Cecil On Ice wedding pack

How it works

Hire Cecil for just £220, this acts as our appearance fee and once paid secures your date. We will never book more than one event for a day so you have us for as long or as little as you like. You then simply decide what services you would like from us. We can simply serve ice cream to your guests, or do ice cream and coffee and tea, or you can choose to have the whole repertoire of what we offer and let us cover ice cream, cocktails and coffee and tea.

Ice Cream

As a working ice cream van we always stock three traditional flavours of luxury Cornish Moomaids Of Zennor Ice cream. We charge £2.20 per ice cream and this can be tallied up on the day, as and when people order.

If you wanted something a little special in flavouring then we can order in some unique flavours. Some flavours made in the past include (Champagne Sorbet, Aperol Sorbet, and Turkish Delight Ice Cream) These incur an extra charge as they are especially made.


Start from £6.00, We have our totally unique ice cream cocktail menu which you can download below. However, we also create bespoke menus for your event, so let us know if you have anything particular in mind. We also make a mean G & T or as we call it a T & T (Tarquins Gin and Fevertree Tonic). With a range of garnishes for £4.00 per drink.

Coffee & Tea

We now have added a coffee machine to our list of services. We can serve freshly ground Cornish coffee at the push of a button. We can offer, Cappuccino, Latte, Espresso, Americano and a good old fashioned cup of tea.

Cocktail Bar Options

Would you prefer a simple cash bar? Just like any normal bar your guests pay for each drink. We provide a bespoke menu built around your tastes, served by smartly dressed WSET trained staff.
