companies will attempt to carry out 2 or 3 weddings in one day with the
same car. We guarantee that each of our cars carries out only one
wedding per day, therefore you will not be rushed by our drivers and
because your car has not been delayed at another wedding, you can be
assured it will arrive on time.
personally own and operate all the cars detailed on this web site making
us one of the largest vintage wedding car suppliers in the area. We
always have back-up transport available.
to avoid disappointment! We start to take bookings approximately 2 years
in advance of the wedding date. The earlier you book, the greater
selection of cars you will have to choose from.
cars can be viewed undercover, at one location in our own lit premises
and at any time, but by appointment only please.
companies offer two door cars with fold-over front seats; these are
totally unsuitable for bridal use. Not only do they have insufficient
room in the rear, but the access in and out of the vehicle is extremely
ungainly! All our cars have four doors, with the limousines offering the
widest doors for easy access in and out of the spacious passenger
quality of the interior of the car is extremely important for both
comfort and appearance - most of our cars have been recently re-trimmed
with the finest quality leather hides. Many are trimmed in lighter
colours to provide an open, airy and light interior, most important for
those photos of the bride and groom inside the car.
our limousines have extra drop down seats in the rear compartment for
bridesmaids, etc. This enables you to use perhaps the same car for the
bridesmaids party to the church and then for the bride and father, but
please remember, if the journey to the church is approximately 15
minutes, then the bridesmaids will have to be at the church for nearly
40 minutes prior to the bride arriving. In this instance therefore, we
would normally recommend the use of a second car.
consider also that whilst 2 trips to the church in one car may be
entirely feasible, it is almost always the case that the one car can
only perform one trip from the church to the reception venue with the
bride and groom. This leaves the bridesmaids' party obtaining lifts with
other guests, which may not always be either practical or desirable. We
operate more Daimler DS 420s as second cars than any other wedding car
company in the area, as we regard these cars as essential back-up
service to our main vintage cars.
consider the size of the car company you book with. It is a fact that
each year about 2 companies cease trading with little or no notice.
(Last year it was 4!) This is primarily because the companies with only
2 or 3 cars are unable to operate successfully or profitably over a
prolonged period of time. We are probably the longest established
vintage wedding car hire operator in the area and we are fully committed
to our business. (At least six of the companies currently advertising in
Yellow Pages are either not taking bookings, no longer exist or are in
the process of selling their cars - FACT!)
cars carry umbrellas for that unexpected shower; all the drivers are
uniformed with hats and suits and carry mobile phones.
stated are between Southend and Upminster, and Grays and Chelmsford. We
may charge extra for exceptionally long journeys or locations outside
the above areas.
our work now comes through recommendations. We would be happy to show
