Lea Cars Mercedes Limousine wedding car in Burnley in November

Lea Cars classic 7-passenger Mercedes Limousine matched the classic army mess dress of bridegroom Damon Hill when he married Gemma Cocker at Burnley Registry Office in November.

Chauffeur Richard took 124 photos of the whole event – he was the official photographer – as well as filming it too – and chauffeured and served champagne. All for the price of £250!

The Mercedes first took 5 people – bridesmaid Emily, three flower girls Olivia Paige, Bella Rose and Poppy age 5, 3 and 2 plus Gemma’s mum Susan to the Registry Office from Briarfield then returned for Gemma and her dad Dave.

After the ceremony and some photos and filming the couple and all the guests went to Townley Hall for more photos and filming. Then went to Lowerhouse Cricket Club for the reception.

Afterwards Richard sent a USB memory stick of photos and three DVDs (2 were Blu-ray) to the couple for them to treasure. The DVDs were £100 extra.


“Thank you for sending those photos so far. We are very excited to see the outcome.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your efforts and professionalism throughout our day. You were very part of it and made things very easy for us. The car was fantastic and the way you did business was like I said, very professional. So thank you very much”

“I and Gemma enjoyed the best day of our lives and you made it all the more enjoyable with your car and service.

The Mercedes limo was definitely a great choice. A superb classic and kept to an immaculate standard. The car was extremely comfortable and had plenty of room which turned out perfect as Gemma’s dress was huge. The champagne was a great compliment, as was the service that came from its chauffeur…… you!!

You were outstanding. You made us feel like we have known you longer than we actually do. You made my wife comfortable from the off. This I found extremely important as it was such a big part of the day with such little worries.

The outcome of the pictures was great as was the fabulous DVD. Nice touch with the key memory stick with the pictures on by the way.

From both of us we are very grateful and completely happy with the service you provided, both leading up to and the day itself. You will be a top recommendation!
Thank you very very much!”

Mr & Mrs Damon and Gemma Hill
