We had no plans to hire an ice cream van for our wedding, but after a lot of people invited couldn't attend, we were left with a nice chunk of our budget available. We first met Ally at a wedding fair at our venue, and immediately we were drawn to both her lovely ice cream van and to Ally herself.
After trying out her ice cream, I emailed her immediately to get a price and go ahead and book. A deposit of 50% was required to secure the booking, with the balance due about ten days before the wedding. We opted to have Ally during our drinks reception, and to serve ice cream for 50 guests.
Ally liaised with the venue to arrange where and when to set up, which was a great weight off my mind.
On the day itself
Ally set up without any disruption to us – I almost forgot we had an ice cream van booked! The ice cream flavour choices were out of this world, there were so many to choose from. For anyone who didn't want ice cream there were some lovely drinks in retro bottles and ice lollies available.
Ally was her usual friendly self on the day, making every guest feel welcome. She also kindly took apart her ice cream van to get Tony inside some photos.
If you are in Cambridgeshire and looking for a vintage ice cream van to hire for any event, not just weddings, then I can strongly recommend Sweet Ally Scoops. I am already thinking of any other excuse I have to hire an ice cream van…
