Your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding - Jul-Aug 2023 (Issue 70)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Churchtown Wedding Cars is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary. The company was established in 1993, and in 2015 current owners Steven and Laura bought the business from founders Roy and Pat. The pair initially took on their beautiful silver Beaufort Tourer, but having expanded the fleet since then, they can now also offer two Imperial Landaulettes and a 1975 VW Camper. Laura says, “We’re a small family-run business and we’re so proud to reach this milestone. We’d like to thank all of our brides and grooms, past and present, for letting CWC be part of their wedding days, and we hope to continue delivering our fantastic service for many more years to come. It’s an honour to work alongside so many other like-minded wedding industry professionals and like them, we thrive on our reputation and word-of-mouth recommendations.
