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

Established in 2010, I’m proud to say that my business is in its 9th year now. Word of mouth and a great presence on social media mean that I rarely go to wedding fairs or advertise these days.

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.

Here’s Hannah and Ed’s castle wedding service at Sudeley Castle, followed by photos in the castle grounds.

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

Lindsay & Andy’s Wedding at Stone Barn – May 2014

Has to be THE best start to my week. Magical words from Friday’s bride that made me well up… “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.

The Magic Within…Take A Look Inside

Everyone notices my Ambassador because seeing an Indian car pootling around the Cotswolds is unheard of. ¬†There’s nothing like it around these parts. ¬†Most people clock the flowery bumpers and realise it’s a wedding car but it’s not until you look inside that the magic hits you. ¬†Gasps of delight, astonishment and “Wow, look at the chandelier!” are often heard. ¬† It took 7 days to create her bejewelled interior of rich fabrics, not to mention A LOT of glue! Pretty much every surface that could be adhered to, was covered in fabrics sourced from the markets of India. ¬†The inspiration was to recreate a Goan Sunset, hence the use of reds and golds throughout. There’s two things I love about my car’s interior decor.
