Our wedding and the beginning of Virginia’s Vintage Hire

Our love of all things vintage began when we bought our nineteenth century stone cottage in the beautiful Blackdown Hills on the Devon/Somerset border. We set about collecting unique and special finds for our home, everything from rustic ‘chippy’ pieces, vintage linens, rusty nic naks and old garden things. When Greg popped the question on a snowy night in Morzine, France we knew our wedding day had to reflect us, so the location, the food and of course the furniture and decoration had to be just so! On July 14th 2012 our family and friends gathered on the banks of the River Dart in Devon to witness us exchange our personally written vows. After the ceremony we all wandered up through a beautiful summer meadow to our wedding camp in the woods and a beautiful day ended with a good old shin-dig by a huge bonfire. Both of us play a vital role in the business; we are a team through and through. Together we are delighted to be able to share out collection with others for their special events. As the collection grows we always bear in mind what we would have bought if we were still collecting for our own wedding.
