FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



CAN WE BOOK FLEUR FOR OUR HOME/GARDEN WEDDING?


Of course you can, we absolutely LOVE intimate wedding settings. 

The only thing you need to be aware of is that Fleur is a 47 year old vehicle, there will be certain locations that we will have to say no to driving her on to unfortunately. We are quite experienced at this however, so will likely find a better spot at your venue to locate her. We much prefer a hardstanding position for Fleur, especially if there will be chance of rain.



HOW LONG WILL YOU BE AT OUR EVENT?


We tend to arrive at your venue about 2 hours prior to the time you require us to start serving your guests. This allows us to unload Fleur (she is an old girl, she doesn't drive very fast, so we tend to pop her on our low loader to transport her to your venue) and will serve your guests for up to 2 hours. This is more than plenty of time for guests to eat, mingle and have photos taken with Fleur, before moving on to another section of your special day. At this point, we clear up, remove all waste, reload Fleur onto the low loader and quietly leave your Wedding or Party.

If you require us to be there for longer, for example you have booked several packages with us, then we agree a time between us.



WHAT DO YOU DO IF THERE IS ADVERSE WEATHER?


We have a lovely white 3m x 3m Gazebo, which we place in front of Fleur to keep your guests dry. This has often been placed between Fleur and the door to your venue to ensure nobody gets wet while enjoying our fabulous treats.

If it's particularly windy, this will not be erected. 

If you are planning a Winter wedding or event and have serious concerns about your guests having to come outside and you do not have indoor space for Fleur to fit in, we have another option. We can come along to your venue and provide a stunning Cake Table, decorated in our typical chic rustic style, dripping with our cakes and bakes. Contact us for a chat about this situation. Unfortunately we cannot predict nor control the weather, so it is always a good idea to have a contingency plan.



WHAT FACILITIES DO YOU REQUIRE AT OUR VENUE?


We just require a safe spot for Fleur to sit on and enough space for us to unload her from the low loader (if using) - this is enough space for a Discovery, plus a 17ft trailer and additional room for Fleur to drive off and manoeuvre. Also, a space to park our car and low loader while we are with you, where we can get easy access to at the end in order to be able to leave.

We come with a small silent generator but do prefer having access to electricity, even just to reduce noise. It means that if you have an evening event we can really light Fleur up without worrying about overloading the generator.
