Classic Wedding Cars at Newburgh Priory
Yesterday I posted a set of images of the Kata teepees from Papakata, who showed at The Wedding Affair wedding fair at Newburgh Priory over the weekend.
Today we have Superior Motor Cars, Yorkshire’s finest collection of classic wedding cars. Based in Bolton village, just west of Pocklington in East Yorkshire, Chris and his team lovingly strip, rebuild and restore old classic Bentleys and Rolls Royces to their original condition. Also at the fair was Chris’ wife Niki, owner of Classic Car Hire Yorkshire, with a small collection of the many vehicles available for hire through her own business.
Superior Motor Cars
Chris from Superior Motor cars was showing the following cars
1948 Bentley Freestone and Webb
1952 Bentley Freestone and Webb
1939 Rolls Royce Wraith (actually an original and un-restored car – she has all her original tools and a full 73 year service history!)
Also available through Chris at Superior Motor Cars is a new addition to the collection of available wedding cars, a beautiful white 1947 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith.
1947 Rolls Royce Classic Wedding Car
Here’s what Chris has to say about this beauty – see below for some of the photographs we took at the show.
It’s a beautiful Rolls Royce bodied by Mulliner with classic Sedanca de Ville styling. The roof over the chauffeur’s section can be opened. The five-seat passenger compartment remains protected from draughts behind the internal division.
The car has been in the same family for over 60 years – originally a wedding present to the late Lady Barwick from her husband in 1948. The elegant Silver Wraith Sedanca de Ville was driven through France to Italy each year for family holidays, as well as visiting children at school in Switzerland during term time. It also has TV pedigree, having been in a number of episodes of All Creatures Great and Small as Mrs Pumphrey’s chauffeur driven car.
Classic Car Hire York
On show from Niki at Classic Car Hire York were
1978 Volkswagen Camper Van in purple
1968 Morris Minor
The above three vehicles are all available through Niki for self drive hire.
