Lea Cars Morris Minor wedding car in Formby and Southport

Lea Cars superb 1964 Morris Minor – Richard Lea used to clean it as a boy when it was new – was a one of the stars at the wedding of Grace Stanford to Tim Coates at the St Michael’s and All Angels Church in Formby on Saturday 30th August.

Quite unusually the fathers of the couple are vicars and jointly conducted the service attended by over 120 guests. A splendid event.

Chauffeur Richard videoed the whole day and took lots of photos on Grace’s camera too. Afterwards Lea Cars sent three DVDs with the edited film of their wedding, dozens of photos, music and a menu all in presentation boxes.

The Morris Minor did two trips to the church with four bridesmaids and mum Samantha and then a third trip with Grace and her dad Mark.

After the ceremony, mingling, photos, video and confetti Richard served champagne to the couple. He then took them to the lovely Botanic Gardens in Southport for photos and video then took them to Meols Hall Tithe Barn where the guests cheered their arrival.

“Thank you so much for your hard work on our special day!! We thoroughly enjoyed looking through all the photos that you had taken on our camera and the ones you have attached also. The Morris minor fitted perfectly with or rustic theme and was decorated beautifully! We look forward to receiving the DVDs and will enjoy looking back on our memories.”

“The DVDs arrived today and are brilliant – a lovely memory to have. Many thanks for including in it what was so special to us”.
