Sussex Love Bug was started by Kelly Wickson when she was made redundant from her job working for Amex. She took the opportunity to reinvent herself and start her own business, so Belle the VW Beetle was given a new lease of life transporting couples on their wedding day. If you are going to hire a vintage car to get you to the wedding on time, this is the company for you!
Belle the 40 year old white VW Beetle has had a makeover recently and been given a beautiful olive and white interior as well as all her chrome being buffed and a new luggage rack being fitted. She makes a stunning addition to your vintage wedding day and comes complete with varying packages to choose from including Belle, which is the standard package, consisting of mineral water for the journey and ribbons adorning the car in your wedding colours. Bubbles package is the same as Belle plus 2 mini bottles of bubbly and the ultimate package is Bravo which includes Bubbles plus photo’s of you and your bridal party with Belle at the pick up point and all images will be presented to you on disc. As well as the ribbons decorating Belle they also have a rather fabulous vintage suitcase strapped to the back painted with a ‘Just Married’ sign for after the ceremony!
Belle will be chauffeur driven by either Kelly or her husband Joss (who is the creative web developer part of their team) and they will dress very dapper for your special day, even matching your colour scheme if requested/possible! Covering the areas of East and West Sussex there is a simple pricing plan on their website so you can budget them into your day easily. If you are unsure whether Belle is the one for you, take advantage of visiting them and they will take you for a trial spin and I’m sure you will fall for her!
This is not the only string to Kelly’s bow as she now also works at Brighton and Hove Council as an events organiser where Belles Vintage Wedding Fair was born and which Kelly arranges. The next fair is on September 9th so make sure to add it to your diary…
It is now not the only fair that Kelly organises! She decided to start a wedding fair of her own, Belles Bridal Bazaar, which will be on October 20th at Brighton Unitarian Church, it won’t have the same full on vintage feel of the other but definitely worth having a day out there!
