Our Story

The foundation of Limelight Wedding Emporium started back in 2013 with the purchase of a 1968 MKII Jaguar by husband & wife team, Bev & Nick. The car was used as a wedding vehicle by their daughter Abbey on her wedding day, and upon hearing it was up for sale, decided to buy it.

With this purchase, Limelight Wedding Cars was born in 2013.

The business quickly grew out of a passion for beautiful classic cars, and the desire to offer couples that extra bit of perfection on their wedding day. As such, a 1967 Morris Minor Convertible, and a 1965 VW Split Screen Camper (aka “Molly”) were soon added to the fleet.

When their second daughter got engaged in 2017, the couple saw an opportunity to delve further into the world of weddings. Shaped around the botanical trends that she loved, the business literally “bloomed” with the purchase of a selection of blossom and wisteria trees.

And with the trees came the scattering of the seeds for Limelight Wedding Emporium…

With a burgeoning diary of bookings, Abbey was welcomed to join the business in 2019 after a period living abroad. Sharing her parents’ vision of creating a veritable wonderland of on-trend wedding goods, Limelight Wedding Emporium was born.

With the cars and statement décor items sitting under the Emporium umbrella, the business continues to update, grow, and evolve with the trends. Today, this true family business is one of North Yorkshire’s go-to destinations for wedding styling and classic cars.
