Introducing….Dolly (the vintage ice cream van)
A brand new member of our directory, Dolly the vintage ice cream is super cool. Not only would you be able to sample tasty ice cream on your wedding day, the ‘look’ of Dolly would be the talking point of all your guests. She is so pretty!
So, over to Charlotte to tell you a little bit more about her company and the quirky Dolly.
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Charlotte Gifford and I am the (extremely) proud owner of Dolly, a vintage ice cream van.
What do you feel makes your service stand out from the crowd?
A vintage ice cream van adds something really special to any wedding. Dolly not only provides a fun focal point ( as well as gorgeous ice cream of course) but she makes everyone smile. Guests love to either see a classic ice cream van for the very first time, or they are delighted to be reminded of their own childhoods running after the ice cream van in their street! What’s extra special about Dolly is that she is completely original. She’s been loved and looked after all her life and luckily her blue exterior and red interior suits her new life as a vintage van perfectly.
What are your predictions of trends in your industry for 2014?
I think the trend for individuality and personalised weddings will continue to grow. This means couples want to personally select each aspect of their big day, rather than booking all inclusive packages. So although Dolly could be hired as part of the catering, she’s much more than that. She sits perfectly along side bouncy castles, outdoor pop up bars, vintage caravans and glamping weddings. All of these fun, outdoor, hand selected elements which make up the perfect outdoors, festival or vintage style wedding, are set for big things next year.
Finally, what do you love the most about being involved in the wonderful world of weddings?
I love how there are so many options available and how the smallest of details can make the biggest difference. However the best part of working with brides and grooms is simply that I get be involved in, and contribute to, the happiest day of their lives.
So, what are you waiting for, get in touch with Dolly and add that special touch to your wedding day!
