Wow......what a crazy few days we have had here at LoveDub Weddings base..November and December are always very quiet regarding bookings and enquiries due to the Christmas period but January has been so busy so far!!!
New bookings for the VW's are flying in and dates are now becoming so scarce for the 2012 season. Sid our new VW camper is proving popular and we are now starting to fill his diary.
We have been asked to do two magazine features, one in an online Bridal Magazine, The Wedding Secret, and the other a VW aircooled online magazine, Air Monkeys. The Wedding Fayre organisers are tempting us with very competitive rates and fighting with each other to have the vehicles at the shows, reducing their rates whenever they are undercut by another organiser. Also the Wedding Magazine sales teams are in constant contact to have the vehicles profiled in their high street magazines. We have adverts coming out in The Cardiff Times, Your South Wales Wedding magazine (issue 22 does have a feature of Frankie our gorgeous Samba at the Wedding of Gemma and Nathan in June 2011 in The Newbridge on Usk part of the Celtic Manor resort) , Newtown and Tonyrefail directories and many more smaller advertising avenues.
I managed a short break yesterday after 5 solid hours infront of the laptop to eat some lunch before pushing on with the email enquiries and telephone calls for a few few hours before shooting off to collect the children from school and start some food.
Life as part of LoveDub Weddings is very busy.....Accounts file to sort out today and contracts and admin work to get out in the post to our colleagues and clients. Favours and Tags to make for shipment and then maybe a chance to do some housework.
Paul will be at the Barn sorting out the VW's. Frankie our 23 window Samba is having a wiring check and its like spaghetti junction in the front cab so Paul has work cut out today.
Here goes another exciting day at the helm.
Catch you all tommorrow
