Segway's deliver food for guests at drive through wedding

07 Oct 2020

We were very happy to provide our Segways to this drive through wedding at the weekend, Roma Popat and Vinal Patel tied the knot at Braxted Park in Chelmsford, Essex, in a Covid-compliant ceremony as people watched the ceremony from their cars on big screens outside. The 30-year-old newlyweds then waved at friends and family during a golf buggy tour of the grounds. Guests were given hampers of snacks and hand gel, and could use a website to order food, delivered by Segway Events staff acting as waiters on our Segways.

Popat, a marketing executive, and Patel, an IT consultant, floated the idea of a drive-in cinema-style event as a joke to their wedding planner, Saheli Mirpuri of Saheli Events who specialises in luxury Asian events. The couple, from north London, went to see the film Bad Boys at a local drive-in cinema to research how it might work in practice. By the time of the wedding, which was booked for last Friday, the limit on wedding attendance had been reduced again to 15 in government guidance. “It soon had us all putting our heads together with enthusiasm to bring this wonderful, Covid-compliant wedding together in a way that could allow more than 15 guests,” Mirpuri said.
