It’s all part of your big en­trance, so you’ve got to make it count...


It’s nat­u­ral you want to make a grand en­trance on your wed­ding day, but the dress isn’t the only thing that will make a last­ing im­pres­sion, so will your big ar­rival, there­fore the choice of trans­port should al­ways be a pri­or­ity. Today, brides and grooms ar­rive at their cer­e­mony in style, and you should be no dif­fer­ent. But con­sid­er­ing the wide range of ve­hi­cles cur­rently on of­fer, it’s not a de­ci­sion to be taken lightly. Will you opt for a fleet of tra­di­tional wed­ding cars like Rolls Royces, Mercedes, Bent­leys or Jaguars, which ooze style and class? Or will the beau­ti­ful Beau­ford – com­plete with soft-top roof just in case it rains – lure you? Are you tempted by quirky mode of trans­port – like a camper van, white hack­ney taxi­cab, mo­tor­bike, stretch Hum­mer or vin­tage cor­po­ra­tion bus? Be­cause they cre­ate a real spec­ta­cle on your spe­cial day, many brides and grooms choose a less-tra­di­tional op­tion to sur­prise their guests, and some­times, each other! And just as the rule about a bride wear­ing white is more flex­i­ble these days, so is the colour choice when it comes to cars! White sa­loons are no longer the go-to colour, with black, sil­ver and gold be­ing favoured by soon-to-be-wed cou­ples, and have you seen the pas­tel-coloured camper vans and Bee­tles now avail­able? What­ever you choose, make sure that your cars re­flect your per­son­al­ity. Some car-lov­ing grooms even opt to drive them­selves, and their best man, to the venue in their dream car, whether it is a James Bond-style As­ton Martin, a sporty Fer­rari, or the lux­u­ri­ous Bu­gatti Vey­ron – is this some­thing your other half has mooted? Hir­ing cars to trans­port you (and your groom, sep­a­rately) to your cer­e­mony venue, and then from there to the re­cep­tion, can cost any­thing from £100 (for one car) to more than £1,000, so be sure to fac­tor this in to your bud­get. Be­sides the style of car, there is also the num­ber to think about. How many of the wed­ding party will be trav­el­ling to­gether? Will more than one run be re­quired? What about af­ter the cer­e­mony and on to the re­cep­tion? How long have you got with the ve­hi­cle be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter? Work out all these de­tails be­fore book­ing your trans­port. Once you have ticked ‘trans­port’ off your to do list, be sure to make good use of your cho­sen ve­hi­cle in the pho­to­graphs. Cool cars, what­ever the make or model, pro­vide the per­fect back­drop for pre- and post­wed­ding shots.
