    A very special experience!

    We hired a classic 1966 Camper (Hector) for our wedding in Oxford. Mick and Denise were absolutely fantastic and made the whole experience very special. Ahead of the wedding they made organising all the logistics a breeze and were incredibly accommodating. They planned the routes thoroughly in advance (for instance, checking with the county council whether there were any restrictions on roads in the city centre). And were very patient with all of my emails and requests!

    Beth knew she was being collected on the day but I kept Hector a surprise. She loved the car and didn’t want to say goodbye! It was a fantastic choice and Beth was so happy with the surprise. Hector is a really well loved classic camper, the interior was super comfortable, and it was a lot of fun travelling through central Oxford in Hector.

    On the day Mick was very attentive and kind. He collected Beth in good time and was at the venue with enough time for us all to snap some photos outside of the registry before the ceremony.

    We were over joyed with the car, the kind service, and all the additional little touches (from a hamper with chocolates and strawberries, to Mick keeping the cork for our first bottle of bubbly as a married couple for us to have as a keepsake. Mick and Denise also bought our 6 month old a present!) We would highlight recommend the Old Camper Company!

    The best moment on our Wedding Day

    A massive thank you to Mick, Denise and Hector!

    Hector made our day ❤️ We highly recommend having him and his team as part of any wedding day.

    Hector the 1966 VW camper picked myself and the bridal party up. Mick and Denise greeted us outside the hotel with bubbles and smiles.

    Hector's interior was amazing and immaculately and lovingly presented. It felt like we were off on an adventure. We had music, champagne and Mick was just brilliant. Within the 25 minute ride my Wedding Day nerves had gone and we were having giggles and a blast.

    After we got married we went on a drive around Rugby. It was the by far the best part of the day (apart for the getting married part). Hector made some of our favourite photos. It was a chance to have a special moment to ourselves and felt surreal. Our drive was the most cherished part of the day.

    Thank you so much XXX

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Your wedding day was so special for us. When we were approached by Rugby School to offer our services to their competition to NHS workers to win a free wedding, we just jumped at the chance. You two were such deserving winners and we couldn't have imagined being part of anyone else's day. You both thanked us so many times on the day, but all we wanted to do is thank you both. The drive around Rugby was purely to show you both off to the world and what a better way to make passers by smile and wave than a 'Just Married' couple in a classic VW campervan :-) It was such a brilliant day and we were bursting with pride that we got to be part of it. It was just perfect xx

    Absolute perfection!

    Absolutely fantastic. Is give them a 1000 stars if it was an option! They were amazing. Punctual, friendly, and went above and beyond. Beautiful champagne in the campervan for on the way and post wedding, amazing picnic and a thoughtful gift and card for us both! And some lovely treats for our puppy. The campervans are absolutely beautiful. And they were dressed perfectly for the wedding with some lovely sunflowers! Mick and Denise are just fantastic people. Denise had to go back for my wedding bouquet half way to the venue, without a complaint! Mick managed to keep me calm all the way even after nearly bursting into tears when realising I had no flowers!! I’d recommend them to everyone and anyone!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Hannah and Karl what can we say, what an amazing review. Your wedding was so beautifully romantic - the ultimate vintage wedding to exchange vows on a steam train. We were just blown away by your day and felt totally transported back in time, so much so, we didn't want it to end. We were very excited when you chose Barney and Roobarb to be your wedding vehicles - we know you love your VWs and so felt chuffed Roobarb got to be in the limelight for a change. Thank you so much x

    Northing short of PERFECT!!

    Where to start with this fabulous pair??
    I booked beautiful Hector as a surprise for my husband to be on our wedding day back in August. Denise and Mick were more than accommodating from start to finish and were as excited about the surprise as I was I think! We managed to keep it a surprise, even managing a visit to see their stunning collection of campers. Mick showed us round and is clearly very passionate about the old VWs and has them looking pristine.
    The camper arrived on the day with beer and pop for hubby and the boys, and little snacks for the kids. Our 3year old thought it was fantastic, and has kept his sweetie box safe as a memory of Hector.
    They took us on a drive after our vows to some fab little beauty spots for photos, with a bottle of bubbly - which was a lovely touch, and then brought us back to our venue for more pics.
    A couple of days later Denise surprised me with some amazing photos she had taken herself, where she captured some brilliant moments.
    I honestly can't thank them and recommend them enough. They were kind, welcoming and the perfect suppliers to share such a special part of our day with. Thank you Mick and Denise.

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Danielle thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We were very excited to be part of your special day as we do love a surprise!! We couldn't believe that you had managed to keep Hector a secret from Adam, particularly little Archie - he'll probably be able to get a job with MI5 when he's older !! Mick loves nothing more than talking about campervans to a fellow VW enthusiast and when we discovered Adam had a collection of VW memorabilia, well that just made Mick's day! You all were a joy to be with and we loved our time alone with you and Adam when we whisked you away for a photoshoot with your photographer Dan. We are so lucky to have been able to share such a special moment with you - a day full of love and laughter and of course Archie's nicknames for everyone ha ha!! Love Denise and Mick xx

    Sensational! 💙🌻

    Where do we start? Denise and Mick and of course the campers Barney and Hector were fabulous. So so much attention to detail of nibbles and bubbles in the campers, home grown sunflowers decorating inside the campers especially to match our flower scheme. I mean they really went above and beyond!! I can’t imagine our wedding day being as perfect as it was without them all getting us there safely and so fashionably. The guests loved seeing the campers and having photos after the ceremony too. Thank you so much and would recommend this company to anyone for any event, but especially weddings!! Felicity & Gary

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Hi Felicity it seems only yesterday we were sitting in glorious sunshine surrounded by sunflowers! Ardencote Manor was the perfect venue and to get married overlooking a lake was just magical. We had such fun driving you and your mum and dad and bridesmaids - it was a real giggle. The home grown sunflowers were just a little special touch and we discovered only a few days after your special day that they are one of our allotment visitors, the muntjacs, most favourite things to eat!! Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, we are so grateful. Denise, Mick and of course the campervans Hector and Barney xx

    Amazing company - Highly recommend

    Hector took centre stage at our wedding. Denise and Mick could not have done more to make our day as special as possible! They were punctual and friendly. Stayed longer after our ceremony so Hector could be in the photos. Can’t say enough good things about this company. Loved supporting our local business in Rugby too.

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Thanks Suzanne for reviewing us. We have said it many times before but you and Tracey were the true definition of the 'happy couple' - we laughed the entire time we were with you and your guests were absolutely hilarious! We loved being part of a local wedding and being surrounded by other brilliant wedding suppliers. Thank you again for your card and for the little campervan wedding favours; they are just so sweet.

    Shall we do it all again - just so we can spend a few hours laughing! Denise, Mick and of course the star of the show Hector the campervan xx

    The perfect wedding transport!

    Mick and Denise were one of the first suppliers we met at a wedding fayre, newly engaged and wedding not yet booked, they were friendly and approachable and very patient letting us enjoy "the boys" until we finally booked without hesitation. We fell in love with Hector and Barney and were honoured to have them both share our big day. The journey to the venue was beautiful and set the tone for the day ahead, their special touches were very welcome. Thank you all.

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Claire and John thank you so much for your review. It was a wedding we were so much looking forward to as we had been speaking to each other for such a long time. It was the perfect winter wedding with brilliant sunshine, although there was a definite nip in the air brrr! As you mention the journey from your home to Draycote was so beautiful, driving along the country lanes, it was like we were all going on holiday! Thank you again for choosing us and we hope to bump into you again xx

    Amazing, Bespoke! Magical Experience

    Amazing 5* Attention to detail and service!

    What can I say about Denise and Mick which probably has not already been said.

    From the moment Denise and Mick arrived at our front door it was blissful expertly planned and executed service from the start and throughout. The beautiful Barney awaited to ferry myself and partner to our venue.

    A graceful and beautiful welcome from Denise and Mick with amazing planning with directing myself and our wedding party to get the best pre-journey pictures.

    The most comfortable exciting journey to our venue was thrilling, The decorations and style of Barney was encapsulating I was mesmerised. And did not want any of it to end, When we arrived our waiting guests were thrilled at Barney and he was the talk of the morning and throughout the day.

    Upon our vows finishing we were ready to journey to our 2nd venue for the reception meal.

    This is when Denise and Mick really switched up a gear and “revved” things up. Waiting for us at the foot of the main entrance staircase was Beautiful Barney with both side doors open and an awesome playlist of our best loved tunes. A display of amazing wedding regalia, bunting and the most perfect display of a stunningly presented wicker basket hamper of the tastiest sandwiches, sausage rolls, cherry tomatoes and crisps and the most delightful chilled perfectly bottle of bubbles superbly presented and poured by Mick.

    What makes the experience even more magical was the bottle of bubbles was specifically chosen for myself and partner taking into consideration our preference on flavour which was such a fantastic thoughtful gesture. More amazing attention to detail extras included a custom made playlist including all of our favourites and even songs from the theme of our Sten doo. . . The smallest yet biggest thing that stood out to me and what is my favourite touch of the day was the ice in the bucket for the bubbles “Rainbow Ice Cubes”

    What a fantastic way to congratulate and show how amazing Denise and Mick are at making anyone feel welcome and celebrated on their special day!

    Prior to arriving at our final venue Mick took us on a wonderful journey through rugby town to allow us to enjoy the scrumptious hamper snacks and beautiful bottle of bubbles. . .With the beats popping and sing alongs songs tuning along we had a wonderful magical journey even with a few waves from bystanders giving us a celebratory wave as we drove past thanks to the amazing panoramic windows on the stunning Barney.

    Denise had travelled ahead to allow for her to take the most amazing arrival pictures as we drove down the driveway, Which was such an amazing touch and showed how much this pair will go above and beyond to make sure your day captures every moment. We had a wonderful arrival drink and more photos directed by Denise and Mick through a purposely chosen spot from them knowing how to get the best angles and pictures of us and the lovely Barney.

    I could not have dreamed of a better way to have celebrated our journey on our wedding day. Denise and Mick truly know how to make your day so special, make you feel completely comfortable and at ease. With taking all the planing and execution of the journey out of your hands and elegantly guiding you along at all steps. With romantic amazing touches customised to you and your partners interests they can create the most bespoke amazing experience.

    Any couple looking for the most relaxed professional friendly hilarious love filled amazing experience need look no far, You will not be disappointed.

    Thank you so much Denise Mick you are true legends!

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Wow what can we say. Your review has made us pretty emotional. We know it was a very special day for you both and you noticed everything ❤ We do try our very best to make everyone happy and relaxed and make long lasting and fun filled memories. It was our honour to be part of your wedding to Craig and allowing us to sneak inside and watch your ceremony was such a privilege for Mick and myself.
    Thank you for putting into words what we do as we are often told we are not just transport but until you are actually sitting inside one of our campervans on your big day you may not really see the whole picture of what we do, which in itself makes each wedding day a very individual experience which we are very proud of. So thank you once again for noticing everything and we are just over the moon our Barney made your day that extra bit special. Lots of love Barney, Mick your chauffeur and me, Denise 😊 xxx

    Amazing! ⹥︯🬻

    Where do I start? I couldn’t recommend The Old Camper Company enough!!♥️ Denise is the loveliest lady, who’s communication on the run up to our wedding was second to none.
    Denise and her nephew Ben, we’re incredibly kind and just made our day extra special. They went above and beyond to meet our requirements and nothing was too much trouble.- Even driving us for a quick photoshoot before the wedding reception!
    Barney the campervan was stunning, with such beautiful details inside.
    I honestly felt like Denise and Ben were part of our family- they added the classy, quirky and fun to our wedding day. We are forever grateful. 💜🌻

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Emma thank you so much. We were so lucky to have been part of your wedding. Ben and I really felt like we had know you both forever and the day was just perfect. We laughed from the moment we met you and our time alone with you and your photographers was so special for us as we got to know you both a bit more. You both have such exciting times ahead and we just love that we were able to share part of the very first day of your married life. We wish you every happiness and looking forward to hearing about the next big adventure in your lives xx Den, Ben and Barney xxx

    Amazing experience, would highly recommend!!

    We can't recommend The Old Camper Company enough! We had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID and they were extremely accommodating. Denise and Mick were so helpful on the day of the wedding and ensured everything ran smoothly. Both of the camper vans were immaculate with extra details such as a congratulations card, bottle of fizz and a picnic in a basket for us to tuck into. I couldn’t fault them, thank you again for making it so special!!

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Thank you Becci that really is a special review. We know it was so hot on the day, but the weather and the backdrop of tipis couldn't have been more perfect for our campervans. Your wedding was a true festival wedding and we loved being able to share it with you. Denise and Mick and of course Hector and Barney the campervans xx

    Above and beyond

    My son and future daughter in law fell in love with these two wonderful old camper vans at a wedding fair. I decided to hire them as a wedding gift. Booked the date, paid my deposit and couldn’t have been happier with the service we got. Three dates further down the line thanks to COVID the big day finally arrived. The guys couldn’t have been any more accommodating if they’d tried. The number of times we had to reschedule was never an issue they helped us every step of the way. On the day every detail had been taken care of and everyone had a wonderful time. Nothing was to much trouble. If you want a truly different experience that will not disappoint then these are the go to guys.

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Liz thank you so much for your review. It really does mean a lot and we do want everything to be perfect on the day. It was a wedding that was definitely worth the wait; just full of happiness. The delays had meant that the wedding had to be postponed and for us the most noticeable difference was Izzabella - she was so little when we first met and had grown so much! Thank you again x

    Fantastic classic VW campers

    Fantastic communication, even during a challenging period of COVID-19 when our date & venue changed multiple times. Always remained happy to do whatever they could to support us on our special day. Even a road closure on the day heading to our reception venue did not stop the team who had clearly done their homework on the possible routes prior to the day. The campers are a wonderful example of classic VW campers & are lovingly maintained. You are made you feel as you were arriving in style and top your day off perfectly. Highly recommended.

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Alan thank you so much for your review. We do try and make your day perfect and even road closures won't stop us getting you to your reception! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with everyone, we really appreciate it. Kind regards Denise, Mick and Ben

    Tracey thanks so much for your lovely review. We laughed so much with you and Suzanne, you both really were a joy to be with.

    Perfect Wedding Campervans

    The Camper Company made our son and daughter in law’s wedding even more perfect. Every detail is thought through from picnic to music. They had even remembered the bride didn’t like fizz so put in a extra special bottle of wine. Denise and Mick really get to know the bride and groom. Highly recommended!

    The Old Camper Company's reply:

    Thank you so much Louise for your review. It was our absolute pleasure to be the wedding transport for Alex and Sam's wedding. It was such a great day for us. Singing along with the bridesmaids on the way back to the reception was so much fun. Thanks for allowing us to be part of your family's wedding, we felt so privileged. With love Denise, Mick and our campervans Barney and Hector x
