It may seem a little cliché but your wedding day really is one of the best days of your life. Making a commitment to that one special person for the rest of your days shouldn’t be done more than once. What better way to celebrate your commitment to one another other than being surrounded by friends and family as well as being transported around in truly special wedding cars.
The Importance of Wedding Cars in Modern Society
As a kid growing up in the South-East of England, I wasn’t surrounded by particularly “incredible” views or beautiful landscapes.
However, living close to the capital, I was fortunate enough to see some really fantastic cars that would not look out of place in a celebrity wedding. There are so many special wedding cars to choose from – so which would do you take?
As I’ve got older, I’ve been to more and more wedding celebrations. It’s great to see so many great young couples still honouring the tradition of marriage despite an ever-changing society. It wasn’t so long ago that getting married was the “absolute” must if you wanted to call yourself successful.
That’s no longer the case.
Since 2012, there have been fewer marriages despite a rising population. However, those figures have started to balance out in recent years, with weddings becoming increasingly popular (but still very expensive).
What Is The Best Wedding Car to Hire?
A good question really. So how do you decide… are you going to go for something “loud and proud” making sure that your guests know that you’re on route?
Or do you go for something a little more sophisticated and elegant? It’s a hard decision to make, but one that needs concrete approval from both bride and groom.
As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been to my fair share of wedding receptions and celebrations. I’ve got a pretty good idea of what engaged couples tend to consider, and founding Royal Rentals has only helped me improve that knowledge.
If you want a special wedding car for your big day, then why not consider one of these fantastic wedding car hires in London?
- Bentley GTC
- Bentley Mulsanne
- Lamborghini Huracan
- Rolls Royce Dawn
- Rolls Royce Ghost
- Rolls Royce Wraith
As you can see, both the Bentley’s and Rolls Royce’s tend to dominate our suggested list of special wedding cars – of course, the final decision is entirely up to you.
Bentley GTC – The Best of Both Worlds
Whenever I think of a Bentley, these days the first thing that tends to come into my head is class and elegance – with a hint of luxury. However, for some couples that’s not exactly what they’re after.
Some couples tend to embrace the opportunity to hire a real sports car for their day, taking in aggressive engines, spine tingling acceleration and of course the prestige value of the vehicle on offer.
Fortunately, the Bentley GTC can offer the best of both.
Despite its luxurious interior and streamline design, the GTC also has an aggressive side. Kind of like a Swan. Beautiful, elegant but aggressive when it needs to be and for the right reasons.

Bentley Mulsanne – A Great Traditional Option to Have
One of our favourite special wedding cars available to hire.
If you’re a little apprehensive about the weather for a wedding here in the UK and don’t fancy the prospect of hiring a convertible vehicle, then the Mulsanne is a guaranteed safe bet if you’re looking for something that can dominate the road, making you the centre of attention.
Depending on the model you hire, the interior really will make you feel like royalty during your transport. Whether you’re taking a 10-minute trip or a 60-minute transfer – the Bentley Mulsanne really will make you feel like your being transported on Air Force One.

Lamborghini Huracan – An Eye Catching Beast
I mentioned earlier that some engaged couples prefer to arrive in a “loud and proud” automotive beast that can really “wow” their guests.
The Lamborghini Huracan does exactly that.
Unfortunately, if elegance, grace and an articulate arrival are on your agenda, then I’m afraid the Huracan is an option that you should knock off your list of special wedding cars. However, if horsepower, torque and a lot of noise is what you want… you’re welcome.

Rolls Royce Dawn – Instantly Recognisable
I’ve been lucky enough to be behind the wheel of one of these beauties.
Rolls Royce has manufactured some of my favourite cars to date and they really do make unbelievably special wedding cars. Whenever, you see a celebrity wedding on TV, 9 out of 10 times, the bridal party arrive in a luxury Rolls.
Of course, if you’re hiring a Rolls Royce, you’re guaranteed luxury and a smooth ride and that’s all great. However, nothing can beat the feeling of stepping from a Dawn in front of hundreds of guests as you approach the alter.
The Rolls Royce Dawn really is a special wedding car.

Considerations to Make for Wedding Hires
If you’re hiring a wedding car, then there are a few things that you need to consider before you commit to making any bookings and paying deposits.
For example, some luxury vehicles require a specific length of time on a driving license before you can hire and drive the vehicle.
Most luxury vehicles will need to have the driver aged between 25-70 years old.
Remarkably, even if you are a driving instructor that has completed driving instructor training and make a living from teaching others how to drive, you may be limited to certain vehicles.
Just make sure that you check the fine print before you commit.
Rolls Royce Ghost and Wraith – Ultimate Luxury
I mentioned earlier that Rolls Royce has produced some of the best cars that I have had the privilege of driving… and the Wraith and Ghost are firmly placed on that list of special vehicles.
Both of these fantastic machines are elegant, sophisticated and reliable.
These beautiful Rolls models produce a special feel and you instantly feel a connection with the car as it takes you to any location. No matter what condition the road or pathway leading to your venue is like, you wont notice it.
The design of this fantastic car will make your bride feel like the princess she deserves to be on your big day.
