About Us

As keen surfers we have always loved the classic VW campervans; their style, elegance and ultimate cool factor are unlike anything else! When we saw 'Lola' we just had to have her and our campervan wedding car and photo booth business was born. 

We run this along side professional catering and event services: KelmsleyOur aim is to offer a professional, friendly and compassionate service to couples getting married or those planning a special event. Having recently been wed oursleves, we appreciate how important it is to get it right on the day!

A bit about the lovely Lola...


After I started developing the mobile bar, I realised I needed a van to tow it, which could carry the bulky items such as the bar table, gazebo and drink stands. 


I looked at modern standard white panel vans but realised they lacked the charm of 'Vicent' the trailer bar. This is where the dream of owning the VW Bay Window Campervan started.


Finally the expensive cost of ownership and maintenance could be at least be subsidised whilst bringing yet more charm and joy to everyone's big day.

We have 'Lola' regularly maintained and services by the author of the Haynes Volkswagen Bay Restoration Manual, Fletcher Gillett, who runs the vintage auto repair in Kirdford, West Sussex.

Lola would have looked something like this in her former life, seeing 25 years service in the Swiss Army. The advantage to being an army ambulance in Switzerland is not only has she been lovingly maintained and rigorously serviced all her life, but due to Switzerland being a neutral country, she has also never seen active service, being used only as a minor injury response unit.


The idea then flourished into, 'why not incorporate a photo booth inside the bus'. Then everyone gets a look inside the wedding car and the Bride and Groom can get their guests more involved in their wedding day.


We also realised that although the chauffeuring service was restricted by law to weddings and funerals only, the photo booth would make a wonderful addition to an event where the bar is involved or even make a fantastic stand alone addition to any birthday party, anniversary, family gathering or special occasion.


We hope you enjoy our pride and joy!
