Flawless! A joy from start to finish

Franky the campervan was a perfect addition to our wedding day! Stylish, cool & a hit with everyone! The groomsmen arrived in Franky and made an entrance. Marc & Michelle were lovely to communicate with and on the day gifted us with 2 beautiful handmade glasses. An unforgettable experience!

Thrilling Amazing Service on Our Special day

We want to thank both Marc & Michelle. True saviours providing your services when sadly our original supplier was unable to keep the business going. You stepped in and made the day as perfect as we had originally planned. A personal service throughout, we loved Franky. Wish I could hire you every day to get me around. :-). Would recommend you to anyone looking for the VW touch on their special day. Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

What a magical experience - Michelle and Marc, you really did make our wedding day something special! From our first communication, to meeting one another on the day - being greeted with bubbles, and made to feel at ease - even with the bumpy route to the venue off the beaten track! You are real life angels, and we couldn’t recommend you enough.
Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🏼 A&B X

This is the company to go with!

Worth every penny! If you are thinking of hiring a VW for your wedding, I highly recommend it! It was such fun to be in the van with my favourite chosen people on the day! We had the music we wanted, some bubbles and extra special surprise touches that we were not expecting!

Michelle and Marc did the best to ensure we had everything we needed, when we needed it. Nothing seems like too much to ask and Marc was always in the right parking spot, waiting ahead of us, when we needed him, anticipated what would be helpful in the moment and diffused any stress before it could even occur.

It was so lovely to see the fun and smiles the van put on the faces of passers-by. For me, this VW van represented my childhood but either way, it was a high class service in fun, hipster packaging!

An amazing part of our day

Michelle and Marc made our wedding so special. They were kind and accommodating throughout the whole process. All of the little touches (from the personalised glasses to the yellow bottle of prosecco) were deeply appreciated. Franky looked wonderful with the flowers that matched our colour scheme. Thank you for such an amazing experience!

Wedding day

Couldn't fault Marc and Michelle (or Frankie!). They were so accommodating and responsive, and made us feel like royalty on our wedding day 🙂.

Fantastic experience

We hired the Campervan for our wedding day on very short notice from Michelle and Marc. And they were both very responsive and patient. The whole experience was way beyond our expectations. Marc is professional, punctual and delightful. It rained a bit when he picked us up, and he gave me this white bridal umbrella and cheered me up. And he parked Franky in good angles for our photo shoots. Marc really makes me feel like a bride. Also, very reasonable price and would highly recommend to anyone for their special day!
