2: Bookings and payment
We accept credit card, cheques or bank transfers (BACS).
We do not ask for a damage deposit for the chair covers and other unbreakable items. However, if after your event any of the hire items are damaged beyond repair we will send an invoice to cover our costs.
We ask for a £50 damage deposit on all glassware hired, including our sweet buffet. This will be returned after your wedding or event providing nothing has been damaged.
As soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We only accept a few weddings a week so we can retain the high quality of our work. For this reason we get booked up early for popular dates around 18 months in advance.
28 days before your wedding date we will contact you to check on final numbers and send you an invoice. Payment in full is required 21 days prior to your wedding or event.
No. As we are a small business we are not VAT registered.
We cover weddings in Cumbria and Lancashire within approximately a 50 mile driving distance from Kendal, including the Lake District, Ambleside, Appleby, Barrow-in-Furness, Bowness-on-Windermere, Carlisle, Cartmel, Grange, Kendal, Keswick, Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancaster, Morecambe, Penrith, Ulverston and Windermere.
We know how important it is to have everything perfect for your wedding day. We are the venue decoration company of choice for many of the top hotels and wedding co-ordinators throughout Cumbria and Lancashire and we are passionate about our work.
Carla is a trained set designer (having work on films such as Harry Potter and Nine) and loves nothing better than to transform a space in to something magical! Catherine is a seamstress among other things, and we design and hand-make many of our items ourselves, so they are totally unique. We can offer a full design service, including the creation of table plans, place names etc. So your whole theme will co-ordinate beautifully.
We have tailored chair covers custom-made for a large number of hotels in the area, even for chairs with arms! We may be a bit perfectionist with the fit of our covers, but we’ve seen many ill-fitting chair covers from other companies, and having one that fits the chair well really does make a big difference. You may find a cheaper quote elsewhere but we can provide you with peace of mind and the best quality products.
Yes we have a studio showroom in Kendal. We are open by appointment only, as we are often out and about setting up weddings. Please contact us to arrange a meeting 🙂
This is a common dilemma and is not a problem. We can call your venue and check the dimensions. As we are local we can also visit the venue with the chair covers to ensure they fit perfectly.
We have chairs covers custom-made for many Lake District hotels (there are some unusual chairs out there!).
Yes. Small changes to numbers can be made up to 28 days before your wedding day, though we need to know 3 months in advance if there is to be a big change in numbers. The final balance will be based on the number of chair covers and hire items you have ordered at this point and changes made within 21 days of your wedding will not be eligible for a refund.
If there is a large drop in chair cover numbers / hire items this may change the original quote.
Our blossom canopy trees, giant LOVE letters and Royal Mail post box are unable to be cancelled once ordered.
Our aim is to offer a flexible service and make it as easy as possible for you to plan your wedding, so you can add hire items to your order as and when you’ve made decisions, subject to availability. The important thing is getting the date saved for you as we only accept a small number of weddings each day.
There are a number of ways. The easiest is to browse our website and add hire items to your quote basket as you go. You can add your personal details and make amendments before submitting for a no obligation quote.

3: On your wedding day
Unless a DIY service is specifically requested, our chair cover hire price includes delivery, set-up and collection by us either the evening before or the morning of your wedding.
We will then arrange a suitable time with you or your venue for collection to ensure a hassle-free service all round.
We will liaise with the venue staff to discuss arrangements, they will usually keep the hire items safe for us until we are able to collect them the following day.
