Audrey & Karlsen’s 1950’s Barn Wedding – July 2014

Congratulations to Audrey and Karlsen who married at the beautiful Kingscote Barn near Tetbury. There was a definite nod to the 1950’s with THE BEST SHOES EVER – Melissa Shoes by Vivienne Westwood!!!  You could say that Her Outdoors fitted the brief perfectly!  This couple were so lucky to grab their photos in the sunshine because the weather turned into ‘cats and dogs’ rain later, as you’ll see. After the ceremony we drove them for some quiet time and photos in the beautiful Cotswold countryside near Tetbury.  Some of the official images by the ledge that is Clint from Pixel Photography. Awesome aren’t they?  (Always choose a professional photographer, always). Bon voyage you two, have yourselves a magnificent mini-moon! Much Kushi Love xx Suzie xx

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. To be honest, I had such a great time, I still feel

Vicky & Gavin – Painswick Rococo Gardens – April 2014

It took about 1300 hours to sew the thousands of swarovski crystals and beads onto Vicky’s dress, which was designed by her fashion designer friend and bridesmaid Hannah. I’ve never seen a dress so beautiful and my camera doesn’t do it justice. To say she glittered and shined is an understatement! A perfect, woodland ceremony in the Painswick Rococo Gardens followed by a drive to the Old Lodge on Minchinhampton Common for their reception. Congratulations Vicky and Gavin, hope you enjoyed the spin?! 😉 Kushi Love, Suzie xx

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.

Ding Ding! All Change…Introducing Our New Name KUSHI CARS…

My shiny new blog and how fitting that my first post should be about my new name!  From September 2013, we will be known as KUSHI CARS.  Kushi means ‘happiness’ in Hindi and I know that my Ambassador always makes people feel happy. In fact, she positively revels in giving weddings a special and quirky twist, as well as a show-stopping arrival for you as the bride. If you’ve just found us and want to know more about our ‘back story’ (X Factor stylee!) then I shall begin… As well as a couple of babies along the way, I gave birth to Kushi Cars in 2010 when a random Google search found that the car from my own wedding was for sale! Three years and
