Lea’s Rolls Royce Corniche in Preston in July for the Blair wedding

The ivory convertible Rolls Royce Corniche of Lea Wedding Cars – which was acquired from Lord Sainsbury – stayed in Preston for the wedding of Gillian King to Stephen Blair in July.

Throughout, chauffeur Richard videoed the event and took dozens of photos on both Steve’s camera and his own.

First the Rolls went to the university area of Preston and collected bridegroom Steve and his best ‘man’, long standing friend, Gayle and took them to St Mary’s Church in Bamber Bridge.

Then the Rolls went to Walton le Dale to collect bridesmaid Emma and mum Kath to take them to the church and then the Rolls retuned to collect bride Gillian and her brother Andrew. There was also a page boy Thomas age five and two flower girls Elizabeth and Imogen both aged two.

After the ceremony which Richard videoed there was mingling, photos and video of the 50 guests and then Richard served champagne to the newlyweds.

Richard then took Mr and Mrs Blair to the Tickled Trout Hotel leaving the church first but arriving last by stopping in a quiet spot for the couple to have some private time together in the car.

“You were simply the best service I have ever received (either professionally or personally) from any company I have ever dealt with.”

We would like to thank Richard and everyone at Lea Cars for making our wedding day so special. It would not have been the same without them.

We chose Lea Cars as they had some lovely cars to choose from. All we wanted was a lovely wedding car and we were delighted with the Rolls Royce. However, the service we got from Richard at Lea Cars was out of this world. We provided Richard with a memory card and he videoed the service for us and also took a lot of photos with my own camera. When that failed, he had a backup camera and took a lot of photos with that too. In addition to all that, he went to the brides house on the morning of the wedding and immediately asked ‘What can I do to help?’ Lea Cars actually care about the people who use them, rather than just doing a job.

In addition the advice before the wedding was exceptional. We didn’t actually know what we wanted, but Richard seemed to know. We went to Lea Cars to hire a wedding car, but got so much more.
