Ellen is EXC-ELLEN-T

Here at Wedding-Car we like to restore rare Vintage and Classic cars to a very high standard, then offer them to Brides and Grooms for their big day ….. Our latest acquisition ‘Ellen’ is no exception.

‘Ellen’ is our new (well new to us) Vintage Car….. She is a 1932 Citroen C4G ‘Big Twelve’ and like our other vintage cars (her elder sisters) she was built at the Citroen works  in Slough, she is just 4 years younger than our others but still an impressive 81 years old.

We have owned ‘Ellen’ since November 2012 and from then until now we have carried out some light restoration work to include her beautiful new paintwork, beautiful new leather re-trim and some mechanical work to bring her up to our consistent high standard.

Whenever we complete a restoration we road-test the vehicle to excess, so that we get to know the handling characteristics of the car and to highlight any areas that need further attention, to make sure the car is perfect for a wedding day – So like the other cars it was Ellen’s chance to impress us today.  

Our new restoration road test is over 100 miles in a day, so today we took Ellen to Windsor in Berkshire to visit relatives – we took the long route from Newton Longville through Stewkley, Aston Abbotts, Wingrave, Aston Clinton and Wendover, then a brief stop off in Beaconsfield  for a cup of coffee, then on to Windsor (through the floods) via Cookham and Maidenhead.

We decided to visit Windsor Castle before heading home and the tourists loved the car too

We enjoyed our family day out with Ellen and have established that she is ready for her first wedding with Wedding-Car and will be added to our website in the next few days.

Unfortunately we are unable to attend the upcoming Milton Keynes Wedding Show but we will be supporting the Heart FM Wedding Fair at Horwood House on the 17th February 2013 and the weekend after on the 24th February 2013 we are at the Holiday Inn & Debenhams Wedding fair in central Milton Keynes.

Ellen is a beautiful wedding car ..... 

The interior is spacious and nice too .....

As Ellen is ‘new’ to us there is plenty of availability for this year, so if you have perhaps left it a bit late to book up, give us a call or email to check regarding her availability.
