So, Valentines day came and went in a flash, your loved one made a proposal of marriage to you and you said, ‘YES’!
Congratulations to you both!
But what next?!
You are probably looking now at planning the big day and have SO much to look forward to.
Of course, you will be looking to book your wedding ceremony and venue to hold the happy celebrations and then you can look for other wedding suppliers for the BIG day!
You will be looking for your wedding dress, suits and outfits for all the bridesmaids and groomsmen, ideas for the venue and table decorations, chair covers, wedding cake, flowers and all the other trimmings for the day.
But, how are you going to get there?
There are quite a few wedding vehicle companies to choose from with vehicles like the Bentley, Rolls Royce, Daimler or Austin. Or, you could be different and have a beautiful classic VW Campervan to transport you and your wedding party.
So, look no further than Somerset Wedding Campervans!
We have 2 VW campervans which have been purposely converted for weddings.
Our Classic VW Campervans
Lois is a 1967, 13 window deluxe split screen and is Kansas beige and pastel white.
She is the iconic VW campervan and has proven to be really popular with our wedding couples.
Lily is a 1970 early bay in pastel white and is the forerunner to the Splitscreen.
Both vans have the same seating and champagne arrangement and can seat 5-6 passengers, depending on age/adults/children.
We pride ourselves on offering a friendly, reliable and professional service to our wedding couples and love to share our love of the VW campervan with others.

We thought it would be a nice touch to bring back the old tradition of tying cans to the back of a wedding car!
So, when you book your wedding transport with Somerset Wedding Campervans, you will be offered to have cans trailed behind your Classic VW campervan to surprise your wedding guests!
Over the winter, we have been collecting tin cans and we will offer this old tradition to our wedding couples, at no extra cost, when they book their wedding transport in Somerset with us.
We thought it would be a bit of fun!!
So, why do people tie cans to the back of the married couple’s car?
In 2011 when Prince William drove Kate down the Mall in their car, it had the license plate changed to read ‘JU5T WED’, with balloons and tin cans streaming from the back. The practice of tying on cans is thought to date back as far as Egyptian times.
Back then women were still the property of their fathers, and when a man and woman wed it was customary for the father to hand his new son-in-law a pair of his daughter’s sandals.
This symbolised she now belonged to him.
The significance of shoes continued over the centuries. As the bride and groom left in their carriage, wedding guests would throw their shoes at them because it was considered good luck if you hit the vehicle. This tradition evolved to shoes being tied to the back of the car and then eventually changed to tin cans.
So, if you are looking for wedding transport in Somerset for your special day and want to have a bit of fun, contact Somerset Wedding Campervans to see if we have your wedding day available!

Somerset Wedding Campervans proves to be popular wedding transport in Somerset for Brides and Grooms.
Our wedding transport service in Somerset has proved to be a great hit with brides, grooms and their wedding guests. These classic VW wedding campervans have been converted to seat 5 to 7 passengers, depending on whether they are adults or children making it a fun way for the wedding party to arrive at their wedding ceremony.
Somerset Wedding Campervans are almost fully booked for this year with only a few available dates and we are already becoming booked up for 2019 and 2020. So, if you are still looking for your ideal wedding transport and want something just that little bit different, have a look at our lovely wedding campervans here.
What makes us different from other wedding vehicle companies?
We offer a personal, friendly service, are always contactable and willing to be as accommodating as we possibly can. Most wedding couples want us to dress our wedding vans with bows, ribbons and flowers in colours to match their theme. Some want us to dress our vehicles in a particular theme such as, Halloween, Magic, Harry Potter or something similar. We are always happy to help as much as we can.
Occasionally, we are asked if we can take dogs too! We know how important peoples four legged friends are, we have one ourselves, so we are very happy for well-behaved dogs to come along for the ride. Of course, we do insist they sit on the floor and definitely not on the seats!!
So, if you are looking for a wedding vehicle that is just that little bit different from the run of the mill wedding car, look no further!

The wedding fair season is now over for Somerset Wedding Campervans and we begin the year with our first wedding on 29th April!
This wedding fair season was a very busy time for us where we attended around 12 wedding shows at venues such as, Holbrook House, Bath and West Showground and The Haynes Motor Museum, to name a few.
The wedding coordinators at Holbrook House in Wincanton have been a great support to Somerset Wedding Campervans since we began last year. Jemma and Sian have admired our wedding campervans and seen the progression of Lily’s refurbishment from the beginning.
Last year the photo shoot for our website took place at Holbrook House and we have attended some really lovely wedding showcases there, over the past few months.
Holbrook House is a lovely venue to hold your wedding because it can accommodate small or large wedding parties. The grounds are stunning and the staff are friendly and always very willing to make everything as special as possible for their guests.
So we are now busy preparing Lily and Enola, our classic VW wedding campervans in Somerset for the coming wedding season. Our very excited engaged couples are busy preparing for their special day and we are looking forward to helping them have a great time!
Our part is to make sure the bridal party reach their ceremony and wedding venue safely and on time, as without reliable transport, things might be a little different!
Of course, with our classic wedding vehicles being manufactured the 1970’s, it is really important to make sure they are well prepared to cope with all sorts of different journeys and undulating roads.
In fact, we are off to a mechanical training course in the coming days so that, IF there are any problems, we know how to rectify them as quickly as possible to get the Bride to the church on time!
We have taken a lot of bookings over the past few months so only have a limited number of free Friday and Saturdays for 2017! So, if you are looking to book your wedding transport in Somerset for this year, please get in touch as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
We look forward to hearing from you and helping you enjoy your wedding day.
‘Making your day special!’
2017 Wedding Fair season for Somerset Wedding Campervans!
So, the New Year’s wedding fair season is upon us and couples planning their wedding will be looking for ideas and wanting something different for their special day.
Whilst our Wedding Campervans may be tucked away for the winter, they will be coming out for a few wedding shows over the next 3 months.
The first event was on Sunday 15th January 2017 at the Cheese and Grain in Frome. Our Somerset Wedding Campervans created a lot of interest, as usual, and a few couples booked us for this year and 2018.
At each wedding fair Lily and Enola are on show for engaged couples to get into the wedding spirit and be inspired for transport on their wedding day.
What is different about our Classic VW Wedding campervans is the seating capacity. Lily can hold 5-6 passengers and Enola seats 4-5 passengers. Since there are very few wedding vehicles capable of seating so many passengers, this makes it a much more economical choice for wedding transport in Somerset.
We aim to help make your wedding day go smoothly and do our best to accommodate any requirements. After all, a wedding day should be remembered for all the right reasons and we want to help the happy couple and wedding guests feel special.
For another chance to see our Somerset Wedding Campervans, come along to our next wedding show of the year at the Bath & West showground on Sunday 22nd January 2017.
As usual, our VW campervans will be on show and we will have a stand inside the wedding event where you can ask any questions you like and reserve us for your wedding date.
See you there!
Or feel free to book on line or call us on 07341 861861

‘Making your day special’
Somerset Wedding Campervans have had a very busy few weeks!
We offer a professional and reliable wedding campervan service for weddings and special occasions and this is our story so far.
Our quest to create a vehicle suitable for any occasion started at the beginning of 2016. Lily was imported from USA and has undergone a number of improvements and alterations to create a stunning wedding vehicle. Lily has been cleaned from top to bottom and is now a real head turner. Click here to see how she looks now.
At the beginning of July we collected Lily from Madmatz in Kettering where Mark and Odette had just completed her interior fittings. Her complete interior has been redesigned and has been transformed from this….
We’re sure you will agree, this is an amazing transformation and we are so pleased with the way, Lily, our Somerset Wedding Campervan looks!
We would like to say thank you to a few people;
Brookside VW Aircooled in Birmingham for finding Lily and carrying out various repairs and her new coat of paint.
Madmatz in Kettering for her lovely new interior.
Sharon from Cooper Floral Design in Somerset for supplying a beautiful silk flower arrangement.
Rob Thompson Joinery in Somerton for the champagne cabinet wood work.
Gemma and Sian from Holbrook House in Wincanton for providing our photo shoot venue. A beautiful wedding venue!
Marc from Marc Le Galle wedding photography for taking some lovely photographs of Lily.
Jo from Haydn Alarms for kindly giving us heat detectors for Lily and Enola.
H & M motors of Somerton for undertaking some general repairs on Lily.
Last but not least Alan from Hedgehog Digital for designing this fantastic website for us.
It is because of the hard work and generosity of these people that our beautiful Lily is now a real head turner and Somerset Wedding Campervans Somerton is becoming a real success!
