10. Bentley Mulsanne
The Mulsane is the flagship of the modern Bentley fleet. This latest luxury status symbol from Crewe is a car to be seen in, or to be driven. With plush leather interiors and highly polished walnut throughout you could be mistaken for thinking you were inside the Savoy. It doesn’t get much better than this !
The Ferrari is a striking Italian two seat sports car so it is ideal for the Groom’s transport and will certainly blow the cobwebs away. The Groom’s car is usually only required for the drive to the ceremony thereafter the Bride & Groom will depart together in the Bride’s car.
8. American Cadillac
This Cadillac is from the 1950’s era. Built when Elvis was King and Bill Hailey ‘rocked around the clock’ and everything in the USA was Big including the space inside these massive vehicles. The impressive tail fins are something to behold. Watch out if it’s reversing.
7. Beauford Convertible
The 30’s Style Vintage Beauford Convertible is affectionately known as the ‘Fairy Tale’ car. This modern car built in a vintage style was modelled after the 1930’s Duesenburg. Easy access is afforded from running boards on both sides and a modern engine increases reliability.
6. Morris Minor Convertible
The Morris Minor is a very pretty car which was produced from 1948 to 1971. It quickly became one of the most popular family cars, with many upgrades made over the years. As with all family cars from that era the space inside was smaller than today’s vehicles so always worth viewing before booking.
5. Vintage Rolls-Royce
The style of the 1930’s is reflected in this impressive limousine with running boards for easy access. It has very photogenic brass headlamps, whitewall tyres and spoked wheels. Inside the main cabin space is impressive when two are travelling but occasional seats can be used to increase the passengers to six. Many can be found in traditional White.
4. Austin Princess Limousine
The Classic Austin Princess Limousine is a massive seven passenger seat wedding vehicle. It is very adaptable and can carry just two passengers with more legroom than a London Taxi. Alternatively, with use of the occasional seats these classic cars can carry six passengers in the main cabin and one in the front next to the chauffeur. Ideal luxury transport for the Bridesmaids or the Bride and Groom.
3. Rolls-Royce Phantom
No wedding would be considered lavish enough without the latest flagship model from Rolls-Royce. The Phantom remaining at the pinnacle of luxury motoring with nothing to touch it. This famous British icon has always been known as The Best Car in The World. it is easy to see why, its famous column stature radiator with the Spirit of Ecstasy mascot is known the world over.
