Wedding Car Costs In Bristol
If you are the “Father Of The Bride To Be” or the person funding the wedding cars – congratulations! Although we would never describe ourselves as offering ‘cheap wedding car hire’, our wedding car service in Bristol is the same price as some wedding car companies in Bristol, and a lot lower than most wedding car hire companies. But offering a ‘full-time’, professional Chauffeur in a high ‘spec’ quality wedding car.
Both the ‘Bride and Groom’, Father of the Bride or the person booking a wedding car can relax once you have booked your wedding car with Cornelia Cars.
Professional Wedding Car Company
The last thing you will want on the on the wedding day is to have to worry about whether the wedding car will arrive or if it will get you to the wedding ceremony on time. We will arrive in plenty of time to get the Bride and the rest of the wedding party to the ceremony on time. Don’t worry if we are a little early, we will not get in the way. You will want the day to be perfect and so we will wait until YOU are ready to go. Normally we will have driven the route to the ceremony, the week before, the night before and or earlier on the Wedding day to ensure that any hiccups like roadworks, closed roads or diversion are planned for in our drivers schedule. It is these small details that you only get with a professional wedding car company such as Cornelia Cars Bristol.
If you have a different type of wedding transport in mind, such as a ‘horse drawn carriage’ or even a Volkswagen Camper Van’, then Cornelia Cars can offer wedding transport to the ceremony for the other members of the wedding party as a wedding limousine service.
Wedding Cars Bristol – Frequently Asked Questions
A. Yes, the car you book is the car you will have on the day.
A. Yes, all wedding cars are owned by us. If you need additional transport such as a minibus or coach we can organise this, but obviously we would not own those vehicles.
A. Yes, are wedding cars are ‘hybrid’ and run on electricity as well as traditional fuel. They are environmentally friendly. As they primarily run on electric, they are quiet and will ‘glide ‘ you to the venue in style.

A. As many as you need. We can plan 2 or 3 trips to the wedding venue. Consideration should be given to the distance to the wedding venue the ceremony is to be held, so that members of the wedding party are not dropped of hours before. It is normal for us to make two trips to a local venue.
A. Never yet. Are vehicles are nearly new, regularly maintained and checked daily.
A. As long as you need us. We can provide wedding cars to just take you to the ceremony. To the ceremony and then on to the wedding reception or ceremony, reception and then on to evening venue, hotel or home. In some cases we have taken the newly married couple from the reception to the airport or UK honeymoon destination.
A. This depends on your requirements and how long you would like us with you. Our wedding cars prices are very reasonable and compare favourably to wedding cars companies in Bristol. Call us for a no obligation quote.
A. No, the price we quote is the price you will pay. There are no hidden extras.
A. The last thing you should be worried about on the big day is carrying cash to tip people. We use professional drivers and pay accordingly. The driver will not be expecting a tip. A simple “thank you” as he opens the car door for you is fine (and if you are a ‘bag of nerves’ and forget he won’t be offended). Being part of your special day and seeing all the happy, smiling faces is reward enough!
A. Of course we would say “yes”. Even if your wedding ceremony and reception are at the same venue it is great to arrive in style.
