A Brief History of Charismatic Cars – our Wedding Cars
We have been involved in the wedding car hire business since 1982. Charismatic Cars started life as just an extension to a car collecting hobby with just two 1920’s Alvis cars for hire. We peaked at twelve vehicles and currently have ten.
What makes us different?
- We have been doing this a really long time – over 35 years. We have dealt with almost every imaginable type of wedding – we are confident that we can accommodate nearly all requests.
- We own all our cars – there are a lot of wedding car hire business that simply borrow cars from collectors. Generally collectors love their cars – however, the borrower is relying to two keys things – (1) the cars is being correctly maintained to a high standard and (2) the collector won’t need to sell the car before your wedding date.
- We are a small family business – we really care about what we do. This isn’t something we do as a little side line it is our main and only business.
- Our cars are “real” – this may sound odd but there are a surprising number of “fake” classic cars out there – the “fakes” are usually something like a Ford Mondeo with a different body and interior. Basically it a Mondeo in fancy dress – we think it’s better to have a real Rolls-Royce rather than a Ford dressed up as a Rolls-Royce. Incidentally I am not suggesting that those who hired these cars out are trying to dupe anyone!
