The hire period is three hours from the time we are requested to be at the departure address until the time we leave the reception. If you believe you might exceed this you may book addition time at £75 per hour. If you are unsure of wether you will need addition time please consult us as our experience over twnety one years extends to over a thousand weddings.
Can you organise the transporting of the wedding guests from church to the reception?
Yes. Over the years we have built up a large number of reliable contacts for the hire of Routemaster buses, vintage and modern coaches, mini buses or you may choose a fleet of Mercedes ‘E’ class cars.
Can you recommend other suppliers?
Yes. Please visit the following link for a list of venues and suppliers.
Yes. Either a full or half bottle. Click the button “Champagne” for full details.
Can we supply our own Champagne?
Yes provided you take full responsibility for any damage caused from spilt champagne. If we supply we accept that risk not you.
What happens if it rains?
All our open wedding cars have side screens which are carried in the car.
Do you provide umbrellas?
Yes. All our wedding cars have large plain white umbrellas. Ivory and burgundy can be supplied on request.
If we cancel our wedding car close to the date are there charges involved?
When is the balance due for our wedding car?
The balance is due twenty eight days prior to the wedding. We send you a final invoice well ahead of time.
Is the deposit refundable?
Unfortunately it is not refundable. See booking form.
How much is the deposit?
£50 per wedding car.
Do we get a receipt?
Yes we send you a written receipt and a written acknowledgement as soon as we receive the deposit and booking form.
How do you deal with a large dress?
With nearly twenty years of experience we can easily look after virtually any size dress. Our drivers are trained to help you into the wedding car and smooth the dress so when you sit the dress is creased as little as possible. They will also ensure that the veil does not become detached when you sit back in the seat.
How are they dressed?
Our drivers wear dark lounge suits so they merge with the guests. If they wear uniforms and peaked hats and end up in the photos the eye is drawn to them and not the bride so we always wear inconspicuous clothing.
How experienced are they?
Our drivers have a minimum of five years experience driving wedding cars, some have ten years and one nearly twenty.

Can we view the wedding cars prior to booking them?
Yes. We are more than happy to grant a seven day option giving you plenty of time to send us the completed booking form and the deposit. Please make your option request online through the ‘Wedding Cars’ section, alternatively telephone or email us.
How are they decorated?
All our wedding cars will come with white or ivory ribbons (you may of course supply your own in other colours but please telephone or email us for exact requirements). The cars are not overdressed with bows and flowers, after all the bride is the star of the day not the car.
When should the groom arrive at the church or ceremony venue?
The groom usually arrives with the best man and ushers at least thirty minutes prior to the ceremony as he will be the main meeter and greeter of the guests.
When should she arrive at the church?
The bride should arrive on time. The photographer and the chat with the minister will make her six or seven minutes (fashionably?) late down the aisle.
When should she arrive for a civil ceremony?
She must arrive at the venue ten to fifteen minutes prior to the ceremony as she has to have an interview with the registrar. Please remember that on a Saturday Registrars are usually scheduled for a wedding every thirty/forty minutes or so. We have had a bride twenty five minutes late for the ceremony which was then cancelled as there were so many ceremonies that day. The wedding had to take place much later in the day. At four o’clock instead of eleven thirty!!! DON’T BE LATE.
Can you take the bridesmaids in the wedding cars before the bride?
Yes provided the journey time from house to the ceremony is less than ten minutes. We offer this service free of charge.
Should they arrive at the same time as the bride?
Bridesmaids should arrive five to ten minutes prior to the bride if travelling in a separate car. If they are using the bridal car prior to the bride they should arrive early enough for the car to return and get the bride to the ceremony on time. Arrival of the bridesmaids usually signals to the ushers it is time to encourage the guests to take their seats for the ceremony.
We have lots of bridesmaids and mother of the bride to transport. How should we arrange it?
Really you have four choices:
How far in advance should we book?
Wedding cars are usually very unique. Once you have decided, book immediately as classic and vintage cars are extremely popular and book up well over a year or more ahead. With some cars a year ahead is sometimes not enough!
Will you consider going outside your normal area?
We are prepared sometimes to go out of our normal area but it depends on distance and the age of the chosen wedding car. Please contact us with all wedding locations for consideration and a quotation.
Where do you operate?
We cover most of Surrey and parts of Hampshire, Berkshire and West Sussex. A radius of about twenty five miles from our base in Farnham. If you are not sure call us on 0800 357 9177.
