Daimler Wedding Car Plane Crash

Shoreham Air Show: Plane crashes into Wedding Car

Usually wedding days act as incredible times capsules, being an event that people can reflect on with fond memories. However, for bride and groom Rebecca and Rajendran Asekaran this was not the case, with their wedding car being involved in a tragic accident on the A27 that took seven lives yesterday afternoon.

Where the driver of Luxury Daimler is yet to be confirmed what we do know is that a Hawker Hunter fighter jet smashed into the car, ripping off its roof and causing an almighty explosion.

The plane, which was meant to be part of an air show, plummeted onto the dual carriageway and burst into a huge ball of fire, causing the motorway to come to a standstill of horror. First hitting a Vauxhall vehicle the plane then continued into the wedding car which was travelling on the other side of the road heading towards Worthing.

A wedding day to remember

imageUnderstandably putting a dampener on the day the couple did their best to not let this tragic ordeal ruin their celebrations.

Rajendran said: ‘I looked on my iPhone and saw a picture of the carnage and could pick out the car that was meant to be here.’

‘We’re fine. The wedding wasn’t ruined, it was beautiful, it was lovely.’ Continued the bride.

The mother-of-the-bride said: ‘We knew there had been a crash. The wedding went ahead. The photographer took myself and the bridesmaids and my husband went with some of others.’

The Daimler

The Daimler is said to be fully insured, however, the firm are extremely saddened by the events that unfolded.

Jay Sherwin, who works at the firm, told the Sun: ‘I can confirm that it is one of our cars but at this stage I do not know what happened to the driver.

‘I am waiting to hear from his wife and the police. All I will tell you is that he is a lovely guy and has worked for the company for 20 years. He was on his way to pick up a bride just along the road from Shoreham.’

A hero at the scene

Terry Smith, who bravely risked his life to pull people from the vehicles stranded as flames has been referred to as both a ‘hero’ and ‘godsend’, facing danger head on in a strive to save lives.

He revealed just how close he was to this terrible incident saying: ‘I can’t believe I escaped with my life.

‘It seemed to come in at a really strange angle. He just didn’t have enough height. I was just thinking, this is coming too close, it’s not going to make it, it’s not going to make it.

At Limo Broker we are all extremely saddened by this news and would like to extend our condolences to everyone involved.

Beautiful cars can have a certain way of translating messages to consumers in a manner that captures interest and intrigue simultaneously.

Possessing that definite mystery passers by are always hungry to know who or what is inside a limousine, trying their hardest to see through those blacked out windows.

Luckily for the pedestrians of Cardiff they have today seen this beautiful stretched limousine sporting the promotional art of Spice 2 Go, the Indian food chain who have made the most of Limo Broker’s marketing opportunities. The stretched Audi Q7 roamed the streets of Cardiff encouraging everyone to download their app to receive free food!

With Audi R8’s being synonymous with astonish such vehicles serve as fantastic Public Relations tools, enthusing with that sense of originality that all marketing campaigns require.

Spice 2 Go are regular clients of ours who are infamous for creating relationships with consumers through innovative and ‘out of the box’ marketing. From belly dances to PR stunts their prominence within the market is greatly admirable.

Encouraging brand recognition the branded R8 limousine travelled throughout Cardiff and Swansea, ensuring no passer by looked past their promotional endeavour.

We spoke to the Head of Marketing at Spice 2 Go who put the already displayed success of the app down to Limo Broker’s vehicles.

‘We decided to go with an Audi Q7 as it is a car that attracts the youth demographic, as does the food of Spice 2 Go. By stamping the white Audi with the colours and logos of the Spice 2 Go chain we ensured the iconography of Spice 2 Go would be embedded in the minds of onlookers, seeing an influx of customers ordering our curries.’

As well as serving as a great advantage to the marketing of the brand todays efforts have seen the Spice 2 Go stores inundated with orders. Customers have been wanting to try out the app and leave reviews, revelling in the first curry house to boast an online app.

Cars For Stars sees record profits compared to last year’s prom season

The UK’s leading and most-trusted luxury car hire company Cars For Stars has seen its sales figures go up by 38% on last year’s prom season. It proves just how the UK’s prom industry is growing at epic speeds and it’s showing no signs of slowing down.

It isn’t just prom time that has proved a great success for Cars For Stars this last year, they’ve also seen a profit increase for general limo hirings, which are up by 24% on last year, with more and more people hiring out top-of-the-range limos, luxury motors and sports cars for events ranging from weddings to sports events and more. It is thought that if the industry continues to thrive in the way it’s been doing of late, profits for next year could hit record highs, possibly doubling revenue compared with 2011-2012.

One reason for this might be the UK’s obsession with the American style prom – all schools have them these days and limos get booked up well in advance of the big day just so all the school leavers can get the perfect car for the evening in order to turn heads and travel to the venue in style. The prom industry actually has the potential to make even more money if only prom dates were staggered more over a days or weeks. This would mean prom cars did not all get booked up early on, and teenagers, parents and teachers could rest assured they would get the car they wanted for the social event of the year.

The internet designs President Putin a new limo

Russia’s president, Vladamir Putin, has had enough of being driven about in a Mercedes S-Class and has decided he wants something a little more majestic-looking.

Russian truck, heavy equipment and armoured vehicle manufactures Zavod imeni Likhachova or ‘ZiL’ for short, have been tasked with designing the new presidential ride. But because ZiL haven’t made a limousine for a while, internet users have been asked to submit designs and ideas and try to help out.

The chosen entry out of 100 others was by two talented designers, Yaroslav Yakovlev and Bernd Weel. They came up with a concept car creation that looks a bit like a cross between a Rolls Royce Phantom and a Chrysler, with its long hood, upright windscreen, and swept-appearance. They based the design on Russian architecture, and describe it as holding “a majestic style that is full of classicism that mostly resembles power and authority.”

There’s no clue as to what the interior or inside of the car is like, but we’re guessing there will definitely be a bar stacked with the finest vodka.

Whether President Putin likes the design is yet to be seen…
