chauffeured a few weddings just for friends, perhaps I would I be interested in taking his car on as part of our wedding car business? I had no idea what to expect, these conversations often end with a Morris Marina. But this time Andrew handed me a photo of his breathtaking DB5. Well I didn’t take much persuading! We are delighted to include this magnificent classic as part of our wedding fleet. Now we really can offer everything from the nostalgic fun of a Morris Minor, the graceful opulence of a classic Rolls Royce and the iconic James Bond Aston Martin DB5.
So now you really can make your great day a classic.
Give us call on 07918715039 anytime and we can help plan that special wedding transport.
Our old Ford Zodiac classic car was the star of a special training film shot in Gloucester this week. We had the full film crew with 2 camera men including a special ‘drone’ for overhead shots (we can publish a few film clips later) a sound man who spent most of the time lying on the back seat tying to stay out of sight and a director pulling it all together. The presenter had to get used to driving a 1964 car with no power steering but by the end of the day he loved the old car even if his arms ached! The Zodiac is a rare and unusual old car, an English interpretation of American flamboyance. The Zodiac makes a unique wedding carriage especially teamed up with our Triumph Herald or our Morris Minor. Classic cars always make a great talking point at any occasion, everyone will certainly remember your big entrance and sight of the Bride and Groom driving away in a beautiful old English classic car will always make a great memory of a classic day. take a look at http://www.devonclassicweddingcars.co.uk for full details of a ever growing range of great classic and unusual wedding cars.
