When it comes to innovative wedding cars, we at Cars for Stars know our stuff. Enjoying nothing more than brides and grooms who experiment with their wedding transport, we were thrilled to see how one Manchester Bride got to the church last week. Getting married in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Pride, the bride wanted to make their mark on the city, wanting to travel to and from the wedding venue in a vehicle that caught everyone’s eye. Well, she did not fail.
Kat Mulhall and her partner, Aimee, wanted to really revel in the ‘Pride’ theme, believing the celebration for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex culture and pride to be a fitting day to have their lesbian wedding.
Chancing her arm, Kat contacted Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), asking to reserve a Metrolink carriage for her bride on their big day. Shocked when the answer was ‘yes’, the organisation went one better, providing the happy couple with a whole tram. Adorning the exterior with stunning rainbow paint, TfGM really surprised the wedding party, allowing them to take extraordinary pictures in their unique multi-coloured carriage. Having snaps inside the vehicle, alongside its driver and outside the tram, they inevitably saw the people of the city stop and stare.
Mrs Mulhall was incredibly overwhelmed when the tram arrived. Talking after the big day, she said:
“The whole tram was decorated and our names were on the outside.
“I would definitely recommend arriving at your wedding on a tram.
“And getting married on Pride weekend too. It’s been pretty hectic but fantastic. As a same-sex couple it’s making our own little statement about being able to make your own choices in life.”
What are your thoughts on arriving at you wedding in a rainbow tram? We would love to know!
