Unique style and luxury for your wedding day
Vintage Rolls Royce Wedding Car Hire was established in 2016 and is owned by Nigel Atherstone, a vintage Rolls Royce car enthusiast.
Nigel derives great pleasure in driving bridal couples to their wedding in his stately vehicle as he loves to see the smiles of delight on the happy couple’s faces when they experience the splendour and magnificence of his beautiful car.
The usual wedding car experience involves collecting the bride, and her father from her home, or other venue of her choice, and driving her to the church or venue for the wedding service with plenty of photo opportunities. After the ceremony, the bride and bridegroom will be driven to their wedding reception where more photos can be taken. However, the car can also be used for bridesmaids, mother of the bride or other guests for that perfect and very special wedding day.
Story of the car
Every vintage car has a story, and this car is no different. It is a 1933 Rolls-Royce 20/25 fitted with Thrupp and Maberly Sports Saloon coachwork. Originally supplied new to Sir Alec Lodge of Lodge Spark Plug fame, it changed hands several times in the UK before it was acquired by a gentleman in the early 1960's, who took the car with him to South Africa.
The car then sold again in 1980 a prominent South African tobacco farmer before being sold to a vintage car collector and friend of Nigel’s. In 2010, Nigel bought the car, which by this time was quite scruffy and in poor condition, so he funded an engine overhaul and body refurbishment before importing it back to its country of birth – the UK – in 2015. Since 2016 it has been used exclusively as a wedding car with Nigel acting as its chauffeur in his dark suit, silk tie, gloves and chauffeur’s cap and white ribbons adorning this vintage beauty.
