1957 Renault Dauphine

Garden of England Classics Wedding Car Hire Kent 1957 Renault DauphineGarden of England Classics has a charming 1957 Renault Dauphine wedding car available for hire.

The rear engine Dauphine was a huge success for Renault, selling over 2 million units from 1956-67. It was built in numerous locations around the world and was a cheap and economical family car that provided transport to the masses.

Now a very rare sight on UK roads, our Dauphine is lovingly restored and turns heads everywhere it goes. It is actually a first year production Dauphine which means it retains the wonderful original seats and door cards that were designed by Parisienne fashion designers for Renault. It is a superb slice of retro French car design and is ideal for couples looking for something a bit different. And like the Mercedes Ponton, the Dauphine is a regular sight at the Goodwood Revival.

Powered by a 845cc engine, the Renault Dauphine simple exudes charm and has a character that can only be found in French cars of the 1950s.

The Chauffeur Driver will arrive dressed in a retro style suit that would have been appropriate to the period of the Dauphine. It’s character and rarity will guarantee to add something very special to your wedding day.

Package Bolt Ons and Extras

Below are the options and extras you can add to your hire. These allow you to tailor the hire to suit your special day. If you need to discuss any of these options please do get in touch.

The Get Away Package - £45

With more and more couples choosing to hold their ceremony and reception at the same venue, it is often hard for them to get a break from all the attention. So why not add our Get Away Package to your booking. Our driver will take the bride and groom on a 30 minute drive after the ceremony, while their guests head off and prepare for the reception.

Additional Hours Hire - £55

If your ceremony will take longer than usual and you would like the driver to wait longer for photos, we can add this to your package. This adds an extra time cushion to the hire and lets the Bride and Groom enjoy the after ceremony and not have to keep an eye on the clock.

Bubbly Beverage - £12

Why not add a refreshing beverage to the occasion by adding a bottle of non alcoholic sparkling wine to the package. We would love to offer champagne but unfortunately it is actually illegal to serve alcohol without a license. So our alternative is to serve something non-alcoholic which will still look the part in the photos.

Extra Mileage Allowance

Sometimes the travel on the day will exceed our standard 20/30 mile allowance. If the total journey length is more than the allowance, we charge an additional £2.50 per mile to cover fuel costs. This also adds extra flexibility if there is a large group of bridesmaids that require multiple trips.
