COVID-19 Update
We understand how difficult it is to plan a wedding right now, so we have introduced some changes to assist you. We normally like you to visit our depot to see our vehicles so you understand their vintage style elegance, space they offer, and which is the best choice for your day. As this is not possible right now, we can arrange a video call over WhatsApp, Skype or Zoom so you can have a virtual tour. If you book a car and then visit us later when restrictions have been lifted, we will gladly swap your booking if you prefer a different car once you have seen them all. We are confident that you will love the cars but if for reason you don’t want to proceed, we will refund your deposit. If your wedding day has to be postponed, we will roll over your deposit and hold the price and terms for up to two years to allow you to re-plan. In the event that we don’t have an available car to your taste on the revised date we will refund your deposit immediately. Our mission is to support you with your planning and provide as much flexibility as we can.

Full Description
Vintage Dreams Wedding Car Motor Company has a fleet of 1930s & 1940s style vehicles, coach built specifically to travel in style for picture perfect wedding transport. All of our cars and omnibus (bus) are exceptionally spacious and are based upon modern engines and running gear that provide robust, reliable and comfortable operation but with the classic appearance of a bygone elegant age. These superbly presented vehicles are kept in excellent condition and inspection is welcomed. The fleet ranges from a long wheel based open top tourer, Imperial Landaulettes (folding rear quarter roof) which can carry up to 6 passengers (excluding driver), a regal style limousine with folding rear roof and an omnibus (bus) with interior wood panelling that can carry 8 passengers. We supply ribbons and handmade bows (for you to retain as keepsakes) to compliment the colour scheme chosen for the wedding day. Our chauffeur pool is a friendly team and they provide a courteous service dedicated to ensuring everything goes smoothly and on time. Only one booking per car per day is accepted so there will never be any pressure on time. A champagne opening service can also be provided, and all of the cars have built in bottle holders or ice buckets. The vehicles are equipped with modern sound systems with Bluetooth and memory stick interfaces, so you can play your personal choice of music. As a professional wedding transport business, we carry fully comprehensive fleet insurance. This includes public liability and wedding cover. We recommend a personal viewing appointment of the vehicles at our transport depot near Manningtree railway station. Most people can’t believe how gorgeous & spacious the vehicles are until they have seen them with their own eyes. To assure you about the level of service we provide, please take a few minutes to read ‘What our customers say’ on our website.

I cannot fault them...
“I cannot fault them. Driver was extremely professional, very polite. Vehicle was at a show room standard. Me and my now wife are so happy with the service. Even pre-event, booking was an easy process with an option to view the vehicle personally before agreeing a date! Thank you again guys! You have given us so many fond memories!“

We had the car Belle, and she was beautiful.
“We had the car Belle, and she was beautiful. The chauffeur was dressed for the occasion and made us feel very special. We had so many comments on our wedding day about the beautiful Belle and she really made our day. From the time we spoke with Nigel till our wedding day the communication was out of this world. Could not have asked for more. This made our wedding a magical one. Would highly recommend!!!!“

We hired 'Emily ' for our wedding day
“We hired ‘Emily’ for our wedding day and were delighted with both the service from Nigel and the car itself. Nigel provides a reliable, professional, yet friendly service. This was especially welcome as we had rearranged the wedding at very short notice. The car was spotless and provides great photo opportunities, especially with the roof down! Thanks again Nigel for all your help. We really appreciated you going the extra mile and helping the day run smoothly.”

Wow! What a fantastic car Lilly is...
“Wow! What a fantastic car Lilly is, it certainly turned some heads along the high street and got the bride safely to the church on time! Nigel was a great driver and very attentive to our needs during the day. We felt like royalty as we left the church with the top down! We would definitely recommend Vintage Dreams.“

Amazing service....
“Nigel and co made our wedding Day so special with the beautiful cars Lilly & Milly – they were gorgeous and made our day. I was in a panic as it was raining and I did not want to get wet but Nigel had come prepared with large ivory umbrellas and escorted me safely to the car, so I stayed dry. I thought that was amazing. Also a few days before our wedding we received an amazing card from Vintage Dreams with some lovely words and a lucky sixpence, that was also a beautiful touch. Thank you so much for your amazing service and wish you all the best for the future. With love”

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

When the bridal party was one hour late as the bride's dress split! The seamstress had to be called out. We called the groom waiting at the church to advise him and he said not to worry as he was watching all the comings and goings over his RING doorbell. When we eventually got to the Church we said to the bride, 'Look you are so late now another five minutes won't matter' and made sure she was calm before getting her out of the car!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Professional quality caring stylish happy

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our vehicles and the lovely comments we get about them from customers and members of the public. We are often asked to stand by in our chauffeurs uniforms to pose for photographs!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan and book suppliers early.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

We always offer the handmade bows in the personalised colours as keepsakes and Mums love it! So pleasing.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

When we first receive an enquiry we like to engage using WhatsApp messages or a call to ensure that we fully understand what is needed so we can provide an accurate quotation. If circumstances allow we then prefer that customers come and visit out transport hub to inspect the vehicles. This way they understand their qualities and what is right for them plus the full service offered. If a visit is not possible then we can use a video call instead.

What is the most original entrance you have given to a wedding couple?

We transported the groom's party and the bridal party plus Mums & Dads in four vehicles including two dogs!

What is your dream car and why?

We can't answer that as we have a fleet of wedding cars - it would be like asking who our favourite child is!!!

What would be your No. 1 tip for arriving in style?

Pick your own style and embrace it!

What is your favourite movie car chase?

The Italian Job (original 1969) BUT fortunately we are more sedate and careful with our passengers
