Make a Stylish Getaway in these Vintage Wedding Cars

Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III

We’ve talked before about how to choose your wedding car. It’s the sort of detail that can extend your theme to the last minute, leaving your guests with a “wow” view as you swan off on your honeymoon.

The first wedding car is believed to be this Daimler Wagonette, which was used in England in 1903. With a top speed of just 18km it’s likely guests got bored of waving the happy couple off and headed back to the bar before they’d made it down the street, but there’s no denying that it would have been more impressive than leaving on foot or horseback.

The appeal of vintage wedding cars has not waned in the last century. Here are some of our favourites to inspire you.
