Fiat 500 Hire for your wedding
Classic Fiat 500s won hearts and minds all over the world when they were newly built from 1957 to 1975. Now they are charming the modern public all over again by being leased by Fiat 500 Hire for weddings, corporate events and other days when people want the Italian-style drive of their lives.
The Fiat 500 Hire business was started by a devotee of the sweet city car, Olivia Gauch. Olivia has Italian great-grandparents and was besotted the moment she saw the iconic urban run-around. However, having bought one she didn’t want it spending too much time in the garage, so in 2015, she offered to hire it out for special occasions and found it snapped up for three weddings.
Now Fiat 500 Hire has a fleet of smart little cars spruced up and ready to drive all over the country.
“They’ve been used for TV and lots of marketing events and photo shoots” says Olivia. “We have them based all over the country, in different colours. Some can travel anywhere as they are transported by a trailer.
“They’re very popular for weddings because nowadays many couples want something a bit different. And although they are small, we have had 6 feet tall rugby players in them! We just take the front passenger seat out to give them leg room.”
