10 classic vehicles for the perfect wedding

Wedding bells will soon be ringing for the newly-engaged royal couple. If like Harry and Meghan you’re planning your own special day, here’s a selection of classic cars to consider for your wedding…

1. LTI Fairway/Austin FX4 

Nothing says British classicism like a London black cab. The former taxi looks good, oozes vintage and has lots of space to accommodate brides with a big white dress in tow.

2. Daimler DB18 Special Sports 

Stunning coachwork on this drophead coupé, coupled with an elegant bench front seat is why brides and their dads love a refined DB18.

3. Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 

When the Monégasque people gifted Prince Rainier III of Monaco and Grace Kelly a new 1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Landaulet as a wedding present it sealed its fate as one of the most timeless wedding cars

4. Volkswagen Type 2 T1 / Microbus 

For couples who like to shirk tradition and welcome a splash of colourful hippiness to their day a two-tone Kombi is a welcome addition and has 12 seats to accommodate most, if not all, of the bridal party.

5. Rolls-Royce 20/25hp 

Gatsby-style weddings are truly on trend and a 1920s’ saloon is the perfect addition of a deco-decadence.

6. Aston Martin DB6 Volante

When Kate married William and became the nation’s princess, the wedding was a showcase of beautiful classic cars. However, the jewel in the line-up’s crown was undoubtedly Charles’ Aston Martin DB6 Volante which the prince and his new bride drove down The Mall.

7. Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray 

If you fancy bringing a dash of Americanism to your wedding, then a Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray with its V8 roar could be just the motor to transport you on your big day.

8. Alfa Romeo Spider 

The romance of the Italian Alps is brought to life in this chic roadster, that has just two seats – perfect to transport the happy couple after the proceedings.

9. Morris Minor Convertible 

If you’re imagining tin cans and streamers running behind you as you make your way from the church, then a convertible Morris Minor has a vintage romance to it.

10. Jaguar XK120 or E-type

Jaguar is an emblem of quintessential British life, and for that splash of excitement on your wedding day then arriving in a glamorous open Jag is guaranteed to get your engine going.
