Are VW Campervan Photoshoots The New Wedding Trend Of The Year?
Why are these photoshoots so special?
Photos have always played a vital part at weddings, with guests and photographers alike all scrambling to get the perfect picture, destined to be framed on walls and mantelpieces in the living rooms of relatives.
The perfect picture might be the first kiss, the exchanging of vows or, a professionally posed photoshoot. Whatever you choose, photoshoots are a brilliant way to guarantee you’ll end the day with your favourite moments captured to the high standards of a professional.
Over the past few years, a new trend has emerged involving incorporating wedding hire cars into wedding photos. No longer just a means of getting from A to B, the wedding car is now front and centre of many photos.
The Volkswagen campervans and beetles, in particular, are old favourites that have shaken up the wedding scene. Campervans provide couples with the perfect prop for retro photos as well as a practical solution for travelling to and from the big day.
Some of the biggest wedding trends of 2021 include reclaiming vintage, making personal touches to your decor and DIY projects. Hiring a VW campervan and personalising it ticks all those boxes!
Why do people choose VW campervans for their wedding?
VW campervans, with their iconic look, ooze that sleek yet vintage feel that many people crave and have long been the subject of iconic imagery. Their popularity has boomed so much in recent years that new models of the campervans are set to launch in 2022 due to the sheer number of requests from the public.
The campervans have shot to stardom over the past few years as a must-have for couples searching for something unique for their wedding day. Proving to be just as stylish as they are practical, a VW campervan might just be the thing you’re looking for to add a bit of flair to your wedding photoshoot.
The campervans are the perfect place to shelter from the rain if you’re having an outdoor wedding, they can be used as a station for drinks, or as a place for guests to leave notes and take their own photos.
With your chosen van you can create an Instagram-worthy scene that your guests will flock to to snap photos!
How can you do your own VW campervan photo shoot?
The best place to start is by exploring the wide range of campervans available to hire. There are a few questions to consider: What colours would work well with the colour palette of your wedding? What style or size do you prefer? What works for your budget?
Once you’ve selected your campervan, it’s time to deck it out with accessories to make it your own for the day. Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, even the smallest details can pop in photos and add an extra dimension to your style.
We recommend fairy lights and floral garlands to spruce up your campervan, but don’t be afraid to put your own spin on it. Those personal touches will make the photos even more precious.
There are a wide variety of poses and props you could use to accompany your campervan, with many couples choosing to blend trends by pairing their campervan photoshoots with neon signs, personalised backdrops and selfie stations. Think about what will draw people to the space and encourage them to take a photo.
A VW campervan might not be to everyone’s taste, but you can’t deny that it puts a spin on your traditional wedding. With the popularity of this vintage wedding trend growing, we think we’ll be seeing these lovable vans in wedding photos for years to come.
