Frequently Asked Questions
do your prices include?
- We only book one wedding per day for each car and
provide a fixed price service based on the wedding location and
an agreed itinerary. Our service includes decorating cars
with ribbons and bows in a colour of your choice and vehicles are
driven by our professional, friendly uniformed drivers.
Providing the picks up are not too far away from the church or venue,
we can provide one more journeys to include the Grooms party, Bridesmaids
and Bride, with no hidden extra charges or unreasonable time limits
to complete the booking.
Most people underestimate how long bookings take, particularly the
time required for those all important photographs after the wedding
ceremony. But don't worry, if things overrun the car will
wait and you won't be charged any extra.
you own your own vehicles?
- Yes we do. We are NOT a booking agent and own
and operate a unique collection of 9 classic and vintage style cars,
some seating up to 7 passengers.
we arrange a viewing before booking?
- Yes of course, we would be delighted to show you our
collection of cars and there is no obligation to book.
wedding ceremony and reception are at the same place. Do we
really need a wedding car?
- Why not, it's a wonderful way to arrive in elegance
and style in one of our fantastic wedding cars. The driver
will wait for those must be seen photographs with the car following
the wedding ceremony and then take the happy couple for a drive.
The drive is a popular option, being the only time during the days
proceedings that they will have time together.
you provide discounts?
- We provide midweek and low season discounts.
Depending on how many cars are already booked on your wedding date,
we may be able to provide a two car discount as well. So for
the best multi car discounts early booking is recommended.
you provide free champagne?
- Some companies may offer complimentary Sparking Wine/Bubbly
as an incentive to book with them. However the law states
with the Licensing Act 2003 that no company can legally supply any
sort of alcohol, even if it's claimed to be a Wedding Gift /Complimentary
/Free or anything else, unless that company has a license to provide
Fortunately there is a solution and we can legally serve Champagne
supplied by the Bride and Groom. This works rather well anyway,
since most couples have a preference for a particular good quality
brand. Just give your favorite bottle or half bottle of Champagne
or Sparkling Wine to the driver on the day and they will serve it
at the appropriate time. We don't charge any extra for
if it's raining, do you provide umbrellas?
- All cars carry at least one umbrella for your convenience
and available for you to use, but please return it to the driver.
If required the driver can hold the umbrella for the Bride and Groom
during photographs at the church or venue, they are there to help.
the drivers fully suited?
- All our male chauffeurs will be fully uniformed in
a navy or dark grey suite with matching hat.
advice do you give when booking a wedding car?
- Whichever company you propose to book with, always
ask if you can view their cars prior to booking (even if you don't
want to). If they decline it's likely that they don't
have the car to show you, or the car is in poor condition.
A reputable company that own their own cars will always be happy
to arrange a viewing.
Book with a company that own and operate several vehicles of their
own and will be responsible for providing the service on the day.
Check they have back up vehicles in case, for any reason, your car
is unavailable on the day.
When comparing prices check with the supplier if there are booking
restrictions, time limitations, or additional charges that you may
need to take into account.
Check their Google and Facebook for 5 star reviews. Don't
take wedding awards too seriously.
When booking, always ensure the company has all the necessary details
regarding the requirements for your wedding car and they confirm
that in writing. Check the booking confirmation for any errors,
ensure the pick up times, addresses and post codes and contact details
are all correct.
you transport children?
- We take safety very seriously. There are legal restrictions
when transporting children in wedding cars, particularly children
under the age of 4 years. Some of our cars are fitted with
lap seat belts and together with a cushion booster seat can be suitable
for transporting young children. Under no circumstances will
we allow very young children or babies to be carried on passengers
laps in any of our wedding cars. Please contact us if you
need further advice on this.
you provide cars for different types of weddings?
- We provide cars for traditional church wedding, Civil
weddings at a hotel or specialist wedding venues, as well as Asian
weddings of all types. Just contact Chris or Craig anytime
to discuss your particular requirements or complete our Enquiry
you provide cars for school proms and special occasion hire?
- We would love to do that, but unfortunately due to
insurance and licensing restrictions set by UK Law we are unable
to provide cars for any Private Hire bookings. Private Hire
incorporates School Proms, Birthdays, Theatre Trips, Airport Transfers
The vehicles shown on our website are fully insured and legal for
Weddings, Marriage Blessings and Civil Partnerships.
We don't know of any wedding car company providing cars for
Private Hire, but if you do need a car here are a few tips to help
you in your search:
1) Ensure the car hire company and its vehicles are fully licensed
by their local authority.
2) They have full Private Hire and Reward Insurance (not just Wedding
3) The drivers are licensed by the same local authority as the cars.
If you book a vehicle for a prom or special occasion hire without
the company having Private Hire insurance and licensing in place
the passengers will be travelling uninsured!
happens if the car breaks down?
- Our cars are very reliable and meticulously maintained
and a breakdown is very unlikely. However, if for any reason
the car is unavailable on the day we will provide a suitable alternative
far in advance should cars be booked?
- To ensure a good choice of vehicles, booking at least
one year in advance is recommended. You can never book too
early, but you can leave it too late!
is your booking procedure?
- First of all contact us for a quote and availability
and then complete our wedding booking form, which you can find at
the bottom of our Home Page. We ask for a £100/car deposit
and the balance is paid 30 days prior to the wedding. We can
take deposit payments by personal debit/credit card, cash or bank
