​Four weddings and an F-Type (Jaguar)

Bloghead Wedding

Wedding season is upon us and making a beautiful arrival for the bride (or groom) and a spirited departure for the happy couple has always called for a special vehicle. Whether you want to channel Downton Abbey in a breath taking Bentley Tourer, or imitate Delboy in a 3-wheeler Reliant Regal van, most would agree that choosing your wedding car is as important as the venue, cake and politically charged seating plan!

Bride & Vroom
Brits typically now spend £27,000 on their wedding, and choosing the right car is an important personality statement about the bride and groom. At ERS we’ve always made it our business to embrace specialist vehicles, so we see many unusual vehicles coming through on a day to day basis, but none quite like those we insure for our specialised wedding product. 

Wedding belles
Classic or modern, there are plenty of cars to choose from to give a couples wedding day a distinctive twist. The very essence of style and prestige, the Rolls Royce Phantom is a popular choice for wedding cars and it's easy to see why. Classic cars provide fantastic photo fodder, whether a Citroën Traction Avant, Bramwith Convertible Limousine or the perennial Rolls, and with their towering, box-like bodywork, these classic, 1920s-era motors allow onlookers to admire the blushing bride in all her finery.  

A car fit for a king
Ever since Wills and Kate trundled down The Mall in Charles’s precious Aston Martin DB6 Volante, this has been the going-away car to aspire to. However, with just 215 examples worldwide, closely emulating the Windsors may prove rather costly. Even Harry’s more modern wedding choice of the Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero would require a princely sum. 

For richer, for poorer
Choosing the right wedding car is such a personal decision and you can rest assured that ERS is well versed in underwriting every option, from seven-figure supercars to quirky motors with possibly greater sentimental than resale value. If a the happy couple wants to raise a smile as well as a toast, tie the tin cans to the back of a Morris Minor Convertible, or of course, nothing charms more than a Volkswagen Type 2 T1. Whichever vehicle they choose, our specialised wedding insurance product will allow their big day to run smoothly.

Darren Shulver [Senior Underwriter] at ERS commented “Wedding season always unveils some fantastic vehicles which need very bespoke underwriting. My favourites include a series of custom-built Batmobiles from the 60s films through to the very latest model; a ‘Smokey & the Bandit’ Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, as well as a customised fire engine! Whether a classic mini or an all-American V8 muscle car, my team of specialist underwriters understand the risks associated with wedding vehicles and can provide specialist cover so it’s one less thing to worry about on the big day.”
