What is your most memorable wedding?
There are so many memorable weddings it's hard to narrow it down to one. But there was a particular wedding, in which a bride was gleefully bouncing up and down on a bouncy castle in the pouring rain...

Describe your typical process with a couple.
A couple will make contact after seeing the cars at a wedding fayre or finding us online. They might use the contact form on the website, social media messaging, or the good old telephone. There are usually quite a few questions from couples for us to answer, which we're more than happy to answer. We never push couples into a decision. We'd rather they take their time to decide. If they decide to go ahead, we ask for a deposit to save the date. Then one month before their big day, we ask for the balance to be paid. About a week before the wedding, we do a 'reckie' of the route and call the couple up to double check times. Then we see them on their wedding day!
What is the most original entrance you have given to a wedding couple?
One of our customers asked if we could drive into the venue, where her guests would be sat waiting. It was in a large warehouse with a shutter door big enough to drive our blue campervan through. After numerous health and safety checks and talking with our wedding insurance, we did it. The guests loved it, and so did the bride!
What is your dream car and why?
I'm lucky enough to already own my dream car. When I was 14 years old, I fell in love with the VW Beetle. I started saving, and managed to buy one at the age of 19, way back in 1990. My first car, a white 1967 VW Beetle deluxe. I still own that same car today!
What would be your No. 1 tip for arriving in style?
Choose a car that reflects your looks and personality. Are you less about showing off and more about being yourself, with your own unique style? On your drive to your ceremony, do you require strangers to smile, point, and say; "Oh my God! Look at the car that bride is travelling in!"? If the answer to these questions is yes, then a cute little vintage volkswagen is for you.
What is your favourite movie car chase?
Well, this SHOULD be any car chase from the 'Herbie' movies, for obvious reasons (for younger readers, this is a film about a white VW Beetle). But my favorite is actually from the film 'The Bourne identity' from 2002, which involves a red mini.
