We are pleased to say that Bruce the VW camper van is nearly complete! We can’t wait for his custom made interior from Bromsgrove Auto Trimmers to be fitted in and used by many brides and grooms.
Please check back soon as we will be adding new pictures once he is completely finished!
Bruce has surfaced from the murky depths of his makeover, ready to compliment his future brides and grooms on their big day. More pictures of the finished Bruce coming very soon!
On the 28th June we went to the Mobilty Roadshow in Telford. We met a lot of inspiring people who liked our idea of a wheelchair accessible VW campervan. We made some excellent contacts, who we hope to work with in the future.
Last weekend Great White Occasions went along to Camper Jam in Weston Park in Shropshire. We had a great time looking at all the stalls and people’s campers, getting inspiration for all you lucky people who will get to ride in Bruce the campervan in the near future!
We have been busy finding the perfect accessories for Bruce our VW camper van, and managed to find this vintage blue and white picnic hamper at the Castlefield market in Manchester.
We think it will be perfect for holding some chilled champagne (or beers!) on a wedding day, or any other special occasion!
Our lovely van Bruce is currently at the salon getting a fancy new paint job. We can’t wait to see how he looks! Rest assured, we’ll be sure to post lots of photos of him in all his finery when he returns.
We decided we would try and do some networking and introduce ourselves to some other people in the wedding industry by visiting one of the biggest wedding shows in the North West.
We made our own temporary business cards with our contact details on, so that we would have something to hand out to people who seemed interested in our idea.
We were able to catch up with Mark R Williamson, who was the photographer at our wedding in March 2010, which was lovely as we hadnt really seen him since then!
We also met the lovely Rachael and Jan from Ice Cream Dub and were able to sample some of their lovely ice cream that they serve from Sassy, their beautiful split screen camper van!
It was a great afternoon and it was nice to speak to some people from the North West and hopefully we will keep in touch with some and possibly work with them in the future!
This is our first blog post and we just wanted to let people know where we are up to with things! We will hopefully be updating the blog regularly with things we have been doing and how the renovations are going for Bruce the camper van.
Bruce is currently with Lee at Manflowers Volkswagen Restoration in Evesham, Worstershire, and he is being renovated from the inside out, with new paintwork, seats and the wheelchair adaptations. We are hoping everything will be done by March and we cant wait to take Bruce for a spin!
The website is currently being designed by Ian from www.swashandfold.com and we cant wait to see what the finished site will look like!
We are also working with a local design company to design a logo (very local, as their base is just around the corner from us!). Examples of their previous work is on their website at www.wearelife.co.uk and we are looking forward to meeting with Oisin this weekend to try and complete this.
We have a twitter account (www.twitter.com/GW_Occasions) and a facebook page (www.facebook.com/greatwhiteoccasions) and it has been lovely to connect with so many people who feel that our idea is a good one!
Please check back soon for further updates on how things are progressing!
