About Us

From the romantic to the dramatic, the classic to the swank

What we do

Based in the beautiful city of York, Limelight Wedding Emporium brings together an eclectic mix of wedding décor items designed to add that extra bit of “wow” to your big day.

From a selection of stunning wedding trees, a handcrafted flower wall, bespoke neon signs, floral and rustic “LOVE” letters, up-cycled pallet hearts, and more – we have everything from the romantic to the dramatic, the classic to the swank to ensure your wedding is a picture perfect success.

And let’s not forget our fleet of classic wedding cars! Whether riding in style as newlyweds, or chauffeuring the bridal party to your wedding destination, our beautiful cars (and handsome drivers) ensures everyone gets to the venue on time.

Choose from our beautifully stylish old white 1968 Jaguar MKII, our “bit of blue” 1930s vintage-style Beauford, our sweet little 1967 Morris Minor Convertible, and our newest – fully renovated – pride and joy, “Molly” the 1965 VW Split Screen Camper.

Who we are

Limelight Wedding Emporium is run by mother-daughter duo, Bev & Abbey, who are available to help with all your wedding wants and desires in the run up to your big day. Our team of perfectly suited & booted classic car chauffeurs are there for you, smile on face, champagne in hand, the day itself.

Our (Wedding-Perfect) Story

Once upon a time, there was a little girl from Yorkshire, who grew up to marry the man of her dreams… But, actually, her story doesn’t come in until later! In fact the beginning of Limelight lays with her parents – Nick & Bev – who really rather liked the 1968 MKII Jaguar she had on her wedding day. So much so, they decided to purchase it when the opportunity arose. And with that, 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 1930s vintage-style Beauford, 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…

Now, with all the excitement surrounding her sister’s wedding, that first little girl – who had been busy dwelling in distant lands with the man of her dreams (plus two children and a cat) – decided it was fair time to return home. Sharing her parents’ vision of creating a veritable wonderland of on-trend wedding goods, Limelight Wedding Emporium was born.

Bringing the wedding cars and blossom trees under the Emporium umbrella, this true family business has fast become one of York’s top destinations for all things wedding and wonderful.
