Full Description
Every bride and groom will, at some point, consider how they and their guests are to arrive at their chosen venue. For some it is a short journey from home – perhaps even walkable if the weather is fine, but for others it maybe a longer trip – with the added complication of directing guests who may be unfamiliar with the area and then there is the ever growing issue of parking and accessibility. So, what are the options? Have you considered hiring a classic bus or coach? A real head turner especially when decorated with flowers and ribbons co-ordinated with the chosen colour theme and even the destination blind displaying ‘Wedding Special’ – it really couldn’t be better! Then there is the atmosphere that is created by traveling on a classic vehicle from a bygone era – it cannot be surpassed and helps to keep everyone happy – from young children to the older generation who ‘used to travel to school on a bus like this!’ Discerning brides and their bridal party could chose to arrive on a bus (where would you find a car to seat all those cute bridesmaids & pageboys) then join their whole wedding party on a return journey. Why wait until the reception to get everyone together? Let the celebrations commence!

The guests were absolutely thrilled to bits to ride in vintage coaches and was a great surprise to them.
Iain and I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your wonderful service at our wedding. The guests were absolutely thrilled to bits to ride in vintage coaches and was a great surprise to them. It really added to the day and made it extra special. All the guests loved how you teased them about the surprise trip on the steamer and all loved your personality and humour. My only regret is that I didn't get a trip on them myself!
