The classic London Taxi is internationally famous, being recognised all around the world, if you have not seen them in person, you will have seen them on TV or in movies. The London taxi cabs, are iconic and classic, they are so recognizable that they have become cultural symbols of our cities.
The rare classic Fairway London Taxi model is the prettiest around, the gleaming white coachwork and extensive chrome fittings including old style chrome bumpers make it ideal for weddings. It is definitely a very practical wedding vehicle; it has seating for 6 people with wheel chair access and can easily accommodate even the most extravagant of bridal wear. The large, wide opening doors of the classic white taxi are more practical for a bride in her wedding dress, making it a far better option than a saloon car.
It is a vehicle for hire that comes with all the benefits of a limousine without the cost; the taxi is wheelchair-accessible, making it quick and easy travel for the elderly, infirm or handicapped, without the problem of having to find parking. The chauffeur exits the car, greets the passenger who is in a wheelchair, and helps them onto the ramp and into the taxi, and straps the wheelchair in with belts, clips, and locks in for safety.
In comparison to a taxi cab, a chauffeur is more professional, skilled and polished driver, who can be friendly, discrete and a knowledgeable driving escort, and who will certainly make sure your journey is a safe and comfortable one with their attitude, manner and professionalism. Attire is another aspect which can make the difference, the chauffeurs wear a dark suit, white shirt, a conservative dark tie, highly polished black shoes, wearing black gloves and a peaked cap.
Another difference with chauffeur hire is that a chauffeur service is pre planned whereas a taxi service is unplanned. The chauffeur will come to your door on arrival for collection, not honk the horn like a taxi usually does, the chauffeur service is a delight in itself, as a customer will not be left unwatched and uncared during the service duration. The Chauffeur will open and close the car doors for the passengers, help in with the wedding dress and hold bouquets, clutch bags etc, and be at hand with an umbrella if so needed.
Dare to be different with a rare London wedding taxi which is valeted after every journey and can be tastefully decorated with ribbons and flowers as part of the hire service.
