Star Car Hire has been renting out retro wedding cars in NI for over 15 years. We LOVE cars and we want to help you find the right wedding car that suits your personality and needs.

Have a quick read below and we hope this helps you streamline your list
In NO particular order:
1. The Classic Volkswagen Camper Van
Star Car Hire has been hiring out vintage VW Campers for over 15 years and was the first company in Northern Ireland to offer these carsfor weddings. Our VW buses are cool, quirky and above all practical as they can seat up to seven passengers. Normally our campers are hired to transport the grooms party or bridal party (and in some cases both) whilst the Bride and Groom would normally travel in convoy in the second car on our list The VW Beetle! (view our campers here)
2. The Volkswagen Beetle
When we first started hiring out VW Beetles for weddings back in 2004 people thought we were crazy as they werent traditional and were a little smaller than the classic Daimler style wedding cars that were more popular back then. These days the classic VW Beetle has almost become a mainstream wedding car with couples using them for their weddings Worldwide. We now have a massive fleet of little Volkswagen Love-bugs including three white convertibles, a modern shaped convertible and two stretched Beetle limousines. These cars are bursting with character and are a great match for our classic camper vans. We offer package deals for a VW Beetle and Camper from 595 (subject to mileage and availability). Check out our VW Beetle collection here)
3. Classic Ford Mustangs
The Ford Mustang is an iconic American legend that has featured in thousands of Hollywood Movies and TV shows throughout the past seven decades. Actors like Steve McQueen and Nicholas Cage have helped the Mustang reach legendary status when theyve been behind the wheel in movies like Bullitt and Gone in 60 Seconds. Its Iconic styling made it one of the fastest and best-selling cars back in the 1960s and its timeless design still stand up today. Star Car Hire has TWO classic Mustangs that are available to hire throughout Northern Ireland. Our classic 1965 Convertible Mustang is one of the first models ever built and has been fully restored to a high standard. The car has been freshly painted in Ford Wimbledon White and is finished with a red leather interior and convertible top. Not only does this car look good its sounds great too with its 4.6 litre v8 289cui engine music to our ears!! (Check out some recent pics here.)
Our 1967 Fastback Mustang has a slightly sportier design and in our humble opinion is cooler than any modern day Super-Car on the road. Finished in silver with two charcoal stripes it bears resemblance to the Eleanor GT500 Shelby that was featured in Hollywood film Gone in 60 seconds with Nick Cage. Again, this car has a roaring 4.6 litre V8 and is not for the faint hearted. (Check out pics here)
4. 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air For the Rock N Roll Bride!
Its hard to beat car design in America in the 1950s as it was so extravagant and lavish with the introduction of large fins (inspired by the space-age), stunning curves and masses of chrome. These 50s classics have become Hollywood stars in their own right and have been featured in many period 1950s movies and TV shows. Have you ever wanted to be Danny and Sandy from Grease? Now is your chance! Our gleaming red 57 Chevy, finished with a glamourous white interior, is one of the finest models ever built in this period and is sure to brighten up your wedding day. (Check it out here)
5. Convertible 1956 Porsche Speedster
One of the coolest convertible wedding cars in Northern Ireland has to be our stunning black 1956 Porsche Speedster. Although fairly small in the back it never stops people from booking due to its legendary design and curves. A cousin of the Volkswagen Beetle, this car was a favourite amongst Hollywood actors back in the 1950s such as James Dean. It's a timeless classic with real class and presence and another amazing wedding car to pair up with our VW Camper collection. (Viewthe Porsche here)
6. The Citroen DS20
If youre into fashion then this Chic French classic Citroen DS20 is the wedding car for you. When these cars were first manufactured, they were way ahead of their time. Famous for their aerodynamic, futuristic body design and innovative technology, they still are considered by many as one of the most influential and beautiful cars ever built. With a clever self-levelling suspension system this French icon is also one of the most comfortable vehicles to sit in. Dont take our word for it get it booked and jump in!! (Pics here)
7. The Harry Potter Style Ford Anglia.
Although a few of us in the Star Car office grew up in the Roald Dahl book era (giving our ages away) Im guessing that most of our younger couples have grown up around Harry Potter Books and films. Well now its time to live the dream as you can actually hire our Potter style 1965 Ford Anglia, similar to that driven by Ron Weasley!! Although it doesnt fly this classic 1960s Ford is a cute little classic whether youre into Harry Potter or not. Finished in a baby blue with white roof this is a wedding car that gets people talking. (Check it out here)
8. Black 1969 Dodge Charger new for 2020!

The Dodge Charger is a bad guys car FACT!!! Its a true beast that has been featured in movies like Fast & Furious, Bullitt and Blade and always has that menacing bad-ass presence! This is a true Gas-guzzling American Muscle car that frightens most men, women and children Its 18 feet long, extremely loud and has massive a 6.3 litre Big-Block V8 engine that guzzles around 9 miles to the gallon. If I was to compare this car to music it would be Thrash Metal think early Metallica, Black Sabbath and Motorhead! Its not for everyone but in my humble opinion its the meanest and coolest car on our list! Check it out if you dare!!!
