Celebrity Wedding Cars
Celebrity Wedding Cars, who is arriving in what?
Weddings, and especially celebrity ones, are big business, with brides often going all out to organise the wedding day they have been dreaming of with little expense spared. Whilst the press is often anxious to get the first photographs of the bride, and particularly her dress, celebrity guests and any other details; the car they arrive in, which plays such a big part in the wedding day is often overlooked in these photos. So, what cars do celebrities pick to get them to the church on time?
Pippa Middleton and James Matthews went classic with their wedding car
When the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister married her Fiancé, in May this year her choice of wedding car was a stunning and very classic vintage 1951 Jaguar MK V. With the top down this beautiful black and grey car was the perfect choice for the warm spring day. But there was another car that played an important part in the happy couple’s big day; the groom drove his new bride to their wedding reception in a classic green open top Jaguar E-type, the oldest surviving model.
Vintage car for Geri Halliwell
When Geri Halliwell, Ginger Spice, married her fiancé, F1 Infiniti Red Bull Racing team boss Christian Horner, she chose a vintage Rolls Royce to take her to Woburn Abbey for the ceremony, with a twist, it was driven by a racing driver. Her groom arrived at the church in a £350,000 DB5 Retro-style Aston Martin car which he had bought as a wedding gift for his bride.
The Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe was the car of choice for Kim Kardashian for her short-lived wedding to Chris Humphries, not known for doing anything in short measures she didn’t just hire one car but a whole fleet of them to transport her and her wedding party to the venue. Oh, and they all had to be white to fit in with the colour scheme of the wedding, with such a convoy she certainly made the headlines the next day.
When Kim married Kanye, she kept things a little more-low key, well in Kardashian terms anyway, and arrived at the wedding venue in a Mercedes-Benz, as part of a convoy with the rest of her family.
Declan Donnelly (Dec) arrived with Ant in his wedding car
In 2015 Declan Donnelly (of Ant and Dec fame) married his manager Ali Astall, it was the groom and his best man who stole the show, arriving at the wedding venue in an Aston Martin Vanquish. The bride had arrived just a little while before them in an elegant black Rolls Royce Phantom.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter
When the Hollywood actor married his Fiancée last year in a secret ceremony on the Isle of Wight, the happy couple chose a stunning Mark VII Jaguar as their wedding car. However, as the car was pictured pulling up to the venue without the bride or groom there is some speculation as to whether they in fact used it or it was just a rather stunning ruse to keep people attention focused in a different direction!
We’re sure the car is not the be all and end all when it comes to planning your big day, but as celeb weddings only set to get bigger and better than the last, we’re interested to see what celebrity wedding cars will turn up in next!
