Full Description
Dorset Dubhire offer a superb selection of beautiful classic VW wedding vehicles from the 1960s and 1970s. Our splitscreen camper Lulu is the earliest VW camper available for wedding hire in the Dorset area. We are passionate about what we do and our vehicles really are part of the family. Our 3 classic campervans Lulu, Lillie and Lucy each seat up to 6 passengers so are perfect for your bridal party or for the groom and his groomsmen. Painted in pale pastel or neutral tones with bespoke cream and oak interiors our campers fit with all colour schemes and we can guarantee they will turn heads, get your guests talking and look fantastic in your all important wedding photographs! We are also pleased to be able to offer our 1965 Beetle for wedding hire. Lilah is a stunning example of a classic VW Beetle and has featured in Volksworld magazine and won many trophies over the years. A very popular addition, Lilah is perfect for the bride and her travelling companion, smaller bridal or grooms' parties and for the bride and groom to travel to their reception in. We offer a full chauffeur driven service and pride ourselves on the highest levels of customer care. Vehicles are dressed to fit in with your wedding theme-ribbons, bunting and flower garlands and our 'just married' signs are all included in our price and our chauffeurs will ensure your every need is attended to from assisting with button holes to pouring your first glass of champagne as a married couple. We are extremely proud to have achieved the title of 'best wedding transport in Dorset' at The Dorset Wedding Supplier Awards for the last seven years and 'wedding transport of the year' for whole of the South West at The Wedding Industry Awards for the last four years. Owner/operator Catherine now sits on the judging panel at The Wedding Industry Awards. We would love to chat about your plans for your special day with you and to arrange a time for you to come and view our VW beauties!

Outstanding customer service
I hired Dorset Dubhire for my own wedding back in 2013. I couldn’t have been happier with the service provided and since becoming a wedding planner myself, have added Dorset Dubhire to my recommended supplier list. They offer a highly personalised service and maintain their classic vehicles to a very high standard. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Dorset Dubhire to anyone!

The staff were so polite, early, made sure we were hidden out of sight of any guests, the cars were comfortable, the journey was smooth. They even got photos of us all which were lovely. Really enjoyed the cars and staff! Thankyou for getting me to my venue on time!

I cannot thank Dorset Dubhire enough for the contribution they made to exceeding all expectations of our wedding day. Their website was inviting and they were friendly but polite and professional, with prompt, informed and informative responses to all our queries and questions before the big day. On the day our chosen transport arrived in plenty of time with the driver continuing the excellent service already received. Everyone loved it! Thank you Dorset Dubhire.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Work with your transport supplier in advance to ensure you have an itinerary that will work well for you on your day-liaising with your make up/hair artist, photographer and venue. We undertake a trial run for every wedding so always advise on timings and discuss with you before the big day. We're also very happy to chat things over with your other suppliers. Once your timings have been decided upon and everything is organised you can relax and make the most of every minute with your friends and family!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Professional, approachable, knowledgeable, experienced, caring

What about your business are you most proud of?

Viewings are encouraged. If a couple are happy with the vehicles our booking form and terms are sent across to them so that they can ensure they're 100% happy with everything before booking. No monies are requested prior to return of the booking form and terms. Once this is received an invoice is sent to the couple. During the lead up to the wedding Catherine is always available to answer questions and to offer advice. Two weeks before the wedding is due to take place Catherine will get in touch to confirm all details for the day. Decorations will then be ordered and a 'dry run' undertaken. Catherine will then liaise with the couple about timings so that they're entirely happy with everything before the big day!

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

So many but we particularly love it when a couples' pet is involved. We're big dog lovers and like nothing better than having a much loved family companion involved in a wedding.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

When our splitscreen carrying the bride and her party was accompanied by dozens of bikers to the venue. It really turned heads and made for some incredible photos!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Make sure you do your research. You really want to ensure you're employing trusted, professional companies to be a part of your very special day. Websites, social media and genuine client testimonials are so important and so is making sure you get on well with your suppliers and that you feel comfortable with them. When booking vehicles it's always wise to view the vehicle before making a decision and make sure the company you're booking with offer you a contract that you're happy with before putting down a deposit with them. View any vehicles you're considering to make sure they look as good 'in the flesh' as in pictures and to see if they offer enough space for your party and your dress. Ease of access is also important-will you be able to get in and out easily and elegantly on your wedding day whilst wearing your wedding dress, veil etc.

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

We're lucky enough to own our dream cars! What's not to like about classic Volkswagens! We've owned VW classics for the last 16 years and are passionate about them-their sound, their smell, the way they make everyone smile no matter what age they are as they drive past. Maintaining them is a real labour of love but it's all part of the fun. We love being able to share our passion with so many happy couples and their guests. It's a huge privilege and makes the hard work worthwhile!

What is your dream car and why?

Every wedding is memorable! The fantastic thing about working in the wedding industry is that we get to work with so many different couples who who all put their own personalities into their wedding days. This makes it a very special job, makes every day interesting and keeps us on our toes!

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

The dedication of the whole team and for being at the forefront of popularising the classic VW as a wedding vehicle.
