We just both want to thank you hugely for the huge and massive generosity that you showed us at our wedding! Having your beautiful DS at Stratford on our very special day meant absolutely everything to us!

We could not have wished for a more wonderful car. I am also particularly thankful for the beautiful photos that you took.

Who We Are

1969 DS Convertible

History of DS convertibles

For your wedding or civil partnership, you will want to travel in style and comfort. I have 33 years experience of driving the classic Citroen DS. 

My favourite toys as a child were model Citroens and I still have them in my collection today. I joined the Citroen Car Club in 1978 and have been attending events regularly since then.

I bought my first DS, a 1970 DS 21 Pallas, in 1984 and have since owned a range of Citroens, including a CX22 TRS and a VISA 17RD.



 

Travelling in this Citroen DS Convertible will bring French chic and elegance to your special day.

This car was built on the banks of the Seine in the centre of Paris at the original Citroen factory at Quai de Javel. 

​The factory relocated in 1974 and the site is now the Andre Citroen Park.  

Special features of this car include: 

  • hydraulic suspension

  • semi-automatic hydraulic gearchange

  • hydraulic inboard brakes

  • directional headlights

  • it underwent a total engine rebuild and rewiring in 2016

Thank you for taking Olivia - you have literally saved the day, we wouldn't have known what to do without you.

      Best wishes         Jo and Dean x

​Many thanks for your driving, use of your beautiful car, organisation and the great photos. 


It really was the best day of both our lives and you were an important part of it, and for me a personal dream in having a ride in a DS was fulfilled! I am glad you had a good time too,

        Thank you again        Mr & Mrs McMillan

Hi Simon,

We just wanted to thank you for bringing the DS for our wedding - it is such a beautiful car, everybody commented on how amazing it was. It made Rich's Dad's year, he has not stopped talking about it since!

You were so much more than a chauffeur on the day - you took some beautiful photographs for us and you were so much fun to have around. We would not hesitate to recommend you and your beautiful car to anyone.

      Many thanks       Rich and Kate x

We feel very lucky to have discovered Simon and his stunning Citroen DS for our vintage styled wedding.

Not only was the car just what we dreamed of but Simon was the most wonderful chauffeur, accommodating, thoughtful and nothing was too much trouble. He even took some gorgeous photographs which we treasure.

Thank you Simon for looking after us and being part of our special day.
