What started as a love of all things vintage, has evolved into a thriving family run business who absolutely love what we do! The story began a few years ago when Tori was getting married to Stef, they both had their hearts set on a relaxed, rustic vintage tea party. Rather than hiring they decided to collect their own range of stunningly beautiful vintage china. Following their wedding they decided to hire it out and so Keeping It Vintage was born. Since then, Tori's sister Tracy has joined the business handling most of the day-to-day operations. We both have different tastes and ideas and so it has helped to evolve a range of hire items that suit many themes and styles. We aim to be bang on with the latest wedding industry trends and as such are attracting clients from all over the UK. Due to demand, we are now offering a full styling service for clients that hire from us We are more than happy to welcome clients to visit our storage unit in our lovely village to style tables and play around with ideas, all we ask is that you contact us first to make an appointment. For clients that live further afield, we will happilet liaise by email or telephone to discuss your requirements and share photographs with you upon request. We are extremely lucky to work with a large number of other talented, professional wedding industry specialists and will happily recommend if required. We love a challenge, especially if it's something a bit out of the ordinary, so if you are desperate to hire something for your big day and you are having trouble tracking it down, it's always worth contacting us to discuss. If it's something we feel we can hire again, we will happily source items for you. So contact us today to discuss your requirements. During busy times we are not always available on the telephone, but leave us a message or send an email and we will endeavour to get back to you ASAP Best wishes from the Keeping It Vintage team, Tori, Tracy, Stef & Carol
