How much do you charge?
Our standard charge for a wedding within The Forest of Dean starts at £300. Our ‘boundary’ is loosely formed by a triangle drawn between Lydney, Coleford and Cinderford. Any location beyond this will incur an additional charge. We are happy and able to offer what we feel will be a very competitive price for areas such as Ross on Wye, Hereford , Cheltenham, Gloucester , Bristol and Abergavenny and South Wales. Please be aware that our Hudson is a very old girl and whilst being in first class condition she is rather thirsty!
Beyond our ‘general areas’ mentioned above, we may need to make special arrangements to be able to attend your wedding or event which will involve additional expenses but....Please ask because we are always happy to price for much further distances and we do want our car to be part of your Special Day!
What's your service like?
We always undertake to do only one wedding function per day, per vehicle so please, be assured of our very personal service and level of attention to making YOUR Special Day, very special indeed! We like to arrive at the Brides location with an hour to spare of the agreed departure time. Usually Bob will perform a ‘recce’ mission long before the Wedding Day and will also closely liaise with the Bride and her family on the route to be taken to the wedding and also then onto the reception venue. On arrival at the reception venue the car will be parked and ample time will be allowed for other guests such as interested Uncles and assorted other folk to have a good look over our beautiful car. If asked for at the ‘planning meeting’ beforehand, I am also happy to give a short ‘pleasure ride’ around the village or location to anybody that may wish one. We often find elderly relatives such as Granny and Grandad may well have very fond memories from long ago of cars such as ours and we’ll always do our best to accommodate them and their memories!
What will the driver be wearing?
Bob will be dressed in ‘period’ clothes for the car: 1940's suit, shirt, tie and shoes… and a hat! Unless of course you wish otherwise? If so, please ask!
How will the car look on the day?
Our wonderful Hudson Commodore 6 Sedan will look even more beautiful on your Special Day! She will be wearing garlands of flowers on the front bumper and in the back window and fresh real flowers inside. There will also be a complimentary Bottle of Champagne (or a Non-Alcoholic drink should you prefer?) and 2 glasses’ provided .White (or a colour of your choice?) Satin Ribbons will also of course be flown. All of the colour combinations and flowers etc can be tailored to your personal preference so please ask!
What do we need to do now?
Please contact us with your provisional date and we can take things from there! We will then arrange a meeting and you are of course welcome to come and view our car beforehand. All necessary details can be discussed and we can then offer you a firm price for your Special Day!
Do I need to pay a deposit?
We ask that you make a 50% deposit at the time of confirming your booking. This deposit is returnable should you have the misfortune to have to cancel or alter the date of your event, however ...Any such cancellations must be made in writing and be at least 4 weeks before the planned date. The remaining balance of your fee is payable 4 weeks BEFORE the date of your event.
How do I pay?
We can accept Cash, Cheque, PayPal or a Direct Payment to our bank.
