I am a retired schoolteacher, although I still keep my hand in as I am a governor and spend 1 day a week working with children. I have taught in Primary, Secondary and Tertiary. I have worked in Industry and Commerce and also spent a number of years owning my own dress shop and coffee shop.
I have two married daughters, my eldest lives quite close and is Mum to my gorgeous grandson who at the age of 9 is a Karting champion. My youngest daughter lives in Spain (lucky lady)
NB (2013) She is now living in Dubai and teaching out there. I miss her terribly.
I manage my own web site which I thoroughly enjoy. There are three official photographs of the cars but the weddings etc I take myself and I always ask permission to put any photos on the web. I have taken lots of photos and have had to create another gallery3 page. Despite the 'not so good summer' 2012 we did manage to bring sunshine to a great number of weddings.
I am a member of the FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) Crewe and Nantwich Branch of which I am Vice Chair. I am also a member of the Crewe Branch U3A where I am learning Spanish - all good fun. I am also learning German as it is taught in my Grandson's school where I am a Governor
I hope you will find my Links page useful. All the services I can recommend personally. They are companies that I have worked with (dealt with) who can offer the same level of professionalism and attention to detail and at the same time give friendly and courteous service too.
I consider I have a wealth of experience relating to all aspects of Wedding Transport. Nothing is left to chance. We usually carry out a pre wedding run on the Wednesday evening before the weekend or if a mid week wedding at least three days before. We do advise you of this and if possible call at the house of Bride's departure and may meet the Bride but in most cases it is the parents, in which case, we introduce ourselves and confirm arrangements for the day. This is particularly important when carrying out double trips, ie who goes first and at what time.
Talking of double trips. They aren't always possible if the distance between picking up bridal party and taking to the ceremony venue whether it be Civil or Church is more than 3/4 miles. Very often even the most organised itinery can suffer through unforseen circumstances occuring. When you come to see us to book your wedding we explain this to you. We build into our itinery a time slot of extra 15 - 30 minutes. For us this is particularly important if we are travelling to pick the Bride up who is at least 20 plus miles away and we have to navigate country roads where we can be held up by tractors and trailers. which reduces our speed to well below the road limit. When a civil ceremony takes place, very often the registrar and marriage officers are on a strict time scale because their remit is to carry out more than one ceremony and if the second or third ceremony is at two venues miles apart then they probably work on the basis of a 20 minute extra time slot. This I know from speaking to them personally.
Time has flown and I have been a little remiss in not keeping up my blog. This year is fast becoming another busy year.I meet some really lovely people, that is the most wonderful aspect to our Wedding Business. I now have a Wedding Fayre Page and have attended two very successful ones met lots of lovely couples and took bookings for Christmas Weddings. I had a lovely couple who booked my cars recently, they said they loved my website and reading all about me and what we have had to do to ensure a wedding went without a hitch. Yes I can assure you we really do everything we possibly can to make your day so very special. Bye for now. Gill
