4. How would it work if someone hired you for their wedding? What happens if it rains?
Libby-Loo is hired for 3 hours and after that the possibilities are endless, we can provide your guests just with drinks, we can supply drinks and cakes, crepes, afternoon tea with clotted cream and jam, cookies whatever is preferred and we will work with you to ensure your ideal day is brought to life. When Libby-Loo rides up to your wedding party she really is a sight to behold, she will be a great talking point for your guests and will provide some fantastic photo opportunities. Fear not if it rains, we will park right next to your venue, we have a large canopy over both of our serving hatches keeping your guests dry whilst they choose their selections.

6. What do you love the most about being involved in the wonderful world of weddings?
Being a part of a couple’s special day is a huge privilege, experiencing the excitement and anticipation as they make their plans and then watching them all come to fruition is a wonderful experience.
7. Finally, what’s the most popular choice of cake?!
Now this is difficult to answer, in the spring a classic Victoria sponge seems a popular choice, in the summer months a Lemon cake no wait…… a Lemon and Raspberry cake always goes down a treat. In the autumn Apple and Walnut hits the spot and in the winter a Gingerbread never fails to impress. Having said that I’ve yet to meet anyone that doesn’t love out Prosecco and Strawberry cake!
