Services offered

'Lillie' is a gorgeous 1972 tin top bay window. Restored locally to an extremely high standard in VW pastel white with bespoke oak interior and pale cream upholstery she really is a fantastic example of a VW bay window bus. Lillie seats up to 6 people in 'L' shaped style seating with one seated in the front.

'Lilah', is a 1965 Beetle. Finished in VW 'bahama blue' with a high quality Bernard Newbury interior she is a multiple VW show winner and has feautured as a centre spread in Volksworld magazine. She seats 3 passengers or the front seat can be removed to accommodate brides with a fuller gown, seating 2 passengers.

'Lulu', the beautiful 1960 early split screen is painted in Dorset Dubhire's bespoke signature shade of powder blue and ivory. Her oak and cream interior and classic style make her extremely popular for weddings. She seats up to 6 people in conference style seating. A real head turner and affectionately known as 'the South's best loved splitty'! Lulu is believed to be the oldest splitscreen bus available to hire for weddings locally.

'Lucy', a 1974 baywindow deluxe bus, is painted in the same popular (and top secret!) colour combination of powder blue and ivory as Lulu the splitscreen. With pale cream upholstery and a bespoke oak interior she seats up to 6 passengers comfortably in conference style seating with one seated in the front.

Newest addition ‘Libby’ is a beautiful 1974 ivory Karmann Convertible Beetle. Seating 2-3 passengers she’s a gorgeous bridal car and with the option of having her roof up or down couples can really make an entrance (or exit) and enjoy fantastic photo opportunities!

The best way to make an entrance!!

Dorset Dubhire was a beautiful way to arrive at my wedding. The team went above and beyond with the decorations and making it a fairy tail come true.

The communication and punctuation was amazing from start to finish and I am beyond happy with our decision. Highly recommend!!!

Absolutely excellent!

Wow wow wow! We booked our cars 2.5 years in advance and they did not disappoint. Catherine was so so lovely, the whole way through our wedding planning journey. We used three of the cars for our wedding day and had so many compliments from our guests. Our favourite photos are those in which the cars are in, they are everything we wanted and more. The choice in decorations to the recommendations of where to have pur photographs - over and above. The drivers were exceptional, they worked together to make sure it was all seamless. They were funny and put us all at ease. My children also loved the car beep as the ringtone on one driver's phone. Thank you so so so much for being part of our wedding day. Our children often speak about the journey to the ceremony and it fills me with such joy, we will all have memories that last a life time.
