Your Yorkshire Wedding - March/April 2022 (Issue 53)

MAKE IT PERSONAL Your wedding day transport can be another aspect of the wedding that you utilise to reflect your personalities. If you’re music-loving Rockabillies think about a Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Skyliner and Cadillac Coupe deVille. Movie fans? Then go-all out with a James Bondstyle Aston Martin, or John Wick’s Mustang. There’s a whole host of movies to be inspired by so if you need an idea, arrange a date night and get watching! Be sure to check out our inspirational local shoot on page 86 which features a VW Splitscreen Campervan from Mae Dae, we love the bohemian vibes it gives out! CHECK LIST ❤ Saftey – always work with a reputable supplier who can look after the insurance and safety guidance for you! Some vintage cars don’t have seat belts – great for not creasing the dress but not great for little ones travelling with you. ❤ Extras – having your favourite bottle of bubbles, music of your favourite songs, colour matching ribbons etc are all ways to personalise your vehicle. Check what the supplier can and cannot suply and whether you are allowed to BYOB? ❤ Space – how many adults are travelling? Who’s sharing with who? If there’s a change over, i.e. the wedding couple come back in the car the bridesmaids were in, then don’t forget to arrange alternative transport for the bridesmaids to get to the second venue – you can’t leave them at the church! ❤ Backup – this is where hiring a professional company will be worth it’s wait in gold, as they will have more than one car and chauffeur in the event of unforeseen circumstances! Yes, taking your friend up on the offer of driving you is a nice idea, but you don’t want that stress on the day if they can’t do it, the car’s broken down or they now have Covid! ❤ Plan – check out routes, is there road works, allow time for running late and hold ups, yes your car hire company will do this, but will your guests? Remind them! PSSST DID YOU KNOW? Established in 1990 in Huddersfield, Cartwright’s Courtesy Cars provides a superior chauffeur driven service for all occasions.
