2 Brides - Horses, Carriage And Our Beauford Tourer At Burbage Carnival

Another wedding today in the beautiful Charnwood Forest. The Beauford was used to transport Melissa & Emma to a rendezvous with a horse drawn carriage which took the couple to the wedding ceremony at the Link Hotel. The Hotel is on a main road into Loughborough but it was fairly quiet for the "romantic" carriage ride following the ceremony. The witnesses followed in the Beauford. This was our first same sex wedding following the change from civil partnerships a few months ago. The couple booked the car 18months ago, not realising at the time that they would be officially attending their marriage ceremony.

The splendidly turned out horses and carriage made for an amazing spectacle. I didn't catch the business name but from Mansfield. I think our car fitted in quite well! Melissa & Emma certainly enjoyed a wonderful day.

A very different use of the Beauford today. It was Burbage carnival and we were required to head up the procession with Cruella Deville and 101 Dalmations. Lynn stood in the back of the car for the whole 1 1/4hr journey whilst ably performing the part. It transpired she had travelled in the car 12 years ago on her wedding day! Really tricky driving at walking pace. Lots of use of the clutch and freewheeling but we made it to the cheers of hundreds of villagers along the route.
