Bride arrives in Porsche wedding car she hand-built herself
26-year-old Megan Ashton has always had a passion for cars, so when it came to choosing the right wedding car to transport her on her big day, she needed something extra special. So when her partner popped the question two years ago, Megan rolled up her sleeves and got stuck into building her own dream wedding car.
Having grown up around motors at her dad’s garage in Devon, tinkering with cars is second nature to the bride-to-be. The Royal Navy engineer had bought a clapped out Volkswagen Beetle 6 years ago with the plan of creating a Porsche replica, however it wasn’t until the wedding started to loom that the brunette began work in earnest on her restoration project.
Fitting her time around wedding planning, dress shopping, and work on her would-be wedding car proved challenging for Megan, not to mention costly. The 26-year-old even asked for her parents to buy her parts for her car in place of gifts every Christmas and birthday to help with her project.
However all of the hard work more than paid off as the blushing bride succeeded in transforming the wreck of a car into a gleaming Porsche replica estimated to be worth a massive £25,000. The silver sports car was decked out with ribbons especially for the big day in Wiltshire and proved to be one of the main focal points of the wedding day.
