Cars & Transport

Q. How long do we get the car for?

A. Marcus Sheen says: For however long you reasonably need it! However, some companies may impose limits, meaning you can only hire the car for a certain amount of time, or there might be an hourly charge on top of the standard hire charge. You'll find, though, that reputable companies won't impose unreasonable time limits, meaning you can take full advantage of the car without having to clock-watch.

With no time limit, extra possibilities automatically open up, such as being able to take the bridesmaids to the venue before returning for the bride. Likewise, after the “I dos,” the car can stay for photos or take the happy couple for a scenic drive together.

Having a time limit changes the dynamic, and however much you plan for the big day, things always take longer than you expect, whether it's getting ready in the morning or taking wedding photos after the service. So look for a company that doesn't impose unreasonable time limits. It gives you one less thing to worry about.

Q. How can I add an element of romance into my wedding day?

A. John O’Connor says: As with every aspect of your special day, the choice of car for a Valentine's Day wedding is huge. So what to do? Many things need to be considered when you are selecting your wedding car, including style, personality, budget and sometimes even location. You should want the car to say something about you and your partner on your big day.

There's a wide selection available, including vintage, faux vintage (new but designed to look classic), contemporary modern (Jaguar or Bentley), classic and even VW Campervans. I always suggest people opt for vintage or contemporary modern. What might look quirky today might not age well when you come to look at your wedding pictures in years to come.

Don't forget to look behind the price to see what's included. The journey is just one aspect. A home consultation should be part and parcel, along with little touches to bring added romance to the trip, perhaps a bottle of bubbly and your choice of music.
