By Katie Stow

Deciding on your wedding transportation is usually quite a tricky process, until we clocked eyes on Klassic Kombiz. There is something so deliciously retro about rolling up on your big day in a classic kombi split-screen van, oozing style, flair and looking so damn comfortable! With the ability to get your whole bridal party in there with you, there’s no need to pick favourites (or book a taxi for the bridesmaids) and to have your on-the-day transport logistics handled by this pro team means a very lovely weight is lifted off your shoulders. Particularly as the kombi hire Klassic Kombiz team always go the extra mile (pun DEFINITELY intended).

To answer any and all questions you may have about a kombi hire for your wedding, we sat down with Sarah Finlayson from Klassic Kombiz to get the low down on these jazzy vans.

What are the advantages of booking a VW Kombi  hire over a car for your wedding day?

“Number one reason why you should hire a VW Kombi? They are iconic and full of character! A kombi can usually carry the driver plus eight passengers, though seven is the best fit comfort-wise. Therefore with twin kombis, your entire bridal party can fit in with you. They are roomy inside and Klassic Kombiz are especially luxurious.  With back seats facing each other, and a spot for your champagne glass, it creates a fun, social atmosphere during the ride while you enjoy the tunes. The retro barn doors open right up, so you can hop in and out with ease and this also provides opportunities for gorgeous photos in the kombis too. We encourage couples to use our kombis during the photo session whether it be before or after the ceremony and our drivers are happy to suggest some epic shots. One of our favourites is a photo of the gorgeous couple in the front seat with the split-screens wide open – too cute! We look after our couples with chilled beverages and a tasty grazing board to keep them going until they hit the Reception, all kept in our cute little boot! We carry everything you will need with our “Emergency Basket” on board in each Kombi… we have thought of everything you might need, so that you don’t have to worry.”

What does it cost to book a VW Kombi for your wedding day?

“Each booking is different and is quoted on the number of kombis you book, your Sydney locations and the length of time you book us for. We usually suggest a 3-4 hour wedding package so that you’re not rushed and you have time to get the photos you really want at various locations and have time to have a drink and relax before you hit the Reception. When you book two Kombis together, you immediately get a discounted rate.”

What styles and colours does Klassic Kombiz have available for couples?

“Klassic Kombiz has two kombis available and they are identical. It’s pretty rare to find twinning kombis! They were restored specifically for weddings and are finished in ‘champagne+white’ which compliment every theme and setting beautifully. Whether you’re after a boho, vintage, urban, beach, forest or country style setting, you can be assured that our kombis will look gorgeous as they carry you to your dream wedding. We will happily work with other wedding car businesses so if you require a third car – just let us know. We will happily recommend a friendly supplier that can join us.”
