Once the confetti has settled, the dancefloor has cleared, and the last glass has been packed away, it's a little sad for us to say goodbye to all our wonderful couples. So it's always such a joy to receive an email in our inbox that's a big, fat THANK YOU. We know it's the little extra bits behind the scenes that make all the difference, so we love it when that shines through and makes your event truly amazing.

“Before we even set the date we knew we wanted the gorgeous Canavan to be a part of our wedding day. We wanted a relaxed, festival-like party and The Canavan was a big part of creating the overall vibe. The bar and furniture looked incredible and the staff were amazing but what really blew us away was how much Adam and Anika took the stress out of planning such a big event.
After a few chats with Adam early on we felt so confident that he would be able to not only nail the set up and management of the bar but the entire day. We handed over the coordination to the Canavan and didn't look back. What we love most about their approach is that they don't overcomplicate and deliver on what's promised without needing to ask a hundred questions along the way all while keeping a very cool, calm and collected approach.
We can't recommend making The Canavan a part of your day enough. Thank you Adam and Anika - you honestly made our day!”

"A massive massive thank you needs to be passed on to Adam and the team for our wedding. They were so accommodating and flexible with the circumstances and we couldn’t of been more happy and thankful for the service and ease they displayed. Nothing was too difficult to manage and Bree and I both had so many people coming up and commenting how awesome the Canavan was and how wonderful the staff were. You guys were amazing and we’re really thankful you were a part of our evening."

"Just an email to thank you and your crew for a fantastic effort running the Canavan Bar; serving drinks, food and of course the beautiful set-up of the venue. I have received so many emails and text messages - as well as all the comments that evening - on what an awesome set up and just how cool and funky The Canavan is."
"Anika, Adam and their team are the beez kneez! Not only was 'The Canavan' itself an amazing bar, these guys helped out with event coordination, styling and anything and everything we needed on the day. Anika & Adam went above and beyond helping us plan our wedding while we were living overseas, from site inspections and vendor recommendations to salami pick-up, these guys were crazy helpful. We wanted a relaxed backyard wedding vibe and The Canavan's styling, props and friendly faces perfectly suited the day. The Canavan team were accommodating, experienced and delivered a seamless event."

"The Canavan was a perfect match for Hamish and I. We live in Perth but were planning a festival vibe wedding in Brisbane. I knew I wanted a fabulous caravan bar for the day but was undecided about the amount of styling/planning help I needed. Turns out Adam and Anika not only have an amazing van perfectly suited to getting cold drinks to thirsty guests, but they can turn your vision for the day into reality with styling help and on-the-day coordination. They offered clear pricing and were flexible and fair in achieving a tailored package that included what we needed and not what we didn't.
From the beginning Anika made it clear that excellent service was their priority, and that came through early on via our many phonecalls, skypes and emails. I had a big vision for the day - Adam and Anika were superb in pulling it all together and keeping multiple vendors moving in and out of a small space with minimum fuss on a tight timetable.
With all this background stuff going on, they were still there smiling behind the bar, serving up their impressive Moscow Mules and Pimms Cups. Plus they're just a cool, laid back couple so it's a pleasure to include them in the lead up to and during what was such an important day for us. I would definitely recommend The Canavan to anyone who wants a premium vintage caravan bar for an event and to anyone planning a party who still wants to be in control of the style and planning but needs a sounding board for ideas and to confidently hand over control of the run sheet on the day."

"Adam and Anika were fantastic to work with for our wedding. We made the decision to make our wedding alcohol-free, which was a decision that seemed bold and daunting at times. However, the Canavan crafted a menu and vibe for our reception that was better than any boring open bar. With strawberry granitas and fresh lemon, lime and bitters flowing freely, our guests slipped into party mode whilst enjoying the relaxed vibe.
We were lucky to have Adam style our reception venue. Styling a barn is no easy feat, but working off just a few inspiration photos we had collected, Adam weaved his magic and worked with the natural elements to create the perfectly understated, organic and rustic vibe that we dreamed of. His years of experience definitely shine through and delegating this task is worth every penny.
The Canavan team are a breeze and pleasure to work with - friendly, imaginative, professional and reliable. We want everyone to experience a perfect wedding too, so we highly recommend the Canavan team to anyone planning their big day!"
