FAQ

We offer hundreds of beautiful one-a-kind vintage, rustic and vintage furniture, props and decor hire. Helping you to create a unique look that transforms your space and reflects your personality. We are based in rural Somerset and offer both delivery and styling services nationwide.

How long can I hire items for?

We normally hire our items for a 3 day period. So if your event takes place on a Saturday we will deliver your hire items on the Friday and collect either on the Sunday or following Monday. If you’d like to hire items for a longer period that’s fine, just let us know. If you require a piece for less than 3 days then that’s perfectly fine too, but we will still charge for a 3 day period.

Can I collect the smaller items myself?

Yes, no problem! Self collections and returns can be made from our farm in Somerset, Monday to Saturday. Please note only our Small Details range is available for self collection. Our delivery service is required for furniture and larger items.

Do you have a minimum order requirement?

Yes, a minimum hire cost of £100 applies to self-collection bookings and £150 if delivery is required, excluding delivery fee.

What if something gets broken or we lose an item?

We would charge a replacement or repair cost will be charged. This includes upholstery cleaning fees if something gets spilled. We require a damage deposit to cover any lost or damaged items.

I can't find something that I’m looking for. Can you help find it for me?

If you have an idea for a “look” and need some help sourcing hard-to-find items or need customised props then drop us a line and we will happily help you. We’re constantly adding to the collection, so we may already have it in stock so drop us a line.

How do I place an order?

Once you have finished building your hire list, click the hire list button in the top right corner to review the items on your list. Fill in the details about you and your event then send off your enquiry.
Once you have received your custom quote and you are happy with the listed items in your quotation, let us know and we will book it in. We require a 50% non-refundable holding deposit at the time of booking, the final 50% is due 30 days before your event.
The damage and cleaning deposit must be sent by cheque to us at the address provided 30 days before your event. This is then destroyed within five (5) business days following the Event Date so long as items are returned on time and after inspection of the returned Rental Items by Company and a determination of no damages or cleaning fees.
On short notice orders (less than 30 days), payment is required in full.

Can I collect and return the item(s) I’ve hired?

Blue Wren will accommodate self collection for small items only for which you are welcome to come and collect and return the item(s) from us in Somerset. We provide all the required packaging and simply ask you to pack them back up as they were received for their safe return to us. Once received and checked we return your damage deposit to you.

We don’t know where to start, have little time and know we want a vintage, boho, festival inspired wedding. Can you style the event for us?

Yes of course! We don’t just have rustic vintage props but we also love to style them! See our styling packages as these are designed to help you create the WOW for your wedding! We are very friendly, so call or email us and we can go from there!

Can we just hire one off pieces from you?

Yes, you can. We just ask for a minimum order value of £150.

Do you have all your vintage prop hire on your website?

We’re constantly out hunting for new one off quirky rustic props to add to the collection so we don’t always have everything featured on our website as they may be waiting to be photographed. So, if you’re looking for something in particular and cannot see it on the website let us know!

We’re on a really tight budget, what is the most cost effective way we can hire your vintage props?

Get in touch and let us know. We have a range of props that won’t break your budget but will still mean your wedding or event will still ooze with gorgeousness!

What condition are your collections in?

All our pieces are pre loved, as this is the case each hire piece brings with it a character of it’s own. We always try to ensure items we hire are in top notch condition for their age. Therefore you should expect some slight wear on some pieces but hey are still in good working and useable condition. We will ask you to check all the items you have hired to ensure the pieces are correct and you are satisfied.

What events do you cater for?

We provide props and styling services for any event; from a small intimate dinner to a wedding for two hundred guests. We specialise in creating uniquely styled events including weddings, festivals, parties, birthdays, photo shoots, corporate events and more!

Can I come and view the items in your showroom before I hire?

Yes of course. The Blue Wren Barn showroom is available Monday-Saturday by appointment only.

Where can I find pricing information?

Inventory pricing is available within each of the categories found on our Collection and Packages pages. You may also email us at jess@bluewrenbarn.co.uk for a complete price list.

I am a photographer and/or wedding supplier, would you be interested in collaborating on a styled shoot for publication?

Blue Wren Barn would be delighted to participate in your shoot if our schedule permits. Please send your inquiry to jess@bluewrenbarn.co.uk

Are you willing to sell any of your pieces?

Unfortunately we do not sell any of our vintage pieces but can assist you with any reclaimed, upcycled furniture. Please drop us a line at jess@bluewrenbarn.co.uk

I have some vintage pieces that I’m looking to sell, would you be interested?

Blue Wren Barn is always on the hunt for new treasures. Please email jess@bluewrenbarn.co.uk with a minimum of 8-9 images, as well as your asking price. Only those that provide the following will be considered.

I don't have time to pick up the rentals. Can you deliver?

Yes, no problem. If you choose to have your hire item(s) delivered and collected there is a charge of £1 per mile plus any congestion charges. For large hire items or a more complex order additional charges may apply; these will be included in the pricing summary on your quote.
Delivery hours are Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and Saturday 8am-12pm. Pricing varies depending upon your area and size of order. Deliveries/pickups that need to be made outside of regular business hours will incur an additional charge.
