The Vintage Tipple Bar
The Vintage Tipple Bar is a lovingly converted vintage style mobile bar, offering a bespoke drinks service which is perfect for weddings, anniversaries and many more occasions. The little bar has travelled all the way from Italy to its home in West Yorkshire and while the bar was born in Italy, the team's dream to build something like this came long before. As life-long friends turned business partners, the owners of The Vintage Tipple Bar spent their younger days making dens in the woods and their adult evenings reminiscing about the good old days over a drink.
This is what they believe underpins The Vintage Tipple Bar; they want to bring friends, families and communities together. They believe they can add something special to your event... with a dash of stylish chic and a few tipples, the party can begin. They pride themselves on creating an excellent relationship with clients, to build a tailor-made package to suit your individual needs.
Wobbly Wheels Vintage VW Bar
Wobbly Wheels is a vintage VW bar, part of an established, family-run business based in South Yorkshire. The original 1970s VW bay window van has been expertly kitted out and transformed into a unique, classy bar perfect for your wedding day. The team sell a variety of drinks ranging from lagers, real ales, ciders, spirits, champagne and wines, while also catering with non-alcoholic refreshments. Their speciality is freshly made cocktails, served with fruit, ice and garnish. With all your favourites being sold from the VW bar, there is something to satisfy everybody's taste.
SausageBox International is a street food trader from Leeds providing gourmet and speciality sausage. The team use local produce to showcase flavour combinations inspired by international cuisine.
SausageBox came into existence in 2015. It was the brainchild of its founding couple, Dan Burgess and Felicity Richardson, and began as a love of great food, the desire to do something different and a passion for street food. Since then they’ve taken their sausage all around Yorkshire and traded from their beautifully converted horsebox at some of the biggest and best food festivals Yorkshire has to offer.
Dan and Felicity love working with couples to create a menu that reflects the foods most special to them. Whether that be from their first holiday, the heritage of their family or just their favourite Friday night food.
The Horsebox Pizza Company
The Napoli style pizza has proved popular at weddings across Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire. In a converted Rice horsebox painted bright red, the team have a prep fridge to ensure their locally sourced ingredients remain fresh and the big boy wood fired oven to ensure the dough transforms into fabulous traditional-style pizza.
The menu is bespoke and includes options for side salads, dessert and gelato. For truly laid back entertaining, try the antipasto platters which include cured meats and cheese with olives, rustic bread selection and dips such as pesto and hummus.
The team are committed to using only compostable plates, platters and cutlery so your event won't cost the earth.
The Gin Shack
With nearly 20 years' experience in the food and drink industry, and a love of gin, The Gin Shack was established in 2016. When a horsebox presented itself, the only possible thing owner Rebecca Brayson could do was to convert it into a beautiful gin bar. So with the help of family and friends and a lot of hard work, The Gin Shack was born. Rebecca searches out unusual gins all over the beautiful region, but also all over the world. It's all about the distiller and their story (as well as the fabulous gins they produce of course).
A perfect way for gin lovers to start their wedding reception, The Gin Shack can be hired for your reception drinks. With the emphasis on the gins, the team have a number of drinks packages and options to suit everyone. Their emphasis is all about the service and looking after you and your friends and family on your special day. The shack is beautifully decorated and ready to receive you and your guests at your reception venue.
