A Blessed Wedding Anniversary

Dec 6, 2007
The year was 2005 and my parents were coming up to their milestone 70th wedding anniversary.

The family got together to discuss what we could do to mark this auspicious occassion and the first option we looked at was the age old tradition of using a listed material. Unfortunately, the celebration material for reaching 70 years of wedlock was a disappointing platinum. Not an unpleasant metal in itself but still just a metal.

We discussed a surprise party with a platinum coloured theme. This was rejected as being not so easy or special! In fact, a surprise party hardly seemed like a good idea at all. After 70 years parties are no surprise. We wanted something more tailored to themselves. Something to mark the occassion more memorably was called for so we did a little research.

It turns out that our parents had got married in a beautiful little church in the Scottish countryside. This was not only where they lived for the early part of their marriage but where they both grew up to work at the Rolly Royce factory in Hillington. Whilst looking to hire a wedding car, their boss had kindly lent them the Rolls Royce Limousine Cockshoot.

This gave us an idea of a step back in time theme for their wedding anniversary. We found the church was still functioning and booked a blessing for them. We even booked them a couple of nights in a very old nearby hotel. But we were still looking for something a little more special.

My parents had moved before my siblings and I came along to a town 50 miles away from Hillington and were still there now so we decided to look at special ways of getting them to their blessing. We decided luxury car hire was the way to go and researched wedding cars on the internet. Many choices were available for wedding car hire and we managed to find a 1930 Rolls Royce Limousine Cockshoot in primrose and black. We felt this would be quite special as there are only two originals left in existence.

Things couldn't have gone better. On the day, the wedding car hire company turned up at my parents house to whisk them off to the church. It turned out that this was exactly how they first met! Both of my parent s were working on the very first Cockshoot vehicle ever made when they met. Thanks to the restoration and care the wedding car hire company had paid to this vehicle my parents were able to have a wedding anniversary to remember.
