General Information

Established in 1982 our professional chauffeur-driven wedding car service offers an exceptional choice of vehicles and is flexible with journeys to suit your individual requirements. Our chauffeurs wear traditional tunic style grey uniform as shown in the photo's and all are proud of their attention to detail on your wedding day.

Our illustrations endeavour to show correct colour, condition and size of the vehicles, although we still recommend viewing as they tend to be larger and more accommodating in the rear than may be apparent. Please remember that as many of the vehicles are exclusive to ourselves it is advisable to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

For civil ceremony weddings where the ceremony and reception are at the same venue the vehicle will stay whilst the ceremony takes place and then, immediately after this, take the bride and groom for a short drive, five minutes or so, before returning for their photographs and reception.

Our vehicles complement the bride, they are not the 'star' and travelling in them should be an enjoyment of a more serene and less rushed world.

Prices vary according to the vehicle and travelling distance from our Colchester base and there are discounts available for non-Saturday church, civil and registry office services and for multi-vehicle booking. Payment can be taken by credit card over the phone on 01206 546348.

All our vehicles:

  • Supplied with a single ivory ribbon although white or coloured are available
  • Carry umbrellas
  • Have flowers on the rear shelf where appropriate
  • Fully insured for weddings and for public and Employers Liability
  • Professionally maintained

Champagne Service

We offer a champagne service, allowing for engraved glasses and a half bottle of champagne to enjoy after the service.

Terms & Conditions

We regret that in the event of a cancellation the booking fee is not refundable, but we do accept change of dates. Cancellations not notified two months prior to the wedding date are payable in full. We reserve the right of substitution should any vehicle not be available due to circumstances mechanical or otherwise beyond our control.

Please provide us with as much information as possible

Dear le Baron
Thank you so much for your services at our recent wedding on Easter Sunday 2011. Please pass on our thanks to both chauffeurs. Both of them were fantastic-helpful, courteous and immaculately dressed. The cars were beautiful, elegant and very comfortable. We were very grateful for the iced water which was supplied in both cars- this was very welcome after nearly two hours of smiling for photos, especially on such a warm day. We had a magical wedding day, so please accept our thanks again for helping to make it so perfect.
Nick and Marya

Peter & Richard,
Thank you for being our chauffeurs and making our day extra special. The cars were lovely.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the beautiful car we hired from you for our wedding on 5 January 2010. The driver was fantastic, so professional and very friendly. I felt like a princess as I left my parents house. A perfect way to start our wedding day. Thanks again.
Nicola & James

Thank you for being so brilliant on our wedding day. You did everything as you said you would and the spotty ribbon looked divine on the front of your beautiful cars. You helped towards the day being so perfect, and were a pleasure to deal with during all the planning. Hope your cats are OK!
Love Lucy & Alan

Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith

1949 Earls Court Show Car

  • 3/4 passengers
  • Deep Ebony and Light Ivory
  • Fawn Cloth Seating
  • Walnut Cabinetwork
  • Cool Fawn Carpet
  • Flat Floor
  • Vanity Mirrors
  • Electric Division
  • Rear-hung rear doors for ease of entry/exit

Commissioned specifically for exhibition at the 1949 Earls Court Motor Show this pre-war style touring limousine coachwork was hand built by James Young. Little early history is known except the previous owner purchased it in the early 1960's and stopped using it in 1974 to start a restoration, which he never finished. We purchased it in 2003 and completed a full overhaul of the mechanicals and a bare-metal respray. Most of the brightwork was also replaced or replated.
The fawn cloth interior is very comfortable and the rear (coach) hung rear doors give ease of entry and exit. The large Lucas P100 chrome headlights either side of the famous Palladian-style Rolls-Royce radiator grill is a must for photographs.

The Silver Wraith, launched in 1947, was an evolution of the pre-war Wraith and was offered in the traditional chassis only form ready for the fitting of Bespoke coachwork.
Rolls-Royce constantly refined the Silver Wraith during its production. The 4256cc engine was tuned to become the 'big bore' 4,566cc in 1951 and automatic transmission was offered as an option in 1953, with our Paris Show car being the very first.
Once again the press raved about the car. 'All the world knows that Rolls-Royce carry on an unremitting search for engineering perfection in everything they undertake. The qualities which made their aircraft engines famous, and their cars the finest procurable, are the result of hard work scientifically conducted, and of a painstaking attention to detail from the large to most minute, and now with this new range of cars it is believed that they are the best that Rolls-Royce have ever built'
The Silver Wraith was described like this: 'In common with all Rolls-Royce cars, the Silver Wraith has an indefinable something about it, a delicacy of behaviour, which excapes definition in written words. It is a car for the connoisseur in cars'.

Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith

1953 Paris Show Car

  • 3/4 Passengers
  • Champagne over Mulbbery
  • Fawn Cloth Seating
  • Heavily Figured Walnut Cabinetwork
  • Mohair Carpet
  • Flat Floor
  • Vanity Mirrors
  • Electric Division
  • One of only seven in this style

The long wheel base chassis gives increased room to the passenger compartment which is divided from the chauffeur by an electric glass division and is upholstered in light fawn cloth and retains the original matching seat covers. The woodwork is heavily figured walnut.
The exceptionally comfortable and accommodating rear seat carries two or three and a further adult can be carried in the front.

In 1953 this Silver Wraith was hand-built by James Young with beautiful touring limousine coachwork and flown to Paris for the 1953 Paris Motor Salon. It is completely original with only two previous owners and extremely rare being one of only seven built to this style.
In 1959 it was used by Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher for their honeymoon and passed to its second owner.
In 1966 it was decommisioned and locked away.
After 35 years, in 2001, it was re-commisioned and Le Baron acquired the vehicle exclusively for weddings.
In 2002 it paraded for the Queen and Prince Philip at Windsor Castle.

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud

  • 4/5 Passengers
  • Rolls-Royce Porcelain White

The classic Rolls-Royce (and matching Bentley) styling from the mid 50's through to the mid 60's, has timeless beauty and grace which belies their true size. Exceptionally comfortable with luxurious leather interiors and Wilton carpeting with walnut veneers.
Our model is one of the last made with the exceptionally smooth straight six 4880cc engine, a V8 being used from early 1959. We purchased the vehicle in 1989 in a semi derelict state and had a full mechanical overhaul and body refurbishment.

Rolls-Royce Phantom VI

Ceremonial Limousine

  • 6/7 Passengers
  • Metallic Ascot Grey
  • Baroda Blue Wool Interior
  • Figured Walnut Woodwork
  • Royal Blue Wilton Carpeting
  • Face Forward Occasional Seating
  • Electric Division
  • Capacious Interior
  • Large square doors for easy entry/exit
  • High Interior

Le Baron are pleased to announce that following continued interest in our exclusive range of real traditional British quality wedding vehicles we have now sourced a ceremonial Rolls-Royce Phantom, similar to the one from the Queen's fleet which conveyed Kate Middleton to Westminster Abbey for her wedding.

Rolls-Royce continued to produce a chassis for coach-built bodies from 1968 to 1992 but only 374 were supplied, with over 70 to kings and queens and heads of state (seven of these being fully armour plated), 19 to public corporations, 18 to their "music, stage and screen" clientele, and the remainder to businesses and private owners, although one started in 1971 was not finished until 1993, and another was destroyed by fire on board a ship delivering to South Africa. For the majority of these magnificent carriages the body was individually built to the new owner's requirements. Ours was ordered in July 1973 and eventually supplied over two years later to the Alexander Howden Group in August 1975, but in the early 1980's became the Lord Mayor of Manchester's official transport with it being used by Princess Anne and the Duchess of Kent on official engagements. Because of the bespoke nature of the Phantom no price was ever quoted by Rolls-Royce but when new ours was about three times the average house price and the most expensive car in the world.

Recently refurbished and finished in Ascot grey, a very neutral mid-shade metallic, complemented with original Baroda blue wool interior, the same as the Queen's two Phantom VI's, and piped in Royal blue with matching Wilton carpeting and magnificent walnut veneers. This Phantom exemplifies regal luxury and includes two air conditioning systems. The car of choice for HRH Queen Elizabeth II. A full six/seven passenger vehicle which can accommodate the largest of dresses ours has large clear rear quarter lights providing an excellent view of the bride and groom. Step up into a Phantom.

Bentley 'S' Type Saloon

1958 Large Saloon

  • 4/5 Passengers
  • Pearl Grey
  • St. James' Red Leather Interior
  • Maple Woodwork
  • Regal Red Wilton Carpeting
  • Flat Floor
  • Vanity Mirrors
  • Large Saloon

Matching the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud but with the rounded Bentley radiator the 'S' Type in its neutral metallic pearl grey bodywork and deep red leather interior has always been popular for weddings. Purchased in 1982 to start our wedding business we encourage couples to view not just this but all our cars. The normal comment on sitting in the Bentley is, apart from the comfort and quality of the luxurious leather interior, that it "is much bigger than I thought".

Dear Peter
I am sorry it has taken me so long to send you my heartfelt thanks for helping me out on such short notice. I hired a beautiful 1958 Bentley from you for a wedding on the 26th July starting out at Felixstowe. Your car made the day, the bride was delighted and your service excellent. It was a real pleasure talking to such a kind and helpful person.
Wishing you all the best
