Classic Wedding Cars

If you want to arrive in style with a wedding car that has character and appearance which will make your photos stand out, then consider hiring a beautiful old-timer!

Hiring a classic wedding car to take you to your ceremony and reception is a fabulous idea if you are planning a classic or vintage-style wedding. With just a few adornments such as white ribbon or fresh flowers, your vehicle will look impressive and enhance your wedding photography.

How to choose a type of car

Popular classic wedding cars include Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Daimler, and Jaguar. They are very elegant and glamorous, but if you want an old-timer that is cute and quirky, then opt for a vintage VW or Citroen which will add a touch of whimsy to your wedding day. Your transport should correspond with your wedding day theme, so opt for the style and colour which goes well with your venue and decorations. You can use your car as a backdrop for a post-ceremony photo shoot, so keep that in mind when choosing the style. Remember that your wedding dress needs to fit into the car, so avoid small vehicles if you are planning to wear a ball gown.

How to choose a car hire service

Once you decide what type of vehicle you are looking for, browse for local car hire services who have it in their range. Find a renowned company which has exceptional credentials and go and visit their premises to inspect the cars before you make any bookings. Your wedding car should be in excellent condition and perfectly safe for driving, but you might want to check out if it meets your aesthetical criteria inside as well as outside. And if it is not just the car itself you are looking for but a whole package of services including a uniformed driver and red carpet, then make sure that the company offers everything you need and has experienced drivers.

How to decorate your classic wedding car

Most wedding car hire companies provide some decorations, but you might want to source out some adornments yourself. Popular decorations include ribbons, tulle and artificial blooms in pure white or any other colour featured in your theme. Vibrant floral arrangements are also a great idea, especially if you are planning a rustic country wedding and want to use pretty garden blooms to prep your wedding car for an outdoor photo shoot. And if you want to add something special that will make your car truly stand out, why not attach balloons or paper pompoms.
