A charge point can be found a short 12 minute drive away at the Shurland Hotel. It is equipped with a Type 2 and a 3-pin charger, but if you hire a wedding car from EVision, you won’t need to worry about charging up your electric car, as we can arrange a chauffeur service for the bride and groom, as well as any other wedding guests – we’re sure a chauffeur driven luxury wedding car experience will impress the mother-in-law!

The Barnyard can be found in Upchurch, surrounded by romantic orchards and beautiful views. This venue offers a couple of ceremony locations, depending on the party size and time of the year. Whether you have a party of 30 or 300, the Barnyard are more than happy to accommodate your needs and requirements.

If you are looking for a more traditional ceremony, St. Margaret’s Church is only a five minute drive up the road.

The Barnyard and St. Margaret’s Church make the perfect combo!

Cooling Castle is an elegant high beamed barn set in the beautiful countryside of Cooling. Start the day off right with a drink to calm your nerves in the barn, whilst you wait for your guests to arrive, and take a stroll out onto the patio and adjoining gardens. Couples have the choice of having the ceremony in one of two locations, either the Fathom Barn or outside in the gardens. There is also a local church a short stroll away from the grounds if you are wanting a traditional wedding. To give you an idea of pricing for this lovely venue, your wedding day could be booked on a Saturday from £9,800.

Based on the outskirts of Lenham, in Maidstone, you will find Chilston Park Hotel. A British country house set back off the main roads, with elegant double rooms and master suites, perfect for the night before the wedding.

Executive Chauffeur Services
When it comes to wedding cars for your wedding day, you will need to decide what sort of package you would like. Some companies operate on an hourly price, or just a one way drive to a venue location. If you are thinking of having a separate ceremony to reception then you will need to find a company that can accomodate this.
Here at EVision we can offer both self hire and chauffeur driven electric vehicles including the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model S and X, as well as the Audi e-tron, that all make fabulous wedding cars.

What electric cars are available at EVision?
At EVision Electric Vehicle Hire, we have a range of electric vehicles that range from a luxurious Tesla, to an Audi e-tron and something smaller for everyday use such as the Renault ZOE.
If you’re interested in chauffeur hire for weddings cars in Kent we would highly recommend a Tesla. We have the following models available:
Tesla Model S
A Tesla rental would make a great addition to your wedding day, but now it comes down to which one. We have a range of Tesla Model Ss from an 85 to the P100D, and for a wedding we would definitely say the P100D. It has the WOW factor you’ll be looking for as well as a luxurious finish on the inside. At EVision, we have a Tesla Model S available in traditional white, but who’s to say you need to be traditional, you might like red, depending on your colour scheme?
Tesla Model X
If you are looking for luxury wedding cars in Kent for your bridal party or perhaps the ushers then you may need a vehicle with more room. A Tesla Model X comes with seven seats as well as falcon style doors, that will guarantee a stylish entrance to any event! The Tesla Model X has the largest storage capacity of any SUV in its class, so will be perfect to store any outfit changes, as well as the essentials for a wedding.
Another high end car available on the EVision fleet is the Jaguar I-Pace that joined us late last year. The Jaguar I-Pace may not be the first choice of wedding car, but it has definitely been a popular choice this year. Earlier on in the year it was announced the winner of European Car of the Year 2019, and since then our Jaguars have been in and out on hire more times than we can count.
The I-Pace is available is white and black, and with a range of 292 miles you won’t be worrying about the range on this sporty car if you choose self hire. Standard wedding car hire companies will have some form of Jaguar available, but why not choose the Jaguar car of the future to arrive at your wedding. We would also highly recommend a Jaguar I-Pace if a Tesla isn’t for you!
