We caught up with Chris White from Yorkshire's Superior Motor Cars

We caught up with Chris White from Yorkshire's Superior Motor Cars: Image 2 - Give us an overview of your business and what you offer
We offer classic cars, including rare Bentleys and Rolls Royces, for weddings. We invest considerable time training our well-dressed chauffeurs to enhance the couple's special day. We offer a very personal service – the drivers will help the bride in and out of the car with her dress, and from the house to the car if required. They will explain to the gents how to keep their coat tails un-crumpled when sat in the car. They'll make sure the bride has remembered her bouquet – you will be surprised how many brides come out of the house without it!

- How long have you been trading and what is your background?
We are in our 19th successful year running our wedding car business. Starting at the beginning of 2001 with 2 Rolls Royce Silver Clouds, we have expanded our fleet over the years to provide a broad selection of classic cars to suit most tastes and wedding themes.
We have restored most of the cars in our workshops where we also maintain all our vehicles. Over the years we have moved the Rolls Royce and Bentley aspect of our business towards the rare coach-built cars in addition to the conventional factory-built cars. Our fleet includes cars such as MKII Jaguar, V8 Daimler, Morris Minor, VW Campervan, classic Mustangs and many others.

- Do you offer any special services?
We offer a very personal service from your first enquiry. You have plenty of time to look around the cars with us available to answer your questions. Many couples also enjoy looking around our workshops to see the projects we have underway, and also around our accommodation. We have two beautiful properties that couples often book for a few days before they set off on their main honeymoon.
We provide the traditional ivory ribbon for our cars and also silk flowers, if the couple wishes. We have complimentary chilled champagne in the car ready for the newlyweds to enjoy on the way to their reception. If the ceremony and reception are at the same venue, we usually take the couple for a spin in the car to give them a little time alone together and of course, enjoy the champagne.

- Tell us about your vehicles - what type of wedding are they best suited to?
We have vehicles to suit all wedding themes. Our Rolls Royce and Bentleys tend to be used for traditional weddings, the Campervan and Morris Minor are perfect of the quirky and cute weddings. The Jaguar and Daimler are again for the traditional, but the cars are understated in their elegance and more comfortable for the bride and groom. The Mustangs and the Rat Rod are definitely used as a statement and do lots of trendy and fashionable weddings!

Tell us about your favourite vehicle...
One of my favourite cars is our 1939 Rolls Royce Wraith, and it's her 80th Birthday this year! Only 497 Wraiths were built by Rolls Royce before the second World War intervened, of these six were bodied as aerobacks by Park Ward. To our knowledge, she is the only one left! She is a beautiful and original car, never having been restored, and has a full service history from new in 1939. We even have the original build cards and delivery notes from Rolls Royce and Park Ward! As a birthday treat we are giving her engine a thorough overhaul with new liners and pistons and a general cleaning out of her water ways as well as a repainting the engine. This will be the first serious overhaul of the engine in eighty years – clearly cars CAN be built to last!
