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.

5 Tips For Choosing a Wedding Car

When planning a wedding things can get stressful, with so much to think about and do before the big day. This is why we at Limo Broker do our best to make wedding car hire shopping a hassle-free process, helping brides and grooms-to-be find the best cars to make that all-important entrance in.

If you are at that stage where you are looking to book your wedding cars the we hope our top 5 tips will help you along the way.

Theme

The theme of your wedding must be portrayed through your choice of transport, clearly showing guests that you have put a lot of thought and effort into planning a wedding that is uniformed.

Our fleet encompassing a range of cars from different eras, ensuring we can accommodate all types of weddings whether they be modern, traditional, vintage or even novelty celebrations.

Colour

Colour in general plays an important role in any wedding, with most weddings working to a strict colour scheme that is non-negotiable. This is why selecting a car that fits it with the overall look of your big day is essential, making for perfect photographs. At Limo Broker we can provide wedding cars of all shapes, sizes and colours stocking all sorts of vehicles from white Rolls Royce Phantoms to blue Porsches and black limousines.

Size 

If you have opted for a traditionally oversized meringue–style wedding dress then a self-drive Ferrari wedding car is probably not the greatest of ideas. When shopping for a car you will need to think about it’s size, not wanting to crease your clothes or feel uncomfortable during what is supposed to be the most memorable car ride of your lifetime.

Passengers

The people that you will be sharing your wedding car with will also have a bearing on what vehicle you select. Many brides like to share this emotional journey with their mother, father or even their bridesmaids. Whoever you want to share you wedding car with we can make sure the journey is one of comfort, with our drivers taking the best routes possible.

My Big Fat Asian Wedding

At Limo Broker we are have been catering to Asian wedding transport for many years, with Hindu, Muslim and Sikh celebrations renowned for going that extra mile to impress. Although strongly focused on Asian couple’s adherence to great cars we have noticed that indulgence has a huge focus across the whole Asian wedding scene, with the figure of the party planner never being so in-demand.

With the Asian wedding market becoming such a flourishing industry C4 has decided to hone in on the subject, airing a programme entitled ‘My Big Fat Asian Wedding’ tonight at 10pm.

The first episode will monitor RAJ Somaiya, an Asian wedding business planner best-known for arranging decadent, lavish celebrations in the UK. Being named ‘one of Britain’s busiest and most exuberant Asian wedding planners’ we can only imagine the outlandish requests he is set to address on air, clearly representing how important the wedding ceremony is to all Asian traditions.

Focusing on the UK’s Asian diaspora the show is expected to illustrate how wedding planners fuse Asian culture with the British style, bringing the colours and smells of Asia to the wedding venues of London and Leeds.

What is so different about an Asian wedding?

In our experience Asian weddings are typically larger affairs than your average British celebration, with longer guest lists, dresses and cars required.

Where a UK wedding costs around twenty thousand pounds Asian couples tend to work with a six-figure budget, going above and beyond to blow their guests away. Inviting people that they may never have even met before the Asian wedding is for extended family as much as it is for the happy couple, being a cultural celebration that unites families and friends from various locations. For this reason attention to detail is a must.

At Limo Broker we have found that the following cars are the most popular choices for Asian weddings:

  • Rolls Royce Phantom
  • Rolls Royce Ghost
  • Rolls Royce Silver Cloud
  • Beauford
  • Bramwith
  • Lamborghini Aventador
