I now pronounce you Apollo van and wife

A Wolverhampton bride was driven to her wedding by her father in the groom’s new Apollo Blinds van.

Helena Hamblett admitted it was her idea to make the short trip to the wedding venue in husband-to-be Matt’s new Apollo Blinds van because it had flowers all over it – and they would save around £200 not having to hire a posh car.

“When Matt turned up in his new van I loved it and asked if he’d let my dad drive me to our wedding in it and he said yes,” she said.

“Like a lot of other families right now money is tight because Matt has just started the Apollo Blinds franchise but we didn’t want that to get in the way of having the happiest day of our lives so we found a few ways to keep the costs down.

“The van also symbolises that Matt’s business will be a big part of our lives and, as his new wife, I’ll be right beside him as he gets Apollo Blinds off the ground in Wolverhampton.”

Matt said he thought his bride-to-be was joking when she made the suggestion.

“I was gobsmacked – which for anyone who knows me is a rarity – but it has saved us valuable cash by having her dad drive her to the wedding in the van,” he said.

“It’s also a good opportunity to keep advertising the new business because the van is very distinctive and I’m sure lots of people will do a double take when they see a bride being driven to her wedding in it.” (kbp)
