Easter has arrived and it marks the beginning of the 2012 wedding season at Heritage Classic Cars. One car was out on Sunday; a wedding at the Auberge du Lac. A Michelin starred restaurant nestling in the picturesque grounds of Brocket Hall near Wheathampstead. This is a gorgeous setting and perfect for photographs with the lake and the big house sitting in the middle of the rural Hertfordshire countryside. I offered to take the bride and groom for a spin around the estate's roads so they could stop for photographs. Sadly the photographer wasn't impressed and my suggestion was dismissed out of hand; she wanted to use golf buggies instead of a vintage car! Strange choice, but she was an American so perhaps I should forgive her lack of discernment and her flawed judgement.

Today, two cars were out in the rain for a wedding at Potters Bar and back to St Albans for the reception. They were a lovely couple and we enjoyed driving for them. It was such a shame that the weather was unkind. My son-in-law, Karl drove the second car. It was his first wedding job for Heritage Classic Cars and he was first class, a natural chauffeur if ever I saw one. He did really well and was even rewarded with a big hug from the bride's mother, much to the amusement of the bridesmaids.

It is great to be back driving at weddings again after a long winter break. The cars need to be used and I just love driving them. All we now need is a little more sunshine for our customers.
