Lea Cars Morris Minor wedding car in Nelson & Colne, near Burnley

Driving the Morris Minor all the way from Much Hoole to Nelson and Colne is a great pleasure as long as the other users of the M65 do not mind me driving at 50!

The wedding of Sophie Boast to Aidan Bridge was at Christ Methodist Church in Nelson and the reception was at The Alma Inn in Laneshaw Bridge.

Throughout chauffeur Richard used Sophie’s camera and phone to take photos.


“When we started planning our wedding, we struggled to find a car that we liked, but as soon as we came across Lea Cars’ Morris Minor we knew it was very ‘us’, and after we met Richard, booking it for our wedding was a no-brainer.
From our initial email enquiry, Richard has been nothing but professional, helpful and, perhaps most importantly, friendly and approachable.

He went above and beyond just driving us to the church and reception, from the moment he arrived he was on hand taking photos with our camera.  And not just of us with the car, everything from me and my bridesmaids having our make up done to a few group shots and venue photos too.

This was a really nice touch, as we’ve got some of our own photos to have a look at before our professional ones are ready.  Richard even brought a bottle of champagne for us too!

As for the Morris Minor – we love it! Such a cute car and a bit different from your traditional wedding car! There’s a bit of a history of Morris Minors in the family, and with us getting married in our home town, it was the perfect choice. Thank you Lea Cars for everything you’ve done, we couldn’t recommend you highly enough.”

“Sincere thanks to Lea Cars and Richard our chauffeur for the day on the occasion of our daughter’s wedding yesterday. Richard and his well presented Morris Minor greatly contributed to this memorable weekend. We particularly appreciated the tin cans and that wonderful klaxon.”
