If you are wanting to look at styling & set-up options for your wedding we recommend scheduling a one-on-one session. This is a 60-minute appointment where we go over your style and overall requirements, offer styling and overall advice and then draw up a full quote for your wedding from this, working out exactly what you need, how much of each and so forth.
Please note our consultations are for clients who are at the stage of wanting to book hire and services. If you are not at this stage yet, we recommend popping in to chat to us during our opening hours.
