Neil and Charlotte get engaged in Vintage VW campervan Betty
This must be one of the most thrilling campervan hires we have had as customer Neil Phillips proposed to his girlfriend Charlotte during their weekend away in Norfolk.
Lots of people hire our vans for weddings. They present the ideal transport for the bride to arrive at the wedding venue and then the perfect backdrop for the photos after the ceremony.
On this occasion campervan Betty proved to be the vehicle of choice for Neil to propose to Charlotte and she said yes :) yay :))
We asked Neil if he had some pics we could use and a quote and he dutifully obliged with “We just had the perfect weekend touring Norfolk in gorgeous Betty the camper. The highlight was getting engaged over breakfast in bed !”
The beauty of this is that you just have to lean forward to the stove to boil the kettle and can then both sit back enjoying the tea or coffee (over a proposal of marriage). We assume here that nobody spilt their drink when the answer came back as yes.
If you are planning on popping the question to your beloved we can think of no better place than in one of our vintage VW campervans. You can then follow up by hiring the same van for the wedding. How cool is that?
Neil and Charlotte took Betty to beautifully romantic Norfolk but you don’t have to go that far to get engaged. After all Lincolnshire has Skegness, or Mablethorpe or Sutton on Sea (more marriage proposal venues are available. “Will you marry me” after consuming fish chips and mushy peas sounds perfect. Doesn’t it? ;) Accompanied of course by a bottle of champagne and a go around the fairground.
Thanks to Neil for the amazingly cool pics. We with both you and Charlotte a long and happy marriage.
Don’t come knocking when the camper van’s rocking ;)
