Lea Cars Morris Minor & Jaguar wedding cars at the Inn at Whitewell

Lea Cars fabulous 50 year old Morris Minor 1000 –
known to Richard Lea since it was brand new –
was the bridal car at the wedding of Nicola Townsend to Michael Walton at St John the Baptist Church, Broughton, Preston in July.

The Jaguar Sovereign – almost the same colour as the Morris – was the car for the bridesmaids and was chauffeured by Carole Lea. First Carole took brides mum Janet with her aunt Margaret to the church then took two bridesmaids Carol and Annette with daughters Paige age 8 and Ava age 7 who were the flower girls to the church

Meanwhile the Morris Minor took Nicola and dad Barry to the church.

After the ceremony and some mingling with guests Richard and Carole served champagne and then, with tin cans clattering, the Morris took the couple to the Inn at Whitewell by a detour route so that the guests could arrive first and welcome the couple on arrival with cheers and applause outside.


“Thank you very much for everything you did for us on our wedding day. The cars were fabulous – just what we wanted – and you provided a great service! We had an amazing day –
thank you.”
Nicola and Michael Walton
