Victoria's first wedding.
11th May 2013
We have recently acquired a lovely 1939 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith - which we have named Victoria. The story of Victoria as far as we are concerned starts with doing business with an excellent agency called First Choice Wedding cars. During the course of conversation it transpired that the lady who runs the agency lost her father 2 years ago and the car had been laid up since then. We went to have a look at the magnificent machine and decided that with some TLC it would be an ideal addition to our fleet. It had covered only a small mileage since a very major engine rebuild so became an attractive proposition. The owner was realistic about valuation so a deal was done and Victoria passed into our ownership.
The website was updated with a description and pictures and within 12 hours we had taken two bookings which illustrates how much appeal this imposing machine has on our clients ! – click here for further info on Victoria.

St Ann's Manor: Yet another busy fair that produced bookings for us - no doubt helped by some good weather for a change !
20th January 2013
Frimley Hall Hotel: In spite of the dire weather (snow/sleet all day!!) all the exhibitors and a surprising number of brides turned up to this fair and we all had a good day.
6th January 2013
CANTLEY HOUSE HOTEL WOKINGHAM: Very busy fair and we took a number of bookings and had decent weather for a change.
BRACKNELL HILTON: Even busier fair (Prestige Wedding Fairs again!) which resulted in bookings for us - one young lady was so impressed she burst into emotional tears whilst completing her booking !
11th November 2012
The Wellington Country Hotel fair went very well yesterday - we had a steady supply of brides all through the day which generated a good supply of leads. The next one in March promises to be even better!
28th October 2012
Yet another triumph for Prestige Wedding Fairs on the 28th October at Beaumont Estate in spite of the weather! Over 100 brides through the door and we took our share of bookings through the day. Keep up the good work!
14th October 2012
Sheraton Skyline was a very well organised up-market fair with a very good flow of brides. We have every confidence that this fair will grow into one of the finest in the area.
7th October 2012
Englemere: Good throughput of brides and a superbly organised fair - we await the bookings which will inevitably follow !
30th September 2012
Frimley Hall Hotel: Very well attended fair with lots of brides, super fashion show and a good selection of exhibitors. We took a lot of bookings - more than we have achieved at a wedding fair for 25 years!
23rd September 2012
Farnham Maltings: Absolutely dreadful day with pouring rain that did not stop but neither did it stop a very large number of brides from attending. Another super event well organised by Prestige Wedding Fairs!
Reading Hilton: As usual we had a steady stream of brides through the door that gave us a good opportunity to market our product. I bet the opposition would love to know how Prestige Wedding Fairs are so consistently successful.
16th September 2012
Just got back from another excellent wedding show at Northcote House Sunninghill organised by Prestige Wedding Fairs. A good flow of brides through the door, an excellent fashion show and great interest shown in our two cars Charles and Beatrice.

After a busy summer we are back on the wedding fair circuit: for details see the right hand side of the is page.

Another great wedding fair, this time at the Bracknell Hilton
Defeated by the weather: snow and freezing conditions has made Hedsor House inaccessible. The wedding fair will be rescheduled for later in the year.
Just got back from another super wedding show at The Reading Hilton. Lots of brides attended, the weather was good and it was another super day courtesy of Prestige Wedding Fairs.
23rd January 2012
We attended the St Ann's Manor wedding fair yesterday and it was great. A constant flow of brides through the door and an excellent selection of exhibitors. There was a very good level of interest in our cars and we are very hopeful this will result in some bookings. Well done Prestige Wedding Fairs and we look forward to another good one at the Reading Hilton next Sunday 29th January.

Major revamp of this website. We have tried to keep the look of the site essentially the same but have bought the underlying technology into the 21st century. To the credit of the previous designers the website has functioning pretty well in spite of designed in the late 1990's!
We have added a number of pages, brief details are given below:
Testimonials: exactly what it says on the can! Just a small selection of the testimonials received over the last few years.
Advice: some points for brides to consider when selecting their bridal vehicle.
Newsroom: this page.
Film and commercial photographic work: over the years our cars have appeared in a fair number of films and TV shows - this page gives brief details.
We have a clever bit of software that tests the site - below are our test scores after the re-vamp. There is still work to do, but we are pretty happy with these results!
23rd Dec to 2nd Jan
Hope everyone had a Happy Christmas and New Year's. Like almost everyone else we ate and drank to much!
