Royal Wedding Cars: Eugenie’s Vehicles Delivered to Windsor Castle

Now, there have been many mixed opinions about the upcoming royal wedding, with Princess Eugenie’s big day costing the taxpayer a great deal of money. While the royal family will incur the cost of most of the celebration’s costs, the taxpayer will foot a £2m bill for security on the day. But, with the royal family bringing a lot to the economy, many just want the wedding to run smoothly and in true royal wedding style.

Here at Limo Broker, we were understandably excited to hear about the cars, with royal wedding cars renowned for their lavish, extravagant nature.

This is why we were thrilled to hear of the wedding car delivery that took place this week. According to sources, the wedding venue, Windsor Castle, received a rather expensive delivery of stunning vehicles. These included a Rolls Royce off-roader as well as a stunning Bentley. Branded as ‘ultra-expensive’, these cars are said to be worth £300,000 and £130,00 retrospectively.

With more than 800 guests expected to occupy the 15th century Gothic chapel on the day, this is very much a no-expense-spared event.

The Rolls Royce Cullinan

While many would not expect to see an off-roader used at a royal wedding, the Rolls Royce Cullinan is cut from a different cloth. Not available to the public until 2019, the wedding will be the first time we have seen the car being used in this way. Thought to be the SUV for the super rich, the Cullinan is the pinnacle of luxury transport. And, is there really a more fitting car brand to travel to a British royal wedding than a Rolls Royce?

Like Harry and Meghan’s wedding, Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank will be televised. But, will the Rolls Royce Cullinan gather as much interest as the all-electric Jaguar did when Harry tied the knot? We would love to hear your thoughts.

Marilyn Monroe’s wedding car is up for sale

As you know, here at Limo Broker, we love nothing more than an extravagant wedding car; cars that have a real story to tell. This is why in recent years, we have made further additions to our vintage fleet, wanting to share the wonderful cars of history with our customers.

Displaying such a passion for the vehicle of yesteryear, we were understandably intrigued to hear that Marilyn Monroe’s wedding car was up for sale. As a woman renowned for being a hopeless romantic, the blonde bombshell had various high-profile partners. However, the car up for sale, the 1955 Ford Thunderbird, was used on her third wedding to Arthur Miller. Bought for her by Milton Greene, Monroe’s business partner and photographer, the convertible provided the backdrop for many iconic Monroe pictures.

Up for sale for a respectable $500,000, the car is a rare beauty. However, its beauty has been largely concealed for the last 50 years or so, with its anonymous owner keeping the car in a garage.

Bosting ‘Raven Black’ exterior and gleaming white interior, the car works with a classic black and white colour theme. Equally as impressive under the bonnet, the Ford also transmits a 225 horsepower V-8 engine, having a top speed of 113mph.

More than just a wedding car

But, this car was not just the actress’ wedding car, but the only car to be registered in her name.

Speaking about the car in the past, Amy Greene, Milton Greene’s wife, said:

“Marilyn liked to drive. We’d take the convertible and with the top down, we’d go sailing along the highway.

“We both liked to feel the wind in our faces and the warmth of the heater on our legs.”

Let us know what you think, does the Thunderbird warrant the $500,000 price tag? leave your comments below.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choose Electric Jaguar as their wedding car

Unless you have been under a rock for the last 6 months, you will know that a rather lavish wedding took place on the weekend. Seeing Prince Harry tie the knot with American actress, Meghan Markle, the celebration did not disappoint when it came to extravagance. From guests such as Oprah Winfrey and the Beckhams to the £30m budget, the world stopped and stared as the young couple joined in matrimony.

While many were fixated on Meghan’s dress, shoes and tiara, we at Limo Broker waited patiently to see what the royals had in store for us when it came to transportation. Again, the couple did not fail us, exiting the star-studded event in an Jaguar E Type Concept Zero. Defying royal wedding car convention, many expected Harry to keep up with tradition and enjoy a ride in a petrol-guzzling Rolls Royce; but, did they make the right decision?

Well, many have commended the newlyweds for their car choice. With the car being electric, the couple communicate the message that they are environmentally—friendly, flying the flag for electric cars during one of the most-watched programmes of all time. However, unlike many eco-cars, this vehicle does not compromise when it comes to style.

A remake of ‘the most beautiful car in the world’

As a car that Enzo Ferrari describes as ‘the most beautiful car in the world’, this particular E-Type is a remake of the 1968 classic, staying true to its iconic look during the modernisation process.

Tim Hannig, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic, said the following at the launch of the eco version in 2017.

“E-type Zero combines the renowned E-type dynamic experience with enhanced performance through electrification. This unique combination creates a breathtaking driving sensation.

“Our aim with E-type Zero is to future-proof classic car ownership. We’re looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market.”

With the ability to get from 0-62 mph in and admirable 5.5 seconds, the car not only looks like the original but it performs like it also.

So, what do you think; does the royal wedding car deserve its price tag of £350,000? Leave your thoughts with us.

Wedding car convoy closes motorway to perform donuts!

While we at Limo Broker are all for a lavish presentation of wedding cars safety must always be considered. However, not everyone is like us, with one Turkish couple encouraging the closure of a motorway for their wedding car convoy to perform donuts.

The stunt was carried out on the Trans-European Motorway (TEM), blocking one of the busiest roads of the city. Encouraging people to stop, stare and lose focus on the road the police had no choice but to put an end to the impressive performance, displaying a duty of care to other road-users.

Professional sports car photographer and groom, Ozcan Ozer, was arguably behind this ordeal, with his groomsmen wanting to give the luxury car-lover a wedding car to remember.

One of the young men reportedly told police: ‘We admit we were wrong. Blame it on our youthfulness.’

Mr Asucuoglu reportedly admitted: ‘We blocked the TEM motorway for the wedding. We admit it was a very wrong thing to do.’

Bursting with bright colours the collection of cars were undeniably sublime, seeing other members of the wedding party get out of their cars to cheer the driver on, making for a whole set of amazing wedding photos.

If you are a thrill-seeker like these Istanbul residents then have you considered hiring a supercar for your big day? At Limo Broker we have quickly recognised this growing trend, adding Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bugatti and Porsche models to our ever-growing wedding car collection.
