With 75%[1] of UK weddings postponed due to Covid-19, ride-hailing app FREE NOW is launching the UK’s first drive-through wedding.

Having recently merged with private hire vehicle (PHV) ride-hailing app Kapten, FREE NOW is the UK’s only platform where you can book a black cab and a PHV through one app. To celebrate this union, FREE NOW has announced its COVID-compliant drive-through wedding ceremony, free of charge, for couples who have had their nuptials postponed due to coronavirus and can’t wait to get hitched.

Bringing a touch of Las Vegas to the UK, the drive-through weddings will take place in London on 10th September. To be considered, couples can nominate themselves, or a couple they know, via FREE NOW’s website ( until Saturday 5th September with a brief explanation as to why FREE NOW should marry them.

FREE NOW will choose the lucky couples and notify them by Sunday 6th September.

Five couples will be chosen to be wed by an agnostic celebrant in a beautiful central London location. The groom-to-be will be picked up in a black cab, and the blushing bride will be collected in a white PHV. Naturally… They will reunite at the aisle of their drive-through wedding ceremony where they’ll exchange their rings and vows.

To capture the special moment as couples tie the knot, a wedding photographer will be on hand for all couples taking part; gifting them with the beautiful photo-moment that COVID-19 had earlier robbed from them.

Not only will FREE NOW pick up the entire tab for the matrimony, one lucky bride and groom will be gifted £1,000 to spend towards their honeymoon, travel rules permitting.

Mariusz Zabrocki, General Manager of FREE NOW UK, said: “We all know someone who has been in limbo as they’ve had to postpone their wedding due to COVID, and have felt their pain. And with so much fun currently taken out of weddings, such as not being allowed to have a proper reception, only inviting up to 30 people and a ban on singing; we were inspired to step in and enable some lucky couples to get married in a fun and unusual way.

“And, as a ride-hailing app that has recently joined together black cabs and private hire vehicles, it seemed only fitting to create the UK’s first drive-through wedding, to help create that lasting memory.”

In keeping with the current Government guidelines, the weddings will be kept as short as possible and take place in a socially-distanced manor
