1954 Riley RME
Our Beautiful Black & Cream two-tone 1954 Riley RME is a classic 1954 Sports Saloon with Cinnamon Leather Seats, Arte Deco style Instruments, Bone Steering wheel - a real car !!! It is also possible to book this car for filming or other work with our driver only ( no self drive option sorry)
This car is a head turner and is perfectly suited to both your venue and the local roads. The car has a perfect record for starting and some "modern" features such as hydraulic brakes, electric fuel pump and a good battery to ensure that she can be used in modern traffic conditions without a hitch ( she was built before Motorways even existed so dont expect fast cruising or seat belts !!!)
The car has a heater and can be brought out on fine winters days if needed.
Pricing -all bookings are payable in advance
Our Car will arrive 15 minutes before your departure time and will take you to your venue in style. The car is supplied with a ribbon & bow (Your choice of colours)
We can meet you at any pick up point & take you to / from any destination within our normal 10 mile operating radius. The wedding venues and accommodation mentioned on this site normally fall within this.
Every wedding requirement is different and so our quote will be based on your individual planned itinerary. This should include estimated waiting times & mileage. To work out your quote both the total mileage & time for your itinerary is calculated using Google maps ( Base to Base). Excess mileage over our normal 35 miles allowance is charged at £3 per mile. Any variation from that on the day will be chargeable as an extra
We can also offer a second modern car to take Bridesmaids before taking the bride / Brides father - please ask us to quote.
Subject to local availability we are often also able to supply cars or minibuses for guests after the reception or for the Bride & Groom or close family using suitably licensed cars & minibuses. Please note that our classic cars are not available or licensed for this type of work unless booked as part of the wedding package.
- Pick up & Drop Off only (Minimum Hire) guide price from around £350
This is for a simple straightforward journey from a collection address (Arriving 15 minutes before the departure time) to a local ceremony venue (typically one of our local barn venues) & only suitable where there is no onward journey needed after the ceremony. A short time is allowed on arrival for photographs ( 5-10 minutes)
- Pick up & Drop Off with one hours extra time guide price from £400
This will allow extra time. For example for photos with the car & driver at a civil ceremony location. The chauffeur will wait until immediately after the ceremony so that the Bride and Groom can have photographs together with the car before it departs back to our base. This option does not usually include a further onward journey to a venue.
- Registry office or Civil Ceremony ( 3 hours allowed) guide price from £450
This is a good option for a registry office wedding or civil ceremony where there may be an onward journey to another destination for the reception after the ceremony.
- Church Wedding ( 4 hours allowed) guide price from £500
In our experience about 4 hours is more than enough for the majority of Church weddings.Your photographer will have plenty of time without feeling rushed before leaving for the reception venue. You may want to stop off on the way to your reception for more photographs at a local beauty spot or even have a few minutes quiet reflection with your new partner !
If the car is required for longer than 4 hours this would not be a problem and as long as we are advised of this at the booking stage the costs will be included in your quote.
