I attend The Wedding Fayre at The Forst of Arden yesterday which ran from 11am to 3pm. I had to be there though for 830am, on a Sunday morning, outrageous! It was a great day though and by far the busiest fayre I have attended to date. Surprisingly though it was a slow start, I didn’t see anyone until about 1145am. But when people did start to arrive enquiries came from far and wide, the best one was for Warwick Castle, would love to get that piece of business! My positioning yesterday was great, I was right by the 18th green, so during the quiet moments I could watch the “wannabe” Sir Ian Poulter’s! To be fair though there was some great shots, the one that’ll stick in my mind though was one gentleman who was about 30 yards from the pin, he….. caught it wrong shall we say…. and the ball went about the twice the distance it should have done and missed the car a couple of foot!
Off I ventured yesterday morning to Walsall and The Holiday Inn at Junction 10. The drive across was great, I’d forgotten how quiet the roads are first thing on Sunday morning. We were given a great spot by the organisers “Not Just Exhibitions” right by the door in one of the main suites, so access to and from the car was great. The flow of brides was excellent from the start at 11am through until around 1pm, the second half was fairly quiet and between 2pm and the finish at 3pm we only spoke to a couple of brides. Enquiries came from far and wide and last night I had my head buried in my Black Country A-Z; Willenhall, Shifnall, Darlaston, Penfields, Tettenhall, Bloxwich…… All in all we were really pleased with our first Wedding Fayre experience! P.S. The tea at the Holiday Inn tastes like coffee, may be it was coffee, it certainly wasn’t tea, may be it was half tea/half coffee!
Friday is always the best day of the week, but today was even better; the arrival of our Regent Landaulet in Black & Ivory. At 8:00pm I had a call from the vehicle transporter to let me know that he was nearly with us! “Hi Dan, just got off the M42 and going past the Belfry now, will be with you in
5 minutes”. No sooner had I put the phone down then around the corner he came. Although it was quite dark the car looked great as it pulled on to the drive. I’m looking forward to going out for a drive tomorrow! Daniel Musson Love Wedding Cars 0121 3785090
As I mentioned in my last blog we believe we have found a gap in the wedding car market. That gap was the type of car on offer, in our local area which is Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, Lichfield, Solihull, Tamworth and Walsall there wasn’t one provider of the Regent wedding car. The Regent is a purpose built wedding car based on a traditional 1920s car. The cars are designed with the modern day wedding in mind and have numerous benefits over traditional wedding cars; they can accommodate up to 6 passengers, much more reliable than any vintage car, wide doors giving great accessibility, part convertible and as they are new cars they can travel any distance. Our first car is now with us and bookings are coming through! We have already taken bookings for December 2012, summer 2013 and even summer 2014! We are passionate about our cars and in the coming weeks we will be exhibiting at several wedding fayres, in the hope of getting our cars on the roads of the West Midlands as often as possible…

We’ve been in the hospitality industry for over a decade, once we decided to diversify our business portfolio we considered several avenues but what appealed to us was the wedding car business. It’s a business we’ve a good knowledge of as a close family friend runs a very successful wedding car business in Manchester. We looked at the wedding car companies in our home town, Sutton Coldfield, and the surrounding area; Birmingham, Lichfield, Solihull, Tamworth and Walsall.
It became apparent to us quite quickly that there was a gap in the market in terms of the cars on offer. Our extensive research also involved meeting with the National Office of Statistics, we were pleased to hear that in the West Midlands the number of marriages was on the increase from 2010 to 2011 and, although somewhat difficult to estimate, they advised that they expected the number to increase again from 2011 to 2012.
