  • In order to secure your booking, a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the estimated total cost will be required. I am happy to provisionally hold your date for up to two weeks with no obligation to book, to give you time to decide without the pressure of letting your date get away! However, after this time period the date will be open for other bookings if a deposit has not been received.
  • Once the deposit has been paid, the date is yours! Then, 4 weeks prior to the event, I will ask for final details and the remaining balance will be taken, along with a £50 damages deposit.
  • The damages deposit will be refunded as soon as the items have been safely returned back and checked over. Please note that the damages deposit may not cover the entire value of the items hired (depending on what’s been hired, for example it wouldn’t cover the value of the bike) and you may be liable to further costs should the hired item go missing. (Please ask me for further information) It is very unlikely that items go missing or become damaged, and if they do, I only charge cost and deal with it in a professional and fair manner.
  • You, as the hirer, are responsible for the damage costs regardless as to who is at fault (i.e if the venue or a guest has damaged an item)
  • The hire period is for 2 days unless otherwise agreed (usually drop off on the morning of the event and collected the next day)
  • To Love and To Cherish Vintage cannot be held responsible for any injury or damage caused during the hire period through breakage of equipment or suchlike or any other accident during the hire period. All items hired will be checked over prior to hire to ensure they are in a safe and suitable condition.
  • The hire of China is on the understanding that it cannot be placed in a microwave or dishwasher – simply remove any food or liquid and leave the washing up to me!
  • I offer a free delivery and collection service within 10 miles of Sabden for orders of £50+ (unless otherwise agreed). Mileage will then be charged at 50p per mile. For orders less than £50, mileage will be charged at 50p per mile from Sabden

FAQs

All of my China is in beautiful Vintage condition, and made only in England. Although I do try, it is difficult to get complete sets, particularly for large events like a Wedding.  I personally love mixing and matching the wide array of beautiful designs, choosing colours to complement each other and bring the room together. I can offer a variety of colour schemes, or try and blend the designs in with your theme by choosing appropriate patterns. If however you would like matching china, and are hosting a smaller event, then this might be possible – please get in touch to discuss.

We usually deliver your hired items on the morning of the event, and then collect the following day, the total hire period being for 2 days. We do try to be flexible with this where possible so please get in touch to discuss options.

I understand that you will be looking after your hired goods, as will your venue and all your guests. It is very rare that I have any issues, but if something does get damaged or go missing, then I just deduct the amount from your pre paid damages deposit. Please don’t let this worry you, I don’t make a fuss and will definitley be fair. Alot of people get worried about the Vintage China breaking, but honestly it is much more hard wearing than many modern designs. The damages deposit is charged for 4 weeks prior to your event, and is £50. This should be more than enough to cover any damage, however in some cases an additional payment might be chargeable. Your damages deposit will be refunded to you as soon as the goods have been received back and checked over. Please be aware that you, as the hirer, will be responsible for the cost of repair/replacement of goods, even if it is the venue, guest or suchlike who is at fault.

To Love and To Cherish Vintage is based in Sabden, Nr Clitheroe. I offer the first 10 miles of delivery and collection free of charge for orders of £50+. I am more than happy to deliver further afield but do charge 50p per mile, above the 10 miles. For orders less than £50, mileage is charged at 50 pence per mile.

The Venue Dressing packages really are value for money. Right from the beginning, your ideas are listened to and we work together to create your vision. I will then deliver and set everything up for you, and collect everything back the next day. The China (if you choose this package) is all hand washed by myself too. I try to give you as much as I can, adding personalised touches to make it truly unique. Table Centrepieces, Top Table dressing, Cake table and Gift table dressing, and afew other personal touches around the venue are included, or why not upgrade by adding in the vintage bone china trios for each place setting.

Unfortunately I do not allow you to collect/return the goods directly. This is simply to avoid any accidents from happening, and so that the pressure and responsibility is all on me. Look on the positive side – it’s one less thing for you to have to think about!

FAQs

All of our China is Vintage, and although we do try, it is difficult to get complete sets, particularly for large events like a Wedding.  However, we find one of the appealing qualities of using Vintage China is the wide array of beautiful designs. A truly Vintage look is achieved by mixing and matching those beautiful designs.  We think that the mixed patterns we supply actually enhance the appearance and will help to make your event even prettier. Although, if you are hosting a smaller event and would like a matching set this might be possible, please get in touch to discuss.

When ordering a set (ie Tea Cup, Saucer and Side Plate) a matching set will be sent where possible.

We usually deliver your hired items on the morning of the event, and then collect the following day, the total hire period being for 2 days. We do try to be flexible with this where possible so please get in touch to discuss options.

We understand that you will be looking after your hired goods, as will your venue and all your guests, but accidents and losses can happen. We rarely have these issues, but when we do we don’t make a fuss, we simply ask that you inform us of any breakages/missing items upon collection and we will charge appropriately. A damages deposit of £50 is taken prior to the event, which should cover the repair or replacement of the goods. However, some of our goods are worth a lot more, so in some cases an additional payment might be chargeable. Please be aware that you, as the hirer, will be responsible for the cost of repair/replacement of goods, even if it is the venue, guest or suchlike who is at fault.

We are based in Sabden, and will deliver orders over £50 for free within a 10 mile radius.  We are happy to deliver further afield and any locations more than 10 miles away will incur an charge of 50p per mile, above the 10 miles.

For just 50p extra per setting, you can have the piece of mind that I will be setting up your vintage bone china. Not only will this avoid any stress or added pressure on the day of your event, but it will avoid any accidents and ensure that your place settings are all coordinated beautifully. I can also help with other aspects of venue dressing, whether its as little as decorating glass jam jars to fit with your theme, to as much as placing favours and setting up your table centerpieces’. If you need help, then just ask and we can come to an arrangement! I have plenty of experience of setting up events so you can be rest assured your venue will look beautiful!

Unfortunately we do not allow you to collect/return the goods directly to/from us. This is simply to avoid any accidents from happening, and so that the pressure and responsibility is all on us. We do offer a free delivery service*, please see the delivery charges FAQ for more details.
