I got to use my Valiants again as wedding cars – this time I had the privilege of driving Jess to the church for her wedding to Raffaele.
It was raining on and off on the day of the wedding which was annoying as I spent a week detailing both cars ready for the event.
As I turned up at Jess’s home to pick her up it was still raining, but they were taking photos so it did not matter. Once they came out to get into the cars it actually stopped raining and held out till we got to the church.
The ceremony was very enjoyable, especially seeing Raf wearing a cravat which made me think he looked a little like Mike Preston from MasterChef. Jess looked amazing in her wedding dress.
Except she had to squeeze herself with the dress into Raf’s Alfa GTV for the drive to the reception center in the city. There was a slight detour with all the wedding cars, groomsmen and bridesmaids going through the McDonalds drive through on Tapley’s Hill Rd. They ordered nuggets and drinks while the photographer took photos of the cars going through!
I dropped the bridesmaids of at the reception centre and made my way to the top floor of the Topham Carpark for photos of the groomsmen next to the cars.
From there I made my way home as I had an engagement party to attend.
