... Mr & Mrs Camilleri   wedding 17 April 2010

Hi Steve!!!!!!!
Hope your well just to let you know Matt and i have voted for you in the Abia awards.  You service was absolutely perfect, you and your staff and your incredible cabs helped to make our day the most special, memorable day of our lives :) from the moment they arrived nothing was to much, they helped with photos (holding umbrellas to stop the sun getting in the way of great shots), helped us girls get in and out of the car,  made sure we always had drinks as it was a warm day, even bought the boys jam donuts in Fitzroy gardens!!! it was absolutely amazing to see such a high level of service!! even going above and beyond the call of duty.
Then when you came and picked us up from The Manor on High, and took us to Crown Towers, well what can i say it was the ride of our lives!!! Made us feel so special, was the most amazing way to cap off the perfect day for Matt and myself, so for that we highly thankyou!!, we have told everyone about you!! and will continue to do so for many years to come
Thanking you again, Erin and Matthew Camilleri

Dear Steven, I wanted to thankyou so very much for making my taxi ride to the wedding so much fun. Your attention to detail, the surprize in the park, the way you managed to relax the guests waiting at the venue before we even arrived, (hehe, all that tooting) was superb. Thankyou also for waiting until the ceremony was over to make sure we had the photo opportunity with your cab was so generous. I will most certainly recommend you to anyone looking for something different to the boring old limo for their event! With warmest wishes, Ali( Mrs Holborn)

WEDDING NOTE.. from the time honoured era of chivalry... The Bride is always on the left arm of her father, so he can draw his sword with his right arm, to protect her  ...which is also why the bride will then stand on the groom's left arm.
