So this is certainly not my usual kind of blog entry and not a usual kind of photo subject either. There are no glowing brides in gorgeous dresses, no dapper-looking grooms or scrumptious cakes, but I couldn’t resist documenting this experience. After all, it’s not every day I get to drive such a phenomenal car.
What an absolutely fantastic time I had not only driving, but also photographing this fabulous Jaguar XE the other weekend. This was my very first, hopefully not last, Jaguar encounter and I made the most of it by visiting some of my favourite locations and sharing this fun experience with my loved ones.
It was a total surprise for my husband to be, so you can imagine the look on his face when he saw it parked in our driveway, completely priceless. We spent majority of our weekend on the road with big grins on our faces and enjoying a bit of luxury.
This is the kind of car that will make you fall in love with driving again. Not only you’ll be looking for any excuse to take it out, just like we did, you’ll also soon realise that “going for a drive” could easily become part of your daily routine. I cannot recommend this car enough. Once in it, you’ll quickly appreciate the exceptional comfort of drive it offers. As for appearance, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
After picking it up from the Roger Young Jaguar and Land Rover showroom in Saltash, I set off for the gorgeous Cornish coasts of Whitsand Bay and Rame Peninsula. The views this area offers are spectacular and I quickly stopped over by Polham Fort, in which I have had a pleasure to photograph a wedding before. Of course, this coastal drive would not have been complete without a visit to the rather grand looking Mount Edgcumbe House.
That whole weekend was packed with exciting mini trips. On Saturday, Adam and I went to explore Dartmoor followed by a visit to the beautiful Two Bridges Hotel, another excellent wedding location. On Sunday we opted for a relaxing family picnic and a bit of active fun on the moors. As you can see, my little nephew brought his own supercar to race in.
Before I returned the car on Monday, we took a little detour and drove to the Royal William Yard for a quick morning coffee and a couple of snaps.
I must say, this signature Jaguar red looks quite spectacular contrasting with the greys and stone colours of the Yard.
