Lea Cars Bentley Arnage wedding car at the Shireburn Arms in July

Bride Stephanie Hacking had arranged that Lea Cars’ fabulous royal blue Bentley Arnage would collect husband-to-be Chris Birkett from Accrington as a complete surprise to him. He thought that the best man Tim would be taking them all in his car.

Chris and Tim, with ushers Graham and Graham, were taken to the Shireburn Arms in Hurst Green near Clitheroe for 12.15pm ready for the ceremony at 1.00pm.

Meanwhile Kevin, chauffeur of the Bentley, went to find Stephanie in her hotel room where she was getting ready with her two bridesmaids Chelsea and Claire and with mum Sonya to take some photos.

Kevin was using Chris’ camera and his own too to take lots of photos and also videoing the whole event including the ceremony using Chris’ SD card.

After the ceremony the Bentley took the new Mr and Mrs Birkett for a quiet drive and to Stoneyhurst College for photos and video in the gardens.

“I just wanted to email to say a very big big Thankyou for Friday. My new husband and his friends loved the car and enjoyed their journey to the venue.

I felt really looked after and the driver was so helpful and was so patient throughout the day. I didn’t feel rushed and it was an absolute pleasure to have him involved and I myself loved my little drive in the car. It was a wonderful touch to our day.

We’ve looked back at the video recordings he made and the photos he took and he did a lovely job at capturing all the nice little moments.

I’m so pleased with the service provided and I can’t Thank you enough.

I’d just like to add that you yourself were great with everything from start to finish and was helpful organising myself and times. If I had kept the times I had originally planned we wouldn’t have had time for as many photos and wouldn’t have enjoyed the car for as long as we did. So Thank you”.
