Whether you're starting off your big day with an entrance to remember or heading off to your reception venue in style, the wedding car you choose is just one of the most exciting parts of the day, for both you and your guests. From a classic vintage car to a Cinderella carriage, the choices are aplenty, and we're sure we can find one to suit you.

Wedding Car Ideas

Horse and Carriage

An absolute favourite for many couples - when else are you going to get the chance to experience a horse and carriage ride? You can go for a smart and classic black carriage remnant of the late 19th century, or perhaps you're planning a princess arrival with an elaborate fairytale carriage.

Vintage Cars

Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar - this is your chance to go for the big names. Perfect if you're looking for a classy and elegant arrival.

Alternatively vintage to you could mean a classic Zephyr or Chevy - if you have a 50s or 60s theme for your wedding these would be a top addition!

The Camper

Campervans are making a comeback and we couldn't be happier. Great for a vintage tea party theme!

Whilst you may think this is hen party territory only, all eyes are on you for the day, and if you've got a big wedding party hiring a limo is a great option.

The Bus

We've been to a few weddings where the signature red double decker buses have been hired and they are PERFECT for taking large numbers of guests to ceremonies and on to reception venues.

If you don't like the look of the London bus, the vintage options available are also beautiful.

On Your Bike

Fans of motorbikes? Imagine the sound of your arrival at the ceremony with a fleet of bikes leading the way, or leaving as newlyweds on a gleaming Harley.

Or perhaps your bike should have a little less power...

The Sportsman

Moving away from vintage, maybe you love the streamlined and sleek appeal of something sporty. If they look like this, yes please!

Or perhaps something a little different...

Fans of Jurassic Park? Time to get that Landrover!

Want something bigger? How about a tractor...
