The cars are also available for special occasions (birthday parties, anniversarys etc)
When Sarah and Andy purchased the Jaguar Sarah came up with the idea that it would make a lovely car for a wedding. This then got the cogs going in both their minds and the decision was made to commence Old, New and Blue Wedding Cars. Back in lockdown 2020, the Jaguar made her primary appearance at the First wedding.
Since Sarah was a very young girl she has always dreamed of having a VW Beetle so the search was on. When they found this one for sale there was no question about it, they were going on a long trip up towards Halifax to bring her home! She is currently undergoing restoration work and will hopefully be out on weddings in the very near future.
The Beauford was the third purchase as they felt that Old, New and Blue needed something that gave it the WOW factor. Another early start this time to pick the Beauford from Evesham. The Beauford is originally a convertible with a soft top hood, but they decided with the weather being so unpredictable in Pembrokeshire that they would get a removable Hard top custom made for her. With a wedding just a few weeks away they didn’t think that the hard top would be ready in time so were praying for a nice dry day, unfortunately with the forecast looking a bit unsettled the pressure was on to get the hard top ready, cutting it very fine on the Friday night the final fitting took place and the car was ready to go.
Back in the 1960’s Sarah’s mum (Dorothy) owned a Triumph Herald which was her pride a joy but when she met Sarah’s Dad (Donald) they decided to sell her as they didn’t need two cars.
During a conversation with Andy one evening Sarah happened to mention that she would love to ger a Triumph Herald like the one her mum owned. Andy was straight on the case searching for one as close as possible even down to the colour. Within a few weeks Andy found this one, A long, wet drive down to St Austell meant they were able to bring back the car and surprise Dorothy.
The Triumph had seats had been modified so they decided to restore it back to the original, found some old seat which needed reupholstering so off they went to a lady in Newcastle Emlyn. With a wedding fast approaching the race was on to get the seats back in time. Thursday evening the phone rang, the seats were ready which meant a busy day on Friday getting them fitted to the car.
Well, where do we begin… the story behind how we ended up with the Rolls Royce was a stressful but interesting one!
Originally Andy fell for a Bentley up in Cheshire, Rang the owner, sorted out deposit and was waiting for it to pass MOT. Unfortunately, there was an issue with the car, they were waiting for parts to turn up. With a wedding getting closer by the day Andy was getting nervous as all four cars were booked. 10 days before the wedding Andy had the phone call he was waiting for the car was ready to be picked up. So off they went up to Cheshire, he then spent days cleaning and polishing the car ready to go but then the worst thing happened the engine wasn’t running right! On the phone to the previous owner it was agreed that his mechanic would come down and look at the car. One week before the wedding it was decided the car needed to go back up to Cheshire to be fixed. Parts were ordered and we were just to sit and wait, days went by and the part still had not turned up. Andy, Sarah and the owner then came to the decision that they would swap cars for the Rolls Royce. Thursday came which meant another long trip up to Cheshire to get the new car only gave us one day to get her in perfect condition and dressed ready for the wedding on Saturday Morning.
