Our Story

The crazy notion that there would be pleasure and fun in starting another small business, that sold our favourite commodity became reality in 2016. The time had come in life to seek new and exciting ventures and this one fitted the bill perfectly. The brainchild of Anthony & Kerry Decaux, in order to fully understand our journey here is a little about our background(s)

Quirky, vintage, unique and fabulous, just a few of the words to describe our delightful Little Tipple Van. Whether your special occasion is a Wedding, Corporate Event or a Special Occasion bring a totally new concept to it with this Piaggio Ape. Let your guests be amazed and enchanted by this Little Van with a big character.

We are based near Cardiff and the M4 corridor and cover the whole of the UK.

Make yours a sparkling occasion

Prosecco is very much the drink of the moment with its’ sales overtaking Champagne and still growing in its popularity it’s a must for any special occasion. The Little Van Group brings you Glera Frizzante on tap, chilled to perfection for you and your guests to enjoy.

Relax whilst a member of our team serves you a glass (or two) from our lovingly converted little Italian Piagio Ape van. Your guests will be captivated by our little ‘Tippys’ charming character and she’s sure to be a talking point of your occasion.

Tippy has the most up to date dispensing system on board ensuring the drinks she serves are at their best quality. And she can even serve two different drinks at the same time. So if you want a glass of Fizz, Pino Grigio or craft beer as well that’s no problem, just ask!

And just for you to know….Tippys’ Glera Frizzante is made 100% from the Glera grape, produced in the Veneto region following the strictest controls associated with the wine. It was stipulated that only the 75cl bottle could carry the Prosecco label, whilst 20 ltr kegs would be known by the Roman name of the grape, Glera Frizzante . This distinction has no influence on the quality or authenticity of the delicious sparkling wine inside.

So let The Little Van Group greet you and your guests at your venue. We can serve a variety of drinks from a glass of fizz, wine or craft beers. We have a number of options for all occasions, generally Tippie will be at the venue 2-3 hours but we can be longer if required. Please contact us about your special occasion to discuss options. We don’t publish a standard price list as every occasion is different and we like to work with you to tailor Tippie what you want for day so please contact us to discuss what we can do for you.

Anthony – with his main hobby in motor-sport and vehicle customization Anthony has mostly worked in automotive as a sales design engineer. He is amazingly hands on and enjoys nothing more than being covered in engine oil & is often found under his latest project vehicle.

Kerry – with a background in media & marketing Kerry has been a florist for 15 years, she has a natural talent for creating artistic floral masterpieces. She lso runs a successful wedding planning business in South Wales which compliments her boutique florist.

Just seemed so Natural – With Kerry’s experience in weddings, planning, marketing & all things glamorous and sparkly & Anthony’s hands on enjoyment of vehicles The Little Van Group was meant to be. Anthony has designed the layout of the van which is based on the Piaggio Ape & personally completes the conversions himself. He also looks great serving the Prosecco in his apron (yes this is Anthony & Kerry below)

A cute little motor, bespoke and beautiful, being with people when they are having fun and enjoying the on-going pleasure of an endless supply of fizz- what more could you want?

On a serious note though, having committed many wonderful and rewarding years to a fulfilling career in floristry the time had come to try something new that would compliment my existing business.

The birth of “Tippy”

The new addition to our family, affectionately known as ‘Tippy’, arrived on the scene in May 2016.

She is a  three wheeler Piaggio Ape van imported from Italy that has been lovingly and cleverly customized by Anthony to serve as a Prosecco van. She has mixer optics hidden discreetly for those really special occasions and even has the potential to serve beer or cider on tap in addition to the fizz. Dressed in a gentle baby blue colour she is stylish and understated and so tiny that she can squeeze into the smallest of places. With her bags of personality and easy presence she is now starting to venture out to explore the locality and what life has to offer.
