03 August 2018
We are delighted That Quirky Wedding Cars are now one of our Handpicked Suppliers. We asked Ian to write a bit about himself and the company.
Quirky Wedding Cars is a wedding car hire company based in Folkestone, offering possibly the largest eclectic range of vehicles from vintage rare to modern luxury cars with interesting Quirky cars in between. Far from the middle of the road, Quirky couples can arrive at The Night Yard in anything from a retro VW campervan, Morris Minors to a Bentley, Land Rover or a classic American car. They also have a range of larger vehicles from a classic London Routemaster to more modern alternatives to assist with transport for your guests.
Ian realised there was a gap in the Kent wedding car hire market in 2010 and invested in his first quirky vehicle, a 1968 Land Rover Series IIa. Since then he has expanded the family business growing to a range of over twenty vehicles and helped hundreds of happy couples get to their wedding on time. His love of all things that move with an engine, coupled with vast experience in serving countless couples of their wedding days makes for an excellent combination to serve your wedding transport needs. In the past three years, their dedication to service has been recognised by the Kent Wedding Awards, having won the “Most Stylish Arrival” award and been a finalist the other two years.
For retro-themed weddings, they have iconic models including a Mark 1 Cortina, Triumph Herald, a range of VW campervans, a VW Beetle and Morris Minors including a lovely convertible Morris. Classic weddings are well catered for with a choice of either modern and classic Jaguars or a Bentley, while those looking for modern luxury and offered our Mercedes S class or Rolls Royce Phantom. Those looking for a vintage car are never disappointed with the choice of either a 1938 Lammas Graham Drop Head or 1928 Willis Knight 70s brass tourer. Brides and grooms hoping for a quirkily memorable entrance can opt for a Citroen 2CV. Those looking for classic American flair have plenty of choice with either our 1958 Oldsmobile or 1962 Galaxie sunliner convertible – truly a car for every couple.
What better way for your guests to start your wedding celebration than to be transported to The Night Yard on board a classic Routemaster bus, it is the perfect icebreaker for guests to get to know each other and often becomes a real talking point. Quirky Wedding Cars can meet your guests from a chosen meeting point, and deliver them in style to The Night Yard. So many couples have already chosen this option for their guests as it eliminates any risk of people arriving late or getting lost etc on their way to the venue. It is a stylish and fun way to start the day and get people into the spirit of the celebrations.
A large bus can also be arranged to arrive at the end of the night to swiftly collect your guests and take them back to their hotel, meaning there is no delay in waiting for taxis to arrive or standing around at the end of the day – the party spirit can continue!
