Established in 1996, driven by his people skills and his love for classic luxury vehicles such as Rolls-Royce and Bentley, our founder ‘Michael’ created a new wedding car hire service on the South Coast of the UK. Following his initial success, Michael steadily grew the business and shared his love of not only luxury vehicles but many other classic and unique vehicles.

Read more about the founder of Premier Carriage and the many famous people he has met throughout his life.
As at 2020, some 24 Years later Premier Carriage is still standing strong and a leader in its field. We’ve received many awards, and we’ve also had a few defeats and frustrations along the way and can only assume there will be more to come but the joy of seeing a Bride’s happiness, and sometimes nervousness as she embarks on her last journey as a single person, the final private moment a Father has with his daughter en-route to church, and of course our passion for our classic cars outweigh it all.
As we head into the future and in our changing times it is not only the Bride that we transport, same sex couples are also tying the knot and no matter who we transport they still show their happiness, the occasional nervousness and tears of joy. Thank heaven for tissues!
Michael is still involved in the business, perhaps not as much as before but he still puts his chauffeur’s cap on and drives his classic vehicles. He also helps mentor other small start-up wedding car hire companies in training them with his chauffeuring skills and customer service. Some have now become very successful with a fleet of vehicles.
I am in the office Monday to Friday each week, and out driving my own classic cars at weekends. I must remember to take some photos when we next have a ‘sunny’ outing and add them to this page.
Below is a photo of the main Premier Carriage office with our ‘Security Team’, although give them a meaty treat and you’re in !
