In Praise of Billy Idol

Earlier this week I was in Birmingham and bumped into Billy Idol. Far from the snarly young proto-punk of old he was, well, a smily older proto-punk of now. All of which got me thinking, almost inevitably, about white weddings.

We provide a lot of classic hire cars for a lot of weddings. And one of the constants over the last few years has been the trend away from white Rolls Royces. In fact, pretty much any colour of car goes. So, in many sense Billy was wrong. It may be a nice day for a white wedding, but it doesn’t have to be. White that is.

Except, let’s be really honest here, white cars and weddings do go together rather well.  Much of the move away from white wedding cars is more about what they are than the colour they are. Creaking old Rollers, Bentleys and, Heaven forbid, Beauforts, just don’t cut it with a lot of people. But being white is probably the least of these cars’ problems. 

So here at Great Escape Towers we still like white cars for weddings, but only the right white cars. And we’ve been busy during 2014 building up a wider range of classic white wedding cars to suit brides and grooms. The range now means that the groom and bride can both have what they want – and at least one of them gets to drive too (that’ll be the groom then).

Here is out fleet of classic white wedding cars – and not a Rolls Royce or flipping Beaufort amongst them. They’re all available to hire on a self drive basis individually or in combination. We can deliver and collect nationwide and we offer dedicated wedding packages with flexible start and finish times.  Prices start at just £95 for 24 hrs.
