Thank you Steve for making our special day even better, your car was immaculate, absolutely flawless and your kindness, patience and professionalism was wonderful. Thank you for everything especially letting us climb through the sunroof for a picture oh and letting me have a drive around the paddock.

Such a beautiful car, Steve was super helpful and easy to work with which is what you want/need when organising your wedding. Service on the day was spot on, arrived well before the time we needed to leave and made sure he was around long enough for photos etc afterwards. Thank you for being a part of our special day!

Wow! What an absolutely perfect addition to our wedding day! The car really is stunning and steeped in so much history and Steve was professional, friendly, patient and an all round lovely guy. We couldn't have dreamt of a better experience and Emily and I just want to say a huge thank you for being part of the day. I can't recommend highly enough!! Kindest regards and thanks again, Sam.

Thanks to Steve we had the most special day. The car was stunning and beautifully kept. Steve was very polite, reassuring and patient throughout the various journeys. Many of the wedding party commented how fabulous an addition it was to our wedding. We’d recommend this car to anyone!

The Classic, Vintage Mercedes-Benz

A Classic Kent and London Wedding Car

This car was a popular choice in its day by many celebrities. It boasted a smooth effortless ride due to the powerful self levelling air suspension and powerful 6.3 litre engine.

The wide sunroof also gives you the feeling of openness when fully retracted, the style and build quality being that of a bygone era. The longer rear doors mean that this beautifully designed car was built to be chauffeured in. The extra leg room makes it ideal as a most spacious unique classic Kent and London wedding car.

Relive the feeling Donovan had whilst sitting in the back when he was driven from his home on the Wentworth estate in Surrey to the Hard Rock cafe in London
