Our Cars

1985 Mercedes 300D (W123) – “Khaleesi”

The W123 is a success story beyond imagination. Forged under the strict instruction to engineer a car like no other, and with Rolls Royce and Jaguar being the direct competition, Mercedes-Benz engineered the W123 into exemplary comfort, style, reliability, and safety. With wide chrome-rimmed doors, and up to seven seats, this is perfect for the Bride and her entourage.

1989 Mercedes 300SL (R107) – “Dragon”

Mercedes-Benz brought their engineering excellence and sporting success together to build the glamorous 300SL. The final 1989 model is recognised for its engineering perfection, which produces a luxurious ride with extreme style and finesse. Hard and Soft tops. Recommended for the Groom and Best Man.

1983 Mercedes 250 (W123) – “The Don”

Our second W123 limousine, with privacy windows and bulletproof chassis. When you absolutely, positively have to be somewhere in style, accept no substitutes. This exquisite car may be the best example of executive luxury travel that Mercedes-Benz ever crafted. Elegance and style for your VIPs.

FAQ

Why should I choose Bournemouth Chauffeurs?

We are a small company who operate a personal, one-to-one service. Our first request will be to come and collect you in one of our cars, to experience the ride, and to discuss your plans in person. Please see our other FAQs to help you choose us as your wedding car service provider.

How will you prepare for the wedding day schedule?

We work directly with you to ensure that the pickup locations, routes and stops are clearly defined and tested before the big day. We follow the Armed Forces “Five P’s” protocol: Perfect Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.

Can I see the wedding vehicles available?

Absolutely! We invite all our customers to visit our secure compound to view all three of our cars. Test-drives are highly recommended.

Can the groom drive the car after the ceremony or is the driver always required?

We can accommodate a “showcase” drive-off by the groom on private property i.e. church and wedding venue grounds. As we only supply vintage vehicles, they need to be operated by one of our experienced and licensed drivers on the road.

Are all the vehicles insured and properly licensed?

All of our cars and are licensed and insured for weddings, and maintained to run at their beautiful best, all year round.

Is the car I want available on my wedding date?

Please just call us for a one-to-one confirmation. We hold provisional bookings for 7 days, by which time we require a 50% deposit to secure the booking. This deposit is refundable if the date is then filled by another customer, which is highly likely.

How many people can fit into the car?

Our two Mercedes-Benz limousines carry 1-7 passengers, while our Mercedes-Benz sportster carries 1-2 passengers. All together, we can transport 16 VIPs in unison, and multiple numbers via multiple trips.

What would happen if the chauffeur were late or the wedding car broke down?

We will factor in contingency timescales to ensure that we are not late. Our cars were built to never fail, but in the extremely unlikely event that a car did break down, we will have local luxury transport companies on stand-by on your special day.

What are the rental charges?

We charge £2 per car, per minute, which includes the cost of the chauffeurs. For weddings, we do have a minimum rental term of four hours per day. This could be exclusively for one car, or divided between two or three cars. Your final charge will be the minimum four-hour charge, plus additional minutes used – NOT additional hours.

What are the mileage costs?

We offer the first 20 miles free as part of the service; each mile thereafter is £2 per car, per mile. We do this to preserve the cars in their vintage condition.

Will the car remain at the venue until after the ceremony? Would I be able to use it to get to my reception?

When you hire us, we work for you. We only take ONE booking PER DAY, meaning that if you decide to extend your booking, we are there for you.

What decorations are provided for the car?

We provide ivory tulips, roses and ribbons with all of our cars. Personalised plates are available. We can also do custom decorations, of the wedding organiser’s choice.

Do you cater for honeymoon transfers and receptions?

We cater for everything except for late-night reception transport. We will happily recommend local transport services to cater for these.

Are chauffeur’s gratuities included in the bill?

A gratuity is optional, and not included in our bill.

When is full payment due?

After the initial 50% booking deposit, full payment is due 10 weeks before your big day. Flexible plans can be arranged, including those for late bookings.

Are there any hidden costs?

Absolutely not. You will only pay for the duration of the service, plus any mileage over the free 20 mile quota.
