Rochford Hotel
Chauffeuring to The Rochford Hotel.

It’s been a while since we last blogged, and we would like to personally welcome you back to Dream American Cars blog page!
2017 has been a marvellous year for us, as we have been privileged to chauffeur many Brides and their party to the biggest day of their lives, and I must add, we always have the loveliest of Brides. This year we have ventured across Essex, Suffolk and London, even down to the far depths of Kent and across to Berkshire, distance has been pretty much a doddle for our American wedding cars with their huge engines, which were designed to travel across the States of America.
One of our most recent weddings took place at The Rochford Hotel, a local wedding venue that is well known for having it all! As well as the stunning, secluded grounds which surround the hotel’s lavish wedding pavilion, they are also well known for having very friendly and attentive wedding coordinators, and wait for it……. the Wedding Pavilion has original pews!
Our pick-up was in the tranquil area of Burnham-on Crouch, and what a perfect day it was, as it was the 27th October and it was a scorcher of a day.
Both our 1951 Buick Super ‘Daisy’ and 1947 Cadillac ‘Bettie-Mae’ were booked to pick up our Bride and Bridal party. When we arrived, it was not decided on who was having which car, but as soon as our Bride ‘Carrie’ set eyes on Daisy, her eyes lit up and we knew this was going to be her car, along with her Mother and Father to escort her. Bettie-Mae was not left out at all, oh no… she had five Bridesmaids gushing over her, and they couldn’t wait to set-off on their 50-minute journey, all the way to The Rochford Hotel, where the ceremony and reception was to be held.  
As soon as we arrived at The Rochford Hotel, the Bridal Party calmly made their way into the Hotel to meet the Registrar, they were very relaxed and just enjoying the beautiful day, it was a pleasure to witness. After their ceremony, the Bridal Party, family and guests made their way back round to the front of the hotel where the wedding cars were parked up and waiting, to then proceed with some photographs. Whilst the photographs were taking place, we managed to capture a few ourselves.
We would like to congratulate Carrie & Kris on your marriage, and it was a delight to chauffeur for you and your family.

Dream American Cars are pleased to announce that we have received another outstanding Google wedding car testimonial.

​"I simply LOVED my car - I think it was one of the things I was most looking forward to on our wedding day and I couldn't believe my eyes when it pulled up outside on the very windy Easter weekend morning of our wedding!! 
Nick was the perfect chauffeur; dapper, lovely and very understanding when we realised I had left my bouquet at home!! :-0 People looked so impressed as we drove past them on the way to our venue, lots of pointing and waving! I felt like a movie star from the fifties and loved every second. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed! Thank you, it's a memory I will treasure with my dad forever." - Laura Mather

Dream American Cars had the pleasure of chauffeuring Neil and Liz on their wedding day on the 24th March 2016.
The first journey was to pick-up Liz in our 1947 Cadillac "Bettie-Mae" from her home address in Southend on Sea, arranged as a surprise by her husband to be.
When I arrived to collect Liz, her father and her Bridesmaids, I could hear the sound of cheering and excitement from the open windows; this was a thrilling moment for Liz, who wasn't expecting a vintage Cadillac to drive her to her wedding.
After the ceremony at Southend on Sea Registry Office, we made our way to Southend/ Thorpe Bay Seafront, where Neil and Liz had their fun photo shoot before heading to their wedding reception at Ocean Beach.
We would like to congratulate Neil and Liz on their wedding, it was a real pleasure to chauffeur for them, and thank you Neil for choosing your wedding car hire with us.
<![CDATA[St. Augustine's Church Wedding]]>Sun, 20 Mar 2016 11:55:15 GMThttp://dreamamericancars.co.uk/wedding-car-blog/st-augustines-church-weddingSt. Augustine's Church Wedding
It was a beautiful fine day in March, perfect for Victoria and Miles's wedding which took place at St. Augustine’s Church; a traditional picturesque Church which has 8 original bells, which you can still hear ringing today. 
This stunning church is located in the middle of Thorpe Bay in Essex amongst lush green trees, but only moments from the beach. After the service Victoria and Miles joined their guests in the grounds whilst their photographer captured some stunning photographs of them both with our 1947 Buick American wedding car - Daisy. While this was taking place, I caught a glimpse of the vicar leaving on his traditional push bike, it was as if we had gone back in time.
<![CDATA[Wedding Cars in Herne Bay]]>Wed, 10 Feb 2016 10:16:17 GMThttp://dreamamericancars.co.uk/wedding-car-blog/wedding-in-herne-bayThe weather couldn't have been better as I drove down to Herne Bay, Kent in our 1951 Buick Super wedding car called 'Daisy'.
The journey went smoothly and I arrived in plenty of time to pick up the Bride and her Father, and we set off to the very quaint 'St. Mary's Church'.
After the service we drove onto the Twin Towers of the medieval church at Reculver which dominate the skyline of Herne Bay for some fabulous photographs. The imposing twin towers of the medieval church is one of the earliest Roman forts built against Saxons raids, and they can be seen from wherever you stand on the beach. Herne bay is enriched with history, and is famous for the bouncing bomb tests which was carried-out during the war.
This was a perfect wedding in Herne Bay, and I will definitely be making another trip to this area to learn more about its history, whilst enjoying in the stunning scenery. 
<![CDATA[Strictly Come Dancing - Chauffeuring Anton Du Beke & Katie Durham]]>Tue, 09 Feb 2016 18:49:04 GMThttp://dreamamericancars.co.uk/wedding-car-blog/strictly-come-dancing-chauffeuring-anton-du-beke-katie-durham
Being big fans of 'Strictly Come Dancing', we were absolutely delighted to receive a phone-call from the Producer/ Director asking if we were available to chauffeur two very special celebrities that were currently competing in the popular BBC television show.
At first we had no idea who the celebrity and professional dancer was, as this is all kept a secret until the day. When we first arrived in Waterloo we were greeted by the production team who gave us a warm welcome and then proceeded to set up our 1951 Buick  'Daisy', with cameras and sound equipment before jumping in the back for a test run to the legendary Cubana Salsa club, where we were due  to chauffeur Katie Durham and Anton Du Beke.
The time passed quickly as we waited in anticipation to meet BBC presenter 'Katie' and Strictly dancer 'Anton'. When we finally met them, they greeted us with open arms and big smiles with Anton wide eyed as he said 'wow what a beautiful car'; this was a big surprise set-up by Katie. 
Both Katie and Anton loved the ride in Daisy as they made banter in the back whilst passers-by looked on in amazement.

On Saturday 17th October, Dream American Cars attended the function “High Society” along with our classic American wedding cars to be displayed outside the prestigious Park Inn Palace hotel in Southend on Sea, to add some 50s glamour at the hotel entrance as the guests arrive!
The evening was based around the musical High Society and was set around the wedding reception not seen in the film. The function was coordinated by G&A Events Ltd who put on a marvellous event, playing particular attention to detail with a sparkling reception, fine dining and live 50’s music whilst they danced the night away.

The evening got off to a flying start, with guest arriving in full 50’s attire having their pictures taken with our American cars; everyone was dressed to impress!

During the night a charity raffle was held in order to raise money for the SOS Rape Crisis centre; we donated a prize of a return journey in one of our vintage American cars to a local place of choice, we are yet to meet our  winners; congratulations! The raffle raised £215 for this great cause.

On the 8th August 2015, Dream American Cars had the pleasure in chauffeuring Trudy and her Bridesmaids in our 1947 Cadillac wedding car named "Bettie-Mae" to The Rayleigh Windmill, which is a stunning 200 year old Grade II listed building.
This was a beautiful ceremony, making it perfect for an Intimate wedding as the Rayleigh Windmill seats up to 20 guests.
All eyes were on the Bride as she threw her bouquet into the air for her eager guests to catch!
After the ceremony Bettie-Mae chauffeured her Bride & Groom onto their wedding reception which was held at the very popular Marco's Tapas Bar, which is famous for its Spanish cuisine and lively atmosphere.
