Helllllo there! So it’s about bloody time I made a formal introduction. This is me, myself and I (aka Charlotte), Chieftess of Handmaid, Mother to Sadie Swoon (although she’s significantly older than me...), lover of compassion, celebration and creativity. I’m that friend that stays in touch with everyone from my childhood (yep, loyal to the core), my older besties are from school (through thick and thin, sick and sin) and remembers birthdays even mothers have forgotten (albeit Facebook stole my superpower). I’ve spent my younger days studying our societies at uni and travelling this beautiful world. I returned home with my imported Irishman and eventually made Kapiti our home and are raising two gorgeous (mostly) children here in an unreal community filled with some of the brightest sparks doing amazing things. #muchblessed
And after many years working as a lawyer (Gasp! Surprises everyone!), I started nurturing my newest baby, Handmaid, to help make it easy for people to celebrate the goodness in their lives.
Me. Nutshell. Hi and stuffy 👋.
Perfect weather for a perfect open day @campdavidfarm . Its been a pleasure working with some amazing talent. If you're looking for a gorgeous wedding venue in country Victoria then look no more, come and see for yourself. Here again Sunday 11-3
We had so much fun on Sunday hosting our first garden to Glass social pop-up! We served four cocktails and a four different dishes that featured produce sourced from the farm that hosted it. We can’t wait to do it again this Sunday! We only have 4 more tickets left so get them while you can! We won’t be hosting another one till the spring!
Want to fancy up a sparkling water for those guests who may want a non-alcoholic drink, or the youngin’s who aren’t of age? Muddle (crush) some berries in the bottom of the glass, add ice, pour in flavored sparkling water and a dash of simple syrup (less or more depending on how sweet you want it), add some mint for garnish, and voila - a refreshing drink anyone can enjoy!
I know some are not fans of sparkling water, but I can almost assure you this will be a hit with everybody! 🍹

I don’t think I’ve ever done a “formal” introduction of the faces behind The Tipsy Caravan. Sooo without further ado...
Hi There! I’m Sarah, and that handsome man next to me is my husband and best friend, Donovan (or just Don). We’ve been together for a little over 9 years, and married for a little over 1 year. I like to say I’m the visionary behind this dream, and he is the man who made (and continues to make) my dream come to life. I’m certain that without his help building Josie (and the fact that he never once doubted my newest crazy idea), I would not have been able to start this new journey. I mean just look at that cute caravan! - it literally is because of my hubs and his amazing building skills.
Josie was the product of a newly wed wife who was having post wedding blues (ahem, me 😬). After planning our own wedding, we realized just how much we LOVED weddings and how great it would be to get to be apart of such special days for others. I had recently fallen in love with these little vintage campers, so putting the two together, I just knew that Oklahoma needed a new and unique way to experience a mobile bar at weddings, parties, and all sorts of events.
With that said, I can assure you that The Tipsy Caravan was not only built with tears and sweat and lots of late nights, but most importantly, an absolutely immense amount of love. We have a love for this caravan that we desire to share with others, we have a love for people and the events that bring their family and friends together, and we most definitely have a love for mixing up some yummy drinks to keep the party going! We hope that you will continue to follow our journey and continue to get to know us. And of course - We hope you will consider booking us for your next event! 💛
We love blue. The best man wore blue at our most recent wedding. If you need a pop up bar for your special celebration Tinker caravan is the perfect solution 🍸 PM for our pricing and availability 🍾#tinkertravels
Whoa what a long weekend! Ceremony set ups, florals galore, client consults and bar service with signature cocktails and Peony the vintage caravan in the hunter valley...and we’re not done yet! Tomorrow we’re heading back out to @waldarafarm in Oberon for another stunning spring wedding. It’s been a busy few days so we’re a bit behind on the the emails...those waiting on a reply, we promise you’ll here from us later this week...in the meantime enjoy this spectacular view from Leanne + Cameron’s ceremony at @jonahswhalebeach on Friday
When a storm rolled over yesterday morning we were all biting our nails as to how this backyard wedding would unfold but what a stunner it turned out to be!! By the time the ceremony kicked off the ☀️ was shining and the yard was transformed into an amazing reception (wish we got a photo of it all finished but we were too busy having fun with everyone 😅) A huge congratulations to Emily & Jason 🥂 we wish you all the best on this new chapter of your lives and thank you for letting us share such a special day with you and your guests 💖
We said goodbye to our little van @thebaravan yesterday, as we passed the baton on to it’s lovely new owners Bek & Jordan, they will be taking her all the way to Darwin so she is gearing up for the road trip of a lifetime!!

Goodbye lovely van, you have taken us to places we would never have seen without you!!
