Real Words from Real Brides – Our 5 Star Reviews in Words and Pictures

I’m proud to say that my business is in its 8th year now.  Word of mouth and a great presence on social media mean that I rarely go to wedding fairs or advertise these days.  However, if you would like to meet me and the car in person, I’d love to tell you more. Or you can read more about us both in our Expert Interview.  Don’t take my word for it, scroll down for some rave reviews from recent years and you’ll see some of the awesome feedback I get from couples. I pride myself on top-notch customer service, with the bride and groom as my number one priority, particularly the bride’s dress and hair! I promise that you and your guests will be completely blown away by my Ambassador’s quirky and fun vibe, giving your wedding a tongue-in-cheek nod to the past, whilst also being bang on trend for the vintage look.

Much Kushi Love

Having photos in the stunning meadows at sunset has to be one of our most memorable parts, along with taking a drive in the Indian Ambassador car right after the ceremony. Chloe & Jack, Cripps Barn©Geoff Kirby Photography

Thank you soooooo much for yesterday!!!!!! We loved the car, and you were soooooo helpful in calming my nerves!!!!!! We had a ball, and thank you, for helping make it such a special day!!!! I hope you got home safely? And that you weren’t too cold on the docks, think I was high on adrenaline, forgetting that you were outside in Baltic conditions hahahahaha. Thanks again for everything, Lots of love, Preetha & Andrew xxx

I needed something really different for my globe-wandering daughter. We found Kushi Cars purely by chance but what a stroke of luck. The car and service were perfect and fitted so well with the bohemian vibe of my daughter’s wedding. Thank you so much. Steve, Father of the Bride, Cripps Barn©Ed Godden Photography

This car is spectacular, inside and out! So unique and full of character. Suzie was an absolute pleasure to deal with and kindly drove my dad and I from our cottage in the Cotswolds to my wedding Ceremony at Stone Barn. It was an amazing experience, one that I will never forget. Thank you Suzie for being part of our day, wishing you lots of success for the future! Naoise and Cam, Stone Barn xxxP1120205

Wow!!!! What a day!!!! ​Thank you for being an amazing lady and making our day so spectacular! Think the car was a definite highlight of our celebrations- and we loved the parking right outside the record shop! Superb. It made a brilliant talking point with our guests who also enjoyed having their photo’s taken during the reception. ​You were so lovely Suzie, calm collected, on the ball, and completely cool! The car attracted so much good will, smiles and positive attention on the day, it was an absolute joy to travel in. We loved it so much I think we would have quite happily spent our first wedding night in the car! The beautiful décor and not forgetting the gold sequins brought old school glamour to our wedding by the bucket load! Can we do it again next weekend? Kate & Dan, The Queens Hotel, Cheltenhamkatesoo

We booked Suzie and her gorgeous car to take us from the church to our reception venue and it was one of the best decisions we made! The car is absolutely beautiful inside and out, and Suzie is so professional and helpful. We were so pleased that we got to travel back to the Barn from Sudeley in it, as it felt like such a special journey and the car was perfect for it! The communication from Suzie was great as well, from booking through to checking details a few days before and then on the day itself – thank you so so much! We just wish we had another special occasion soon so we could travel in the car again! Hannah & Ed, Upcote Barn 332Hannah and Edwards Wedding (1280x854) 330Hannah and Edwards Wedding (854x1280)

Hi Suzie, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for being at mine and Matt’s wedding. We both just had the best day, despite the drizzle! I’ve attached a few photos we took with the car, which looked absolutely stunning by the way! 🙂 Thanks again.” Kirsty and Matt, Wellington BarnIMG_4864

“Thank you Suzie! We had the most amazing time and you were absolutely incredible. Thank you for doing (literally) EVERYTHING to help ensure that our day ran smoothly, absolutely nothing was too much trouble, even lifting me leg down into the car as I was some ‘restricted’ in my dress! It was a real nerve calmer driving with you, my Dad and Stepdad to the church, sharing jokes, laughing and giggling all the way. The car was a massive hit and is beautiful inside and out, just like it’s proud owner! We were truly honoured to have you as part of our day and Isla will be utterly delighted to hear that she has won ‘Flower Girl of the Year 2016’ (to be fair she was a bit good wasn’t she?!). We honestly could not have asked for anymore! xxxxx” Kate & Will, Elmore CourtP1120036

“My wonderful husband Alex booked Suzie and her lovely car to take me to our wedding. I had said I wasn’t that fussed about a car but my word, this was one of the best parts of the day! The car looked incredible and all my guests LOVED it, I felt awesome arriving to Cripps Stone Barn in it. Suzie made it though, she was such a delight and made myself and my parents feel so at ease in a moment of nervous knots. The drive was just lovely! Thank you so much Suzie and thank you for taking some gorgeous photos of us with your gorgeous car too xxx.” Jess & Alex, Stone BarnP1110990

“What a great way to start a wedding by travelling in the Ambassador. My daughter Jess got married on Saturday to her soulmate Alex and my husband Bill and I travelled with Jess in the car. It is a very special vehicle with a magic interior and outside classic lines. Suzie made the journey a joy and took us on the scenic route in the Cotswolds past the beautiful beech tree woods. I cannot recommend Kushi Cars more highly. I’m trying to think how I can get another ride without remarrying – but Mr Hughes might have something to say about that!” Barbara, Mother of the Bride, Stone Barn P1110970

Thank you so much for your wonderful car Suzie! What a fab surprise from my dad; having lived in India it was just perfect! You were so relaxing and lovely, helping me with my dress and bouquet and even having a mirror to hand! Thank you for helping make our day perfect!! Hope to see you around Cheltenham, Clare xxx The Barn at BerkeleyP1110807

What an absolutely fantastic car! Suzie was a pleasure to deal with and went the extra mile to tow my dream car to the wedding venue. It was the perfect carriage to spend our first moments as newly weds and I cannot recommend highly enough. One of the highlights of our special day x Kitzy & Carl, The Ashes Wedding Barn, Staffordshire P1110753

Myself and my husband hired Suzie and her beautiful Indian ambassador car for our wedding day and I can honestly say we were not disappointed! The car wowed us and our guests with its true unique style and the service which Suzie provided was on point! From timings to the bottles of water and sweets for the journey. I would not hesitate to recommend Kushi Cars to anyone wanting to wow on their special occasion. Sheila & Dan, Bristol Marriott Royal HotelP1110694

Hi Suzie! I’ve been meaning to send you this since we got our wedding photos just before Christmas but it just kept slipping my mind! I just think it perfectly sums up just how lovely you were and the extra miles you seemed to go to get me to my wedding safely and with dry hair! Thank You again and I hope you’re well! Fiona & Ash, Cripps Barn.Fi & Ash (65) (1)

We had a great couple of (wedding) days last weekend, really happy with how it all went. Your car was an added surprise that everyone loved! We’ve had so many people asking where the Ambassador was from and will be pointing them all in your direction. Farhana really enjoyed her journey to Bittenham with you, she says you were a really soothing presence. Farhana and Amit, Bittenham SpringsFarhana-Amit-Ace-30

Hi Suzie, just wanted to say a huge thank you for driving us to my wedding on 9th October. The car was amazing and you were so lovely. Nobby’s family absolutely loved the car. Thanks again! Love Jo and Nobby xxx P1110443

Shane and I would like to thank you Suzie for everything! Was a pleasure to meet you and to have a relaxing journey to our venue in your beautiful, little car with my Mum. Suzie, you were so friendly and put me at ease from the moment you helped me into the car with my dress. After the ceremony, Shane and I very much enjoyed our ride in the car. It allowed us some time together and for Sheryl at Oobaloos Photography and yourself to capture some moments of us away from all the excitement. It was just enough time for us to collect our thoughts and enjoy the rush of having just said our vows to one another before returning us to the party. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! You were a significant part of making our wedding so fun, happy and memorable. Mr and Mrs Pargeter, Egypt Mill xPargeter Wedding (180 of 460) (2) (1280x852)

Hi Suzie we loved, loved, loved your photos!!! Thank you so much, your car was one of our favourite parts of the day. If you’d like us to write a little testimonial email me in a couple of weeks to remind me when we’re back. x  Sarah and Dips, Poundon House P1090159

Suzie thank you so much, the photos you took are lovely! You made it such a wonderful experience – it was a pleasure to drive to my wedding in your fantastic car!” Fiona & Ash – Cripps BarnP1110502

THANK YOU! It was wonderful to have you and the car as part of our wedding day. We LOVED IT (and you!) Love Jenny & Mark xxxjenny & mark-618

Hi Suzie, Thank you so much for everything on Saturday. You and your amazing car were just perfect! The photos you took look great, thanks so much for sharing with me. And so sorry again for having to take my chewing gum from me for the photos, you really will do anything for your clients! Thanks again, everyone absolutely loved the car and said how lovely you were too!” Laura & David, Stone BarnP1100698

Hey Suzie, Thanks so much for sending these through. It looks amazing, and we really, REALLY loved the experience. Thanks for driving round to us, we’re so glad we managed to get you and the car for our big day. I had loads of comments on the car and people were really impressed! Susi and AnandP1090388

We’re just back from honeymoon and to see all your fabulous photos from our wedding last month on Facebook. Thank you so much for sharing! We both wanted to send you a huge thank you for bringing your beautiful car to Wilton Castle and Broome Farm. Your calm and patient presence was so invaluable amongst all the chaos! And the photos from the car are absolutely incredible – I’m so glad we went with something a little different. We sent this email as a thank you to all our guests so we thought we’d send a special thanks to you as it wouldn’t have been the same without you! Big love” Ellie + Dan, Wilton Castle P1090467

Hi Suzie, Firstly, can I say thank you so much for the wonderful part you played in our special day. From helping me get into the car, to checking whether I’d removed my engagement ring and taking some of the best photos I’ve seen so far! The car is magical and went down a storm with all our guests. It really did add to the traveling theme of our wedding and I would highly recommend Kushi cars to everyone I know. Everybody warns you that you’ll feel a real low after it’s all over. To be honest, I had such a great time, I still feel elated. The one thing I do feel sad about is the relationships and friendships we formed with all the wonderful people that we met on the journey from he beginning to the actual wedding day, including you, are now at an end! Thank you once again! It would be great of you were able to find a minute to send me copies of those photos. Lots of love, xxx” Lindsay & Andy, Stone BarnIMG_4693

 

 

Hi Suzie! Thank you so much for helping make our day so special, all the guests were very impressed with your car and it was definitely a highlight of the day! The photos that you took are brilliant! I am so pleased that we found you as I didn’t want a ‘traditional’ wedding car and your car was absolutely perfect, it was such a joy to ride in it! We have been receiving photos from guests and your car features heavily in them! Everyone LOVED it! Vin especially loved driving it Thanks so much again for everything (and also for being so kind and bringing me a bottle of water! It was so thoughtful of you). Take care of yourself. Helen and Vin, Winkworth Farm P1090619

 

What’s so great about an Ambassdor wedding car?

To be perfectly honest, as cars go, they aren’t actually all that great.  Compared to a modern car that is.  Thirsty on the petrol, there’s no power steering, so biceps of steel are needed to maneuver.  Sometimes it feels like you have to stand on the brakes to stop, and don’t get me started on the handbrake.  Let’s just say, if hill starts were a sport, I could enter the Olympics! With no air con, on a hot summer’s day, shade from a tree is my only friend when parked.  That and a fan of course.  Yep, driving an old Ambassador is not for the faint hearted that’s for sure. But that’s also why I love it so. It’s quirky, whiny and cool.  It never fails to get a reaction and turn heads, I feel proud to own such a rare beast.  And rare it is, after 56 years of production in India ceased two years ago, the iconic Amby is no more. Well, apart from the 33,000 or so working as taxis in Kolkata! But what’s great about the Ambassador and why does it make a good wedding car? Well, to start with, there’s the ample legroom and roomy backseat that bounces along on the comfy suspension. Its impressive headroom and low front seats give passengers an uninterrupted view. Top it off with my Amby’s bejewelled interior and flowery bumpers, it’s a perfect, one-off, work of art that’s guaranteed to give your wedding the wow factor.

Lucy & Mike’s Champagne City Wedding in Bristol

Back in brilliant Bristol for our penultimate wedding of 2015…Booooo!!! Lucy & Mike married at The Square Club, with a champagne themed wedding, full to bursting with love, fun and funk. Lucy loved using the car as a prop at every opportunity, particularly on our little jaunt with their photographer Tasha Park to incorporate some classic Bristolian street art. As they say in Bristol, loves it!

Amanda & Ian’s Sunset Roman Wedding at Bath Pump Rooms

Love this time of year when our inbox starts filling with official photos from ace couples and their photographers. Big big thanks to Amanda & Ian for sharing these little gems by Anna Pumer Photography. These two married at sunset in a torch-lit ceremony, on the water’s edge of the 2000 year old Roman Baths. WOW! We felt truly privileged to park our little bit of India between Bath Abbey and the Pump Rooms for their dusk wedding photos. Stunning isn’t it? ♥

Much Kushi Love
