Stagecoach awaits bride to be

25 May 2017

A happy bride travelled to her wedding venue on a Stagecoach bus.

Hollie Childs married Thomas Keen on Wednesday at Whitstable Harbour’s East Quay. Instead of taking a horse-drawn stagecoach she opted for the double deck variety.Stagecoach Awaits Bride To Be

Hollie, who stayed at her grandmother’s house to prepare for the big day, caught the 13:03 ‘Triangle' bus from the bus stop at Westbrook Farm.

“Stagecoach buses have always been special to us” said Hollie. “My fiancé and I met almost ten years ago on the number 6 bus from Canterbury to Herne Bay and we spent many, many hours travelling the whole Triangle route during school holidays.”

Travelling with the bride were her mum and grandmother as well as her four bridesmaids. Hollie said, “When we were discussing how to get to the venue I thought, why not take the bus and travel as ordinary passengers?”

To help make the trip special, local Stagecoach manager Danny Millis made the bus fit for the occasion, decorating it with white ribbon and posh bows.
