Sally and Peter Downing, Liverpool
“One of my most enduring memories of our wedding day was being chauffeured through the city centre in a convertible Corniche, with the top down on the way to the church. Richard was at the wheel, and imparted a great piece of advice, that my dad and I should walk down the aisle to the altar very slowly and try to look at all our guests waiting for us… which we did… and it was very emotional.”
“We were blown away by the standard of service we received. It was second to none and we had a perfect day."
LEA CARS started in 2002, after I fell in love with and bought the Rolls Royce Corniche convertible from Lord Sainsbury. When others had the same reaction to the car and said it would be perfect for weddings, I researched the wedding car offerings in Lancashire and realised there was a need for a wedding car business that offered something just that bit more special and I believed I could provide it. After all I have been married three times myself!
So the company was formed by my wife and me – Carole and Richard Lea – to fill a clear gap in the luxury wedding car market in the Lancashire and surrounding areas. In fact the whole of North West England. .
Having extensively researched other company’s offerings and striven to incorporate the best of them we created LEA CARS. We then added many extras of our own. Please visit our Services page for what this can mean to you.
Since late 2002, LEA CARS has provided chauffeured cars for nearly 1000 weddings and special occasions. Over that time we have continuously added to our service package so please have a read of what our wedding couples have to say about our services on the Testimonials page.
In June 2012 our Morris Minor was featured in the June ‘Queens Diamond Jubilee’ edition of Lancashire Life with a model in 50s clothing promoting ‘Britishness’. See the photos below.
On a personal note, as a member of Rotary, I have a strong belief in community and the ethical responsibility of business to think of more than just the bottom line. From the beginning of LEA CARS, I determined to give something back by supporting a charity. When a family friend died of cancer several years ago, we learned about Rosemere Cancer Care, the charity that provides a large range of services to cancer sufferers and their families in Lancashire. Rosemere assists patients and their families both at home and in its centre, helping them cope, beat the disease and maintain the best quality of life possible. Our friend was well-served by them in his last few months, and I shall be forever grateful for that.
We are, therefore, extremely proud to support Rosemere Cancer Care and urge you to find out more about this remarkable organization. LEA CARS supports their various events and also sponsors a special event each year. Rosemere Cancer Care relies entirely on voluntary donations.
