Are you looking for a vintage crockery hire company for your wedding? – well here is a list of all the companies out there that have contacted me because they hire out vintage crockery and props and help with styling to make sure you have the perfect vintage party!
1. Savoir Wedding- Events and Styling
Think vintage tea party, English country garden, French ‘shabby chic’. “We’ve got an ever increasing range of vintage and vintage inspired wedding props from tea sets to mismatched bottles, from napkins to bunting . Chances are, if it’s a vintage chic wedding you want we’ve got the perfect prop.” According to Josie they’ve got enough mismatched tea cups and saucers, cake plates and other tea party essentials for a wedding or party of 50 guests.

2. My Vintage Party
Laura was one of the first people that I met in the wedding industry when I started blogging, and I even covered her very own wedding on LMW, Laura’s vintage wedding. I have featured Lola, her vintage caravan for hire, so I thought that I would let you know about the main part of her business, My Vintage Party. Laura loves all things vintage so its no surprise that she set the company up, hiring out everything from crockery, cutlery, glassware and accessories. Beautiful quintessentially english pieces from English Potteries, check it all out on her site, My Vintage Party Love that photo by Sarah Vivienne Photography, infact there are a whole load of gorgeous photos in this post.
3. The Vintage Table
Next on my list is The Vintage Table who nudged me into writing this post (and also sent me those lovely photos above of their cups, saucers and vintage goodies for hire). Claire who runs it is based in London and she provides beautiful vintage English crockery for parties and events in and around London (though they can deliver further afield for a charge). A lot of the crockery is from the 1950s which is perfect for a pretty vintage wedding. “We have an eclectic mix of crockery so that we can help customers to create the look they are aiming for. The range is diverse – we have everything from art deco through to the retro Homemaker.” For more information check out the site, The Vintage Table
4. The English Tea Party
The English Tea Party is , according to Victoria Moy, The original vintage crockery and accessories hire company, established in 2006, from her Grade II listed farmhouse in Devon. It started like all small business as a venture to help supplement the family income, now TETP – is a full time business with a team of four! They pride themselves on being a truly quintessential emporium of English vintage; from vintage tea cups to cake stands, teapots to tea plates – the extensive range of accessories embraces a mix of vintage and country style with a contemporary feel. They hire out their beautiful vintage collections for weddings, garden parties, birthdays, christenings, baby showers, corporate events – with a corporate client list including Christian Louboutin, Elizabeth Arden, Endemol TV – Big Brother, Vogue and Stella McCartney to name but a few! I love this photo that they sent me of their collection. I really like their website too, be sure to check it out, The English Tea Party and if you’re living in Dubai then you can even hire from them there too.
5. Roses all Over
Roses all Over is a Sussex based vintage china/prop hire and styling service, run by friends Rosie and Katie. They only supply the ‘real thing’ so genuine vintage china and props (everything is original no reproductions). They want to encourage as many people as possible to consider antique/vintage options instead of buying new, and they support the Antiques are Green campaign, helping to promote the green hallmark of antiques. Roses all Over work direct with the bride and with event planners and caterers, be sure to check out their site Roses all Over. I also love these photos which were taken by photographer, Debs Ivelja – I think I need to feature some of her weddings as her blog,
