Weddings are a special occasion and if you are enjoying this celebration on Waiheke Island, then our beautiful, classic, 1928 Austin 12/4 Tourer is the perfect wedding car for you. Based on Waiheke Island, our vintage car is elegant and comfortable and will provide you with wonderful memories on your special day. Top up or down depends on your preference, and of course… the weather.
Prices start at $300 for a minimum 2 hour hire, which generally allows time for introductions to your driver, to be taken to your wedding venue, photo shoot opportunities and then on to the reception. Should you need longer, additional hours are pre-booked @ $100 per hour. Just remember that while Waiheke Island is small, our lovely car is sedate rather than racey. So approximately 20 to 30 minutes need to be allocated to move from Onetangi to Matiatia (for example) and steep driveways with narrow turn-around areas are not practical.
She seats up to 3 passengers plus driver. Please make sure you provide us with all the information; directions, schedules, pick up and drop off points and any special requirements, so your event proceeds without a hitch. We like to have a contact person and mobile phone number on the day. If you have any changes to make, just let us know. We can help plan your route and stops as we know the island well.
Remember to allow plenty of time for photographs. You may even want to stop en-route for those extra photos. A vintage car is gorgeous and your pictures can look amazing particularly with our beautiful island as the setting. Our Austin Tourer is cream with a black hood and side windows and the interior is deep buttoned cream leather. This means that no matter your wedding colour scheme, she will suit your colour palette. If you need help in sourcing a wedding photographer, let us know. We have access to some fabulous wedding photographers.
We will work with you to ensure we have timings correct in advance but we understand that delays can happen, so non-prebooked overtime is at a flat rate of $80 per 30 minutes. This must be paid to the driver in cash at the time of the extension. Please note that we do not accept payment after the event. We suggest you nominate a person such as the best man or brides father who can organise any overtime that may be required. Their contact mobile and name would be appreciated but please be assured we will not leave until we have checked with your nominated person.
The other alternative to Abigail we have our classic Daimler Six luxury limousine. Or if you want to mix them have both. Any questions you may have please let us know and we will work with you to make your special day a reality.
