These days every bride and groom wants a wedding day they will never forget. The first dance has to be the most imaginable, the dance moves must make Travolta envious. The cake must be ten times bigger, and tastier, the little figurines modelled to scale, brides are skydiving and grooms are galloping into the church on a white stallion. People are constantly improving the ideal wedding day. How about this for something off the beaten track with enough wow factor and "aww cute" usually only reserved for kittens. Kombi weddings. There are millions of fans worldwide of the iconic VW Kombi. It talks of a time when love was true and real, and romance meant driving off into the sunset on great adventures with the person of your dreams. Originally named the "Type 2" and released in 1949 it was the second model of a car made by Volkswagen, the first being the "Type 1", also known as the Beetle. One of the forerunners of the modern cargo and passenger vans, Volkswagen is one of the most iconic manufacturers in the world. It has been making vans for more than sixty years and has produced many vehicles over the years which have confirmed their popularity and reliability time and time again. A classic time piece, the VW Kombi gets it name from the German word Kombinationskraftwagen which means a combined-use vehicle, but it has earned various nicknames worldwide. In Mexico, the German Kombi was translated as Combi and became renowned in the capital thanks to the public transport system. In Portugal it is called the Pao-de-forma which means Breadloaf because its design resembles bread baked in a mould. In America, its fans call it a VW Bus, Hippie Van, or Transporter. The early versions produced before 1967 used a split front windshield and their comparative rarity has led to them becoming well sought after by collectors. The VW Kombi is a much loved symbol whose popularity is not waning anytime soon and that is only part of what makes our kombi weddings so endearing and memorable. The same can also be said for Byron Bay, a beachside town located in the far north eastern corner of New South Wales. The town was named after John Byron who was lucky enough to circumnavigate of the world and who was the grandfather of the poet Lord Byron. The town is popular for surfing, skydiving, whale-watching and is a bit of a mecca for backpackers, Boho-lovers and intrepid travellers. People sometimes wonder what it is about Byron Bay that makes it such a timeless place for locals and tourists alike. Some say it is just simply the vibe. This is why the VW Kombi and Byron Bay make for such a great marriage, both iconic partners who speak of times gone by and whispers hope of future's fantasy. Although Byron Bay Kombis cater for all sorts of occasions it is especially weddings that fit perfectly into the theme of classic longevity, and makes the kombi Byron Bay combination a must. Weddings through out time have had some traditions that have stayed the course while some have waned. The tradition of wearing a wedding ring on the fourth finger of the left hand is because it was once thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart. While diamonds and gold seem to be the most popular in the western world, in the symbolic language of jewellery a sapphire or an aquamarine in a wedding ring means marital happiness, while apparently a pearl engagement ring is said to be bad luck because its shape echoes that of a tear. Queen Victoria started the trend of the white wedding dress in 1840. Before then western brides simply wore their best dress. In Japan wearing white was always the colour of choice. The ancient Greeks and Romans thought the veil protected the bride from evil spirits, a trend that continues to this day. In Asia wearing a dress with embroidered cranes symbolizes fidelity. According to Hindu culture rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. In Egypt, women pinch the bride on her wedding day for good luck, and apparently Czech newly-weds get peas thrown at them rather than rice. Each culture has something to call their own and in these modern times weddings are tailored to a more individual expression which brings us back to the kombi Byron Bay weddings. About Byron Bay Weddings Tripping along the Byron Bay and the Northern Rivers is pretty mesmerising in itself but add the traditional ride of the VW Kombi and the bridal party is sure to be transported into a time capsule of class and nostalgia. A kombi hire Byron Bay mix is a must. Everyone says love is not a smooth ride but a wedding like this will be the best start to a romantic adventure, with Byron Bay Kombi's self styled purpose-built Kombis. People these days hardly give a wedding procession a second look but a wedding event like this is sure to turn heads and even make one or two hippies swoon with memories of days gone by. The Kombi has been a centre of many trendy and hip popular cultures for several decades and it has captivated musicians and film producers and their like. This superior and fun wedding transport service is accessible across all of Australia. The kombi hire Byron Bay also do bespoke designs of decorations according to the whims and wishes of their beloved customers. They cater for many occasions, from formal school trips to friend's reunions. A big draw when it comes to the kombi wedding hire is that for once the entire bridal party can travel together and with the iconic VW windows guests can see the happy couple bonding. A far cry from a limo or other car that keeps the lovebirds mostly hidden. A big part of the day is being with all the friends and family and all too often the couple find themselves cut off from the people that mean the most to them. The two Kombis that are available for the kombi wedding hire have two distinct and alluring pastel colours that are a perfect reflection of a wedding tone and character. There is a charming “Granny” and an appealing “Peppy”. Granny the Classic Love 58! Granny is the endearing name of this classic 1958 built Kombi. Elegance and grace coupled with comfort and classic prestige: this is the granny who still rocks her funky chic outfits and does her hair every day, not the granny who lives in tracksuit bottoms and spills biscuit crumbs everywhere. In a chic cream colour this is the type of transportation that will not clash with the bride's colour scheme. We are also more than happy to decorate either Kombi with bright flowers and ribbons. Granny has been beautifully restored. The engine was in a good condition at the time it was purchased but the outer covering needed some touching up. Considering it was built in 1958 the amount of rusting has been slight. It was much loved and cared for by its previous owner and that continues this present day for a kombi van hire wedding. Long term love, care and affection, the perfect vibe for a wedding party to be a part of. The Granny is a right-hand drive and its originality is kept to true form. The Granny's number plate reads “58 Love”. Peppy- The Mint Love 68 Peppy has an attractive pastel mint shade. This Kombi speaks of the nostalgia back in 1967 and has a more Bohemian vibe that can stand out while not outshining the bride. Open to decoration and personal touches for the special day, Peppy is the latest addition to the Kombi family. Her distinguishing feature is the rounded windows on the back, perfect for those cool and chic wedding photos. A left hand drive, Peppy is ready to carry the newly-weds past delightful and stunning scenery. It oozes classic panache, "the summer of love", and even the emblem of the VW speaks of a circle within, in which all that has meaning to you is cherished. Peppy's number plate reads “68 Love”.
