The most observant among you may have noticed that cars were quite a big deal at our wedding – well, you only have to look at my banner pic to see that! As I married a Ford aficionado who simply refused to have any other car for our wedding day (I swear, he would have married the car itself if allowed) hiring a car was simply a no-no for us. But I wasn’t complaining. Part of my husband’s personality is his love of his car and therefore it just had to feature in our wedding. Luckily enough, he also had a ready-made Capri-mad convoy ready to assist and we therefore had a fantastic Ford line-up on the day!

However, I’m well aware that most brides don’t happen to have a vintage/retro car just sitting waiting to be their transport on the best day of their lives so I’ve been searching my little heart out for alternative transport ideas for all your RB readers. Some are classic retro. Some are gloriously gothic. But all are great. Here goes!
Custard Campers – VW Camper van
There are some beautifully restored camper vans around right now and as RB readers know, I love promoting a local business. So, when the lovely Kerry from Custard Campers contacted me, I couldn’t resist showing off her beautiful rhubard and custard camper available for hire for perfect retro themed weddings & events.
Here’s some information on Delia’s wedding packages:
Delia loves nothing better than getting all dressed up with wedding ribbons and escorting brides, grooms, bridesmaids or even guests to the wedding venue.
We offer Delia as either a chauffeur driven wedding vehicle or she can of course be booked as a self-drive vehicle (in which case normal hire charges would apply) The wedding package quoted covers areas within a 50 mile radius of Chelmsford, Essex, however we are happy to travel further afield but additional mileage charges will apply.
– Delia will be dressed in her finest ribbons to match your colour scheme (or flowers if you wish to provide them)
– Collection of the bridal party (or Groom & Ushers) from their home.
– Party driven in style to the wedding venue.
– Bottle of Champagne
– Delia likes music while she drives, so bring your favourite songs on an ipod for the journey.
– After the ceremony the Bride & Groom will be chauffeured to the reception venue.
Plenty of time will be allowed for photos before and after the ceremony.
All this for an amazing price of £285!!
For those of you with more gothic tastes, this limousine and Sheriff’s car is just amazing! These guys are even famous – appearing on Never Mind the Buzzcocks recently with Alice Cooper!! Rocking up to your wedding in one of these will truly make your wedding as individual as you are!!
Probably the most planned & biggest event of your life so why settle for something that isn’t really you. Why should you have the traditional white dress & the white or silver Rolls Royce etc. Whether your having a gothic wedding or something a little different to the norm our limousines are the way to make the difference.
We don’t have set times & prices for weddings as we tailor each wedding to suit your needs. You can have the car or cars for as long as you want them. For the Bride & escorts from home to wedding venue. For the groom & best man to wedding venue. For Bride & groom to reception. You tell us what you need. Photo sessions can be as long as you like.
