Mark’s Chauffeur Duties – Saturday 17th July 2010

Mawnan Smith / Falmouth.

Written By: Mark Roberts

On Saturday 17th July, I was invited along with my Mk1 to drive a Bride and her Father to the Church for her wedding day, then the Bride and Groom to their reception.

So it was an early start, cleaning the Capri inside and out, the Bride did ask for the passenger seat to be removed for easy access. Last job was to fit the ribbons (which I had to tighten a couple of times).

I set off to the Bride’s home at Falmouth for 1.30 arrival, after a short wait it was time to open the door for the bride and her Dad and off to Mawnan Smith Church. We arrived at the church with a minute to spare, although the Bride was calm.

I then had 1 hour to wait around which seemed to pass very quickly. I was soon time to leave with the Bride and Groom, this being the most nervous part of the day with 120 guests waving and throwing confetti. “Please start” of course it did and it was off to the reception at The Shed, Falmouth.

Would I do it again? Yes, I probably would, although it was nerve-wracking, it did help that the family were really nice people.
