Perfect Day Weddings & Events have a wonderful family of four high-spec, immaculate and much loved classic VW vehicles. If you happen to fall in love with one or more of our pristine 1960’s Split Screen camper vans and our beautiful 1972 Beetle Cabriolet, and cannot decide which family member you would like to invite to your special day, then why not choose more than one VW and hire a combination of classic vehicles that would compliment each other and look absolutely amazing. You and your guests would arrive at your destination in unique style and be the talk of the town! In these circumstances, no need to worry about costs as all of our rates are competitive and we offer a multi-vehicle discount. Just ask for details when enquiring.
All our VWs originate from all over the world and each have a very special story to tell. They have all been lovingly restored with no expense spared and a great deal of patience, care and love. The interiors are all bespoke that have been designed specifically for weddings, private hires and events whilst keeping the 1960’s feel which has made these classics so sought after and loved around the globe. As our VWs are all classics they are not legally required to have certain safety features that modern day cars must have. However, Perfect Day Weddings & Events believe that the safety of our passengers is paramount and have therefore worked towards making our VWs safe and fit for purpose by installing a number of safety features to all of our vehicles. These include safety belts to all front and rear seating, deluxe first aid kits, AFFF fire extinguishers, first aid trained chauffeurs, and emergency breakdown kits. In addition, all our VWs are MOT’d, Licensed for Private Hire, and inspected, by Canterbury City Council, have full wedding & event insurance and are covered by RAC comprehensive breakdown cover.
Our VWs will provide you with a unique and bespoke experience creating memories you will always remember.
Hello… I’m Chris (or Christopher as my Mother usually calls me when I’ve done something wrong!)
And now the hardest part of setting up this website …talking about myself ! I hope I don’t bore you too much and send you to sleep, or it starts to sound like a personal online dating site (lol) but here goes…
On the 26th April 2016 Perfect Day Weddings & Events Ltd was born. With the experience and knowledge I gained over the last 20 years working in Events and Hospitality in the UK and America, it was my passion for classic cars, anything retro, high quality locally produced foods and dishes, and the buzz and excitement of producing amazing never to forget events that were the catalysts for me setting up this exciting new business.
Born in 1966 (a good year for football so I’m told) I grew up in Kent and learnt how much the county has to offer. With our family of superb VWs I hope to showcase many of the traditions and way of life in the county of Kent, the garden of England.
After graduating in Political Science at a University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania USA, I graduated from the University of Brighton in 1996 studying International Hospitality Management.
Following spells at law firms in Washington DC, and working at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in the USA, I spent the last 18 years working in London managing catering, events, exhibitions and facilities departments at a renowned art and design college which helped me gain invaluable experience and skills in a wide range of different customer based and public sector positions. Working closely with venue finders, catering companies and event production teams I supervised many large high profile events and weddings including the 2012 London Olympics, as well as a number of corporate and private events.
It was the production of these creative events that gave me the flair for all things bespoke, creative and fun. Perfect Day Weddings and Events Ltd brings together all of the events and hospitality experiences and knowledge I gained over the years allowing me to create a special and unique service built upon an enthusiasm for providing a professional, high quality, bespoke, innovative and memorable service.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
