The festival wedding of Charlie and Johnny in July 2018.
Toot Sweets & Co Mobile Bar were asked to be the wedding bar for Charlie and Johnny. The venue was one we hadn’t heard of before so it was quite exciting to go along and see what it was like. It was based in Compton Martin and the venue is very laid back and offers wedding couples the opportunity to have the wedding they want. Charlie and Johnny were able to keep costs down and provide a lot of the food themselves (Johnny is a chef) and, after seeing our beautiful Citroen HY Van on the website and fallen in love with it, we were invited along to be their mobile bar provider.
Having discussed the structure, timings and number of wedding guests for the day we suggested that we increase the size of the bar service area to keep queues down. As well as taking along our Citroen HY Van as their mobile bar, we extended our serving area to include the gazebo and rustic bar set up.
The vintage van has an onboard barista coffee machine so we were able to provide hot drinks throughout the day and evening from lattes and cappuccinos to hot chocolates and speciality teas. With a freshly ground coffee option we were also able to make THE BEST Espresso Martinis!
The couple were providing their own wine and bubbles for the reception but we were asked to provide welcome drinks. We set up a table to serve mason glasses of Pimms with all the trimmings, flutes of Prosecco and also flutes of Orange Juice for guests to enjoy once the ceremony had taken place and to welcome them back to the next exciting stage of the day. We have a large number of mason jars with lids which we used for the pimms. Being summer the farm had a fair few wasps buzzing about so this was a great way of preventing the wasps gettng into drinks. We also supplied prosecco and glasses of orange juice in champagne flutes. Being a sustainable company we like to use compostable plastic which we collect up and send off to a commercial composting company at the end of the event. We do like to do our bit for the environment too!
After the reception we provided a full mobile bar service for all guests who sat around the fire pits, toasting marshmallows and enjoying the summers evening. We actually stayed overnight and provided bacon butties as well as teas, coffees and hot chocolates when everyone surfaced the following morning having camped overnight. They were a little worse for wear but the couple had also laid on Bloody Mary’s for all guests in the morning so again people sat about in the sunshine and had a very relaxed end to a wonderful weekend.
So if you are looking for a mobile bar that can provide hot and cold drinks as well as bacon butties, ice creams and waffles, then you need to book one of the bars from Toot Sweets & Co.
