Updates from Portishead Wedding Network and our members...

It's always so lovely that customers appreciate the love that goes into looking after the cars and the hardwork that goes on behind the scenes, thank you to all those customers that take the time to write to us to show that appreciation.

Here are a couple of reviews from recent weddings:

"Thank you all for being amazing!" - Suzie.

"Can't say enough how lovely the Rolls Royce was, it was so comfortable and warm on a cold wet day. A really friendly driver took me to my wedding venue at Old down manor and also stayed until after the ceremony to take the newlyweds for a drive together. He helped me with my dress and made sure I was happy. I'd recommend Spirit Wedding Cars to anyone. Great service." - Stef

"Matthew helped us with our wedding car, he was excellent from start to finish, making sure that he drove the route before the wedding and map up alternate routes just incase there was traffic as the distance between the church and venue was 27 miles. Exceptional value for money and such a beautiful car which you can tell a lot of love goes into. I was very nervous on the day and Matthew made me feel quite at ease so thank you." - Mr and Mrs Way

When thinking about your wedding transport you should always view the cars so that you are clear in your mind how things will look on the day (the car is a very practical element of your special day) and ask questions. All reputable companies will understand how important these details are to you and be only to happy to help.

Questions could include:

  • Can the car(s) be decorated with ribbons and bows to match your colour scheme?
  • What will the driver wear?
  • Will the car(s) be required for other weddings on the day? If so, how long is given between each wedding?
  • Will there be the right size and colour umbrella available, just in case it rains?
  •  Is the car that you decide upon, the one that you will have on the day?
  • Can we use the car for two trips to the church?
  • How many can we seat in each car?
  • Can they accommodate child seats?
  • Do you provide a refreshment pack in the car (water, tissues & mints etc)?
  • Are they aware of any access issues at your venue?
  • Finally always ask for full details of all charges in writing when making the booking.

A great way to see all the various car options available for your wedding is to visit a wedding fayre. Spirit Wedding Car exhibiting at the following upcoming events:

It so lovely when customers think that we have done such a good job that they take the time to write reviews and send us thank you emails.  We have received several of these in August and wanted to share them with you.....

5/5 Star Facebook Review:
Debbie and I would like to say a huge heartfelt thanks to Matthew and his wife at spirit wedding car's for an impeccable service at Amanda & Tom's wedding, absolute consideration and professionalism, they were treated like royalty, we would recommend spirit wedding car's to any couple, without doubt the best choice we could have made to make the day special.


5/5 Star Facebook Review:
Amazing service from day 1 and a simple task to book. They gave their honest opinion on what car would be best suited to our day and I couldn't be happier with our choice. On the day of the wedding Matthew arrived as stated and the car gleaming he was smartly dressed, very friendly and professional. After our ceremony he drove me and my husband to our reception venue. Nothing was too much hassle and he made the drive very relaxing and gave us our time to take it all in! Once arriving at our reception venue he was in no rush to dart off and was very happy to wait until all our photos had been taken. All and all a very pleasant experience and would recommend to any future brides! Mrs Castles x


5/5 Star Facebook Review:
We had the 4 door Beaufort with Matthew as our driver. The car was immaculate and Matthew was very smartly dressed. He could not do enough to make us feel comfortable and was very accommodating when we had pictures with the car after the ceremony. Thank you!

Hi Wendy,
Thanks for Friday, it was great and appreciated by all.
Best wishes,
Kim.


Dear Mathew & Wendy,
Thank you to help making last Friday a very special event.
Pass our thanks also to your Father.
Best Wishes,
Chris & Jeanette Luckhurst

Hi All at spirit wedding cars,
A massive thank you for the lovely car service you gave us on our wedding day! a big sorry for the late thank you but as you can imagine life has been so busy since our big day! we got our photos of the wedding a few weeks ago and everyone complemented us on the car and how it looks. Thanks to the lovely driver as well who made the wedding nerves go away because of his humour and charm! It’s a shame we can't get married everyday so we would use the car!
Thanks to you guys once again!
Paul and Shara Gingell

Last month you found out a little bit more about Matthew in our getting to know series of blog posts, this months it's time to meet Matthew's wife, Wendy.

By day Wendy works as part of the Procurement team at NHS Blood and Transplant in Filton, Bristol. The Procurement team that Wendy works within supports the organisation by ensuring that the front line people providing vital services have the supplies they need to carry out the provision of services to hospitals and patients.

Outside of the day job, Wendy is mum to Jessica (7) and Erin (4) and enjoys days out and holidays with her family.

Within Spirit Wedding Cars Wendy deals with the administration and marketing that comes with the territory of running a business such as accounts, quotations, booking confirmations, website maintenance and wedding fayres. If you telephone, email or message us it will generally be Wendy you liaise with from enquiry to balance payment.

As a family orientated person Wendy understands and appreciates that a wedding is such an important occasion for the whole family and ensures that the customer service and attention to detail matches or exceeds expectations.

Wendy is pictured here at the Portishead Wedding Network Wedding Fayre.

Matthew has a passion for all things car related and is a subscriber to the Top Gear magazine with the latest addition of the magazine accompanying him in the wedding cars to read during the ceremony – (of course this is after cleaning the wedding car if it rains so once again spotless for the newlyweds).

Matthew is a family man with two little girls and therefore appreciates the importance of such a special occasion as a wedding and that is why his attention to detail is second to none.

Matthew is married to Wendy, who you will get the opportunity to get to know later in this series of blogs about getting to know the people behind Spirit Wedding Cars.

In the recent Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards a customer gave the following feedback....

“As soon as we met Matthew we knew we wanted him to be a part of our wedding day. His friendly manner & passion for his cars was clear and he was just what we were looking for. On the day itself, Matthew went out of his way to meet all of our needs; above & beyond all of our expectations.

We felt so privileged to be driven through the streets of Bristol in such a gorgeous (and beautifully presented) car. In the week before the wedding, Matthew drove the route, making sure he knew the best roads to take & timings.

We were totally reassured that I would be where I needed to be and on time! Any queries or emails were answered promptly. Matthew was a valued member of our wedding party.

On initial investigation, Spirit Wedding Cars seemed comparable in terms of price for companies in the area. However once we had contacted Matthew & Wendy, their friendly nature & passion for their cars shone through (prompt & friendly website response; willingness to showcase their cars; talking us through what they offer; family business). There was no question in our minds after that about which company we should go with.”

Matthew is pictured here with the 4 Door Beauford Wedding Car.
