It might be near the bottom of your endless to-do list, but booking your wedding transportation is something that should be done sooner rather than later, especially if you’re having a summer wedding on a Saturday, as hire companies can get booked months and even years in advance.
The Traditional Transport
With a fleet of vintage and classic cars from the 1930s to the 1960s, AB Wedding Cars based in North Walbottle make sure you arrive in style.
Go all out with a limousine from the 1980s or a vintage Rolls Royce from Alnwick Wedding Cars. Their Jaguar is a great option for the ushers.
Hidden in an industrial estate in Washington, ATW Wedding Cars provide luxury Bentleys, Rolls Royce limousines and open-top cars from the 1920s reminiscent of The Great Gatsby.
Don’t let wedding guests get lost between the service and the reception, and organise guest transportation from Baynes Travel near Hexham. Their luxurious coaches and cars provide every modern comfort and guests don’t need to worry about being designated drivers!
The classic and vintage cars from Dunns Vintage in Hartlepool cover the whole of the North East area, and come dressed with ribbons and flowers, with a bottle of champagne on the back seat.
Have the perfect fairy tale wedding with a horse-drawn carriage from North East Carriage Co. You can visit their farm in Stanley, County Durham to choose the horse that will lead your carriage.
Alternative Travel Arrangements
Make a statement when you arrive at your wedding destination with one of these fun and alternative wedding vehicles. They’ll make the perfect prop for a wedding picture too!
Travel in style with a black 1976 VW Karmann Cabriolet Beetle or a white and beige 1964 camper van from Canny Campers based in Gateshead.
Lovedubcars in County Durham provide white vintage VW camper vans and cars that are kept in stunning condition. Run by a husband and wife team, choose just one car or order a whole fleet so all your wedding party can arrive in style.
For extra-special transport, hire a vintage bus from Yorkshire Heritage Bus. The fleet includes the traditional red double decker, as well as an elegant cream single decker bus and a 1950s bright green and yellow bus.
It might not be as roomy as a limo, but it’s a lot more fun. Tukxi provide chauffeur-driven Italian tuk tuks that can be decorated to match your wedding theme and are the perfect little getaway vehicles at the end of the night.
American-themed wedding? Why not arrive in a yellow taxi that hails from Northumberland rather than New York. It can fit up to six passengers and adds a splash of colour to wedding photographs.
All aboard this bright red double decker bus from North Yorkshire which used to ride the busy London streets in the 1950s. It’s big enough to accommodate all the wedding party, and take the guests to the reception venue!
