    Amazing Service

    We booked Leicester Wedding Cars as a surprise for our son and our now daughter in law mainly it was the Jaguar XJ we wanted, although out of our area they agreed to our request, The arrangements were straight forward and the company made some lovely suggestions for the day, On the day we had the nicest gentleman attend and did everything he said he would and he was an added bonus who helped the day become even more special. Leicester Wedding Cars come highly recommended from The O'Hara family.

    LEICESTER WEDDING CARS's reply:

    To the Ohara family, thankyou. It was a pleasure to be asked to come to Norwich for the wedding of Becky & Luke. Glad our car and service met your expectations and our very best wishes to the happy couple for their future together. Best wishes Clive

    Absolutely brilliant

    I hired the Jaguar for my son and his girlfriend to take them to their prom. The car was immaculate. The driver arrived promptly at the time arranged and was brilliant in every respect and really looked after them. I would fully recommend.

    An absolute delight!

    Well what can I say?! I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Leicester Wedding Cars.
    Clive is an absolute delight. He is such a lovely person and very professional and I am so pleased that he was able to play a part in my big day.
    Nothing was too much and he went above and beyond my expectations. Especially when he came back to drop my lucky horse shoe round, as I had left it in his car by accident. After giving Clive a call the next day, to see if I had left anything behind in his car, he gave me a call back straight the way and offered to bring it back round there and then. I could not believe it! He is such a gentleman.
    I would absolutely recommend Leicester Wedding Cars to anyone looking for a chauffeur driven car, as the service and professionalism was second to none. He takes great pride in his business and it very much shows. Thank you very much!

    LEICESTER WEDDING CARS's reply:

    Emma & Nathan, wow, what a wonderful review, thank you. It was a pleasure to play a small part on your wedding day and glad you had a wonderful time. Thank you also for the lovely wedding cake, how did you know I had a sweet tooth. May I take this opportunity to wish you both all the very best for your future together and it was a pleasure meeting you both and your families. Many many thanks, Clive @ www.leicesterweddingcars.co.uk

    Excellent service helped make our day special!

    Clive provided an excellent friendly service. He was punctual, polite, and flexible when we wanted to make an unscheduled detour. The Jaguar is a lovely car and we would highly recommend the service to others.

    Superb quality service of a high standard

    The driver was prompt on the day and the car looked amazing and having ribbons to match the colour scheme as well. Clive was extremely prompt with responding to emails and ever so helpful when I hit a personal hiccup. He was extremely warm and polite, and really helped put myself at ease with a little humour as well. The car was just amazing I cannot recommend this company enough, great value for money and the champagne drive after was so much fun. He really did take such great care of us. Thankyou so much Clive

    Professional service + great car made a magical day

    What a special experience! Clive is such a lovely person to work with, nothing was too much trouble. He delivered a fantastic service even going the extra mile to get bollards lowered to access pedestrian streets for us! Clive was very punctual, professional and smart. The car was an absolute dream! Immaculate throughout and looked lovely with the ribbons, flowers and picnic basket. The chilled champagne in crystal glasses said everything about the attention to detail provided by Clive and I would highly recommend him!!

    Our perfect wedding car

    We are so pleased that we chose Leicester Wedding Cars for our wedding. We fell in love with the VW Beetle as soon as we saw it and it was decorated so beautifully on our wedding day. Our driver couldn't have been friendlier. He was punctual, very professional and took great care of us en route to our reception venue. The journey itself was beautiful and we were also able to have some photos with the car. We cannot thank him enough! We would highly recommend Leicester Wedding Cars.

    LEICESTER WEDDING CARS's reply:

    Hi Olly & Rachel,
    Thank you for a wonderful review and glad we were able to make your wedding day so memorable. Our very best wishes to you both for your future together. Kindest Regards Clive & Peter.

    I'm not a car person and when planning the wedding I really couldn't get excited about having a fancy car for the big day. I eventually landed on Leicester Wedding Cars' Beetle and thought the car looked really sweet. Clive was really helpful and clear about the arrangements, which gave me great confidence. On the wedding day, Rodger, our driver, had checked out the route and knew exactly where to go, which scenic route to take and just the right moment to put the top down to protect my fine coiffured hair! He was friendly and professional throughout the journey and put both myself and my Dad at ease. I didn't need to worry about anything. And the car was such a hit with our guests! I couldn't have chosen a better company or car for our day.

    Hi Sarah, many thanks for those kind words, very much appreciated. It was our pleasure to be asked to be a part of your special day. Congratulations to you both and our very best wishes for your future together. Regards Clive

    Utterly exceptional service

    I rarely write reviews, however in this case I’m making an exception as Clive and Roger from Leicester Wedding Cars were utterly exceptional in the service that they provided for our daughter’s wedding this Saturday. They set out to make your day from their perspective as special as possible. Responsive in planning the arrangements, flexible when there were a few last minutes changes to the timetable, arrived on time (early in fact), cars were immaculate and they displayed professionalism alongside gentle humour that made it special for my daughter and myself (the Father of the Bride) on the way to church and then for the happy couple as the drove on to the reception. Thank you so much.

    LEICESTER WEDDING CARS's reply:

    Hello David, many thanks for your review of our cars and services as it's very much appreciated. So glad to hear that everyone enjoyed the day and we did as well. We like it when a plan comes together.
    Our very best wishes to Lorna & Tom for their future together. Kindest Regards, Clive & Roger

    Too good to be true

    From start to end, a very professional and friendly service. Very patient and will go out of his way to accommodate our request as Asian weddings timings are always an estimate. The whole experience was one of the best and it is now our go to service for driving services. Clive is unique and service is beyond words. Thank you
