A perfect backdrop in old school playgrounds

A couple rented our bike yesterday for their wedding photo shoot. So exciting! They wanted to go for a retro feel – that means old school coffee shops, toast and eggs, old relics and other nostalgic elements from yesteryear.

In the end they picked one of our favourite spots for a few shots – an old-school dragon playground from a bygone era. It’s one of the last few of such playground structures still standing! How many of you remember sliding down this dragon head slide and feeling absolutely terrified? We do! It was a great time of simplicity and childish delight. We are definitely not fond of the new-age playgrounds, with their shiny, brightly coloured and modern contraptions – but that’s a debate for another day.

We super love how cute our vintage white bike looks at this playground. It definitely added a quaint and romantic touch to the shoot, don’t you think? Imagine what you can do with our bike and a little creativity! :)

We are so happy for the lovely couple! May they have a beautiful and magical wedding :)

Transport is now available!

We are now offering transport services! We realised that some of you have difficulty collecting or returning our bikes (yes, we know it’s a pain!), so we decided to work with another company to provide this for you. If you need this service, a round trip costs $100.

Just to put things in perspective, a 7-seater maxi cab costs about $60, one way.

Of course, we would love for you to use your own mode of transport if you can! Use a bike rack, a van, lorry or truck – whatever you wish! Furthermore, the green bike’s front wheel is detachable, so it can fit into a car’s backseat.

It’s all about making it easier for you, our customers, to achieve the beautiful event you’ve always dreamed about. :)

Freebie!

Do you feel the magic in the air

We adore Christmas. There’s just something magical in the air, isn’t it? The fairy lights, the Christmas cheer, the wintry chill lifting the strands of your hair, Christmas trees at every step, the honey-baked ham and red wine at house parties, whimsical carols… it’s the best season of the year.

Even the rain, pouring in sheets right now, can’t stop this feeling of tranquility.

Now this is what we’d love to do to our bikes –

Maybe next year?

Or you could do it, if you rent our wheels :)

Until then, Merry Christmas to everyone, we wish you every happiness!

Add a bike to your shoot for a touch of charm

I’ve always had an obsession with lower body shots, back views, top down and wide faraway shots –  basically anything that doesn’t show the frontal face. It just seems more quaint and nostalgic, more tender and melancholic.

Of course, it only helps if your thighs are stick thin (mine are noticeably not).

When you add bikes to the foray, it manages to add an even greater touch of enchanting charm, transforming your shoot into something ten times more romantic.

Now these photos below, they are a work of art. Don’t they just make you go “Awwww”?

We are pretty sure you can emulate these, or better yet, unleash your own creativity to create your own spectacular shots. Rent our bikes (see below) to do that now :)

Our dutch bike is a mini-celebrity!

Don’t look now, but our pretty white dutch bike had a few seconds of fame when it got a cameo in local singer-busker Kelvin Tan Wei Lian’s MTV (分岔口) back in 2012!

It appeared in the first few seconds of the video, and was ridden by homegrown singer Kelly Poon – with a fresh bouquet of yellow daisies to boot!

Rent Dutchie now if you want to feel like a star :)

Camera ready, always!

This white dutch sits prettily everywhere, whether it is on gravel –

Say “I do”, with a bicycle

Check out this lovely blog post from an American cyclist-blogger about Weddings and Bicycles – http://lovelybike.blogspot.sg/2011/04/on-weddings-and-bicycles.html

To quote her:

“Increasingly, bicycles and weddings are becoming an iconic combination – seen on wedding photographer and bicycle manufacturer websites alike.

What is it about weddings and bicycles? There is, of course, the ever-popular Daisy Bell song, which keeps the association alive. Plus, the start of “cycling season” corresponds with the start of “wedding season.” And while I put these in quotation marks, because both getting married and riding a bicycle are things that can be done year-round, any wedding photographer and bicycle shop owner will tell you that they get most of their business in April through October.

Spring symbolises renewal, optimism, and a fresh start – which is appealing to cyclists and newlyweds alike.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

While you’re at it, check out her post on His and Hers bikes as well – http://lovelybike.blogspot.sg/2010/09/his-and-hers-bicycles-matching-looks-vs.html
