We have had a love for classic VW campers for many years. After we dressed our 1975 camper ‘Ernie’ up in ribbons for a family wedding four years ago where he attracted so much attention and so many smiles, we decided to go look at offering these iconic vehicles as wedding transport.
Dorset Dubhire was born in May 2010 after the purchase of our beloved 1960 baby blue and ivory split screen ‘Lulu’. We had her interior designed specifically for wedding hire, with oak units, facing seats for that important communal feel and ivory upholstery. Seating six adults, there is plenty of room for the largest bridal gown, for the groom and his groomsmen or for bridesmaids. Her first outing was to our local VW show, Vdub at the Pub in Wimborne and she was an instant hit, winning best split screen. She has won a number of trophies since!
We have since undertaken weddings in many fantastic locations, meeting some really wonderful couples and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. With a very busy year ahead of us in 2012, we have just acquired another wedding hire camper, Lottie, a freshly restored 1970 bay window bus in gleaming lotus white. She will be available for weddings from May 2012 and she will also benefit from a beautiful, custom made oak interior.
Our aim is to ensure that our couples have a special and memorable experience. We dress the vehicles with ribbons, flower garlands or vintage style bunting, offer a champagne hamper, play a couple’s favourite music during the journey and liaise with them throughout the planning stages of their wedding to make sure everything is exactly as they would like it to be on the day.
We are very much looking forward to meeting couples at The Dorset Vintage Wedding Fair and introducing them to Lulu and our newest addition, Lottie!
