All the best laid plans....

03-15-2018

When we are part of a wedding we carry out recces of the pick up and drop off points, the wedding venue and the reception. We drive the routes to ensure we leave enough time to get were we need to go. We work out alternative routes just in case there is an incident en route.

One glorious Saturday afternoon I collected the bride and her father from the Bridge Inn at Walshford just outside Wetherby.

Off we went to the Harrogate registry office where she duly got married as planned without incident.

After the photos were taken everyone jumped in their cars and started off back to the Bridge Inn for the Wedding Breakfast.

I know the traffic in Harrogate is horrendous at the best of times but today seemed to be stationary. Some thing serious must have happened. An Ambulance went passed then another then the police. Then we got the phone call. There has been an accident up ahead and the brides son has been injured.

I negotiated my way through the traffic and got to the accident scene where the bride saw her son on a spinal board being placed in the Ambulance.

To cut a long story short, line of stationary traffic hit from behind at speed by inattentive driver.

All well that ends well. They saved him some cake.

Different flights

Throughout the year we do many private jet and helicopter pick ups from airports around the country including Leeds Bradford International, Durham Tees Valley, Humberside, Robin Hood at Doncaster and occasionally the odd field or two.

The Mighty Mustang

03-15-2018

One wedding we did last year which stood out for me personally was one where I got to drive one of my all time favourite cars, a 1969 fastback Mustang.You don't need in car entertainment when you have the sound of a V8 at your disposal.

The mustangs turned heads and made small children cry where ever we went. What a beast!!!!!

The theme for the wedding was a Pulp Fiction meets Reservoir Dogs so obviously we had to done the appropriate attire as you would expect.
