LEAF Goes Wild for Wedding

Romantic Nissan kindly added a touch of animal magic to a Dundee couple’s big day by loaning them their dream wedding car and giving it a wild makeover.

Elinor Chalmers and Steve Dent tied the knot at ZSS Edinburgh Zoo on Sunday and wanted their ceremony to reflect their twin passions – animals and electric motoring.

When not out riding her horse, Elinor can be seen driving her beloved black Nissan LEAF.  The couple approached the carmaker and asked to borrow a second car to be used on their special day.

Nissan was happy to oblige and, to help make the day extra special, applied a colourful and eye-catching full body wrap inspired by the wedding’s zoological theme.

The wrap, which was designed by the newlyweds, featured the Edinburgh Zoo’s famous giant pandas and daily penguin parade.

The beaming bride Elinor commented: “How many people can say they’ve turned up for their wedding in a car like that?

“It’s something we’ll remember forever and I don’t think our wedding guests will forget it either.”

She added: “I currently own the 24kWh Nissan LEAF and that’s why the new 30kWh model was my dream wedding car.

“The LEAF is a car that always attracts attention and people are always coming up to you with questions about electric cars but it’s never turned more heads than it did on Sunday.”

A massive congratulations from us!


The eagle-eyed reader may notice the car used on the day had just finished the “North Coast 500” with Plug-in Adventures at the helm.  Read about this adventure here.

This LEAF has quite an adventurous start to it’s life…….
