A decision my partner Sadie made yesterday afternoon really made my week. She decided she wants to arrive at our wedding venue in HERBIE, yes that famous VW Beetle with a mind of its own!
A company in our hometown of Grimsby called ‘Big Day Buses‘ have imported a 1962 Volkswagen Beetle from California. They painted it in true Herbie livery and made it available to hire (with chauffeur) for weddings and other special occasions and I couldn’t be happier.
Herbie is my all-time dream car and has been since I was a small child when I first saw The Love Bug (1968) on TV so imagine my delight when Sadie agreed to hire the amazing replica. Not only will Sadie get to arrive in my only motorised fantasy but immediately after the ceremony we get to have a 30 minute chauffeur-driven ride around the town in him too.
This day, the biggest and best of my life, has just become even more special.
I’ve been humming the theme tune to The Love Bug ever since Herbie was booked!
