Getting to know the people behind Spirit Wedding Cars…… MATTHEW

Matthew has a passion for all things car related and is a subscriber to the Top Gear magazine with the latest addition of the magazine accompanying him in the wedding cars to read during the ceremony – (of course this is after cleaning the wedding car if it rains so once again spotless for the newlyweds).

Matthew is a family man with two little girls and therefore appreciates the importance of such a special occasion as a wedding and that is why his attention to detail is second to none.

Matthew is married to Wendy, who you will get the opportunity to get to know later in this series of blogs about getting to know the people behind Spirit Wedding Cars.

In the recent Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards a customer gave the following feedback....

“As soon as we met Matthew we knew we wanted him to be a part of our wedding day. His friendly manner & passion for his cars was clear and he was just what we were looking for. On the day itself, Matthew went out of his way to meet all of our needs; above & beyond all of our expectations.
We felt so privileged to be driven through the streets of Bristol in such a gorgeous (and beautifully presented) car. In the week before the wedding, Matthew drove the route, making sure he knew the best roads to take & timings.
We were totally reassured that I would be where I needed to be and on time! Any queries or emails were answered promptly. Matthew was a valued member of our wedding party.
On initial investigation, Spirit Wedding Cars seemed comparable in terms of price for companies in the area. However once we had contacted Matthew & Wendy, their friendly nature & passion for their cars shone through (prompt & friendly website response; willingness to showcase their cars; talking us through what they offer; family business). There was no question in our minds after that about which company we should go with.”

Matthew is pictured here with the 4 Door Beauford Wedding Car.

Spirit Wedding Cars and The Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Friday 26th February 2016 saw the Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards take place. The Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards were launched in 2013 to recognise the high level of talent within the wedding industry throughout the South West region. The awards showcase all the great work these suppliers do for so many Bride & Grooms. The Awards also support The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation who organise & fund weddings for people with a life limiting or terminal illness. The awards work by the supplier asking their previous years clients to vote for them. The clients then have 4 questions:
1. The overall standard of service
2. The quality of actual product
3. Value for money
4. The supplier’s commitment to the wedding

The client then has the option to leave a comment. These comments are passed onto the supplier anonymously. (After the Awards presentation). Some of the comments left by our customers were so lovely and a pleasure to read here are a few:

Voter Comment 1: “Were very polite done everything I asked and more, made me relaxed on my big day couldn’t of done any more for us. Price was great, great feedback from other customers and had everything we wanted.”

Voter Comment 2: “Most helpful, fantastic cars, drivers most accommodating, really put the icing on the day. Thanks Spirit Wedding Cars. Previous experience, which was also equally exceptional.”

Voter Comment 3: “They went out of their way to ensure that our wedding day was perfect, they turned up in plenty of time, were more than helpful & the most friendliest people – this all helped keep me calm on route to our wedding venue. I couldn’t thank them enough! I booked this supplier because they could provide the sort of transport that I wanted and they gave a very competitive quote. After email quotes I was invited to attend a wedding fair that they were at so I could take a look at the car prior to booking. The owners Matthew and Wendy were easy to talk to and were so friendly which helped in my decision to book this service.”

Both drivers were in good spirits and, therefore, put us all at ease; making conversation throughout the various journeys and meeting our needs without being prompted. Refreshments were readily available and their generosity was excellent. We first met Spirit Wedding Cars at a wedding fayre at The Bristol Hotel and were very impressed with their fleet of vehicles. They appealed to us as they are a family run appealed and are willing to travel to accommodate their clients’ wishes. They had the type of cars we were hoping could feature on our special day.

The service was professional from the start, which included a trip to my parents’ house the weekend before the wedding - mum and dad were delighted to see the driver! On the day everyone was very well looked after and they were happy to make three trips to the church, they arrived in plenty of time also. Following the service, our little boy (pageboy) was looked after very well in the front of the car and was even allowed to beep the horn, whilst we drove to the venue.”

Voter Comment 29: “So friendly and professional. Calling before the wedding to check details and using samples from our wedding to match the ribbon colour perfectly were lovely touches.”
