Who is the bride supposed to travel with in the car?
On the way to the wedding, the bride usually travels with her father or someone close, that is walking down her down the aisle. On the way to the reception, she travels with her new partner.
How many cars should we hire for the wedding party?
This depends on the size of your bridal party. The groom and groomsmen usually arrive at the ceremony early so they can hire a car also, or if the venue isn’t far, the one hire car could take the groomsmen first then go and pick up the bridesmaids. Whatever you decide on, make sure that there are enough vehicles to transport all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen to your photo location & the reception. Many of our Classic & Vintage cars can seat from 6 to 10 people, making it a more cost effective option than hiring multiple cars.
Should we hire vehicles to transport family members to the wedding?
The father of the bride will probably be in the car with the bride, but it’s up to you whether or not you want to hire additional cars to transport other family members. Our Wedding Cars can also supply Luxury Sedans, minivans and/or coaches so you can ensure that family members and out-of-town guests are looked after and will get home safely after the reception.
When should we book the vehicles?
This depends on type of vehicle that you are wanting, and the date of your wedding. Our Classic & Vintage cars are often booked out between one and two years in advance, so it is important to start looking for a wedding vehicle as soon as you have set a date. The modern Stretch Limousines & Luxury Sedans are more readily available. The peak times for weddings is March to June & September to November, but the earlier you book, the more choices you have and it is just one thing less you have to worry about during the planning months ahead. Our Wedding Cars can offer you a payment plan to help with your budgeting.
Should the car remain at the venue during the ceremony?
If you want to guarantee that you will have a way to the photo location and reception, it is a good idea to make sure that the driver waits at, or near, the ceremony venue. Some hire companies book multiple weddings on the same day and don’t allow for emergency situations. The last thing you want is to find that your driver has disappeared to pick up another couple, only to have broken down along the way, leaving you stranded at the ceremony venue. Our Wedding Cars only ever book one wedding per car & driver on the day.
What if there are mechanical problems with the wedding car on the day ?
Our Wedding Cars takes every precaution to ensure your wedding day is stress free.
All vehicles are checked regularly and vehicles are maintained to the best and highest standards.
However, just like modern cars, the unexpected can happen.

Can I be sure that the cars I book with your company are the ones I am going to get on the wedding day?
When booking wedding cars it is a very important for you to visit the business and NOT only inspect the vehicles but touch and sit in the cars. Photos online can often make bad cars look really good, so always ask to view the vehicles.

Do you base your costing on time or distance ?
The cost of your wedding cars is based on time. The time starts from your home, not from our base and any relocation charges are inclusive in the quote you receive.
It doesn’t matter how many trips we may do, say from the ceremony to the reception, the cost is based on the time you book the vehicles for.
How long should I book my wedding cars for ?
Our friendly Wedding transport consultants will help you with this and offer advice on times. We use Google maps as an indication, but there are many things that need to be taken into consideration ie: time of day & traffic, loading & unloading of passengers, ensuring you are comfortable, put out the red carpet and travel in a sedate manner to the location. Our older cars are meant to be seen when driven, it is a leisurely drive, so sit back & enjoy the ride and feel like a Princess on your special day.
Always check with your photographer as to how long he/ she expects to take with photos
Should you have your wedding and reception in the same location , it is often a nice idea to have your wedding vehicle wait till after the ceremony is over to include it as a prop in your photos.
As there is a minimum hire time of 2 hours so there may be no additional cost for this.
What happens if we go overtime, what are the charges and how is it paid?
You will have paid all of the hire fees upfront, and you would have been advised about extra time charges in the initial quote. We always confirm with you the week of your wedding, the information & timings again and at this stage you will have a good idea if you have allowed enough time. You will have met with your photographer & reception venue & have a time line in place. We allow you 15 minutes before extra charges apply and your Chauffeur will discuss this with you if needed. It is a condition of the booking that we have your Credit Card details on file in case any overtime is incurred. We won’t charge your card until we email you with the additional cost. In saying this though, this is a rare occurrence and rarely happens.
