……a rose by any other name may smell as sweet according to Shakespeare , BUT would a Pear Tree Wedding VW Wedding camper still be as cool if it had another name?
So we have the VW wedding campervans: Morris, Wilson, Basil, Daphne and Flossy and our gorgeous VW wedding Beetle: Wilma – some of the most fabulous names we think you’ll agree. They give each VW a character, and each name was chosen for a very specific reason – and no, not just because they’re awesome names…..but each wedding VW has its name for a reason!
Morris: Morris had lived in an old barn in San Fernando, California for 15years until he came across to join the Pear Tree Weddings VW Wedding Camper team during the 2012 Olympics…… Mrs Pear Tree was very keen to call him Mo after Mo Farrah, and Little Miss Pear Tree has her heart set on Borris, after Borris Johnson – and so the battle of the names began…..until some little 5year old bright spark piped up with “Why don’t you put the names together and call him Morris?” – thank you Master Pear Tree!
Wilson: Wilson came to the UK about the time the Tom Hanks Castaway movie came out over here– the ball in Castaway was a Wilson Sporting Goods volleyball, that became a friend to the castaway, which he simply called Wilson.
Basil: Basil is a stunning vintage green colour, he was named after the fresh green herb, and used to work alongside other VW wedding campers & Beetles called Parsley and Thyme!
Daphne: Daphne came to us in summer 2013, and we really struggled to name her – nothing seemed quite right, so we opened it up on Facebook asking people to suggest names. We had some fantastic suggestions, but some shrewd Facebooker realised her number plate started with “D A P” and suggested Daphne.
Flossy: Flossy came to us when she was called Kojak, but we just knew she was a girl, so that name just didn’t suit her. On her first family weekend out we went to a festival where the children ate pure white candy floss, and they decided the VW camper should either be called Candy or Flossy….Flossy won!
Wilma: well you all know about her as you read the blog last week!!!
…….and if you didn’t it because brides would ask “Will ma dress fit in?” (the answer is yes by the way!)
