The Wedding of Steven and Georgina took place on Saturday 3rd June 2017 at Penzance Registry office and afterwards at The Godolphin Arms, Marazion.
It was a special day today for Steven and Georgina but it was also a rather special day for Strawberry Leisure! Today was the day our lovely 1954 Oval Beetle made its debut onto the Cornwall Wedding Scene!
There was much excitement in the Strawberry Leisure team as she emerged looking splendid in white ribbons, her brand new paintwork glistening and the rather deep roar of her engine sending tingles down spines!
She was being escorted today and shown the ropes by our fabulous Lily also dressed in white. Jason and Simon were the Chauffeurs and as they drove off gave a good old toot on the Claxon’s! They were headed for The Godolphin Arms, where Jason (in Lily) was to pick up the Bride and her Father, Jeremy and Simon (in the beetle) was collecting the Mother of the Bride, Eileen, pageboy Oliver and bridesmaid Emily.
They made the relatively short trip over to Penzance registry office where they dropped everyone off for the ceremony and then parked round the corner to wait for them. Simon actually popped off very quickly in the beetle to pop some fuel in (just to make sure they didn’t run out on the way back!)
Afterwards there were photos outside and some Champagne popping before they drove in convoy back to the Godolphin. This time of course it was Steven and Georgina in the back of Lily, sipping their Champagne en-route!
They stopped off in the car park by the slipway opposite St Michaels Mount where their photographer, Paul Keppel was waiting for them.
Eileen and the two children who had been travelling in the beetle said it certainly had been an experience, even though the beetle had apparently made some rather rude noises throughout the day!
After some fabulous photos with the Camper and the Beetle it was time to say goodbye and leave them to enjoy their reception.
Congratulations Steven & Georgina!
