Everyone knows how difficult it can be to find a taxi when you need one most. When you have plenty of time, there are always several on hand, but there’s never one around when you are in a rush. Well, a woman in London faced a situation more desperate than most after three different cabs cancelled on her when she was trying to make her way to her own wedding.
… The flustered bride ended up running 45 minutes late for her big day after realizing taxis aren’t as easy to catch as she had imagined. Thankfully, she found another way to make the short ten-minute journey to the church: the kindness of a stranger.
… Marksteen Adamson was driving to meet some friends when he spotted the bride-to-be in the street. When he stopped at a pedestrian crossing and saw the bride looking confused and flustered. Then she approached him while gesturing. That’s when Mark learned three taxis had cancelled on her, and she had no way of getting to her wedding. Luckily, Mark had space in the back of his Land Rover and he was more than happy to help her out. Here's what he wrote on social media:
Was driving through london traffic to visit friends for a reunion lunch in South East London when I stopped at a pedestrian crossing and saw a bride looking confused and flustered. I started filming as I thought it would be a great shot seeing her cross the road in her full attire. Then she saw me and started walking towards me and gesturing. It turns out that she and her brides maid and team had been trying to order Uber cabs but three cabs had canceled at the last minute and she was 45min late for church. Everyone, most importantly her husbsnd to be, were wating at Holy Trinity Bromton for her to artive. She asked if I could give her and the group a lift, and so they jumped in to my landrover and I drove her to church. In our short time together we had lots of quick short conversations about everthing and got to know eachother a little better and new friendships were made. After I dropped her off I heard the sound of the organ ring out and knew everything was going to be alright. It was a beautiful sunny day.
