Brides and bride-grooms looking to arrive in style on their special day could find the transport of their dreams at a special wedding show this month.
Vindis Bentley is among the 140 exhibitors at the EDP Wedding Show at the Norfolk Showground on February 23 and 24 - and on both days the Norwich-based luxury car company will be holding a charity raffle giving show-goers the chance to win a ride in a £267,000 Bentley Mulsanne on their wedding day. Over the two days people will also be able to take a look at the array of other luxury vehicles they can hire from Vindis Bentley - including the New Continental GT Speed, a couple of Porsches and possibly a Maserati. The company is also the sponsor for the EDP Wedding Show's catwalk shows that will showcase the latest bridal fashions on both days.
Steve Millward, head of Vindis Bentley, said the company was looking forward to being part of the show, and when asked why a Bentley is the ideal wedding day transport, he said: 'It's prestige, it's heritage, it's British. It is just the most beautiful car that's ever been built in this country. It is the highest level of luxury.'
He said the company hoped to raise between £4,000 and £5,000 for East Anglia's Children's Hospices through the raffle, and that last year the company raised £10,500 for the charity through various fundraisers.
He said: 'EACH is an extremely worthy cause, giving the children the care that they deserve, and also their families, at what is an extremely tough time. The people that work at EACH are just fabulous.'
