VW Campervan Hire for Weddings

  

vw campervan hire wedding

We’re real fans of VW’s in our household, so this post was an absolute must when I stumbled upon them on Facebook one night! VW Campers are becoming ever more popular among enthusiasts and are starting to make their stamp on many a wedding day as well. Buttercup Bus have even started using them as the ultimate mobile photobooth! We’ve been to quite a few receptions and photobooths go down really well with guests, especially with a few prosecco’s on board! So here’s what Nathalie from Buttercup Bus had to tell us;

Q: You have quite a few VW’s available as wedding cars. How long have you been involved with the wedding industry and what inspired you to become involved?

It all started out about 10 years ago, when we were expecting our first child. My car at the time was a tiny Smart Car, so my Husband advised me to sell it and purchase something more practical for our new family. His jaw hit the floor, when I came back with my first campervan, Pushka. Whilst it was not what he had in mind, I told him that with her cream paintwork and good looks, we could do the odd wedding hire, here and there to fund keeping her running nicely. The campervan turned out to be far more popular than I anticipated, and I really enjoyed doing the weddings – so we saved and purchased additional campervans and set up as a business.

Q: What tips and advice can you give to couples when looking to hire their wedding transport?

Check with the supplier for recent photos of the vehicle – do they personally own all the vehicles, or are they owner by third parties? (We own all our vehicles!) Also, check their social media profiles for real photos of them in action. Ask how the vehicle will be decorated – for example, does it come with any flowers, bunting, soft furnishings and can you choose the ribbon colours to match your theme?

Q: How long in advance would you recommend couples book their wedding car? What about insurances?

Always go with a proper wedding transport company that have the specialist wedding transport vehicle and public liability insurance in place. Most of our wedding couples book their campervans between 12 to 18 months in advance of their wedding so that they get the vehicle colour of their choice.

Q:There is quite a bit of competition when it comes to wedding car hire. What can couples expect when the book their VW beetle wedding car or camper van with you?

Having 10 years experience, we know how to plan timings and routes with the correct contingencies in place. We also have multiple campervans and drivers in place as back up. We are familiar with many of the venues in our area of coverage, so understand how to best position the campervan for post ceremony photos. Our wedding transport business is a passion as well as a business, and we enjoy taking the time to clean and decorate the campers with little details to make the day extra special. We have pretty umbrellas, can offer personalised bunting and have bespoke flower garlands made specially to decorate our campervans.

Q: Which is YOUR most favourite wedding car/ van that you offer and why?

Ha ha – I am the campervans’ Mum. I talk to them, and tuck them up at night in their special blankets. I could not possibly choose a favourite, or the others would get upset with me!

Q: What is your biggest achievement to date? (It doesn’t have to be wedding related).

Alongside our wedding car services, we also offer campervan photobooth hire. This year we invested in upgrading our technology to include greenscreen. These photosbooths have enabled our campervans to be enjoyed at a much wider range of events to include private parties, corporate hospitality and promotional events. It led to us winning awards, to include “Most Innovative Photo Booth Hire Company” and “Best Media and Creative Business” in the last couple of years.

    It’s a pleasure. I’m really pleased with how it looks! It’s had a great response over on Instagram, there’s just something about the VW scene that captures certain people. As they say – “Once you’ve got the bug…..”
