This week we’re going to begin introducing you to our preferred wedding service providers, allowing you find out a little bit more about them and their role in our unique and exciting industry. To gain a coveted spot on Hudson’s recommended list, vendors need to be experienced at working at our venue and provide consistently excellent service at a fair price. We don’t accept commission from any of our service partners as we only recommend based on quality of product and service offered.
First up, meet Classic Cats Vintage Car Specialists – our favourite wedding transport providers. Classic Cats are our neighbours at Vredenheim and house their fleet of gorgeous vintage and modern cars right here in their impressive brand new showroom. Available for professionally chauffeur driven hire for your wedding, their perfectly maintained vehicles can be viewed next time you visit us. Having worked with this great company for the past five years, we can confidently vouch for them.
We chatted to Quentin Strydom, owner of Classic Cats.
Tell us a little more about your company and the service that you offer…
Classic Cats is the leading vintage car hire company. Our main focus is providing brides with a luxury wedding car for their special day.
How long have you been working in the industry?
What price range is your service?

What is one of the challenges you face in your industry?
Clients leaving their dream wedding car booking too late.
What makes your service unique?
All our classic cars are owned by us, so we do not rely on any third party to supply us with a car. You can walk into our showroom at any time and actually view your wedding car.
Tell us about a wedding that you remember and why…
The wedding has not happened as yet, but it’s rather special. The couple who are getting married in December this year used one of our cars for their matric farewell. Fast forward a few years and the wedding proposal day started off with a drive around Stellenbosch in the same car. Finally they will be using the car for their wedding day too!
What piece of advice would you most like to offer brides and grooms reading this?
Most couples don’t realise it, but your wedding car does form a large part of your special day. The car needs to get the bride to the church on time and also features in most wedding albums, so take your time when looking for a car. Most importantly go and view the car before you make any final decision.
What is your service mission statement?
Only good things can come from combining luxury and passion.
