With a plethora of elegant, luxurious vehicles available to hire, arriving at your big day in style is absolutely guaranteed. Whether you have a passion for fast and furious sports cars or adore the idea of a traditional, vintage set of wheels, the array of ideas can be somewhat overwhelming – you really are spoilt for choice!
While being faced with a spectacular selection of wedding cars is fantastic, it can make your decision rather tricky and most definitely time-consuming. With this in mind, we have shortlisted a guide to our top 10 wedding cars, ideal for a celebration in the sunshine, to give you that little extra inspiration!
Our Guide To The Top 10 Wedding Cars
When researching and beginning to narrow down your favourite choices in wedding cars, it’s imperative to keep in mind that the vehicle must be not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical. If you only have a short journey to your venue, then you have considerably more freedom in terms of vehicle choice. Those who must travel more than an hour to their ceremony or reception should opt for a vehicle that will be comfortable to sit in for a long period of time. When your nerves are beginning to build with the thought of walking down the aisle, the last thing you want is to sit through an unpleasant, uncomfortable journey.
Along with comfort is also the importance of hiring a vehicle that perfectly complements your theme. Although, of course, your final choice should be what you love the most, there are many different cars that may not entirely fit your theme. For example, a traditional-style wedding would be best suited to a Rolls Royce, whereas a more modern, contemporary wedding would be able to get away with a vibrant Lamborghini or Ferrari.
So, now that you have the most important contributing factors in mind, it’s time to begin your quest to find the perfect wedding car. Here are our top ten!
1. Rolls Royce Dawn
With unrivalled beauty and an instantly recognisable appearance, the Rolls Royce Dawn remains one of the most popular choices in wedding transport. Rolls Royce is known for never creating half-hearted designs; the interior is always guaranteed to be just as stunning as the sleek exterior. While the go-to Rolls Royce model is often the Phantom, the Dawn is perfectly fitting to a Summer wedding thanks to its convertible roof and roomy four passenger seats. The Dawn allows you to enjoy the rare British sunshine, breath in the fresh air and most definitely turn up to your big day in style, roof down and hair blowing in the wind.
Not only is the Rolls Royce Dawn a keen choice for arriving at your ceremony, but also departing your reception after an evening of good food, great dancing and even better company. Make the most of the convertible roof and wave goodbye to your guests like royalty!
Royal Rentals are proud to offer our clients chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce Dawn hire for their special day. With a free delivery and collection service, along with years of experience providing wedding car hire in Luton, we aim to make your big day just that little extra elegant!
2. Volkswagen Campervan
Calling all couples with a passion for all things retro, this one is for you! If you cannot think of anything better than spending your Summers at your favourite music festivals or dream of exploring the Gold Coast living the beachside lifestyle, then we couldn’t think of anything better than the Volkswagen Campervan!
Due to their vibrant array of colours and quirky personality, the Volkswagen Campervan is instantly recognisable and guaranteed to make your wedding stand out from the crowd. Opting for a Volkswagen Campervan is perfect if you’re hoping to transport the bridal party or all groomsmen to the venue together in one vehicle as it is the biggest of our wedding car ideas. Distinctive features of the Volkswagen Campervan include large swing-open doors, high seats and an upright cabin meaning there is plenty of space for even the most extravagant of princess-style wedding dresses!
3. American Cadillac
Incorporate a subtle touch of 1950s Hollywood to your special day through American Cadillac hire! Known to be the number one choice in vehicles for the biggest names in the renowned Rock ‘n’ Roll era including the likes of Elvis Presley, the Cadillac is perfect for a vintage themed wedding.
It is your choice whether you opt for a dusty pink, Grease-style Cadillac or a sleek black model taken straight from The Godfather movie; your final decision should be mainly dependant on the theme and colour scheme of your wedding. It is essential to keep in mind that when opting for a vintage vehicle, it may prove trickier to track down a hire company available for your wedding date. Models are limited and are no longer manufactured, which means it is imperative to begin your search in advance to ensure that you aren’t let down due to lack of availability.
American Wedding Cars have a wide selection of vintage vehicles available for hire, so we suggest beginning with taking a browse through their website!
4. Lamborghini Aventador
Release your inner Dominic Toretto and arrive at your wedding ‘Fast and Furious’ style with the timeless Lamborghini Aventador. The Lamborghini Aventador is absolutely guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd; your guests will be able to hear the roar of the engine miles before you arrive in style.
Named after a well-known Spanish fighting bull, Aventador intertwines with the tradition of a Lamborghini. The leading sports car manufacturer, as always, has carefully constructed a design that is not only recognisable from a distance but is also available in a rainbow of colours. When opting for the Lamborghini Aventador, both you and your partner are guaranteed an adrenaline-fueled ride due to its ability to reach a maximum speed of more than 200mph – you most definitely want to consider a chauffeur for this journey!
5. Bentley GTC

Due to its convertible capabilities, similar to the Rolls Royce Dawn, the Bentley GTC makes the perfect Summer wedding car.
Bentley is known for its prestigious reputation and luxurious aesthetics; we can safely say that the GTC does not disappoint. With a sleek leather interior and metres of polished veneers over the dashboard, you most definitely do not compromise style when opting to let the roof down and feel the wind through your hair.

The V12, in particular, achieves the perfect balance of a ‘Bond-style’ charm and the elegance required to arrive at your big day with class.
