Consider shuttling everyone around in something with a little more personality. A limo isn’t your only option. You’re going to the chapel…but wait! How are you getting there? What about your maids—or your guests, for that matter? Will you choose a sleek silver Rolls-Royce, a pimped-out party bus or a bicycle built for two? Whether you want a unique getaway to express your style, or a fun way to give your bridal party and even your guests a lift too, there are lots of hot options for your London wedding cars.
For thrill-seeking couples looking for an edgier ride, two-seater sports cars are all the rage. From the Maserati GranSport to the Lamborghini Gallardo, these ultra-exotic sport car hire in London will get you to the party in a flash and will have you speeding into the twilight at the end of the night. They often come in daring hues like red and yellow, so take your wedding colours into consideration when renting. If you’re going to be driving one of these yourself (rather than hiring a driver), make sure to check on all liability issues before jumping behind the wheel. Another thing not to forget about these stylish cars: You’ll probably need to rehearse your exit ahead of time—getting out of a lowrider gracefully requires some skill, especially in a dress.
If you’re celebrating by a lake or ocean, make a chic escape in a sleek speedboat or yacht while your guests wave you off from the shore.
Trend Alert: For a more casual affair, couples are having fun with their water-based getaways by rowing off together in charming canoes or even on paddleboards.
An antique car like a vintage Rolls-Royce is a glam way to get yourselves to the ceremony and reception—and it will create the perfect backdrop for classic black-and-white photo ops. Some hot models to consider renting: the Chrysler 300, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud or Bentley S2.
Trend Alert: Though a Rolls will always be in style, many couples are choosing antique cars with a little more character. Imagine the photos of you two riding off in a vintage VW Beetle, a brightly coloured VW van or even a weathered antique pickup truck.
If you’re not into the idea of being chauffeured into the sunset, ride away on a motorcycle, Vespa, golf cart or tandem bike. You’ll get frame-worthy photos and a wonderful memory to look back on. Just make sure you practice riding on your vehicle of choice in a dress and heels before your wedding day!
Experience the ultimate fairy-tale ending in a horse-drawn carriage. Buggies can fit between two and six passengers, so you can even bring your honour attendants along, or rent a few carriages to lead the entire wedding party on a royal-style procession.
Trend Alert: Pedicabs are emerging as a sort of metropolitan carriage — a playful getaway perfect for city couples who love the idea of a classic horse and buggy but prefer a more modern feel.
