Hi, my name is Kim and this is my husband Peter and my two girls, Tayla and Paige. We are the owners and operators of our gorgeous mobile bar, who we have lovingly named Charlie. It was in 2014 when we were married in Kangaroo Valley that we first came up with the idea of a horse float mobile bar service. Being that we love the country, we were excited about the prospect of converting a horse float. With life and new work commitments it would not be until 2017 until we were able to begin our new venture. We decided to purchase a shiny new horse float and have it converted. We left him white, so that we could customise Charlie to fit any event theme. Over the next year we began working to bring Charlie to life, researching and building our vision from the ground up. We wanted a mobile bar that would provide a high-quality service, a friendly and relaxed country charm, a homely familial atmosphere, a flexible and accommodating disposition, all packaged in a handsome, fun horse float. Operating from our home base up North in beautiful North Macksville, NSW, we are excited to bring the party to you, wherever you are!
I’ve always had a passion for DIY projects and planning for parties and events. I am a trained primary school teacher and marriage celebrant. My hubby, Peter, and I are passionate about travelling and camping, and have been fortunate to have met some really wonderful people in our travels. We both strongly believe that a special connection is made when two strangers sit together and share a drink and a story, be it a cold beer, a glass of wine, a Coke or even just a cuppa. It was through these personal passions and beliefs that our mobile bar dream was born. We found a way to incorporate all the things we loved into one job. We love travelling and sharing Charlie with as many people as possible. We love that we are the reason people come together, and we love that every journey and every event brings opportunities for new friends and new experiences.
My husband Peter, is just an amazing human being. I could be bias but seriously, this man is the bomb! I would drop a vague half-thought out idea in front of him and he’d not only build it, he’d bring it to life and give it a personality of its own. He began with our beautiful wedding decorations, in particular, our LOVE signs. From there we moved on to all the wonderful planned projects we had for Charlie, the bar itself being Peter's most treasured baby (be sure to admire it). His projects are always finished to a standard above and beyond my expectations which is evident when you see Charlie. Everything you see in and around the bar is the result of an idea bought to life, and most where possible, have been made from scratch by hand. We are very proud of Country Cantinas, and we love to talk about all things Charlie, so if you have any questions or just want to share a story, just pull up a stool, get comfortable and we’ll pour you a drink.
Peter and I have absolute adoration for the country and all it has to offer, the landscape, the lifestyle, the charm, the ambience, and the slow, relaxed pace. We spend a lot of time travelling and staying in country areas, often camping and 4 wheel driving in our down time, and so it was really a no-brainer when it came time for us to decide on the name and the theme and look for our mobile bar.
Country Cantinas is a business born from passion and love. Our love for the wedding industry, for working and meeting new people, for enjoying a drink and a yarn, and for the next big adventure. This is what grew our initial idea.
Our goal is to offer a standard of wedding service that upholds the integrity and values expected by our customers, the community, and of course, ourselves. Our mobile bar service has been created to adapt to any special occasion, be it a personal or business event. We aim to offer consistently high levels of service and professionalism while ensuring our presence provides a fun and friendly experience your guests will remember for years to come.
We love to meet with our prospective bride and grooms so that we can discuss in more detail the vision and dreams for their big day. Call or email us using the form above to arrange a no obligation, informal coffee and chat :)
