FAQ – Elegance Wedding Cars why don’t you show a set price? Costs do vary and depend on which car you choose, not all the cars are the same price. We do need to know where the pickups are and how long you want the car before we can send you a quote.
Our cars are maintained to the highest standard they are checked, cleaned and prepared on the day before each wedding. Classic and Vintage cars are far more basic than the modern cars of today where it is almost impossible to repair a fault on a modern car without the aid of a diagnostics computer. We do reserve the right to substitute an alternative vehicle in the unlikely event of an accident or breakdown etc, wherever possible.
It’s your big day… why not? It’s wonderful to get to your ceremony in elegance and style. The wedding car will wait until the ceremony finishes for those all important photo shots of you and your wedding car.

This is a FAQ – Elegance Wedding Cars get asked do you supply free champagne. We would love to but it is against the law.
It is a criminal offence for wedding car hire companies who do not hold a Liquor License to provide
Champagne (alcohol) even if supplied free of charge.
MAXIMUM PENALTY – £20,000 FINE and/or 6 MONTHS PRISON SENTENCE
We do not hold a Liquor License and therefore cannot provide alcohol.
Your custom is very important, but we won’t break the Law to gain your booking.
The champagne service is subject to UK licensing laws. Wedding car companies are not allowed by law to provide alcohol for the Bride & Groom unless they have a special license. Even if a wedding car company provides champagne on Free a special licence is still required as the law considers it is an ‘indirect sale’.
Our Vintage Rolls Royce wedding cars and Silver Cloud Rolls Royce wedding cars do not have seat belts.
We will only take Children 4 years of age accompanied with an adult.
Children 3 years of age or under cannot travel in a car that doesn’t have seat belts, or appropriate child restraints installed. Children up to 135cm tall (or 12 years old) must wear the correct child restraint. We will not travel with any child sitting on passengers laps for safety and legal reasons.
UK law states that children must use a child car seat until they’re 12 years old or 135cm/4ft 5in tall, whichever comes first.
We only do Weddings the law states wedding cars and funeral cars are exempt from being licensed as long as they only do weddings and funerals. If a wedding car hire company does not have licensed cars like a mini cab they are working illegally. It is not possible for Vintage and Classic cars to be licensed they are too old. If you hire one for a Prom or evening out and something happened you would not be covered by insurance.
Our Vintage Cars are over 80 years old, we won’t travel great distances with the Vintage Cars.

If you go to our contact us page, we can let you know if we cover your area.
When you find a wedding car company, ask them if they own the wedding car themselves. Always ask to view the car even if you don’t want to. If they won’t let you view the car don’t book with them as they probably don’t have that particular car or the car is in poor condition. Ask if that is the actual car that will arrive on your wedding day. This is a FAQ – Elegance Wedding Cars get asked when we don’t cover someones area.
