Four ways to arrive at your wedding in style


Before even thinking about the ceremony and the celebrations, there’s always the matter to consider of how you’re going to arrive at your wedding. Arriving in a special way will make your entrance especially memorable and will set a great impression of how wonderful the rest of the day will be for you and your guests! Here are four ways perfect for a traditional countryside wedding, such as those hosted by us here at Athelhampton House, one of the leading wedding venues in Dorset:

Retro and vintage cars

A classic and traditional method of wedding transport, there is nothing like travelling in luxury in a beautiful vintage car. These are perfect for vintage-themed weddings especially, and vintage cars often come in a number of colours, allowing you to co-ordinate your transport with the rest of your wedding details:

Volkswagen campervans

These retro methods of transport are becoming more and more popular as a way of travelling to a wedding, and it is easy to see why! They are both colourful and practical – perfect for those with a larger wedding dress or a number of people to transport to the wedding!vintage retro cars Rolls Royce transport travel Volkswagen campervan classic bus countryside tractor trailer haystack country ceremony celebrations party recption Athelhampton House and Gardens 15th century Tudor manor house and topiary gardens for private hire venue Dorset Dorchester Weymouth Bournemouth Poole

Vintage buses

Much like the campervan, they are ideal for large numbers of guests and are a glamourous alternative to public transport. They are fitting but alternative way to arrive at a traditional country wedding – stylish yet different.
