After the vows have been said, the rings have been exchanged, and the band has packed it in for the night, the time comes to drive away off into a new married life – often in a car picked especially for the occasion. But what goes into picking out the car – or other form [...]

Winter is a wonderful time of year for a wedding, and first choice for many couples who adore the serenity and beauty of this frosty season.
