Culturally Diverse Weddings

no comment |  Posted in:Wedding Cars November 24th, 2016

Many aspects of everyday life are related to culture including the most special day of your life ‘Your wedding day’. Providing the right wedding transport to meet cultural requirements is important. Many brides and grooms would love to marry in the tradition of their parents, follow the customs or at least introduce elements of a traditional wedding ceremony from their cultural backgrounds. These elements can be the venue, decorations, food, clothes & even the wedding vehicle. For example, the Indian culture like to have the most extravagant cars (preferably White in colour) such as the Rolls Royce Phantom as the groom’s arrival in particular can be most significant. In the Sikh culture, it is also possible for the Groom to arrive at the wedding on a horse.
