For an alternative wedding
Inspired by Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
If your wedding is full of character and quirky details a VW Campervan could be the perfect transport choice. With room for all the bridal party, choose a Camper in your wedding colours as a fun backdrop for photographs.
To complete a fairytale theme

Is there anything more magical than Cinderella’s horse-drawn carriage? And after the two royal weddings in 2018, a horse and carriage is very à la mode right now. If you have younger guests in attendance, ask your supplier to do a few extra rides around your venue – parents will be more than pleased.
For the history lover
Inspired by Murder on the Orient Express (2017)
The UK has more than 100 heritage railways – research the nearest to your venue and enquire about train or tram rides for your guests. If you are having an evening ceremony, a trip on a steam train could always make for a fun activity to keep everyone entertained earlier in the day.
For all your friends and family

A double-decker bus is a great way to get friends and family from A to B with minimal stress. Most Routemasters seat 72, so depending on the size of your wedding party you may need to arrange more than one trip. Dress with flowers and ribbons, and ask your photographer to take some couples' portraits on board like Hillary and Devindra.
For a wedding with flare
Inspired by Grease (1978)
If you love musicals or want a transport #throwback, take inspiration from classic movies. The original Greased Lightening was a 1948 Ford Convertible Deluxe. Or turn to the iconic coming-of-age movie American Graffiti which featured a 1932 Deuce Coupé, 1958 Chevy Impala and a 1956 T-Bird, to name just a few…
For a sleek and sophisticated celebration
Inspired by James Bond

Since the DB5 featured in Goldfinger (1964), Aston Martin has become synonymous with 007’s signature style. Go for a classic style or for a more modern take, opt for the DB10 as featured in Spectre (2015) or DBS V12 which starred in Quantom of Solace and Casino Royale.
For the bride who loves a Rom-Com
Inspired by Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

If you are a fun-loving, romantic bride, take inspiration from this iconic wedding film and go for a vintage MINI Cooper. Just make sure you don’t start your special day like Hugh Grant on his way to Angus and Laura’s wedding…
