Tell us a a bit more about Anthology Vintage Hire…
We provide Vintage Chairs, Furniture, Reclaimed Wood Trestle Tables and Rustic props for hire across the UK.
What inspired you to start your business?
We really wanted to hire some old vintage furniture and props for our wedding day but couldn’t find anywhere that did what we wanted nearby. So the idea started there, and a year later we had started the business.
How are you different from any other similar suppliers?
Our furniture has it’s own character and isn’t run of the mill. It is unique and not something you can just hire from anywhere. The service we provide is also paramount. We add a personal touch when arranging bookings, and when delivering.
What do you love most about working in the wedding industry?
Being a part of someone’s big day is a really big deal to us! We feel honoured that we have been chosen by the couple, and don’t take it for granted. Seeing the photos after the wedding is the best part! Knowing that they loved our furniture, and that everyone was happy with the product and service we provided means everything and gives us massive job satisfaction!
What would be your number one piece of advice for a bride to be?
Try not to worry too much! The day will always be amazing, no matter what happens. Try and do what you want, and don’t be swayed by parents and friends too much. It is your big day, so do it your way. It really is a moment in time that you want to cherish for the rest of your life so make the most of it. Try and take half an hour away alone with your loved one so you can take it all in. The day is over in a flash and it’s important to have your own memories to look back on.
Tell us about the best thing you have seen at a wedding you have been to?
Can I say my own!!? After all the soppy speeches, my husband (unbeknown to me!) did the most hilarious speech. He bought the TV from home and rigged it up with a really funny presentation of the family. Everyone was off their seats and huddled round watching and listening, and it was one of the best memories from our wedding!
Finally, in one sentence why should someone choose Anthology Vintage Hire?
Because we really do care about your big day, and want to provide you with a stress free experience and great service.
