What kind of things can couples hire from you?

We’re very much a one-stop shop. People can hire everything from event furniture to table linen and glassware. We really do have a vast range, even down to bars and patio heaters for outdoor events.

What advice would you give to couples who need to hire everything, but don’t know where to start?

I would definitely say come and see us. We have 30 years of experience doing this and whether you want to organise a small coffee morning or a wedding in your mum’s back garden, we can give our advice and expertise to help.

Do you work with venues to arrange deliveries or do couples need to do that?

Some people we work with are hosting an event in a field or garden so it isn’t a venue but, if it is a wedding venue for example, we will work with them to arrange specific timings and deliveries.

We also work closely with caterers to make sure that everything is organised. We make sure we cover all the little things you might not have thought about.

Does it have to cost a lot to hire everything for a wedding?

No, definitely not. Every department we service has different ranges that can fit every kind of budget. My advice would be for couples to come and see us first, even just after their engagement, they can tell us what they want and we can use our knowledge and years of experience to help.

Finally, what’s the most impressive event your services have been used for?

Last year we worked on the Dunkertons’ wedding (Superdry and Lucky Onion founder, Julian Dunkerton). That was a really big project.

We also work with Royal International Air Tattoo every year, which is a fantastic event for everyone.
