Wedding Shows Vintage VW Style

Wedding Shows Vintage VW Style

As 2014 creeps past Halloween into an unseasonably warm November it seems an appropriate time to assess the wedding shows we have attended, to aid our planning for next year.

Two of them have been the Vintage Wedding Shows in Edinburgh; the Roxy in March and The Caledonian Waldorf Astoria in September.

Each bringing specialist, stylish vintage suppliers to what might have been described as ‘a happening’ back in the ’60s.

Then the two local ones, The Falkirk Wedding Show in that homage to ’60s architecture that is the Falkirk Town Hall and the far more beautiful, Callendar House Wedding Fair.

Finally the biggest, busiest extravaganza that was The Scottish Wedding Show at SECC. Three very different types of wedding show, all great fun to be at.

The shows all had something in common though; a real buzz of excitement, a feeling of love and joy and some seriously overwhelmed brides. As I invited the brides-to-be to step into Meg’s calming interior, I witnessed many creased foreheads smooth and many tensed shoulders relaxing.

” This is exactly what I want” was on many beautiful lips.

Sure Meg isn’t for everyone; she is very unique, fun and bright. Among a sea of silver and white wedding cars she stands out, as the ‘something blue’ for couples who like to be different. She can also of course be your ‘something borrowed’.

That’s precisely why she has been booked as a wedding gift from one fiance/e to another several times. Imagine the surprise on your betrothed’s face, when expecting the family car to turn up, they are met by Meg.

Realistically there are many romantic reasons why you may choose to book Meg, not least because she will be 50 in 2015 but there is also a smart, economical fact as well. She seats seven besides the chauffeur and if your venue and pick-up points aren’t too far apart, you can use her to transport both groomsmen and bridal parties. Now that’s canny!

Meg can be booked for all kinds of special occasions, more on that later. It’s also worth noting that Meg can also double up as your photobooth, should you want one. This will allow your guests to experience sitting in a beautifully restored 1965 Volkswagen Splitscreen Microbus as well. Sharing the joy- just the way we like it!

Next week we will be without a camper but taking bookings inside The Edinburgh Corn Exchange Wedding Fair.
