The first of our classic cars is a 1968 Jaguar 3.4 S Type in Ivory Old English White and is the epitome of a wedding car. The S Type was described in the 1960s advertising by Sir William Lyons, the owner and chief designer of Jaguar cars, as having “Space, Grace and Pace”.
To hire this Jaguar for a weekend Summer wedding the cost for the day is just £400 dropping to £300 for a week day wedding in the winter.

The S Type has all the grace that was opulent in the 60s. Not only is the Ivory paint work faultless on the outside but the contrasting Black interior is superb. As with most Jaguars of this era the inside is festooned with Walnut wood panels and more switches than you can shake a stick at.
Of the original 24,993 S Type Jaguars built between 1963 and 1968 there are now less than 1000 still on the road Worldwide and less than 400 in the UK, few if any in better condition than this one.
