Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choose Electric Jaguar as their wedding car

Unless you have been under a rock for the last 6 months, you will know that a rather lavish wedding took place on the weekend. Seeing Prince Harry tie the knot with American actress, Meghan Markle, the celebration did not disappoint when it came to extravagance. From guests such as Oprah Winfrey and the Beckhams to the £30m budget, the world stopped and stared as the young couple joined in matrimony.

While many were fixated on Meghan’s dress, shoes and tiara, we at Limo Broker waited patiently to see what the royals had in store for us when it came to transportation. Again, the couple did not fail us, exiting the star-studded event in an Jaguar E Type Concept Zero. Defying royal wedding car convention, many expected Harry to keep up with tradition and enjoy a ride in a petrol-guzzling Rolls Royce; but, did they make the right decision?

Well, many have commended the newlyweds for their car choice. With the car being electric, the couple communicate the message that they are environmentally—friendly, flying the flag for electric cars during one of the most-watched programmes of all time. However, unlike many eco-cars, this vehicle does not compromise when it comes to style.

A remake of ‘the most beautiful car in the world’

As a car that Enzo Ferrari describes as ‘the most beautiful car in the world’, this particular E-Type is a remake of the 1968 classic, staying true to its iconic look during the modernisation process.

Tim Hannig, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic, said the following at the launch of the eco version in 2017.

“E-type Zero combines the renowned E-type dynamic experience with enhanced performance through electrification. This unique combination creates a breathtaking driving sensation.

“Our aim with E-type Zero is to future-proof classic car ownership. We’re looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market.”

With the ability to get from 0-62 mph in and admirable 5.5 seconds, the car not only looks like the original but it performs like it also.

So, what do you think; does the royal wedding car deserve its price tag of £350,000? Leave your thoughts with us.

Wedding car convoy closes motorway to perform donuts!

While we at Limo Broker are all for a lavish presentation of wedding cars safety must always be considered. However, not everyone is like us, with one Turkish couple encouraging the closure of a motorway for their wedding car convoy to perform donuts.

The stunt was carried out on the Trans-European Motorway (TEM), blocking one of the busiest roads of the city. Encouraging people to stop, stare and lose focus on the road the police had no choice but to put an end to the impressive performance, displaying a duty of care to other road-users.

Professional sports car photographer and groom, Ozcan Ozer, was arguably behind this ordeal, with his groomsmen wanting to give the luxury car-lover a wedding car to remember.

One of the young men reportedly told police: ‘We admit we were wrong. Blame it on our youthfulness.’

Mr Asucuoglu reportedly admitted: ‘We blocked the TEM motorway for the wedding. We admit it was a very wrong thing to do.’

Bursting with bright colours the collection of cars were undeniably sublime, seeing other members of the wedding party get out of their cars to cheer the driver on, making for a whole set of amazing wedding photos.

Ten classic wedding cars worth around £500,000 have gone up in flames in Peterborough, a disaster that now sees the family-run business with a huge dent in their fleet. The accident saw 50 fire fighters make their way to the depot, trying to control the voracious flames that engulfed the vehicles

What cars were destroyed?

Renowned for offering a stellar transport service to the area the family are understandably upset by the loss of their cars, something that will directly affect the running of their operations.

Cars destroyed included:

  • 1934 Rolls Royce 20/25 – white bodywork and black trim

A statement from Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: ‘The fire had started in the garage and rapidly spread throughout the large garage and to the house owing to the strong winds and a fuel tank becoming involved in the fire.

The garage contained a number of cars which were all burnt out.’

Group commander Sean Brown, said: ‘This was a particularly difficult fire to tackle which was exacerbated by strong winds, cylinders in the garage and the need for a large water supply.

‘We used a relay of fire engines to bring water to the scene from a nearby hydrant and the fire was under control by 10pm.

‘Sadly the fire has completely destroyed the garage, its contents and the adjoining house.’

Bride-to-be Uncovered for Wedding Competition Scam

For many the dream wedding can seem financially impossible, with things like wedding competitions being a godsend. Giving happy couples on a budget the chance to exit single life with a bang some get very much involved, going to great lengths to try and bag the prize at hand.

For one bride this need for the ultimate wedding went too far, creating fake email addresses to secure the highest votes for a 25,000 wedding competition. Doing her best to fix the competition her efforts did not go uncovered for long, with the industry having put pillars in place to unveil such ill practice.

This was uncovered by UK advertising watchdog, launching an investigation into the suspicious number of votes this one bride-to-be was receiving.

Hubert Burda Media used an email marketing specialist, Pure360, to monitor the incoming votes, noticing a huge increase in the votes one couple were getting.

The ASA agreed that the publisher took the right action and were right to immediately ban the couple from the competition.

It said: “We understood the complainants’ concerns but we were satisfied that Hubert Burda Media had accounted for the circumstances for the increase in voting pattern for couple B and that couple C’s votes had maintained a steady flow of votes over the voting period. [Hubert Burda Media] had taken reasonable steps to verify the apparently large increase in votes for couple A before taking the decision to disqualify them from the competition. Therefore, we concluded Hubert Burda Media had administered the promotion fairly.”
