Weddings Are Back!

Finally, we have been able to provide tableware to some small weddings & it feels so good!
We realise it’s not going to be anywhere near normal for quite some time, however seeing wedding reception set ups & very happy brides this last two weekends has made us very happy!



Your Wedding & Coronavirus – What you Need to Know

Weddings and Coronavirus

We are here to help at this incredibly trying time both emotionally & practically.

If your wedding was due to take place during the last few months or in the next few months, don’t be disheartened – it will happen! When you finally get to say ‘I Do’ & celebrate with all those who are dear to you, the wait will make it all the more special.

We have moved bookings to next year & to 2022 for couples who were due to tie the knot this year.

We are holding bookings from October this year in the hope that the virus will abate & winter weddings will take place. However if this doesn’t happen we will move the bookings as and when we are asked.

We are taking new bookings for 2021 & 2022 & remain flexible should the goal posts get moved once more.

We just want to reassure everyone that may need to hire crockery, cutlery, glassware & linens that we are here for you…we will work with you and remain as flexible as flexible can be, to ensure you have everything you could possibly need on your tables when the time to celebrate finally comes!

What a party it will be!!

Soft Drinks Dispensers Are Just The Job

Drinks Dispensers Wedding Bar

There are so many delicious variations on soft drinks available theses days, including flavoured waters & mocktails. We think this is a great idea, having a refreshment table to keep all your guests hydrated!

Cucumber & mint, ginger beer & elderflower, homemade lemonade or lemongrass & ginger cordial to name but a few or how about an iced tea…. What’s your favourite thirst quencher?
