Came from Mongolia via the US to get married in Cornwall! Great experience with Strawberry Leisure! Seamless and fun transportation in “Lola”, what a way to get to our destination! Friends also had fun posing with the van. Would recommend!
David & Laura 6th September 2017
I just felt that I had to thank you so much for helping to give my daughter and son in law a wonderful wedding day. My daughter just wanted a very intimate wedding with the immediate family, but her expectations of the day far exceeded her dreams, and that was all down to “Lola” and Roger. I want to thank Roger for being so warm and friendly towards us all. Laura’s little boy loved the journey to the wedding, especially when Roger “oinked” the horn. It was great fun and it made us all laugh and feel very relaxed. We have some lovely photos of the happy couple with “Lola” and I feel so lucky that when I made inquiries about hiring a camper van, with only 3 weeks left to go to the wedding day, “Lola” was still available. It really created the perfect wedding for them. A big thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
James & Helen 1st July 2017
We came across Strawberry Leisure at a wedding fair at Pendennis Castle which is where were getting married. We had VW enthusiasts among our wedding guests so we knew this was the transportation for us as the one we saw at the fair was in beautiful condition. We were immediately won over by Roger as he is lovely and we knew all our guests would think so too. On our big day Roger allowed one of our guests, who is a massive VW fan, to drive Layla and this pretty much made his year! Fantastic people and service. I would highly recommend.
Adrian & Marie 3rd June 2017

Lily – The most beautiful wedding car ever!
To Bob and Kate, We would like to say a big thank you to you both for providing us with wonderful, wonderful Lily!
Bob, you were so fantastic on the day, and you looked so super and were so professional you made us all feel wonderful! We cannot thank you enough for turning up and getting us all to the church on time! Lily is just exquisite and there are very few words to describe her! She fitted in so well with our “beside the seaside” theme and the detail you have put into her is just amazing.

Helen & Steve’s wedding with Lily at Breague Church, Saturday 17th September 2011 ‘An April Day in September’ was how we described in our recent blog the showery and gusty day Helen and Steve experienced for their wedding on the 17th September. Their ceremony at Breague Church was followed by a reception at The Old Coastguard, Mousehole. En-route to the reception in Lily with photographer, Andrea Michele in tow, we headed for some royal hand waving through Marazion and a stop off opposite St Michaels Mount for a photo call. Despite frequent and torrential downpours, the weather eventually perked-up. Helen and Steve had a simply wonderful time and, as you will see below, Andrea managed to get some fab shots… Today (11th October) we received this lovely email from Helen and Steve. Hey Bob, sorry haven’t got to you sooner, we’d just like to say a big thank you to you, we had a wonderful day, and being driven around in lily made our day much more special..wish we could do it all again!!! we have sent you a couple of pictures of a gift we received from one our friends, its a slate plaque, to remember our day a nice touch I thought.. We will of course recommend you where-ever we can, take care and once again thankyou!! Steve & Helen….. Mr & Mrs Hunt!!!! Photographs by Andrea Michele www.andreamichelephotography.co.uk Kate & Ciaran’s wedding with Lulu at The Blue Bar Porthtowan, Saturday 17th September 2011 Lulu with chauffeur Brett at the controls drove to one of Cornwall’s many stunning wedding venues on the north coast for the marriage of Kate and Ciaran and as you can see, Lulu certainly knows the art of seduction! Hi Bob and Kate,The service we received from yourselves and Brett on the day couldn’t have been better. Lulu was fab and all our guests loved having pictures taken with her. Brett was fantastic and really helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Strwaberry Leisure to any of our family and friends and I hope we get an excuse to use Lulu again in the future! Thanks Kate & Ciaran Shier Amy & Greg’s wedding at St Mawnan Parish Church Saturday 13th August 2011 Chauffeur Brett attended to Amy and Greg’s wedding in Lola on Saturday 13th August and today (29th September) Amy’s mum Penny sent the following email, accompanied by a couple of lovely photographs of the bride and groom clearly enjoying Lola to the full: Dear Bob, This is a belated thank you for Lola’s presence at Amy and Greg’s wedding.

Kind Regards Rob & Laura Penhaligon Sarah & Carl’s wedding in Mylor, 9th July 2011 In the few weeks we have had Lily, she has been in very high demand and is already turning out to be quite a celebrity, just like her siblings, Lola and Lulu. This morning a lovely email arrived along with a collection of pictures from Sarah following her marriage to Carl last Saturday. Lily was chaufeured on the day by Alan Symons... Dear Bob and Kate Thank you so much for helping to make our special day so perfect on the 9th of July. Your driver was fantastic, very friendly, helpful and wanting to do his very best for us by driving us to various locations for photographs and being patient whilst she featured in all of our photographs. Lily certainly stole the show and enthralled the guests but I really didn’t mind being upstaged by her! Thanks again and kind regards Sarah Claire-Marie & Craig’s wedding in Padstow A few days ago a beautiful hand-made ‘thank you’ card arrived from Claire-Marie & Craig with a lovely picture of Lola and Lulu on the front cover. Since their wedding in Padstow last year Claire-Marie & Craig have clearly had a lot on their plates but it was great to receive such a wonderful card and of course hear that they are having a great time together… To Bob & Kate, Thank you so much for making our wedding day on the 28th October 2010 run so smootthly with the added wow factor. Everyone loved the campervans, including us, and that’s why we chose to have the picture of them on the front of our thank you cards! Nothing was a problem for you and this helped, especially when stuck behind a delivery van in Padstow! Thanks again, love from Claire-Marie and Craig. May 2011 – Justin and Kerry’s wedding in Breage, Helston. Thank you very much for such wonderful service and big thanks to our drivers they were great. We loved having the “girls” for our wedding day, they stole the show!! We have loads of lovely pics, here are a few for you to see. Thank you again. Kerry x April 2011 – Dafydd and Merrewyn’s wedding A huge thank you from us both for all your hard work in making our wedding so special. Lola was magnificent and managed to turn quite a few heads – our guests really loved her! A huge thank you again (to you and lola) Dafydd and Merrewyn XX April 2011 – Now you can have your splitty and eat it! Becky and Nikki’s wedding Another wonderfully sunny day in April this year saw Becky and Nikki get married at Truro Registry Office followed by a reception at Rosewarne Manor. 24 hours before their appointment with the Registrar they popped in to say hello to Lulu and show us (and Lulu) their incredible wedding cake. As you can see, it takes the form of Lulu to the finest detail – the decals, even her spotty curtains! As you may have gathered by now, Becky and Nikki absolutely adore Lulu. So much so, they really did not want their wedding day experience to end. So before heading to the reception we made for Godrevy. The paparazzi were soon out in force along with dozens of onlookers (as usual), which made Becky and Nikki feel like royalty on their special day and righly so. It was then on to the reception to tuck into Lulu! The cake was made by Heather Brindley of ‘Cherry on Top’. Heather can be contacted on 07990 833 822 firstname.lastname@example.org www.designercakesgloucester.co.uk More pictures and feedback to follow shortly… April 2011 – Kayleigh and Andrew’s wedding at St Stephens in Lola and Lulu
New Years Eve 2010 in St Ives for Tony and Karen’s wedding Surprises appear to be all the fashion these days. New Year’s Eve in St Ives was certainly no exception! Tony had arranged a huge surprise for his bride Karen who had no idea whatsoever that Lola was coming to collect her and transport her and guests in scintillating fashion to Tregenna Castle for what turned out to be a most atmospheric ceremony. There were a lot of tears en-route (including me – Bob the chauffeur) it was really moving! A few days ago a CD turned up in the post with loads of pictures on it from Tony. The message simply read… “A million thanks for making the day truly superb” Just take a look at these wonderful pictures which were taken by Simon Green Photography of Penzance. The weather certainly didn’t spoil Jenni’s and Neil’s wedding on Friday 29th October 2010! Jenni orchestrated a wonderful surprise for Neil who had no idea that Lola would be waiting for them after their ceremony at Towednack Church. Despite some wet and windy weather (as you will see below) they both had a tremendous time in Lola who never fails to impress, not just the bride and groom but guests and onlookers alike. After some pictures and champagne at St Ives harbour, it was off to the reception at Carbis Bay Hotel. En-route the sun made a brief appearance, we rolled back Lola’s full length ragtop and ‘wicked-up’ Michael Buble. Suffice it to say, we had an emotional arrival. Photography by Kirstin Prisk Some great pictures from Liza and Robin’s wedding on April 23rd 2010.. Lulu came along also, especially for the bridesmaids Emma and Darren’s ‘Christmassy’ wedding at the spectacular Pendennis Castle on December 12th 09…. Christmas Wellies! Emma & Darren soaking up the winter sun and champers! From James and Sarah who were married in October 09 at St Erth Church and held their reception at carbis Bay Hotel Dear Bob and Kate, Thanks so much for helping us celebrate our big day – we really appreciate it. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. ‘Lola’ + ‘Lulu’ certainly made our day even more special + we had so many comments about how amazing they were – so thank you for delivering us in style! From Isabella and Diego following their wedding in St Ives and reception at Porthleven Hi Bob, Just a quick email to thank you so much for the hire of the gorgeous Lola for my wedding day, she was really perfect. Check out these great photo’s of Isabella and Diego’s wedding. Photography by Sebastien Dehesdin www.onedayforever.com All of our weddings are special and it really is very satisfying helping to make these occasions so memorable, enjoyable and exciting. We were recently so pleased to help Mary and George celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary in St Ives…. Dear Bob & Kate, Thank you so much for helping to make our Golden Anniversary so special. Lola looked so beautiful and we were so excited. George is very rarely lost for words but Bob & Lola did the trick on Saturday! The occasion far exceeded my expectations & we shall have dozens of photos for you to see. You helped to make our Golden Wedding unforgetable – thank you very much. Mary and George A thank You card following Leo & Tessa’s wedding … Dear Strawberry Leisure, We just wanted to say a huge thank you to both yourselves and Lola for providing the transport for our wedding. Everyone remarked on how special Lola was and she somehow managed to get into everybody’s wedding photos – she really stole the show! Although the journey itself only formed a small part of the wedding, it was one of the most memorable, with Leo even saying that he preferred Lola to the Morgan, which is saying something! Anyway thank you again and you’ll be pleased to know that Lola Junior (Lola table lamp) is now sitting pride of place in our living room! With kindest regards Leo & Tessa
