LoveDub Weddings - A Journey to Success

October 2011

Why not get married in a yurt marquee in the Welsh Countryside

We stumbled across Coed Hills Rural Artspace when looking for an alternative site closer to home to plant trees as part of our Eco-business ethos.  Coed Hills is situated in the glorious Vale of Glamorgan countryside on the outskirts of Cowbridge in a village called St Hilary. 
It is one of Wales’ leading centres for sustainable living and the creative arts. Served by likeminded people who all have a passion for the environment and love of nature and the outdoors.  Coed Hills aim is to become a centre of education focused on nature, sustainability and traditional woodland skills and crafts, contributing to local tourism, employment and the rural economy.

Another bargain impulse buy!!

I am not guilty of this one.  Paul had listed his Ducato Camper onto Ebay as was browsing a few classic car sites when he stumbled across a stunning part restored 1972 Karmann Beetle in Lotus white in a garage in Pwllheli North Wales.  This car was near completion, new respray, newly upholstered interior and all rubbers replaced,  all the parts to complete the job where included in the sale but, due to age and ill health, the gentleman was desperate to sell the car to a much loved home and, lucky him, we found it first!

Impulse buy

Most women have a fetish for shoe shopping or handbags and cannot leave a shop without buying the shiny shoes and matching handbag regardless of the fact that they probably do not need another pair......I, on the other hand, have rather a butch obssesion with impulse buying VW cars!!  My hubby is at the end of his tether with my obssession as we have wandered the country looking at wrecks that I have not been able to resist.  Some have been winners and scrubbed up well and sold on for a profit but most have been left on the drive of the vendor who have not been as impressed by my obssession.

Charity, Tree planting, VW Wedding Favors and driftwood table names

At the national Welsh Wedding Fayre held in the Millenium Staduim, Cardiff tommorrow 9th October, LoveDub Weddings will also be showing our range of VW related Wedding favors including chocolates and beachy themed favor sacks.  We also make natural Driftwood table signs hand burnt using pyrography in the names required with a hand tied celtic knotwork decoration.  At LoveDub Weddings we love the outdoors and try to encourage people to be as eco-friendly as possible in their choices for their Wedding.

VW Friends to the rescue

We received some unfortunate news from a work colleague in Northampton that their VW split screen had an engine fire which destroyed the amazing interior that Paul had made for them customised to their Wedding needs.  Straight away Paul was in action getting wood and templates sorted to help get their VW back on the road for a Wedding on 22nd October. 
It is one of our worst fears that the VW's will have such a devestating accident that they are off the road for any length of time as it will affect the buisiness and disappoint our couples who have booked.

Wedding Fayre preps full steam!!!

Getting really excited now and in a bit of a tiz as the Welsh Wedding Fayre at the Millenium Stadium looms ahead!!!  Frankie's turn for a clean-up today. She is having a huge overhaul today and alloys are off ready for a day of thorough cleaning until they bling......deluxe trim and all the chrome accessories are having a good clean, interior carpet is due a vax and the seats will be squeaky clean ready for the fayre on Sunday.  Tommorrow will be the turn of the Beetle and then Thursday will be The LoveDub until the fleet are so shiny they will cause mayhem on the M4 travelling down on Sunday ;) .
