Convertible Bridal Cars
The Jaguar Mk5 convertible is one of the most popular wedding cars with Perth photographers. The stylish curves, large chrome grill and elegant coachwork provide a beautiful backdrop for timeless wedding photography. With the hood down, photographers have fun capturing intimate images with the natural light and open scenery in the background.
Please enjoy this photographic overview of our Jaguar convertibles over the past nine years.
Beside the glamour, the Jaguar convertibles are the most fun wedding car imaginable. It seems everybody that you drive by offers a comment and congratulations which helps to make your wedding day or special event even more memorable.
Couples captured in the rear of the convertible on their wedding day have an a look of enjoyment from the range of images we receive.

The photography sessions at weddings at Sandalford Winery regularly use locations at the front gate through to the riverside. Use of the wedding cars to move from location to location is a highlight of the day.
Most brides let loose after the ceremony and enjoy the thrill of open top cruising after the ceremony. Braided and tied back hairstyles work best in the rear of the convertibles or a scarf or veil is also useful if you have a longer drive between photo locations and on to the reception. Seen here crossing the Swan River in Fremantle on the way to feature photographs.
Convertible wedding car hire
Wedding work as the feature bridal car is the regular work the the chauffeured cars. The convertibles usually drive to the wedding ceremony with the hood placed up. This provides shelter from the elements and is a unique and private experience in the rear of the car for the bride and family.
The convertibles usually deliver the bride to the church with the hood up because most of the guests are inside the church and will not see the wedding cars arrive. If you are planning with your videographer to film your entrance to the church, ask the driver to put the roof down a block before the arrival and you can make a grande entrance.
Out of doors civil ceremonies at Swan Valley wineries or parks around Perth city or on the Swan River foreshore are when the convertibles really stand out. Videographers and photographers can capture a stunning record of your entrance with ease. The driver will usually stop a few hundred metres before the ceremony location and stow the hood before making a graceful entrance to the designated set down point. Of-course you can arrive with the hood up too if you prefer a more intriguing entry teasing guests for a first look of the bride’s arrival.
After the ceremony
The driver will always stow the hood during your ceremony if you had it up at arrival (unless you request otherwise). Photos with family and friends at the ceremony will often feature the bridal car as a prop and leaving the ceremony top down in a beautiful vintage convertible surrounded by friends is a wonderful way to head off to your new life as husband and wife.
