I adore the vintage style and running Forget-me-not Vintage enables me collect and
work with beautiful vintage pieces every day. When planning our own vintage-themed
wedding in 2009 I was unable to find a local vintage china hire company to supply
the pretty tableware I so longed for, so Forget-me-not
Vintage was born. I spent a year scouring charity shops, secondhand stores, antiques
centres and auctions, collecting all the pieces needed for the perfect vintage wedding
table and then tentatively launched this website in the hope that other lovers-of-vintage
could benefit from my hard sourcing. It transpired I was not alone in my passion
for vintage tableware and since its early days Forget-me-not Vintage has gone from
strength to strength bringing vintage-inspired beauty to weddings and tea parties
across the nation.
Originally based in London, Forget-me-not Vintage spread vintage prettiness across
the capital, servicing weddings, parties and corporate functions for some of London’s
biggest companies. The demand for vintage china hire grew and so did my collection,
resulting in me leaving my career in publishing and relocating to a pretty Dorset
village, allowing me the time and space to grow this special business further.
As one of the original vintage china hire companies, Forget-me-not Vintage now boasts
an impressive collection of the very finest pieces of vintage china coupled with
a wealth of vintage-styling experience. Having collected my pieces over a number
of years, I can afford to be very selective over the items that make it into my collection.
I have personally sourced and selected only the most authentic pieces to form the
collection and I would be delighted to share my collection with you and help you
to create your dream vintage occasion.
The collection is based in Dorset but we are always happy to travel further afield.
As well as china, tableware and accessory hire Forget-me-not Vintage offers vintage-inspired
wedding accessories, a styling service and beautiful, unique pieces for purchase
from our shop. We can cater for any event from a romantic picnic for two, to an afternoon
tea for two hundred guests.
In this age of austerity the vintage theme has proved a hugely popular and environmentally
friendly recycling solution to dressing venues and tables, whatever the occasion.
These stunning little pieces of English history, long tucked away in cupboards across
the country have been reunited by
Forget-me-not Vintage, in a celebration of vintage chic.
I would be delighted to discuss the individual requirements of your special event,
so please don’t hesitate to get in touch regardless of the size or location of your
event. You can also share in my vintage event expertise and pick up handy hints and
tips on vintage styling by following our blog.
