OK, wedding helicopters are somewhat extravagent, but if travel by land simply isn't good enough for you, then why not arrive at your wedding via the skies!
Before jumping straight in and book this form of alternative wedding transport, there are certain things you will need to ensure before chartering any wedding helicopter. Primarily permission to land and take off from landowners needs to be sought alongside confirmation that the times you plan to fly are suitable. Certain other guarantees may be required by the charter company so be prepared, and make sure you ask all the necessary questions up front.
Whilst any helicopter you hire will be piloted (so there's no need to panic and try and rush through your pilots license!), it is unlikely that the pilot will be dressed in anything too smart. If this does cause a particular problem, a bit more cash exchanging hands could help rectify the situation.
Helicopters can be chartered for weddings from around £500 and make for a spectacular entrance, so if you're up for the challenge, why not go for it?
Ever fancied travelling in an emergency vehicle without being arrested, on fire (just go with us on this one) or hospitalised? Well you can these days - and what's more, you can do so en route to your wedding!
Fire Engines, American Ambulances and American Police Cars have all been hired as a means of alternative wedding transport in the last few years, and as word spreads so do the number of companies offering such a service.
Some of the wedding emergency vehicles on offer here in the UK have been fully converted into plush limousine style transport whilst others remain true to their history. All come with their own drivers and will definitely turn heads - especially if you can persuade the driver to pop the siren on for a few moments!
With packages starting from a few hundred pounds, they certainly are an unusual form of wedding transport that will really make a splash.
Wierd & Wonderful Wedding Transport
Of course any mode of transport is theoretically possible. In the past, stories of couples arriving on horseback, by canoe, in a hot air balloon, tractor, JCB, camper van and even in a hearse have all made the press. In fact, each year we are inundated with couples asking us if we know where they can hire unique and unusual forms of wedding transport, from miniature trains to donkeys!
