I have been so lucky in the last 5 years to meet so many lovely people through the wedding business. Recently I met the lovely Emma who runs her own wedding car hire business. She features on my blog today. We got chatting and this is what she told me.
Tell us about Rennicks Wedding Cars and how/when you got started? We started Rennicks Wedding car hire 13 months ago. It has been an amazing first year; I have loved every minute of it. Stephen my husband has a passion for cars he has been in the motor industry for 34 years. One day an old wedding car came into the garage and he said “Emma that is what you should do, start up a wedding car business.” Before I knew it he was building me our Stunning 1930’s Regent Landaulet car then we added another 4 cars to the fleet. I am very passionate about my cars and take pride in every job that we do. I have amazing people and employees around me which makes it such a wonderful job.
What service do you offer? We offer a friendly service which can be tailored to each couples’ special day and their individual needs. I Keep in touch with the couples before the big day to make sure they know exactly what will happen on the day. The Chauffeur arrives nice and early to collect the wedding party and is around until the couple have their photographs taken after the ceremony our prices are based on a 4 hour wedding.
What area do you cover? We cover central Scotland and our show room is based in Thornliebank.
How early do clients need to book with you? We have bookings for 2017 or sometimes we get last minute bookings too.
What makes you different from your competitors? We are a family run business with our own showroom which keeps the cars in immaculate condition. I like to think the selection of elegant white cars can be part of each couples’ wedding day and be memorable and look amazing in their photographs.
What do you enjoy most about your job? I love meeting the couples and seeing them enjoy our cars. I love it when they share a beautiful photograph or lovely words. That is what makes it all worthwhile. It is really nice to hear how happy our customers have been with our drivers and service.
What have been your main achievements so far? Mmm let me think….. I feel becoming a business woman and having my own successful business has been amazing for my husband and children to see. They have watched me grow personally and it’s lovely when they tell me how proud they are of what I have achieved. I was in a fortunate position to have been able to enjoy my children for 14 years but it is nice to show them the other side of Mummy.
What/who inspires you? My Husband Stephen inspires me and motivates me. People who I work with in the wedding industry inspire and educate me. The couples I meet on a weekly basis inspire me. I am very lucky to have made some amazing friends along the way.
If you were getting married next year, what trends would you adopt? I would have the day with a little bit of a vintage theme or a 1950’s feel as that is what I like at this moment in time. I would keep things really simple.
What are your plans for the future? To add another car, this year, to my fleet. One that is a little different to the others we have now. It offers a little bit of choice to couples. Watch this space!
