“By making our collection of vehicles available for hire at special events such as weddings, it is a great pleasure to give everyone a chance to enjoy our transport heritage and marvel at what great machines these vehicles truly were and still are. Vintage buses always had a sense of community as nearly everyone used them for their daily commutes back in the day. The buses allow the party to start early as everyone gets to know each other comfortably on board. Our professional drivers and conductors are mostly enthusiasts too, so really help to provide that authentic vintage bus experience for the passengers. We have the passion and expertise that it takes to deliver seamless and nostalgic transport for our clients. We aim for perfection every time.”

Our Heritage

 

Our group chairman and owner, Jonathan Jones-Pratt spent his childhood surrounded by his fathers enthusiasm for vintage transport, in particular Bristol L type single deck buses which operated in the 1950’s. Jonathans passion for Crosville Motor Services in particular was influenced by the bus his father bought for preservation, ex Crosville KG118 (KFM767) and at just 16 years old Jonathan acquired his fathers beloved old bus, for restoration.

Jonathan has continued to grow his impressive vintage collection which now includes vintage buses and coaches many of which are ex Crosville Motor Services Bristol buses, steam locomotives, steam traction engines, vintage tractors and classic cars. Jonathan who is also the chairman of the West Somerset Railway PLC has a passion for heritage preservation and is extremely dedicated to ensuring the transport from our past is saved and restored to a high standard for future generations to enjoy.

This family passion for vintage transport has passed through the generations to Jonathans daughter Elena-May, who you will often find enjoying days out on the buses and steam engines with all of the family.

Zoe and the team look forward to welcoming you on board our wedding buses.
