When it comes to a relaxed outdoor wedding with a retro twist, or perhaps a super-stylish soiree with an element of surprise, The Little Caravan (TLC) is sure to be a welcome and memorable addition to your chosen venue.
A brilliant boutique bar housed in a caravan, it can be transported anywhere and parked up to keep the drinks flowing throughout the occasion. You provide the refreshments and let Tallie Downey and her team from The Little Caravan keep your guests happy.
It’s a perfect little guest that’ll make a big impact on your special day.
What type of wedding is The Little Caravan best suited for?
Tallie: The Little Caravan (TLC) is best suited to a wedding where there is no formal bar service or facilities. The best thing about TLC is we can rock up to any location and you have an instant bar. Weddings have ranged from low-key to formal, do-it-yourself to venue-based. We have been perched on cliff edges, sandy beaches and even inside a rustic old barn.
What makes you stand apart from your competition?
We had a very clear vision when it came to designing and building The Little Caravan, going to great lengths to ensure she was not only gorgeous on the inside but the outside too. TLC had to be aesthetically beautiful, and at the same time needed to be clean and simple in design so she could slot in perfectly to any wedding.
What kinds of refreshments do you serve?
We are flexible and happy to meet any client’s needs. We have served cocktails and punch to top-shelf, and of course your usual beer and wine. Weddings can be stressful so we like to take away as much stress as possible. You provide the booze and we’ll take care of the rest - from our selection of high quality glassware (no need to hire), props for styling through to a full bar service with two staff, not to mention friendly banter and smiles throughout the day and night.
What’s your most enjoyable moment on the job?
We get to meet some pretty cool people and to be a part of their special day is incredible, not to mention swooning over all the stunning weddings and locations we get to visit. My all-time favourite moment so far was hearing a bride and groom gush over TLC and the service we provided, thanking us for an amazing stress-free night. That’s when I know it’s a job well done.
Who is in your team, and what makes them great at their job?
My delightful husband and my partner in crime. I love working with him he is Mr Cool, Calm and Collected. He’s a people person and will chat to anyone about anything, which creates a great vibe at the bar. We also have personality-plus part-time bar staff on our small team.
