Ultimate Classic Car Hire, based in Send, Surrey, now offers a remarkable selection of more than 35 classic, vintage and luxury cars. The owner, Tony Allen, put his teenage passion for collecting classic motor vehicles to good use by lending his cars to friends for their weddings. He tells us: "Way back in 1990, as the collection grew, I established my classic car hire business, and since then, my collection has grown exponentially into one of the most impressive in the South East of England. We maintain many fine examples of iconic Rolls Royces, including the Silver Wraith, Phantom II & VI, Silver Dawn and Silver Cloud, along with Bentleys, Jaguars, Daimlers and a selection of classic American cars, including Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and Mercury.

Surrey and Sussex Trikes is a new transport company
Surrey and Sussex Trikes was set up in August 2021 by Martin Ordish and his partner Debbie. Martin tells us: "We both have a background in the NHS at our local hospital. I decided to leave the NHS to pursue the dream of running a trike company as I knew just how awesome these machines were. It gives you the comfort of a car with the freedom of a motorbike. What's not to like?
"We purchased Ike the Trike from a UK dealer (the trike is custom-made by a German company called Rewaco) and is based on a car engine and gearbox. It's very comfortable with seatbelts and individually-heated seats.
"We undertake weddings, civil ceremonies and funerals if asked. We're currently expanding to do tours of Surrey, Sussex and the home counties, although we can operate anywhere in the UK. There are very few other companies providing a tour service, and I believe we're the only one specialising in weddings."

How to find the perfect transport company
The budget for your wedding car is an important factor when deciding which type of vehicle and company to go for. Prices differ depending on whether you're looking at classic, vintage, luxury or prestigious options. Some companies may impose a flat day rate, and others may charge based on the time and journeys required. Always check what's included, such as drinks, multiple pick-ups and photo stops. Some suppliers may include this as standard, and others may add these on as premium options. Wedding dresses came in all shapes and sizes, so keep in mind that long trains and full skirts can take up lots of room in the back of the car. For dresses with excess material, you will need to consider a more spacious option with plenty of room in the back to accommodate your dress.

K1 Classic Car Hire is exhibiting at two wedding shows this autumn
K1 Classic Car Hire, a family run business based in Lightwater, Surrey, is the proud owner of two beautiful classic cars; both very different in style but equally magnificent in character. The 1948 American Oldsmobile is comfortable and spacious, seating up to five passengers. Be different from the crowds with this stunning car. The Oldsmobile has the class and charm of a classic Rolls Royce or Bentley, but with the added charisma of cool, classic American style. Alternatively, the 1970 VW Beetle Karmann seats up to three passengers. Rain or shine, this little convertible Beetle looks equally good roof up or down, with so many options to add to its character and charm with flowers, bunting and ribbons. This vintage black and cream beauty is chic and simply just fun.

How to find the perfect wedding transport
Your wedding day should be one of the most memorable days of your life, and your transport should make you feel like a celebrity. We're finding that an increased number of couples are opting for classic Rolls Royces, which have that added wow factor and presence. When choosing a vehicle, it's always advisable where possible to physically view your preferred car as website images aren't always a true reflection of its condition. Try to book six to nine months in advance to avoid disappointment. A few questions you can ask your supplier are: What is provided within the service?
