Having served his apprenticeship at Lucas, Melvyn obtained both his City and Guilds in motor vehicle mechanics and automotive electrical he then worked for 7 years for a large haulage company in charge of electrical maintenance. In 1983 he decided to “Go it alone” and started his own car repair garage which he successfully ran for 6 years up until 1989 when he decided to change direction and realize a long term dream and started Exclusive Wedding Cars.
His background in vehicle maintenance and repair enabled him to hand build the modern replicas you see today. Not only does Melvyn build his own fleet (With exception of the Daimler) he has also been commissioned by other customers to build their cars.
His decision to use vehicles that have been hand built with modern components and replica body’s instead of genuine vintage vehicles was taken for both commercial reasons as well as reliability. He was conscious that a genuine vintage vehicle was more likely to break down and even if the repair was a simple fix getting the part wouldn’t be leading to the car spending days / weeks out of service thus leading to disappointments.
Anne’s background was in administration at a large PLC and has carried her skills over to the business. Anne is in charge of all things admin from initial contact with customers through to the companies accounts. As well as her admin duties she leads by example. Whenever the cars have appointments she is up early cleaning the cars ensuring that they leave the garage immaculate.
Both Melvyn & Anne would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting the website.
