19th January 2015
Angus VW Wedding Bus made his debut at the “Your Wedding Exhibition” at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 January 2015. He was accompanied by Fergus Camper.
Set up for all exhibitors was on the Friday. What a fantastic venue and there was great excitement as stands took shape. At last we were ready for our brides, grooms, bridesmaids and families!
After posting this on Facebook on the Friday night, we had over 6,000 views!
With the help of Mr P, we were ready to face our public!
The day kicked off by me being interviewed by the lovely Martin Ingram from “Original FM” radio. See our Facebook page to hear the result!
We met some lovely brides, grooms, bridesmaids and families. We were run off our feet, with over 3,000 visitors crossing the threshold of the AECC over the course of the weekend. Here are just a few who came to see us ….
Sunday morning couldn’t have kicked off better …. we won the “Runner Up” prize for “BEST STAND”. All those months of preparation and hard work paid off. It is actually the first time a car stand has won a prize! My mascara ran that morning!
And on the day went. Brides returned with their grooms and families to make final decisions. We received over 70 enquiries and took wedding bookings too. Congratulations to Bride Sarah who has booked her wedding with us and was so excited that she wanted her pic taken with Angus VW!
During the course of the Exhibition we ran a competition to name our new VW Wedding Bus. As you can see the winning name pulled out of the hat was “ANGUS”. Congratulations to Kelly who won a “splitty” moneybox.
Thank you to everyone who came to see us at the Wedding Exhibition who stopped to have a chat. Thank you to the organisers who made us feel very welcome for our first attendance, and to the other exhibitors for their support. We had a blast of a weekend!
Looking forward to helping make all our brides’ wedding day very special!
