A great photograph is one that captures the feeling and energy of a moment, and the best way to create a photo-worthy moment is to set the right stage and build a great vibe. The VW bus is an iconic symbol that brings back a time when macrame and 8-tracks were the mark of modernity.
The Long Weekend Bus is a refurbished 1974 Volkswagen Kombi in Toronto that travels from party to party as a photo booth, a photography prop, and a really, really cool mode of transportation.
Like a lot of people, we fell in love with the idea of having a VW bus as an alternative to traditional photo booths for our own parties and events, but we learned really early on in our research that there weren’t a lot of economically friendly options. Instead of spending $1800 on a transportation rental for one day, we decided to buy one ourselves, give it a face lift and rework it under the hood, and rent it out as a cost-effective option so small businesses and couples getting married don’t have to choose between renting a bus and breaking the bank. We’re helping countless guests slip into a photo-ready state of mind with our classically cool bus backdrop, and have given events an awesomely boho touch with our vintage inspired photography.

Renting the VW Bus in Toronto and Central Ontario
We try to make renting the bus as simple as possible. We have a list of our offered services on the site, but we’re more than happy to answer any additional questions you have about the process. Simply send us an e-mail and we’ll get back to you within three business days with information and a quote (it’s usually more like within the same business day, but we say three just to be safe). If you already know your event date, we can let you know right away whether or not it’s already booked.
If you want the bus for your event, we’ll provide a contract for your review and upon receiving your deposit, we blackout the date and it’s yours!
TLW is a registered business that’s both fully licensed and insured. If renting for the purpose of transportation, the Long Weekend team will play chauffeur to ensure your party has a relaxing journey and arrives to your destination safely.

We have details on all of our services listed here, but here’s a brief overview of what we can do for you:
We’ll set up the bus at your event with our photo booth so your guests can go home with a picture with a perfectly hippie touch.
Our VW bus acts as a boho limo for weddings, proms, or any other big day you have coming up.
Doing a magazine editorial? Music video? Engagement shoot? Wedding photos? We’ll bring the bus to use in any type of shoot, commercial or private.
Don’t have the room for the bus? You can still take advantage of one of the most bad ass photo booths in the GTA: The Long Weekend’s Hashtag Photo Booth.
About the Owner
The Long Weekend Bus is owned by Nicki Lamont-Cholfe, a 9-5er and DIYer who would much, much rather be in the bus than be at work (which is probably why she’s always in such a good mood while working events with The Long Weekend). We know the importance of a good event vendor, so we make sure that each and every wedding, party, and corporate gathering we work is as good as our best.
Whether you’re looking for a way to make your wedding extra memorable or you’re simply trying to avoid throwing a cookie cutter event, The Long Weekend provides options that’ll suit any party’s style. Shoot us an e-mail and let’s set up an adventure!
