Sorry, but that sounds a bit contradictory - "had no problems when we tried to start the car" & "tried to start after running it for a while"?

Is it starting or not? Perhaps you're having a really good time at the wedding reception - so suggest you check back tomorrow after the hangover! :-D

Check for a blown 20A fuse on the under bonnet fuse box. It's a bit under rated, but blowing it is the first sign the starter is on borrowed time. Is it a 1.6 diesel? Starter change is 'fun' on these!!
