Styled Shoot Location: The Cherry Barn

The East Sussex wedding venue is a stunning 400-acre working sheep and fruit farm, locatyed at Clayton farm, Peasmarsh, Rye TN31 6XS


Our VW Beetle sussex wedding car hire travels to The Cherry Barn.

Every year, we showcase our campervan wedding car and beetle wedding car hire services by taking part in several styled photoshoots.  These are in collaboration with various, fabulous wedding industry suppliers. It is always a great way to meet other people and is usually a fun day out – with the added bonus of getting some stunning photos at the end.

We were absolutely thrilled when Nataly at Nataly J Photography invited us to join a styled shoot at the glorious Sussex wedding venue, called The Cherry Barn. The weather was perfect and we were looking forwards to teaming up with some old friends and some new suppliers.

Beatrix the white VW Beetle Wedding Car

Beatrix is one of our collection of retro VW wedding cars. She is a white volkswagen beetle, with a panoramic soft top roof and can seat two passengers in the back, and one up front alongside our wedding car driver.

She is a pretty girl, with white walled tyres, chrome “towel rail” bumpers and trim, and looks pretty as a picture with her silk flower garlands and ribbons in your choice of colour.

Inside, she has white upholstery with beige piping, and is decorated with flowers on the rear parcel shelf, and  pretty cushions for a comfortable ride.

The biggest joy with our VW Beetle wedding car, is that unmistakable aircooled engine sound, which purrs and she pootles along, turning heads as she goes!

We are based in Croydon, providing campervan and beetle wedding car hire on the Surrey, London, Sussex and Kent borders. We typically travel 40 miles across from Croydon, but can quote to travel just outside of this area – especially when it is to a venue as gorgeous as The Cherry Barn!

The styled Sussex wedding photoshoot

We were lucky to work alongside a super talented team of wedding professionals to bring these elopement styled shoot photos together. 

  • Photographer: Nataly J Photography (Oh my goodness, this lady rocks!)
  • Stylist and prop hire: Locate to Create
  • Venue: The Cherry Barn
  • Florist: Bloomantic
  • Stationary: Wonderland Invites
  • Cake: Cake me by Suprise
  • Tableware: Harriets Table
  • VW Beetle: Buttercup Bus Vinatge Campers (That’s us!)

I need to send a special shout out to Cake me by Suprise, as we all got to eat the cake after the photoshoot (a perk of the job!) and my goodness, it was delicious! I even took some home for my family. Highly recommended!

Check out a sample of the images from the shoot that we have added to a little gallery below. They make for great wedding inspiration – so, so pretty!

I’m Nathalie, a mother with two little ones who love going out in the campers – be it a trip to the supermarket, or a holiday by the coast! My experience is pretty mixed… I studied to become an anatomist, wore a white coat and was a bit nifty with a scalpel when it came to dissections… but somehow ended up working for a software company and then specialised as a business consultant (for 15 years), gaining useful skills to set up my own company Buttercup Bus Vintage Campers… I love to eat cheese – the smellier and mouldier the better… hate ironing, have a handbag filled with lipstick and spanners… and I have a passion for all things VW…
