Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Leicestershire Wedding Venue Sutton Bonington Hall for allowing me to use the venue as a backdrop for some shots of a beautiful car yesterday. Scott & Kerrie Munton from Leicestershire Wedding Car Hire Company Pink My Bride have lovingly restored a 1978 Daimler Sovereign and she is now affectionately named “The Dame”.
As Wedding Cars go, the Daimler Sovereign has long been favoured as the car of choice, but Scott & Kerrie like to think that their “Dame” is just that little bit different to the usual white ribboned-up Jaguar. The 1978 Daimler Sovereign LWB is a whole 4″ longer than the Jaguar XJ6, giving the rear occupants that little bit of extra legroom, and making the journey a more comfortable one. The car was favoured in its heyday by the Royal Family, Heads of State, Politicians and other VIPs, and commanded a price tag 15% heftier than the Jaguar due to the amount of leather upholstery and the quality of the trim. Both cars used the same body shell and were powered by the reliable and silky smooth 4.2 litre petrol engine coupled with a 3 speed automatic transmission and a wonderful independent rear suspension system.
Pink My Bride’s “Dame” (HWR 552T) was originally built in Coventry, finished in Old English White with Russet Red leather. For the 2011 season, Scott and Kerrie have completely re-commissioned her in pearlescent Candy Pink coachwork, with contrasting Dove Grey Full Leather interior making her a very unique and stunning looking Daimler indeed. I travelled in the front of the car to Sutton Bonington yesterday and can vouch for her ability to attract attention as she turned the heads of pedestrians and other road users every yard of the way there. She also has an amazing sound/media system installed allowing you to watch content on the rear screens that are installed into the rear of the front seats.
Pink My Bride are extremely flexible, offering a bespoke service to suit your requirements and Scott and Kerrie will go that extra mile to accommodate special requests. You even get the choice of either a male or female chauffeur on your special day and in full uniform of course!
They also have other Jaguar cars available in order to satisfy larger requirements if you wish to expand on the traditional package, these cars can be available to transport your special guests to the reception venue. If you love the look of this special car as much as I do and would like to contact Scott & Kerrie to discuss your requirements in more detail, they can be contacted on 01455 207988 or 07852 276234.
