Planning how you will get to and from the church or ceremony venue on your wedding day can be a chance to add a touch of quirkiness to your big day. Most of us think of classic cars as the general mode of transport, but if you’re willing to have a little fun, then he sky is the limit. Over my years as an award-winning wedding planner, I’ve seen many variations on how couples get to and from their ceremony, everything from horses to buses and plenty in between!

These days you can choose almost anything your imagination can conjure up. Couples have been known to use tanks, tractors, hot air balloons, canal boats, or even elephants to arrive at their ceremony! Of course some of these ideas are totally impractical for various reasons, such as your budget and crucially your ceremony location. For example, we might all want to arrive by helicopter, but it’s a costly mode of transport most couples cannot afford. Similarly if you want to arrive by canal boat but your church is nowhere near water, then it’s probably not going to happen for you.

When it comes to quirky modes of transport, do dream big, but just make sure your dream is achievable to avoid disappointment. And don’t forget to use your common interests as inspiration, for example are you both keen golfers? Then why not arrive by golf cart? Do you have a passion for cycling or do you love vintage tractors, etc?

Here’s a roundup of some of the more unusual transport ideas. If you’d like to chat about your wedding needs in more detail then please get in touch.

Cars and Buses

Make the well-worn car option a bit more quirky and go for something like a VW Camper van or vintage bus! There are also many companies who hire out famous movie cars, such as the DeLorean from Back To The Future, or a Bond car. And don’t forget the golf carts too!

On Yer Bike

If you and your partner love cycling and it’s feasible, then arriving on a bike or leaving on a tandem is such a fun thing to do. But also think about vintage style Vespa’s, motorbikes with sidecars or even Segway’s to really make it unique.

Trucks and Tractors

Trucks or tractors may not be to everyone’s taste, but if you have a passion for it, then your wedding day is the ideal time to indulge!

Boats

The ideal of arriving or leaving your ceremony via boat is truly dreamy… George Clooney and Amal Clooney in Venice anyone? But this option will be limited by your access to water. If you are lucky enough to have water, then think about everything from canal boats, to row boats, yachts or even paddle boards for the adventure lovers!

On Foot

Don’t discount the fun of walking to or from your wedding ceremony venue. If you are lucky enough to be in walking distance, it really is worth thinking about. You’ll have tones of well-wishers on the street and you’ll feel like a celebrity! Also don’t rule out the feet of a four legged friends. If you and your partner are horsey people then why not share you passion and arrive or leave on horseback!
