Introducing Wee Betty ~ The Vintage Caravan & Le Petit Gateau
If you’re looking for something a little bit different for your wedding day, something that’s a real talking point with your guests and a great prop for your photos… Then meet ‘Betty‘ the cake serving vintage caravan…
Over to Helen and Louise to tell you more…
“Let me introduce you to ‘Betty’ our absolutely adorable cutest of caravans! She was eagerly purchased by us (two sisters Helen and Louise) in 2014 as an addition to our professional cake baking business Le Petit Gateau, based in Chesterfield on the edge of the beautiful peak district.
We wanted to create something unique, and merge our passion for baking with our quirky nostalgic love of caravans, a direct result of lots of wonderful memories of childhood family holidays on the Great British coast where the simple things in life family, friends and fun were all that mattered.
‘Betty‘ is a 1972 vintage caravan, she has been renovated to a high standard using pastel shades to compliment any wedding colour scheme, and is available to hire along with a range of quality accessories including props, garden games and a Polaroid camera, to enable you to capture all the excitement as it happens!
Or alternatively why not incorporate beautiful ‘Betty‘ into your wedding celebration as a ‘favour shop’, where your guests can pop inside to choose their gift from you. We will happily fill her full of your chosen present, all displayed to perfection, sweets, cupcakes or jars full of your favourite preserves (all baked by us if you wish!) or whatever your heart desires.
Le Petit Gateau is our bespoke cake design company offering beautiful and delicious home-made wedding and celebration cakes, where a friendly service awaits. We take great pride in our work, and are passionate about producing work of the highest levels, to create the perfect centrepiece for you day.
We truly think our versatility, our relationship as sisters and our belief that weddings should be all about enjoying yourselves with your loved ones allows us to offer something different. We want to capture that childlike feeling of fun (we regularly reminisce about) and ensure its present during your special day. How we do that is left entirely to the bride and groom.
So whether playing garden games and taking Polaroid pictures of the rivalry, having your very own retro caravan sweet shop complete with your old childhood favourites (pear drops, cola cubes etc.) or having an unusual themed wedding cake sounds like the perfect addition to your wedding we’d be happy to help.
We want our prospective couples to dare to be different and have the confidence to try something new. Our services and ‘Betty’ are so adaptable we’re certain we can help make any wedding that little bit more personal.”
