Thank you again for making our day so special.
Hi Kate and Jack, myself and my husband (its been nearly 3 months and I'm still not used to saying that!) wanted to say thank you again for making our day so special. Rupert and Mr Tickle were perfect and it was made even more special when I found out that my mum used to own a car just like Mr Tickle (before I was born). I know it meant a lot to my family and my dad when they saw me turn up in the car, so thank you. The flowers on the front were just brilliant. All my favourite colours, so beautifully done. Both you and Jack were fantastic, you both helped keep me calm when things got a bit manic and I am eternally grateful for the deodorant and wipes that were supplied (I was not expecting the weather to be so hot!) Good luck for the future, I hope you get to do many more events as you guys and the vehicles are amazing. Thanks again Love The Burridges (Emma and Jonno) xx

Thank you
We hired Mr Tickle for our wedding. We were extremely happy with him and his owner Kate. He is a beautiful bug and we would happily hire him again. We cannot thank Kate enough for her friendly and welcoming manner and looking after us on our special day.

Fantastic!!
We were looking for a Personal and Bespoke Transport Service for our Vintage themed Wedding and we found Bus and Bug. Kate and her team were the Best and we hired Rupert for our special day which totally made it!! If I could give more stars, I'd be giving 10/10 without a second thought.

A perfect addition to the day
Mr Tickle looked so perfect for the day with the flower garland along the bumper! It was everything I had dreamed (and pinned on Pinterest) coming to life. We felt so relaxed and the music on the way to the church helped me keep my cool! After the ceremony we were given a bottle of processeco each which added to the festivities! It was just the perfect fit for the perfect day!

What is your most memorable wedding?

The first wedding we did, it will always be special for us. The couple were just so lovely and now expecting their first child! Couldn't be happier for them!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Vintage, cute, quirky, boho, alternative

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our cars, they're part of our family. We've owned our beetle for 10 years!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always do what makes you happy! Try not to worry about what everyone else wants, or thinks!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

1) Email enquiry / Wedding Fayre 2) Booking form 3) Deposit 4) Remaining balance 4 weeks prior to weddings 5) Wedding Day!

What is the most original entrance you have given to a wedding couple?

Arriving in a camper van or beetle is pretty orginal for most!

What is your dream car and why?

If I had to choose just one, (I have so many) I would choose a 1959 Karmann Kabriolett Beetle. I'm a huge fan of early beetles and early cabriolet beetles are very rare now. They are just a cool piece of history, plus the roof comes down! What could be better?

What would be your No. 1 tip for arriving in style?

Choose a car that you love or that holds specials memories for you or your family and always arrive on time so you don't feel stressed or flustered!

What is your favourite movie car chase?

Gone in 60 seconds, where Nicholas Cage is in "Eleanor". If you know, you know!
