Testimonials - Embarrassing but Heart Warming

Over the years I have amassed thousands of wedding photographs, hundreds of 'thanks you' emails and a large cherished folder of hand written thank you cards. But have always avoided writing a 'Testimonials' web page as it always seemed somewhat self indulgent.

That said I am told that potential clients love to read such things and to be fair I to get a great deal of job satisfaction receiving and reading them.

 

Two phrases that we hear frequently at weddings:

“What a great idea. Who thought about using a London white taxi?”

“I’ve never seen a pure white London taxi before”


Now many years on I also have, Bridesmaids, Family and Guests coming up to me and saying

Doug you took me to my wedding back in xyz year

It will not be to many years before it is a Mother of the Bride

Hi Doug,

Just a quick note from Will and I to say thank you for the amazing job you did on our Big Day.

You made the journey for my Dad and I relaxed and then again for Will and I on the way to Loseley House.

The taxi was spotless and added a great quirky touch to our wedding.

Many thanks,

Fiona and Will

Many thanks for your wedding taxi last Saturday. It all went very smoothly. A

thoroughly professional service and I’m especially grateful for your words of

wisdom to my daughter in the drive to the church from our house. I’m sure it

helped settle her nerves. Thanks also for the detour via Balcombe viaduct. Anna has seen some of Danni Beach’s photos taken there, and it appears to have been well worth the time there.

Happy to recommend you to any of my friends whose daughters get married in the area. 

Kind regards

Jim

Thanks for your exemplary service and very kind support on Saturday.

Things like this make all the difference to the smooth running and enjoyment of the wedding day.

Can't thank you enough and what a good choice a white cab is

so much room and so easy to get in and out of.

Why choose anything else!

The added sound of Rolls Royce Merlin engines as they get treated to a Fly Past by a Spitfire and a Hurricane, not just once but they flew over five times.

Rachel and Jack are a fantastic couple but I am sure they and many older guests fully appreciated the added emotions generated by the sight and sound of the Spitfire

Hi Doug,

We just wanted to say the hugest thank you for making us feel so comfortable on our wedding day and ensuring that we got from place to place without any stress at all. You were such a calming influence and so helpful and we really appreciated all the little touches you added for us ......from making sure the champers was there for a photo opportunity to driving us to the golf club and allowing us to have many pics in the car! When we get our photos through we will send some if you would like?

Many thanks again for being such a great part of our special day

We had an absolutely super day made even more special by your professional approach to your service and your complete dedication to us on our day. The White Taxi was certainly a fabulous idea and caused a great deal of talk amongst our guests. I will be recommending your service to all the brides that I see. We can’t thank you enough.

We had a great day. Thanks for the service you provided it was just perfect. Many of our guests commented what a good idea it was to have taxis. We thought the magnets were a fantastic idea, and the letter and small magnets raised a real laugh at the party
