It is the hirers responsibility to ensure the used linen is packed up and boxes sealed ready for collection. If a courier has to leave without picking up the consignment due to the linen not ready, boxes not taped up, misplaced etc, The courier will have to be rebooked resulting in a delay in return and laundering. If linen arrives back late due to a wasted pick up for whatever reason, the hirer will forfeit £50 for each aborted pickup from their damage loss deposit.  If the damage/loss deposit does not cover the total cost, we will send you an invoice and require payment within 30 days from the date of the invoice.

This depends on availability. We can however make slight adjustments to the order after it has been booked; We can add or remove up to 25 extra chair covers.

Candelabras

Delivering to you

We do not ask for a holding deposit for damage or loss when hiring from us , however we ask you to complete a simple form nominating a responsible person to be available on delivery and at collection. The reason for this is to ensure you are happy with the candelabra and to agree that they are in excellent condition on arrival and to ensure they are returned in the same excellent condition when collected.  Any candelabras returned to us without being cleaned of wax, or not wrapped safely will be subject to a charge of £15.00 per candelabra.

Floral decoration

If you do not wish to use our florist and wish to appoint your own florist to decorate the candelabra this must be a professional florist who understands conditioning of flowers and foliage. Acidity from poorly conditioned flowers can tarnish the candelabra and you will be held responsible for any damage .

Collecting from us

If you decide to collect from us you will be asked for a holding fully refundable deposit , this can be paid by cheque but must be cleared funds by the date of collection. Any damages/loss of candelabra will be deducted from the holding deposit when you return the candelabra to us.

When placing an order

We require a 20% deposit of your total order to reserve the day and the candelabra/floral design/wedding flowers for you, the balance must be paid in full one month before the date of hire. To help you to budget you have the option to pay by instalments if you so wish.
