Classic White Jaguar MK2 'Duey'
Meet Duey perhaps the only White Classic MK2 Jaguar in Bedford and Middlesex being used as a wedding car. Duey is the newest addition to our fleet but the oldest car being built in 1961. He is in the traditional wedding livery of old English white and has plush red hide interior, walnut veneer dash and smart silver wire wheels. Although Duey is our newest acquisition he is already proving very popular with Brides and Grooms to be.
Classic Blue Daimler V8 'Charlotte'
Our Blue Daimler V8 is extremely popular for ‘spring time’ weddings and will complement your colour scheme with style. Similar in looks and style to the Classic Jaguar MK2. This 1965 Daimler 2.5 Litre V8 is finished in a beautiful Silver Blue Metallic with gleaming chrome work, a plush blue Hide interior with polished walnut veneer trim. Said to be more refined than the Jaguar it has been kept almost entirely in its original condition being kept by its previous owner for 22 years. This car would certainly add a touch of class to any wedding.
London Routemaster Bus
To expand on the London theme we can offer an original 64 or 72 seater red Routemaster bus. These have been lovingly restored to their former glory, some with original advertising hoardings.
Black London Taxi Cab 'Huey'
We can also offer a traditional style black Fairway London Cab which can transport up to five passengers, ideal for bridesmaids or the groom and groomsmen.
