On your wedding day you’ll want to arrive in style. To guarantee you make an unforgettable entrance have a look at these ideas, from a horse and carriage to a tuk tuk

1. Classic choice: A classic car is an elegant option for the bride and groom and a vintage Rolls-Royce or Bentley makes for stunning photographs. An iconic British MINI Cooper is a trusty going-away vehicle or for that Hollywood feel go for a high-end sports car.
2. Ride on: A tuk tuk adds flair to the festivities. These three-wheeled vehicles can be decorated with flowers and bunting to match your colour scheme. You could even hire a fleet for a bold bridal party entrance at the reception.
3. Go boho: For a festival or bohemian theme wedding, a vintage VW camper is fun – particularly if you’re marrying at a countryside or coastal venue. Make sure there’s room for the bride’s dress and ask for champagne to be added to the hire charge.
4. Glitz and glamour: For a touch of celebrity pizzazz, a limousine adds the wow factor. And if not for the big day itself, a party bus is a great option for the hen or stag do or to get your guests to the wedding after-party.
5. Sky’s the limit: A helicopter is a real showstopper. Speak to venues about helipads and landing spots nearby and surprise guests with an arrival or departure fit for an action movie.
6. The fairytale begins: What could be more romantic than a horse and carriage ride? Pick decorative flowers and ribbons for a picture-perfect arrival and if it’s a cooler day take a gorgeous shawl or faux fur cape for the ride.
7. On the wild side: For couples who want to show off their wild side, a motorcycle and side-car makes for fantastic photos and puts a spin on the arrival or departure.
8. Taxi! For a smaller wedding, arrange for a fleet of black cabs to transport everyone to the ceremony and then the reception in a head-turning procession.
9. Wheels on the bus: Vintage buses are a great way to get your guests from the ceremony to the reception. A Routemaster adds a celebratory feel to the journey and is a guaranteed icebreaker – why not organise a sing-song or games en route?
10. Made for two: Vintage push bikes are popular wedding props – so why not go a step further and use pedal power to get from your ceremony to your reception?
11. Walk this way: If the church and reception venue are close, save some pounds, burn some calories and lead a procession of guests – it makes great pictures.
12. Sports channel: If you prefer horsepower to a horse and carriage to take you to your wedding, maybe channel your inner James Bond for the day in an Aston Martin.
