Lorna Newman Wedding Photography

I absolutely love photographing weddings, it is always such an honour to be a part of someone’s special day and one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.
I like to take a relaxed, natural but fun approach. I love a chance to get creative, as well as capturing all those natural moments & details that tell the story of the day. I always tailor my approach to suit each couple and I love all styles of wedding, but I particularly like a quirky one!

Classic Car Hire North

Make the groom’s day with a self-drive wedding car from our large range of classic cars in Yorkshire, Cheshire and Oxfordshire. He’ll love being heard coming in a raucous 1960s Ford Mustang, an AC Cobra, or a Corvette Stingray. Or he could arrive with panache in a beautiful Aston Martin DB7, E-Type Jaguar, Jaguar XK150 evocation, Morgan or Porsche 911 sports car.

A classic sports car hire makes a fantastic gift from bride to groom, as well as a stunning getaway car. Or you can choose from the more traditional, but ever popular, four seater cars from the 1960s and 70s that make for unusual wedding transport. These range from Morris Minors, VW Beetle, Jaguar MK2, to a lovely classic convertible Rolls Royce. If you feel that you need a driver, it’s not difficult to persuade one of your friends or relatives to chauffeur you. They usually jump at the chance!

The opportunities for memorable photographs for your wedding album are plentiful as you can use the car as a prop. Because you have the car all day or longer you don’t need to rush. The cars are very camera friendly and your photos will be unique and special.
