Get to me to the Register Office on time – by Rainbow tram!

I think many reading this website will agree that if you have to get married then you might as well get there in style and what better to do so than by tram?! Whilst in Blackpool you can hire a heritage tram to the business the rest of the country isn’t quite as lucky but that didn’t stop a couple in Manchester from managing to hire a M5000 to get them from Stretford to Manchester City Centre for their ceremony.

Kat Mulhall approached Transport for Greater Manchester about the possibility of reserving a section of tram to transfer herself and her wedding party to St Peter’s Square before the ceremony where her wife-to-be Aimee was waiting at Manchester Register Office. TfGM actually went one better by putting on a special tram – with one of the two Rainbow Trams selected.

Chris Jackson, Director of Service Delivery at KAM, said: “Congratulations to Kat and Aimee on their wedding day and for their future together from everyone at KAM. At KAM, customers are at the heart of everything we do. When asked if we could make a tram ride the bride’s wedding transport, we had to take it one step further and offer a special service as a complete surprise. We’re delighted that Metrolink took Kat to the ceremony on Pride Weekend and hope we made this special day just that little bit more special.”
