Here at SMP Weddings we love a touch of the quirky and unusual and we are always thrilled when our happy couples chose to surprise us with something just a little bit different and out of the ordinary. Lots of our brides chose to arrive in style to their ceremonies and our cool couples often head to their receptions with equal flair, if the guests are lucky they get in on the act too! There’s no match for that breath-taking first glimpse of the bride but a particularly spectacular arrival only enhances that moment, below are some of our favourite modes of wedding transport….
Emily and Ollie went the whole hog for their wedding. Emily and her father arrived at the church in a horse-drawn carriage while her bridesmaids and flowergirls travelled behind in an amazing gypsy caravan pulled by a tractor adorned with sunflowers. Guests were transported back to their rural reception venue on a trailer decked with bunting, so beautifully English, and then the newlyweds used the gypsy caravan for their couple shots to stunning effect.
Every detail of Jen and Dave’s wedding was thoughtfully designed to reflect this relaxed couple who chose to arrive at their reception by tractor sipping on espresso martinis.
Guests at Sally and Harry’s country summer wedding were treated to a trip in a green vintage Bristol Lodekka bus to the family home of the bride for a beautiful marquee reception.
Sophia and Dan married at the Queen’s own private chapel on the Windsor estate and what else would you chose to arrive at such an illustrious venue in but a cream vintage Morris Minor, perfect understated cool.
Effortlessly glamourous Kate and her father cruised to her wedding at Woburn Sculpture Gallery in a maroon Triumph Stag, this girl knows how to make an entrance!
As we are based in Sussex (Cuckfield, Haywards Heath), we are ever hopeful of a nautical couple who'll travel by boat, so come on seadogs, drop us a line!
