Vintage Vehicles

Vintage wedding cars are a popular choice and it’s easy to see why. They give a classic, timeless feel to the proceedings and ensure the bride’s journey to her wedding with her father is elegant and sophisticated.

Horgans Wedding Cars, based in Cheshire, has a fleet of beautiful vintage style cars, from their Beauford Tourers to their Regent Limousines – not forgetting their much sought after Charabanc Omnibus, which was specially created for the wedding industry. All their chauffeurs sport immaculate 1930s style uniforms too, which helps to add to the sense of occasion!
