Gecko the Lewes VW Campervan - "Something old, restored like new, borrowed by you, in Neptune blue." Gecko is a classic 1972 VW T2 Dormobile Campervan which has been beautifully restored to a high standard and is available to hire for your special day in Lewes.
Our Lewes VW wedding campervan will be dressed in a choice of ribbons and bows to coordinate with your own wedding colour scheme. With a complimentary bottle of bubbly on board we offer to whisk the bride and groom away after the ceremony for a relaxing champagne drive which includes a short stop at a local beauty spot in Lewes where you can enjoy some quality alone time before the reception and celebrations begin. Why not invite your wedding photographer along to capture some intimate moments.
Our packages include up to 4 hours with our chauffeured wedding VW Campervan and in that time we will be at your disposal especially for those all-important wedding photographs. We can also offer an additional 2nd ceremony trip for the wedding entourage.
You can be assured that not only our Lewes wedding campervan will arrive gleaming and dressed in ribbons and bows, also that our chauffeur will be in a smart suit and tie. If your wedding is a somewhat more casual and less formal affair then you can request that our chauffeur dresses appropriate to your wedding style.
Our wedding VW Campervan also has a CD radio with an iPod and USB dock so that you can play the music of your choice whilst on route to your ceremony and reception in Lewes.
Our 4 hour chauffeured wedding VW Campervan hire package includes ribbons and bows in the colours of your choice, a complimentary bottle of bubbly on board, a champagne drive and a photo opportunity near to your Lewes venue.
Our 2 hour chauffeured wedding VW Campervan hire package includes, ribbons and bows in the colours of your choice and photo opportunities at your Lewes wedding venue.
We can offer a 2nd 'local' ceremony trip in the event that the wedding entourage cannot be chauffeured in one trip, this will need to be an approximate 10 mile round trip from collection address to the Lewes ceremony venue.
Additional hours of hire (or part thereof) can be requested if you require us to stay at your Lewes venue for further photo opportunities. We would prefer this to be requested at the time of booking however arrangements can be made on the day subject to availability.

We can take bookings outside of this travel distance but an extra mileage surcharge will be applicable. (This surcharge will be based upon extra mileage 'beyond and back to' our inclusive 30 mile perimeter)

Gecko is a classic right hand drive 1972 VW T2 Dormobile Campervan with a 1600 air cooled unleaded petrol engine. Found on a farm in 2013 the campervan was in need of some love and tender care. Gecko the campervan was transported to a professional restorer and over an 18 month period was meticulously restored. This included a complete engine rebuild, a brand new interior and a full body re-spray in the original colour of Neptune Blue. Gecko is now a beautiful and classic wedding Campervan which can be hired for your Lewes wedding. Keep up to date with Gecko's story on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
