Weddings cars are, quite often, about two things: the colour white and Jaguars. While many wedding couples are opting for all kinds of colour schemes it's our white E Types that remain most popular with the recently betrothed.
This has always caused something of a dilemma for us, since our saloon Jaguars, which would otherwise complement the E Types, are resolutely Not White. In part this has been deliberate - white Mk2 Jaguars are so synonymous with weddings that I've avoided adding them to the fleet because they wouldn't be popular with non-wedding hirers.
And then the Jaguar XJ6 that appears below arrived on my radar. Back in 1980, when this car was built, Jaguar could only make the XJ6 in white, red or yellow because the paint process was so poor. Consequently, a white XJ6 is not that uncommon. It also suits the car, in a way that white doesn't suit the curvy Mk2. So we added it to the fleet.
The addition of the XJ6 means that we can now offer brides a complete self drive wedding car package of white Jaguars - one for the groom and one for the bride. The total cost to hire both cars for a weekend for a wedding is just £699. That includes insurance for two drivers per car and free delivery within 25 miles of our base. Cheaper than two similar chauffeur driven cars and you get to drive them over a full weekend. Gosh.
We have a choice of two white E Type V12 convertibles, both Old English White with black interiors and manual gearboxes. Both cars have been extensively restored and renovated by Great Escape Cars over the last three years. The XJ6 is a very rare five speed manual with Old English White paintwork and black leather interior. It has acres of room in the back for the bride and father of the bride and is very easy to drive. Both cars have power steering.
Hiring a self drive wedding car from Great Escape Cars is very easy. We provide flexible collection and return times to fit around your plans and we offer a tailored hire package that takes into account the fact that the cars won't be travelling far. We also include insurance for two drivers per car, a generous mileage allowance and we can deliver and collect the car anywhere in the UK.
