Let Big Shot bring the vintage vibes to your special day, serving up all your favourite drinks in style!

Getting married? Our immaculately restored 1969 Citroen H van ‘Bernie’ would love to be invited, and bring his classic French charm to share with all your guests!

The Big Shot team can offer a complete Bar and Café service for your special day, including bartenders, baristas, personalised drinks menu, glassware, lawn games, furniture, and of course, our charismatic van, Bernie. 

We operate as a BYO bar service, so all we ask is that you purchase and provide the alcohol to us on location, and we'll take care of everything else. Our team of hand picked, experienced staff will bring the party to you and your guests, serving up all of your favourite drinks and mixing up any cocktails of your choice.

When it comes to weddings, we understand there’s no ‘one size fits all’, so we’re always happy to work with you to customise the type and level of service for your wedding day depending on your needs. If you're just after a short coffee service following the wedding ceremony, we can do that too!

If you’re looking to wow your guests with a unique drinks service on your wedding day or engagment party, get in touch so we can lock in Bernie for your requested dates!

Questions and Answers

What is included with your café hire packages?

Big Shot Cafe and Bar

Bernie has been kitted out less like a typical coffee van, and more like a Melbourne café on wheels. Our café hire packages are a great option if you're looking for a quick coffee service straight after your ceremony, to keep you and your guests well caffienated into the night!

What is included with your wedding bar package?

Big Shot Cafe and Bar

When booking Bernie for a wedding, our base bar package  includes: 3 hours service time for up to 100 guests, 2 x RSA qualified bartenders, our beautiful Citroen van Bernie, glassware, liquor licence application (if applicable), personalised drinks menu, generator hire, ice for service, bar equipment and setup and packdown time. There are a number of optional extras that can be added to this, such as: additional service time, cocktails, coffees and additional staff.

Feel free to get in touch if you'd like us to prepare a quote tailored to your needs.

Can Big Shot provide the alcohol?

Big Shot Cafe and Bar

All of our events operate on a BYO basis (except for cocktails).

We ask that all alcohol for the event is provided by the event organiser, venue, catering company, third party organiser or by the client. We also ask that beers, ciders, white wines and sparkling is stored in a cool room/fridges to ensure they are cold and ready for service when we arrive.

If cocktail service is requested for your booking, we will purchase and bring all of the spirits, liqueurs, mixers, garnishes, syrups, glassware and other ingredients required for your cocktail selections. These costs will be included within our cocktail package, and will depend on the types of cocktails and quantity required.

How big is Bernie, and how much space does he need to operate?

Big Shot Cafe and Bar

Bernie is a big boy, measuring 5m long x 2m wide x 2.2m high.

We need a minimum clear space of 7m length x 5.5m wide x 2.5m height to set up/operate within. This allows for sufficient space for all of our doors/hatches to open, additional supply space on the right side of van, and enough circulation space for guests to congregate around the left side of the van where the service hatch opens from.

Where is Big Shot located?

Big Shot Cafe and Bar

We’re based in Brunswick East in Victoria, and are more than happy to travel out to the country. That’s why we put our business on wheels after all! For bookings, our standard package includes up to an hour of travel time from Melbourne CBD. Any additional travel time over that hour will be charged per hour, or part there of - at $160 per hour

Review this supplier

Nothing short of an amazing experience with the Big Shot team. From beginning to end, the experience was positive, insightful and their recommendations and willingness to make our special day just made the whole journey so much easier during the hard wedding planning. Leading up to the day and the day itself, the team provided a great service, fair pricing and made a mean espresso martini. Having the styled caravan bar at our wedding with smiling and helpful staff made such a great experience for our guests, wouldn't have been able to do it without them. We would recommend Big Shot for any event your thinking of hosting- as they will work with you and make it what you want. It was am absolute pleasure and we wouldn't recommend looking anywhere else, save yourself the time researching other suppliers - Big Shot has it all. Thanks so much Big Shot!

Mike and the Big Shot Bar were brilliant at our wedding! The communication and planning prior was thorough and ensured everything was smooth sailing on the day. The service on the day was the best you could ask for - I heard many compliments about the bar service. And of course the van looked incredible! We had a mix of cocktails and standard drinks and nothing was too hard. Thank you Mike and the team!
