I have spent lots of time researching rustic wedding prop hire companies for our wedding and have stumbled across some awesome suppliers that I wanted to share in case anyone else needed help with this!
We are specifically after a vintage whisky/wine barrel bar (the type you constantly see floating around on Pinterest) and some beautiful thin gold or mercury tapered candlesticks and it has turned out to be very hard to find a company that offers both or that is close to our Surrey/Hampshire wedding venue.
I think we will have to go with two separate companies but while we decide, why not check out my favourite rustic/vintage props suppliers who made the shortlist…
I defy you to look through the Nerissa Eve wedding prop brochure and not want everything listed on there! I visited her studio in Market Harborough and it was like going into Aladdin’s treasure cave – there were stacks of wine/whisky barrels, wooden logs, crates, vintage bikes and wheelbarrows downstairs with candlesticks, votives, glasswear, crockery, cake stands and frames upstairs.
Friendly owner Nadine is an artist so can also create table plans, menus and pretty much anything else too. A great all round props company run by a lovely lady!
Bath Vintage Hire
Bath Vintage Hire oozes laid-back cool and would be especially great if you are doing a rustic DIY wedding. I love their reclaimed wooden trestle tables and mis-matched folding wood chairs, their barrel bar, vintage props and the fact that they have a gipsy caravan for hire!
The Little Lending Company
Norfolk based The Little Lending Company is one of the most unique prop hire suppliers that I have come across, with not just the usual crockery, votives and kilner jars but some cool arches for outdoor weddings, statement furniture and antler decorations for the hipsters amongst us. Their website is great for general wedding inspiration too!
I Do Devoted Dreams
I loved I Do Devoted Dreams but sadly can’t order with them as they are based in Kent, the wrong side of London for us. They have props for both vintage and modern weddings, offering some really pretty vintage lawn games, a rose gold wheelbarrow (who knew there was such a thing), rose gold candlesticks (dreamy!), handmade bunting and extras like fairy light backdrops, kilner jars and galvanised watering cans. Their website is really cute too!
Based in West London, Classic Crockery specialise in – you guessed it – vintage crockery! They have some beautiful mismatched vintage cups and saucers as well as enamel crockery, furniture, stepladders and vintage style candle holders (including tapered gold ones which are so hard to find)!
