There is nothing like the humble food truck to satisfy your guests needs. Whether you are after a ice cream van to serve your nearest and dearest in the church car park or a vintage caravan to ply your guests with booze well into the evening we’ve got you covered with the selection of fine vendors below.
Icecream Trucks : Bringing back memories of summers long gone, the humble ice cream truck has been trawling Australian streets and beach side car parks for over 50 years! The good folk over at Classic Iced Creams have a fleet of vintage and new (ex) Mr Whippy vans you can hire for your wedding or engagement party. Operating in and around the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast and as far as Toowoomba, Beaudesert and other areas of the South East Queensland, you can click here to make an enquiry or booking.
Dhaba Curry Truck: Perfect for Victorians tying the knot in the cooler months that also happen to be looking for a little something special to warm their guests bellies. In India, Dhabas line the roadsides, serving fresh curries to the common man and woman. They are simple and honest, a tent to cover pots perched above an open fire, surrounded by throngs of people eating, sharing and laughing… It’s this simple authenticity that inspires the fine folk of Dhaba Curry Truck to hit the streets of Melbourne day in and day out serving up delicious Indian cuisine. You can find their daily locations via their Facebook page or make an enquiry or booking for your wedding day here.
Liana Raine Pops: Based in Sydney the fine folk of Liana Raine are makers of artisan gourmet ice popsicles in seasonal flavours! Imagine how pumped your guests would be to roll out of the stifling hot church/barn/hall on a warm summers day only to have a Boysenberry Cream Cheese Ripple or a Nectarine & Rose Yogurt popcile thrust into their hot little hands! The vintage inspired Liana Raine Pop Cart is available for hire year round and Bianca and Aja and their crew can even customise the sticks and flavours to suit your wedding day! If that’s not top-notch service we don’t know what is! Click here and get booking!
Hello Mr Jenkins: This 10ft piece of awesomeness is a one of a kind mobile bar with quirky and vintage touches. Based on the southern Gold Coast (but servicing Byron Bay to Brisbane and everywhere in between) Mr Jenkins is the perfect addition to any outdoor wedding or engagement party, Why? Because they don’t actually supply the booze! They simply provide (a rather wonderful) van and bar staff to serve the aforementioned alcohol to your thirsty guests. This is perfect for those on a budget as it means you can take your time shopping for the right alcohol (for the right price) in the lead up to your wedding day! Click here to make a enquiry or booking.
Taco Truck: We are huge fans of James Taylor here at Hello May and ‘Mexico’ is often on repeat on the record player (because who needs iTunes when you have the crackly original vinyl!) We dream of of prawn quesadillas and spicy bean mixes and long for the days when ‘what time should we start drinking margaritas’ was the toughest question of the day! If another trip to Mexico (or a first trip for that matter) is a distant dream then lucky for you the Taco Truck is currently cruising the mean street of Melbourne. You can follow their Facebook page to find out their daily locations and have a bit of a taste test then drop them a line here and tee them up to swing by your wedding reception!
The Little van That Could: This little gem offers a uniquely styled vintage van for hire to Adelaide locals. Perfect for that awkward post-ceremony but pre-reception part of the day where no one quite knows what to do or where they should be, the fine folk of The Little Van That Could can busy themselves taking care of your guests with bubbles, beers and homemade lemonade while you are off working it for your photographer. Drop the lovely Monique a line here to enquire about a booking!
