All the Pretty Extras

We've collected some wonderful props & pretties over the years, and these we have around and about our rustic venue for our Bride & Grooms to make use of, with our compliments. We've also added a few special extras to our range of lovely stuff, which we happily hire out to our Couples at very reasonable rates.

Wooden Tables & Chairs ~ 
We can provide plenty of handmade vintage wooden tables & chairs to seat all your wedding guests within the marquee, in the Dell or even up on the Terrace. There are also extra tables for arranging food & drinks such as an Afternoon Tea or a Buffet, or for your caterer to make good use of. Once you have settled on a table plan, we make sure that the tables & chairs are set up and ready for your arrival when you are free to dress as you wish.

Floral Seat Cushions ~ 
We are really pleased to be able to offer these lovely floral seat cushions this season. They have all been lovingly handmade from a mix of floral fabrics especially for our wooden chairs. They not only make the chairs that little more comfy but compliment beautifully with our own pretty bunting. They really do finish off the perfect vintage look in the marquee. There are also pretty napkins to match which you are welcome to use at the table, or even as sweet ‘tears of happiness’ hankies at your ceremony.

Heartwarming Firepit ~ 
Beautifully handmade in Wales, our firepit has proven a great hit with couples wishing to provide warmth as well as ambience to their celebration. The firepit will be cleared & clean, ready on the Terrace for you and your guests to enjoy later in the evening.

A Stack of Firewood ~ 
We are able to provide you with firewood if you are unable to find your own. Firewood is expensive, so we're also happy for you to provide your own, even in the form of dry, broken up pallets, which works perfectly well for an outdoor rustic fire

Uplighting for Trees & Extra Festoon Lighting ~ 
There will be some festoon lighting already included in your booking, running across the front of the barn, along the front & inside of the marquee and up on the Paddock ~ but it really does look lovely and offers a real wow factor as the night falls, to add that finishing touch of uplighting the woodland and some extra festooning. 

Straw Bales ~ 
We can organise a set of straw bales to be set up for you on the Terrace, for when your guests arrive. They really help create that rustic look and perfect for pretty photo opportunities. Coupled with our vintage blankets, they make for lovely seating for when your guests and are especially lovely for gathering guests around the fire later in the evening. 

Jars with tealights ~ 
If you would like lots of pretty jars with tealights to add even more sparkle to your celebration, we can provide you with plenty for you to light outside and on tables in the marquee. There are approx. 150 glass jars in various shapes & sizes, ready with tealights, for you to use. 

Bunting ~
We have 100's of metres of beautiful bunting which comes in an array of vintage colours and patterns which go well with any outdoor wedding style. We hang this mainly in the marquee, so you don’t have to bother with the long difficult task yourselves of manhandling ladders and getting it all into place on your own Prep Day.

Blankets ~
We can provide a lovely big bundle of blankets, a mix of mainly hand crocheted, with a few tartans and woollens thrown in. These are great for dressing the bales, protecting legs against straw prickles and for a little extra warmth in the evening. 

Vintage China ~ 
Over the years, we have sourced some lovely vintage china. Our collection includes plenty of pretty cups & saucers and tea plates for your guests to enjoy an Afternoon Tea, with a great selection of tiered stands & cake plates to serve your own delicious delights from. There are also pretty vintage sugar bowls & milk jugs for you to borrow, with a couple of teapots & cafetieres too.

Enamel Jugs & Vintage Glass Vases ~
We have a very pretty selection of jugs & vases which you are welcome to make use of for your own flowers, and the enamel jugs can also be used for serving drinks. The vases are all vintage glassware, of various designs & sizes, but all very pretty. The enamel jugs are beautifully handpainted with a floral design. If you are thinking of dressing the tables with your own floral displays, these pretty jugs & vases make the job simple but to great effect. There’s also a lovely selection of pretty bowls in both the painted enamel & vintage glass which you are welcome to use for sugar, sweets, olives etc, to compliment your setting.

If there is anything else you are particularly looking for, let me know and I will do my best to source it for you.

    1. Thanks Rachael ~ we've built up quite the collection over the years, but I'm always adding to it with lovely old things I come across at auctions & markets. On the hunt for some great tin baths & wool rugs this Summer.
