Lea Cars Jaguar Sovereign wedding car at Samlesbury Hall in February

In addition to driving, Lea Cars chauffeur Mike Parkinson took 46 photos on his camera and filmed all the ceremony and the speeches when Vicky Callagher married John Hoole at Samlesbury Hall in February.


“We had the most perfect day yesterday. Richard and his team were very professional from the first contact we had with one another. On our first meeting it was a wet autumn day and Richard had the car ready and waiting for us to view, we booked on the spot. Leading up to the day Richard and I had a lengthy conversation about the exact timings of the day and other details we needed to finalise. Richard was always happy to answer any questions and nothing was too much for him.

On the morning of our wedding our beautiful Jaguar Sovereign arrived on time with colour coordinated ribbons.
Our chauffeur, Michael, was absolutely amazing. He was not only our driver for the day but we also felt like we had a personal assistant! He helped me get into the car and held my dress and flowers. During the journey I’m sure Michael could see my nerves building and helped to make me feel at ease offering kind words of support. When exiting the car, Michael supporting me in this by holding my dress and telling me when I had touched the ground – it’s the little things!

My husband and I went for a short drive after the ceremony and again Michael kept professional and gave us the time we needed to take it all in as a new husband and wife. We had the ceremony and speeches recorded and Michael seemed to fade into the background and we ‘forgot’ he was there! I cannot thank you enough for the service we received from you, you helped to make our day perfect!”

“We received and watched the DVD last night. It was lovely to re-live the day once more and we are looking forward to sharing it with family members and my Grandma who was unable to make the wedding. And the photos on the DVD and on the stick are great too. Thanks again”.
