THE TRADITIONAL CHOICE:
Having worked on more than 19,000 weddings over the last 26 years, and with a fleet of 750 vehicles, you can rest assured you’re in safe hands with Premier Carriage. It has an extensive collection of vehicles, ranging from the most luxurious modern wedding cars through to the 1950s and 60s, and way back to the vintage age of motoring – think brands like Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Beauford, Mercedes and more. Many of its classic and vintage cars have even been used in major film and television projects. Available for hire across the UK, all the cars are chauffeur driven and come decorated with traditional wedding ribbons in the colour of your choice.

MOVIE BUFFS WILL LOVE:
Star Car Hire
For something fun that’s guaranteed to get guests talking, Star Car Hire has a bespoke fleet of famous TV and movie car recreations available for weddings and more. The range includes the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, James Bond cars, Starsky & Hutch's Gran Torino and many more.

THE RETRO CHOICE:
The White Van Wedding Company
The White Van Wedding Company provides a chauffeur-driven VW Camper wedding hire service at a reasonable price. The two vans – affectionately known as Georgie and Jimi – date back to the 1960s and have been lovingly restored, while the team’s wedding decoration experts will help transform them further using your favourite flowers and chosen colour scheme.
