The transport

Bus and Us, find them outside the Showground

Silverline Limousines, find them outside the Showground

Silverline Limousines & Wedding Cars will always promise to go the extra mile to deliver their lovely customers' requirements. When their bride, the current 'Queen Miss UK' got married, she decided on her drive to the reception in her wedding Landaulette that she was feeling a little peckish and wished to visit the local McDonald’s drive-through - so the Silverline chauffeur took a detour and tended to her needs. 


Awayadays, find them outside the Showground

Vintage never goes out of fashion so what better way to transport the bridal party in glorious style than in an iconic 1960s bright red double-decker London Bus? Bedecked with ribbons and bows and personalised signage for the happy couple, Awayadays will ensure everybody arrives together in style and offers truly memorable photos of the perfect day.
