This beautiful 16" oak tree slice is the latest addition to our props collection and such a wonderful way to display a wedding cake or create a striking table centrepiece if you’re going for a woodland theme.
We put together these table centres using just a few props we had laying around and it really demonstrates how easy and versatile making a rustic display with impact can be!
For more ideas on how this beautiful prop can be used, check out the ‘Wooden Tree Slice’ board on our Pinterest page. https://uk.pinterest.com/HVWeddinghire/wooden-tree-slice/
Note: We have treated our tree slice with butchers block oil so it’s safe to use for displaying your wedding cake or serving other foods such as cured meats & cheese.
We are SERIOUSLY excited to announce that Hampshire Vintage Wedding Hire are official exhibitors at this year’s National Vintage Wedding Fair taking place at Chiswick Town Hall, London on Sunday 13th November.
The National Vintage Wedding Fair was the first of its kind, established in February 2010 and won ‘Best Vintage Wedding Fair’ at The National Vintage Awards.
If coming to see us isn’t enough of an incentive for you, there’ll also be live entertainment with DJs and bands, interactive workshops, “inspiration stations” and a tea room selling delicious cakes (..come on, who can refuse cake!?) – all features which make this a super successful and totally fabulous event!
We’ll be posting more information and updates nearer the time but if you’d like to visit us in November or you’d like a little more information, get in contact or visit www.vintageweddingfair.co.uk
In this week’s throwback Thursday photo, we have our Queen Elizabeth looking just fabulous in her gorgeous wedding dress, worn in 1947. We think she looks every bit the princess with exquisite embroidery detail, star-patterned bridal train… and don’t even get us started on that Tiara!
These little champagne & cupcake themed labels and itineraries were made to accompany the goody-bags for a group of VERY happy hen’s this weekend. We hope you had the most fabulous time Jodie… something tells us there would have been plenty of champagne consumed along with plenty of happy tears (naming no names.. *ahem*.... Tessa Rogers!). x
Happy Monday lovely people! The sun is shining and the birds are tweeting... If you're also into tweeting, follow us on Twitter @HVWeddinghire X
Chalkboards are a fabulously versatile way of creating rustic displays whilst adding a personal touch to your wedding or event. We have a whole range of chalkboards available which could be used as menu boards, order of service, welcome signs, direction signs, photo-booth props, seating plans, dancefloor rules… or if you’re an old romantic, maybe you’d like it to display your favourite love quote?! To make a real feature of your chalkboard, why not dress it up with some floral wreaths & fairy lights.
We’ve added a few photos of some of our chalkboards below and please check out our Pinterest page for more chalkboard-themed ideas & inspiration. If you see something you like, let us know & we’ll do our best to replicate it for you. X
We’re always on the hunt for new items to add to our ever-expanding collection of vintage props & we get such a buzz when we discover these little (or large!) treasures. However, the discovery part is just the beginning.... what we REALLY love is finding something that requires a bit of TLC.
When you embark on any upcycling project it’s not just about skill or patience, but also the quality of the products you’re working with. For example, we absolutely love using Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and adore their beautiful velvety, matt finish. This range of paints offer a colour palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design and we feel they complement our vintage props perfectly.
In addition to the Annie Sloan range, we’re also big fans of Farrow & Ball’s colour palettes – all neutral tones that have a softness neither too cool, nor too warm. These neutral colour groups strike exactly the right balance in terms of restoring our props to a more polished finished but still retaining a suitably aged feel.
As you can see, our little bunting-bee’s been hard at work cutting out these beautiful vintage-inspired lace flags and sewing up a storm… x
Whatever the weather, come rain or shine, Hampshire Vintage Wedding Hire are here to make your wedding day a glorious one that your guests will be truly blown away by.
Our gorgeous vintage props look as beautiful indoors as they do outdoors so rest assured, we won’t let any clouds rain on your parade!
We'll even deliver, set up and collect the props so you don’t have to... it'll be a breeze!
Ok, that's quite enough weather related puns for one post isn’t it. Please *LIKE* and *SHARE* our details - it really would brighten up our day. x
