Spritely Wedding News


Last weekend Sprite Club Member and Bugeye Owner Hamish Bubner married Linda Beagley at the family property near Maitland on Yorke Peninsula.

The ceremony was held in one of the paddocks, with guests seated and enjoying the view of the property. Also the weather was perfect for the ceremony.

As is the wedding tradition both the bride and Sprite wore white, and the Bugeye was joined by other classic vehicles including a Ford Mustang and “Barge” Fairlane.

Hamish had attempted to drive the Sprite from Adelaide, but it needed a small amount of “flat-tow assistance” to arrive at the property in time for the wedding.

On behalf of the Members of the Sprite Club of SA, we wish Hamish and Linda congratulations on their Special Day and years of happiness and memories together
