About

Price from £250

Are you looking for something different for your wedding transport? Great White Occasions offer the ultimate chauffeur-driven wedding transport experience in their vintage 1972 VW camper van, Bruce. They are a family run business and take great pride in offering a friendly and personalised service.

Experience

Run by married couple Daniel and Emma, Great White Occasions aim to get your big day off to a unique and stylish start. Bruce the VW camper van is owned and driven by them, so they can ensure the service is friendly and personal to each couple.

Services offered

Bruce the VW camper van can comfortably seat 5 adults in the rear and 2 of the seats are removable if they are not needed or more space is needed for larger dress. Due to the size of the VW camper van, it is ideally suited to being the main wedding transport, or can be used to transport the bridesmaids or groomsmen, or even lucky friends and family. Each booking includes a complimentary bottle of champagne to celebrate in style, and the interior of the VW camper van has a luxury custom made interior and a modern sound system.

If you are having your wedding or civil partnership ceremony and reception at the same venue, you can still enjoy a chauffeur-driven journey with your loved ones. They can drive you to a nearby location for photos, or just for a drive around so you can enjoy your first married moments together with a glass of champagne, before you start the rest of your celebrations

    The camper van was a super addition to our vintage style wedding day. Daniel and Emma are quite simply marvellous hosts, they brought lovely finishing touches; the hamper and flutes of fizz. Nothing was too much trouble. We wholeheartedly recommend Great White occasions to you. You will not be disappointed!

    Regards,
    Stacey and Conal

    We booked with Great White Occassions after finding them via a Google search of local wedding transport. The price was incredible compared to most other transport providers. We booked. Most would consider it a gamble to book transport before seeing it but it was well worth it. We did go and look a week or two later at a local wedding fair; Bruce was immaculate and Emma and Daniel were such a lovely couple to work with.

    They arrived promptly on the day of our wedding and the experience was really enjoyable for all who travelled in Bruce. We would certainly recommend Great White Occasions to anyone looking for wedding transport. First class service at a great price.

    Thank you Emma and Daniel!

    We had an amazing wedding and "Bruce" played a part in making the day so special. If you're looking for a wedding car that is a bit different and full of character, this is the one for you! Daniel and Emma were really friendly and professional and provided a great service. Would definitely recommend!

    I loved arriving at the venue in Bruce, he was stunning inside and out. Emma and Daniel were lovely they stayed after the service and allowed us to take pictures. Everyone was amazed at our choice of wedding transport. I would definitely recommend Great White Occasions to other people.

    Bruce is a beautiful VW camper van that we fell in love with and would definitely recommend to people. You get so much attention when you are riding in Bruce and you feel so important. Daniel and Emma are lovely people and we really want to steal Bruce off them.

    We used Great White Occasions for our wedding in October 2014 and I can%u2019t say enough good things about Daniel and Emma and the service they provided. It was a last minute decision to use them and I am so glad we did. From the word go Daniel and Emma were on hand to answer any questions I had and reassure me that everything would be fine on the day.

    Unfortunately for me we had a little rain on the morning of my wedding but Emma was on hand with a large umbrella and managed to get me in to the van without any problems. When we arrived at the church Emma successfully got all my bridal party into the church without getting a single drop of rain on us. It%u2019s those small touches that really made a difference to our day.

    My new husband was happily surprised when we left the church and Bruce was waiting to take us away to have our pictures taken along with a bottle of fizz. We made a few stops along the way to have various pictures taken; this wasn't a problem for Daniel and Emma as they happily waited patiently for us to return. I can%u2019t thank you both enough for all that you did for us on our special day and the reaction we got from our guests. Bruce was a real talking point and everyone wanted to have their picture taken with him. I just wish I could do it all again.

    Great White Occasions provided an amazing service and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating! We loved Bruce; they have done an amazing job of restoring it inside and out and was the perfect colour for our theme! It was great transport to get us to and back from the church & all our guests loved taking pics of us in it!

    Great White occasions provided a truly fantastic service at my wedding. Daniel and Emma were both very friendly and helpful. The trip in Bruce the camper van was brilliant I don't think I will ever forget it and what a wonderful start to a wedding it was. Top marks for a truly wonderful service.

    The perfect mixture of professional and personal, Daniel and Emma took great care of our little ones in the bridal party, and great care of us after the ceremony. We relaxed in the back with a glass of champagne while Bruce (the camper!) navigated a typically Mancunian storm. We only wish our reception venue had been further away so we could have enjoyed the experience a little longer!!
