Wedding Car Hire Business

Does anyone have any experience in this or know anyone that does?
I'm considering a classic muscle car for a weekend toy and in searching one out I've noticed the odd site offering hire / wedding hire which got me thinking is it much of a market to try and crack in to?  Any pros or cons if it's only a hobby second income?

    I have a 1970 VW t2 camper and have done a few paying weddings( all referrals from family and friends). I have considered doing it 'officially' as a second income business but never taken the actual step.

    Main issues for me are:

    It's stressful. When your in a classic car that's nearly 45 years old , you never know what's going to go wrong and I was so worried I might not get them to the wedding, (even though my van is reliable, I have had a clutch cable snap)

    To go commercial, your vehicle needs to be immaculate, where mine is a family camper. This means I would need a second van ūüėČ(my wife did not agree). Would be different in your situation as you wouldn't have kids and a dog destroying your pride and joy before your very eyes lol

    My insurance is fully comp with full salvage rights and an agreed value for £140 a year. This would nearly quadrupole in price.

    Plus sides:

    £300-£500 to pick up a bride and her father, take to wedding venue, wait an hour, take bride and groom to party venue, a few photo's.

    My advice would be if you do it, keep it local, not worth driving up and down the country and keep a good taxi hire firm in your contacts!
