What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
When booking wedding transport, I would advise not to leave it too late! If you see something you like, book it! During spring and summer we get incredibly busy. We hate having to disappoint couples when we are already booked!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The bride booked three of our vehicles to carry all the immediate bridal party, but in addition, she also booked a white double decker bus to carry all of her guests from the church to the reception. Three white VW's and a white double decker (ribboned), brilliant!

What is the most original entrance you have given to a wedding couple?
One of our brides, booked one of our wedding cars for the practical wedding transport (to and from the church), but when we arrived at the entrance to the reception venue, the groom surprised the bride with his banger racing car which he had resprayed in the wedding colours and personalised with their names. Richard assisted the bride and helped her climb onto the bonnet of the banger car, whilst her groom drove her slowly to the main doors, where the guests awaited.
