d’Luxe Classic Wedding Cars is an experience service that offers you the opportunity to arrive in style on your special day in America’s favourite cars from the fifties.

Does taffeta come in green? 

We are in the business of creating experiences, and what better than a wedding! 

Our matching green mid-50s Chevrolets are definitely a popular nuptial vehicle choice as well as being all around show-stoppers. Obviously we are not trying to upstage any bride or groom – ahem! – but there is always a point of attention with these chrome-encrusted cruisers.

These are known to the motoring world as ‘America’s favourite cars’ and it is not hard to see why: there is a scale, grandeur, style, optimism and nostalgia all wrapped up in these magnificent vehicles – the ride is super comfortable (with the pleasant chug of V8 motors) and they contribute noticeably to a sense of occasion! 

For a wedding day we can schedule separate pick-ups, arrival to a service, outings for photography at any desired locations in and around Melbourne, then deliver to the reception – even a hotel transfer when the last of the celebrating has been done. Or if your vision is more low-key, kooky or otherwise out-of-the-box and creative we are all ears – we’d love to do what we can to make your day. 

Did we already say the cars are green? And matched with old school white wall tyres these two Chevrolets are all original, with heating on board, and with some modern comforts like Bluetooth stereo and a cooler in the boot for some bubbly along the way! 

Importantly, behind the wheels of these Chevrolet cars are mature, engaging and experienced drivers – there‘s nothing like doors being opened at the right time; having a pleasant driving experience between destinations; and also a bit of nous in getting to the perfect photography settings. We don‘t starch our clothes, but definitely can move between formal, casual, retro or any other ouvre as required. 

At present we have just the ’56 Chevrolet available for passenger use with the ’57 currently available only for use in photography. But watch out, in coming months the ’57 will be available in a similar capacity.  

Bookings available from minimum 3-hours through to full day plus hotel return. 

We look forward to discussing your thoughts and dreams for the day! 

  • Private vehicle viewings available 
  • 30 day “hold-the-date” 
  • Standard packages upon request

And psst ... because d‘Luxe is also a tour business, we are used to delivering driving experiences that are out of the usual and presented with an especially engaged and flexible manner. It‘s all about having fun on the day, right! ;) 

We realise the difficulty with planning ahead while COVID-19 remains present and will endeavour to be as flexible as possible regarding bookings and potential rescheduling. Remember the ancient saying: This too shall pass. :)

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How many can fit in the cars?

The ’56 Chevrolet can fit four passengers plus driver with ease – there are four doors to make it happen without climbing. 

But the ’57 is more tricky, with a folding front bench seat for access to the rear. In theory it can also accommodate four passengers, but it is not so nice for the ‘piggy in the middle’ or for those with mobility issues – so we say it’s best suited to a couple.

And there are seatbelts for all, in both cars.

Is there music?

There definitely is music. The ’56 is fitted with Bluetooth® stereo while the ’57 has its original AM radio restored and fitted with auxiliary input. In either case, driver or passenger phones can be made to play throughout. And there are playlists available specifically for these drives, with special attention to the mid-fifties jazz playlist collected by John through the years of the ’57 being restored. (That’s restoration music, in more than one sense of the word.) 

Are the cars air conditioned?

They call it ‘4/40 Air Conditioning’ – four windows down and forty miles per hour, or ‘California Air Conditioning’! But seriously, even though these old cars tend to warm up with their V8 motors, the nature of vertical side windows make for pleasant driving breeze as you are going along – there’s none of that whistling or beating that happens with current-day cars. Unless it’s an absolute stinker on the day, all should be fine.

Are the cars heated?

In a word, yes.

Insurances?

Both Chevrolets have comprehensive vehicle insurance commensurate with their registration type. 

d'Luxe Classic Wedding Cars also carries public liability insurance in the event of losses or injury occurring separate to actual travel within vehicles. (Yep, lots of bases to cover in this game!)

Reviews

14 Dec 2019

My (now) husband and I organised for John and one of his lovely green Chevrolet coupes to chauffeur my grandparents to the family get-together on the morning of our recent wedding. After the wonderful cruise from Melbourne’s inner suburbs, listening to a playlist of old-school Italian crooners, they made a glamourous entrance up the drive-way of my family home. With the car still in place our wedding photographer made use of the set-up to create a delightful array of photos with the car, the green gardens and the period style home with my bridal party cutting loose in our morning satins out in front. It was a perfect start to an altogether wonderful day. I would recommend John and d’Luxe for any or all of your wedding day needs: transport, photography sessions, ceremony arrivals and hotel returns. The service is filled with style, courtesy and good humour – everything you need to complete a wedding day!
