George: So, what are we up to?
Lee: We are going to take you through the challenges of what a chauffer does on the day of a wedding. How he performs, how he drives the car, looks after the bride and how he attends to the bridal party and hopefully we’ll get you traveling through and go to the bride’s house and we’ll pick her up and we’re going to a venue.
George: A real live bride?
Lee: A real live bride.
Lee: No room for error.
George: And this is really something quite special ride? It is the truly way to arrive with a style.
Lee: Absolutely! I think its dream. Many brides also dreamt of horse and carriage for their big day, but obviously climate is a huge thing over here and traveling distance doesn’t always allow them to use horse and carriage. So the next best thing is definitely a nice classical vintage white Rolls-Royce.
George: Right, first things first. I heard there’s going to be an outfit to go with this baby.
Lee: We have a chauffeur’s suit for you to wear and cap and gloves. So you will look the part and driving the part, yes.
George: Perfect! Ready to go, come on then. This way then, yeah?
George: Wow! These really are vintage cars huh?
Lee: They are certainly. This is the 1932 Open Tourer or convertible generally modernized. And this is ‘37 Limousine. They go out as a bridal car; it’s up to seven people. So it’s quite for obviously a large part of bridesmaid.
Okay George, let’s get you suited up and ready to go.
George: Well viewers I’m not sure about you but I feel rather dapper! Thanks for the outfit change Lee.
Lee: No problem at all George. Right, from here I’m going to take the wheel. We’re going to go for a short drives and I will tell you about how the car drives.
Lee: And then we will find somewhere suitable to pullover and then it’s all change. You have control and you will call for the rest of the day and we’ll get on the wedding day.
George: I’m very excited about it. Let’s go for it!
Lee: Wonderful! Run the other side.
George: Smart interior.
Lee: Lovely even.
George: I’m liking it. Very luxurious. So, are we ready to drive?
Lee: Absolutely. Are you ready?
George: Let’s go for it.
George: Give me top three tips on being the perfect chauffer as part of my challenge today.
Lee: You obviously got to handle the car very well. Experience does help in your case today, just take a bit more time to think about what you do and just drive twice as slow if you need to. It’s very important to have a nice smooth drive.
George: I’ve always believed in a nice, slow ride.
Lee: The second is obviously personality. We are not a company who stand by the door and “in you go madam” and “out you come madam” We choose. It’s quite important to try and read a bride on the wedding day—their personality and how they’re feeling. You can get a sense of how nervous they are. You have got two really must be smart and punctual.
Okay George, my part is now done. It’s now time for you to take the wheel and get on the rest of wedding day.
George: Thank you Lee. I’m really excited about this challenge. Okay viewers it’s time for me to now get behind the wheel and see if I can manage this beauty smoothly and safely.
I just hoped it’s not such a bumpy ride when the bride gets in. So let’s go!
You look absolutely stunning! Are you nervous? In you go.
Lee: Okay George, we’re here on the final leg of your challenge today and let’s get the bride to the ceremony on time.
George: All ready?
George: All set on the back?
George: Perfect! I’ll try to make it as smooth as possible.
Lee: I must say, you’re doing very, very well today.
George: Thank you.
Lee: Very smooth.
George: Are you quite impressed?
Lee: Would you need a new job?
George: I’m loving it.
Lee: So once again, you need to take—
George: Ms. Kim our beautiful bride.
Lee: Keep the tail off the ground.
George: Now, before you walk down the aisle to say I do, very exciting, I need to ask you the big question. Did I pass the challenge?
Lee: I think you say yes don’t you?
Lee: You did very, very well.
George: Despite the bumps on the way, thank you very much guys! Can I give you a little kiss? Best of luck to you.
Kim: Thank you so much.
