Vintage Camper Booths and their 3 very cool VW Campervans, Bertie, Lottie and Rosie, are very experienced when it comes to festival style weddings and events and you can completely see why. The VW Camper over the last 5 decades has become a bit of a festival icon so booking one for your wedding, in some shape or form, makes complete sense for couples hoping to capture that festival vibe. However, Vintage Camper Booths aren’t just offering an ordinary selection of campers for hire, oh no! What they are offering is something a bit different. Something that will certainly bring a lot of smiles (and sparkle) to you and your guests.
As well as offering very cool and unique photo booths as wedding entertainment for you and your guests, their 3 versatile campers can also transform into a mobile bar, a DJ booth, a glitter bar and a sweetie bar! Vintage Camper Booths have many talents and really do offer the full package when it comes to entertainment. If you really want to bring the festival party to your wedding then why not book their DJ Booth or Glitter Booth? Both of these would work so well at a festival wedding and would just make your party that extra bit unique.
As we do with all of our Festival Wedding Preferred Suppliers, we asked Vintage Camper Booths a few questions about their 3 campers, what they can offer and the service you can expect if you were to book one.
Tell us a little bit about yourselves?
We are a family run business and we all share a love of VW Campervans, live music, festivals, impromptu camping trips and being outdoors with nature.
If you had the chance to go to any music festival, which one would it be and why?
Boardmasters Festival holds a special place in our heart and as you can imagine our VW Campervan fits right in with the whole laid back surf vibe. Our Campervan Photo Booth was a real hit there amongst festival-goers and we do hope to return again one day. We are actually going to a few different festivals this year so people can enjoy our Quirky VW Photo Booth and we cannot wait. “Watch this space!”
What made you decide to start Vintage Camper Booths?
Some of the team are Event Managers with nearly 20 years of experience organising Events, Parties and such like. We already owned a VW Campervan (Bertie), which we took to festivals and the odd camping trip but were not using it much more than that. We were chatting one summer evening at a BBQ a few years back with fellow Event Managers about how popular Photo Booths were becoming and came up with the idea of combining the two so that we can enjoy using our Campervan more and make the most of it! We haven’t looked back since.
You have three beautiful VW camper booths, Bertie, Lottie and Rosie. Can you tell us more about them and what they can offer?
Bertie was the first member of the VW Family. He was originally black and we found him on a farm just outside Bath looking very sorry for himself. My father lovingly restored him and he is now a real hit with any Vintage Theme Wedding or Event thanks to his dreamy pistachio green and cream colours. In addition to a Unique VW Photo Booth he also rocks a very cute Vintage Sweetie Booth or Mini Drinks bar at the back, which is a huge hit at weddings as a combined package. Brides have even cut and served their wedding cake from the back!
Then along came Rosie, which my father also restored from it’s blue rusty state, where she had been left all alone in a barn for years (normally the case). She now has striking burgundy and beige colours and has offered many Unique VW Campervan Experiences over the last few years such as Glitter Booths, Sweetie Booths and of course her Unique Built in Photo Booth. She was the one lucky enough to go to Boardmasters and entertain festival-goers ! She also went to Latitude Festival with Virgin Radio as a Broadcasting Booth. Many famous music artists were interviewed by Radio DJ’ s and also performed their latest song infront of her. THAT WAS FUN!
Lottie is our latest addition. She was abandoned and neglected and left to rot near our local beach. She was becoming more and more mouldy and rusty so we saved her! She is a beautiful mix of Vintage and Modern with a classic creamy exterior, luscious lipstick red interior and gold tinted windows! She is very popular not just at Weddings & Parties but also Corporate & Promotional Events due to her versatility!
Lottie has not been hired as a DJ Booth yet but with her built in shelving and pop up roof she would make one pretty cool DJ Booth at a music festival or event, don’t you think?
We can see that Lottie can also be hired as a Mobile Bar, Glitter Booth and DJ Booth. Can you explain how this works and what’s provided?
She certainly can. We wanted to introduce some more Unique Experiences for 2018 so we adapted her so that she can offer a ‘Dry Hire’ Bar. For example the customer provides the bubbly or wine and we provide the rest. Our bar staff serve welcome drinks such as Champagne or Prosecco with the option for guests to ‘pimp their drink’ with fresh juices. Then the roof is lowered and bar hatch closed and she is transformed into a Photo Booth to entertain the guests throughout the evening!!!
The same applies for anyone wanting to add sparkle to their wedding or event, whereby we operate Lottie as a Glitter Booth – only one of her kinds as far as we know – and again she can be enjoyed in the evening as a Photo Booth.

If our couples were to book you for their wedding, what sort of service can they expect?
We offer a friendly and personable service from the first point of contact, offering advice and plenty of information to help our customers make a decision. We are always available to speak to once the booking has been placed, up until about a month before when we then contact the customer to discuss final requirements or to answer any outstanding questions they may have. We always turn up to any event about 30-45 minutes before to set up and are never in the way! Then for the fun part..…..
Are your camper booths limited to certain types of venues or can they be used anywhere?
We can basically park anywhere a venue lets us or where we can fit! All we require access to is 1 x 13 amp plug socket (we have a generator converter for outdoor weddings.)
What are some of your favourite memories and experiences from previous weddings?
There are too many great memories to share to be honest. Every wedding has been so different. Naturally we love a Festival Themed Outdoor Wedding as there is so much flexibility and opportunity for creativity when working with a blank canvas.
At the end of the day we just love seeing the Bride & Groom come into the Campervan in the evening looking loved up, happy and most importantly relaxed! Our VW Photo Booth marks the start of the evening fun where they can finally let their hair down and enjoy the rest of the wedding now that all the formal bits are over!
Oh yes – being at a wedding where the couple met on Tinder was pretty cool. Their head table was called the ‘Tinder Table’.
You and your team were so professional, Rosie (the camper van) was immaculate, the props were great fun, all our guests really got involved and had loads of pictures taken. As a result we now have an amazing guest book we can treasure for life. The whole process of dealing with you guys was so easy…. Simply book it and you took care of all the rest! A MASSIVE MASSIVE THANK YOU from the both of us!
Thank you so much for letting us have Bertie for our Wedding. He looked amazing on such a sunny day and we really appreciate all the special touches on the inside. Our guests loved the vw photobooth, it was a real highlight of the day. You guys were fantastic with helping us & we have recommended you to lots of people!
A huge thank you from Mr and Mrs T and guests to Bertie and his entourage! After deliberating whether or not to have a photo booth at all at our wedding, we found Bertie and decided to go for it! He was FABULOUS! Aside from looking stunning, he produced SO much fun, hilarity and memories for ever! Surpassed all of our expectations! Thank you Naomi for managing the whole thing on the day-just awesome!
Finally, what’s your life quote/motto at Vintage Camper Booths?
Quite simply – Live, Laugh, Love… oh and always find a reason to smile
