The old girl

Published on

We received the following letter from a newlywed couple who recently hired our 1949 Bedford OB vintage bus for their wedding.

"As a treat for ourselves and our wedding guests we hired your single decker vintage bus to transport us from [the wedding to the reception].

The purpose of this letter is to let you know just how much we enjoyed the novelty of this journey, and to advise that it was made even more special by the driver.  From the minute your lovely old bus chugged under the arch into the grounds of [the hotel], we were all excited about the forthcoming journey - even though some guests were a little apprehensive about the gradient of the High Hunsley road.  However, [the driver] lovingly and carefully coaxed "the old girl" up the hill, to cheers and applause from us all, and from thereon the rest of the journey continued smoothly.

The return journey was helped along by our singing, which was accompanied by one of our guests playing his ukelele, and your driver was more than happy to co-operate when our photographer asked for the obligatory photo stop on Beverley Westwood.  The whole experience was really wonderful, and gave our wedding celebrations the slightly unusual kickstart we had hoped for.

We would like to put on record our complete satisfaction of the vintage coach hire, and also the fact that we were so very delighted with the services of [the driver].  Nothing was too much trouble for him, and thanks to him, our wedding day went off without a single hitch.

Once again, many many thanks for an excellent service."

Congratulations Mr & Mrs F, and may you have a long and happy life together - EYMS
