We just love chatting with wedding stylists!! They have such a beautiful insight into a couple’s Wedding and get involved in so many different aspects of the special day.
Whether you are looking for someone to help you every step of the way or are simply looking for a local business that can assist you with a range of hire items so you can do it yourself we think dream.hire.design in Canberra will have something to offer every couple as they embark on the Wedding journey.
We took some time this week to speak with dream.hire.design owner, Renee, to find out a little more about the products and services they have available to lovely bespoke brides in the Canberra region.
dream.hire.design is just one of the amazing vendors you’ll be able to meet with at the upcoming Canberra Bespoke Bride Wedding Fair to be held on Sunday 26th March…
Can you tell us a bit about Dream Hire Design and how the business came about?
dream.hire.design is a small business run by my hubby and myself. We specialise in rustic/vintage/old wares hire items and styling. We offer two services, a “DIY hire service” or a “we come and style for you” service.
dream.hire.design came about after our wedding. My hubby and I wanted a rustic/vintage wedding but at the time no companies catered for this style so we made/purchased all our styling items. I have a background in design and event management so after our wedding I thought this would be a great little business to fill the missing gap in the market. Within months word of mouth saw the business grow at a rapid pace, three years later we are booked out most weekends and can push out up to ten hire orders a weekend.
Where are you based and what areas do you service?
Canberra. We service Canberra and it surrounds.
What sort of pieces can couples hire from you?
EVERYTHING! We have everything you need from your ceremony to reception, lawn games, lolly bars, drink stations, crockery, props, signs, everything lol.
For those who love your pieces how can they hire them?
We have an info page on our website with all the info customers need to know about hiring http://www.dreamhiredesign.com/how-to-hire but all they need to do is either email or give us a call. If a customer would like to view the item we have a studio located at our house where people can come and see all our hire items. We are open on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon between 5.30-7.00pm. A booking does need to be made but can be done easily over email or phone.
Do you have a favourite piece among your collection that you just adore?
I love our vintage suitcase collection (I have been put on a ban from buying anymore lol)
What inspires you when it comes to selecting your pieces?
Difference. Our range is full of items you can’t just buy in the shops. We dig antique shops and swap meet to get our hands on items that make a statement. My hubby also makes/up-cycles a lot of our pieces.
How early should couples book in for your styling services?
At least 9-12 months out. We book up super quickly, especially in peak wedding season.
What advice do you have for brides when they are working out their wedding design style when it comes to props and styling?
Pick a theme and stick with it. Less is more sometimes also, you don’t need to include everything you see on Pinterest in your wedding.
What do you love most about styling weddings?
Making peoples visions come to life. I love knowing that the Bride and Groom will walk into either their ceremony or reception and be amazed by the styling they have choose and the finished product.
When you’re not styling weddings what do you love to spend your time doing?
Hanging out with my 1 year old twin boys and hubby. Making / finding new items for the business and working on our house.
For 2016/2017 what sort of trends do you think there will be with wedding styling?
Lots of greenery and simple styling, the whole less is more look.
