If you want your wedding arrival to rival more traditional modes, steal one of SoBristolWeddings’ alternative wedding transport ideas.
Whether you hitch a ride on a golf buggy or hire Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, these quirky ideas are guaranteed to turn heads and make for fabulous wedding snaps.
Don your helmets and hop on a Harley Davidson for a full throttle departure from daytime celebrations – or for vintage celebrations what could possibly be cooler than a couple’s spin on a Vespa.
A bicycle made for two is not only an eco- and budget-friendly option, but also a whimsical way for the groom to whisk his new bride off into the sunset.
If you like the idea of a bike, but perish the thought of pedalling in a dress, rent a tuk-tuk – and hold hands with your new partner while someone else does the hard work.
If you’re tying the knot near the Severn or Thames, make a charmingly departure in a narrowboat, as your guests wave goodbye from the river banks.
For that romantic feel lifted straight from the pages of an Austen novel, hire a purse-friendly paddleboat and row, row, row your boat gently down the stream – providing your next stop is pretty nearby!
For film fans – or couples who appreciate comedy value – there are an incredible range of replica cars available to hire. Some of SoBristolWeddings’ favourites include Delboy’s van, Knight Rider’s Kit, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Austin Powers’ Shaguar! Yeah baby…
A hot air balloon can make for the most magical of departures – as the newlyweds take to the skies while sipping Champagne. What better way to start married life at dizzying heights.
Keen riders can saddle up and canter off into the sunset together. Whether you’re opting for a Horse and Hound affair, a hippy chic shindig or even a wild west hoedown, get creative and style your stallion for photo ops galore.
For welly-wearers and Wurzels fans, you can’t beat a brand new combine harvester – just give your loved one the key! Growing increasingly popular as the trendy wedding transport of choice, dress tractors up with comfy hay bales and bunting.
With Bristol’s range of premium golf courses proving popular wedding venues, golf carts are unsurprisingly the ‘hole in one’ choice of transport for a growing number of brides and grooms. Stick a couple of ‘just married signs’ on the back and have a whole lot of fun riding around fairways.
What better way to celebrate your future together than to drive off on the transport of the future? Segways of course! Quirky, fun and best of all, it won’t crease up your wedding dress.
