… where do they all come from? Asked The Beatles. Well, the East Midlands it seems, as our couples, almost without exception, have been the loveliest of people, which makes what we do feel like anything but work! And our latest couple, Christina & Ricky are no exception, as they were genuinely lovely and it was a real delight being a part of their day.
We were first contacted by Christina in 2016, as she’d decided she wanted a London Taxi as her wedding transport, and then she set out to find one. As Betty is the only white London Taxi wedding car in the area, she naturally discovered us, even though at that time we’d only been in existence a few months! Because we offer the option to take Betty to the couples for them to see her, we got to meet Christina and future hubby Ricky at their home. They obviously liked Betty and booked her there and then for their wedding at one of our favourite wedding venues, the stunning Hazel Gap Barn.
Their wedding date was the 5th of May 2018, which coincidentally was one of my BIG birthday dates, although I didn’t tell them that until after the wedding, as the day was all about them and quite rightly. Because of that connection though, this wedding on this date had been at the back of my mind ever since the booking date, and I couldn’t wait to share my big day with them!
The details of the venues changed slightly during the interim period, but we were hired to take the Bridal party from their new accommodation, a lovely lakeside lodge, to Hazel Gap Barn in time for the ceremony.
They were blessed by the weather, as it was warm and sunny, and after some photos by the lake at the Lodge, we took the Bridesmaids, Flower Girl, and Mother of the Bride to the venue and they all looked gorgeous in their dresses.
Next it was the turn of the beautiful Bride and her very friendly Father, and it would be more difficult to find a more relaxed and unstressed Bride than Christina, who took the whole thing in her stride!
We always try to please and do our bit to make the couple’s day special, but it’s very satisfying when you get positive feedback from them. This particular review from Christina has us almost blushing!
“Outstanding service from the beginning until the end!! My husband and I got married on 5th May 2018 and we used Betty to transport myself and my bridal party from our accommodation to our wedding venue. Ever since our first encounter with Andy and Betty we felt reassured and completely looked after. Out of all of the wedding suppliers we used, Andy was the most genuine and kindest supplier and provided first class service from the booking procedure right up until taking us on our big day and he even sent us a few photos after. Andy thought of all the fine details to ensure we were comfortable and Betty was dressed with beautiful flowers and ribbons. I would highly recommend this service to anybody. It wasn’t just a mode of transport but it was a truly enjoyable experience and we wish Andy and Betty every success in the future. Thank you to white taxi weddings for making our day even more special.”
So in the end, everyone was happy which doesn’t get any better, does it?
