Grooms on Time is a family business based in Warwickshire with a love of classic Jaguars. We specialise in taking the often forgotten groom from home to the church or venue in a choice of either one of our two iconic red E-Types, or the stylish silver XK140. With prices from £195 it's an affordable treat that is often booked as a surprise from the bride to her groom to take him to their wedding and never fails to impress. The E-Type is a 2+2 sports car which means that there is a bench seat in the back which can accommodate the best man (so long as he's not too tall and happy to sit sideways!). For the bride we have Florence, our 1965 S-Type Jaguar, immaculate inside and out, which ensures that the bride has a smooth and stylish drive to the church and Louie our 1964 Mark II Jaguar which can be hired on its own as a bridal car too or booked to take the bridal party. Both cars are opalescent blue with gleaming chrome and look spectacular. We offer complimentary champange for the bride and groom to enjoy on the way to their reception and would be happy to take them for a short drive after their ceremony if the wedding is held at a venue. Prices from £335. If you are getting married at a venue and do not require a bridal car then we can take the groom in any of our cars and for just a small additional cost stay until after your ceremony so that you can both have photos taken with the car as if it were your 'going away' shots. We have just married signs and tin cans which can be used for this as required. If no car is needed then for a small charge we can offer any of our cars for photos after the ceremony, as if it were the 'going away' shots, complete with Just Married signs and cans tied to the bumper. We generally operate within a 20 mile radius of the business but can travel further too. We offer package deals for hiring more than one car and tailor each booking to individual couples to ensure they have the best service for their special day.

We keep in touch via email to update all the details for the day with the balance then paid a month before the wedding.

The E-Type was tracked by a drone by the groom's friends so he could see his entrance down a winding driveway.
