Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Prompt; Polite; Pleasing; Popularly Priced; but most importantly: Professional
What about your business are you most proud of?
For always putting a huge smile on the faces of not only the married couple but also the guests that adore this fantastic car.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
You may think booking your wedding 12-18 months in advance is too early. Believe me when I tell you of the disappointment I hear when people ring to book only 3-6 months from their wedding date to find venues, churches, registries, transport all previously booked is very sad.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
In 2014, I had a wedding where the couple were going to Florida for their honeymoon as they were big Disney fans. The bride's mother had organised two people to turn up at the church inside full costume of Mickey and Minnie (see pic on my website) Pity for them it was the hottest day of the year inside those outfits but a nice touch!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After initial contact of sorting price and availability; what is their colour theme and do they want ribbons/flowers in car to match. If the ceremony is within 10 minutes drive from Bride's pick-up address would you like me to take Mother/Bridesmaids first. Do you have a cd you would like to hear on your ride? If there are young children to come with us, what ages are they and do they need booster seats.
What is the most original entrance you have given to a wedding couple?
To provide the car for a Nepalese wedding with all their wonderful brightly coloured traditional outfits and to arrive at the venue with more than 500 guests attending that had never seen a classic full-size American convertible before. Great day!
What is your dream car and why?
The beautiful Oldsmobile I already have. I wouldn't swap it for anything.
What would be your No. 1 tip for arriving in style?
On a lovely summer's day: top down, married couple with some bubbly and their favourite tune playing on my 6 speaker Hi-Fi system as we sweep into venue with guests, cameras in hand, snapping away, big smiles and justifiably jealous as hell!
What is your favourite movie car chase?
No surprises here: Bullitt; French Connection; Seven Ups; and Ronin.
