The End of an Era

Est 1991

Rye Classics  Archive

Well, I guess age catches up with us all eventually, and after much deliberation, Colin and I have decided that 2015 will be our last wedding season. I will reach a "significant" birthday in October (a milestone which Colin passed several years ago), and so we decided that this was the right time to say "Goodbye".

We have thoroughly enjoyed providing transport for countless lovely couples, and it has been a privilege to be a part of so many special occasions over the last 24 years.  

Colin and I will retain one or two favourite vehicles  to enjoy in our retirement, whilst others will continue to be available to hire through their new owners.
Three vehicles (the Rolls Royce, Daimler DS420 Limousine and one of the Beaufords) have joined the Chariots stable. Meanwhile, the blue Daimler DS420 had already been acquired by a collector, and now shares garage space with vehicles formerly owned by the Queen and the Queen Mother. The fate of others may be recorded on this page as and when negotiations are completed.
Who knows? The name of Rye Classics might even live on if somebody wishes to pay me an immense sum of money to be able to claim this fabulous pedigree!

I close with a word of thanks
  • to the lovely people that we have worked for ... going "to work" has always been an absolute joy
  • to our colleagues in the wedding industry, the photographers, the florists, the wedding venue staff and all the others ... we wish you continued success and good health
  • and finally to Colin, whose incredible drive and insistence on nothing less than perfection was responsible for earning Rye Classics its enviable reputation in an industry where every detail matters
