Hey Guys, we wanted to say a huge huge thank you for everything you did for us before and on our wedding day.
As you know, Darren and I actually live and work in Australia and so were planning our wedding from afar. From the moment we called Dave, we knew we had made the right choice in hiring the minis. Dave, you couldn’t have been more relaxed and helpful to us, and from that first phone call, we knew we were going to have a lot of fun! We really appreciated that you were so accommodating in doing all of the preparation by email.
We knew that you would have everything in hand, but to then realise that you had done a full reccy of the city and venues beforehand really put our minds at ease. It’s not easy planning the logistics of a wedding in a major city the Saturday before Christmas. You guys took the transport out of our hands and made sure we could just enjoy our day.
The morning of the wedding was so much fun. You had no problems in going a bit further afield to pick the boys up first, and they had a lot of fun traveling into the city. There was even an unexpected benefit to the modifications you’d made to the white one (taking the front seat out to make room for the bride’s dress) when we realised we could put our 6’7” tall best man, who had a broken leg at the time, in there!!! Then when the girls were ready to be picked up from the city centre, you were ready and waiting for us. It was so lovely to meet Steve and Kerry before we got into the cars. They were so friendly and lovely and really helped us all relax and have fun.
Having our own music played in the car was such a personal touch. Hearing the Rocky theme tune blaring while racing through the city, sitting in the back of the white one with my dad, was one of the best experiences of the day for me! Coming out of Nottingham City Council House after our wedding was one of the next best experiences. You had left the cars on the market square (I’m not entirely sure you were allowed to do that!) and they were certainly drawing a crowd! As we left the building, we got a HUGE round of applause from everyone who had gathered round, and there you guys were, ready and waiting with smiles and personalised champagne for us! You then took Darren and I and our photographers to go and get some personal photos taken and driving through the city and up to the castle was so much fun! We were still trying to drink our champagne as you nipped all through the city (special thanks to Kerry for having loads of tissues available!) and I cannot wait to see the shots that the photographers got of the cars up at the castle!
Having the minis and you guys there for us that morning really set the tone of the day, the exact atmosphere we wanted – LOADS of FUN! Everyone is still talking about it and we’ve received so many compliments, I don’t know what to do with myself! Thank you so much for everything you did. We would recommend you guys in a heartbeat. Who wants big limos and horse-drawn carriages to take them to their wedding when you can have the Italian Job Minis and the best fun we’ve had all year!?!?!
Loads of Love, The Pegrams xxx
