It’s not every day I get excited about a train. Well actually I’ve never got excited about a train until now. I’ve been chatting with the lovely Russell of Lake and Land Train Hire who has a super cute land train that can be hired for weddings and events.
Russell tells me “the train is fully road legal so it can go on public highway” (you just need to get a vehicle special order) meaning you can get guests from Church to reception in the most fun and unique way ever. The Land Train has two carriages which can seat around 36 passengers.
The cost of hire is £1995 for one day with an additional £900 for an extra day. This cost includes delivery, all fuel, insurance and a qualified Driver plus your very own Conductor. The cost is slightly less if you just need one carriage. For a full quote email the man himself at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is a total privilege helping couples create the wedding of their dreams – if this wasn’t special enough, meeting and working with so many amazing suppliers in the industry is the icing on the (wedding) cake – sorry couldn’t resist!
Without awesome suppliers we wouldn’t be able to give our couples the best day of their lives. So we choose who we work with very carefully and a lot of time and effort goes into building relationships with like-minded suppliers that have the same ethos about weddings as we do. Each supplier gives 100% to every couple, 100% of the time, and so we have loved working with them all.
Recommendation is really key to finding and being able to trust your wedding suppliers. Ask around and make sure you have done your research carefully. Although lots of you tell us you hate going, visiting a few wedding fairs really does give you the chance to meet suppliers face-to-face and get a feel for them and their work. Vital in building a good relationship.
Just like us other suppliers will in turn be happy to recommend other companies you might need and you can gradually grow your network of possibles. Make sure you get quotes before you jump in so you are clear what you are paying for and then contrast and compare carefully. Most suppliers we will be happy to give you a free consultation before you decide 100% too.
Here are a few snapshots of work created for The Wedding Dolls couples by just some of our fabulous wedding suppliers over the last year and our little chance to thank them all.
Oh and how can we not thank the brilliant photographers who captured our suppliers amazing work!

Enjoy and happy researching!
I don’t know anything about how cars work. Not a thing. But it doesn’t take a mechanical genius to love a magical, chauffeur driven ride in Shooffeur’s classic 1950’s saloon. The car is stunning and the very lovely husband and wife team, owners Elaine and Michael, will look after every little detail for you, from making sure the car is beautifully decorated with ribbon to having your complimentary champagne perfectly chilled. All ready for you to glide to your reception in fine vintage form!
Based in Whitstable, Elaine tells us “our special chauffeur service has evolved from a real passion and nostalgia for classic cars. We’ve had some beauties and our 1953 Citroën Traction Avant Light 15, Lottie, is our latest love. Fully restored, this beautiful car is spotless throughout. Upholstered in tan, with wool carpets, gorgeous wood trim, and a sun roof to view the stars, she really is the business!”.
Appearing in film classics such as James Bond and the Adventures of Tin Tin, as well as being a favourite of the French Resistance, this car can seriously add a touch of personality to your day – and make for great photos too! Plus Shooffeur are offering our blog readers an exclusive discount of 10% if you book before the end of July 2013.
