Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the hire period?
These are based on how long you need the items/equipment.
In most cases we deliver the morning of the ceremony/event and pick up at the conclusion of the ceremony/event after you have finished taking photos.
Extended hire periods can be arranged in the original booking and will depend on the availability of items. The hire company will provide a quote for an extended hire period on the request of the Hirer.
The use of equipment for wedding receptions (after the ceremony) may be charged an additional fee, as it is considered an extended hire period. The hire company will determine this fee upon booking.
Do you require a Security Bond?
Yes, we require a $200.00 Security Bond to be Paid via Direct Bank Transfer within 5 days of Booking Confirmation to ‘Secure your date’.

What if my wedding/event day is wet or windy?
We do appreciate if our clients have a wet/windy weather plan to keep our rugs, decor and especially our dried floral arrangements safe from the wet or wind. If your wedding day is wet or windy unfortunately we revert back to Section 2 – Damaged or Lost Items of the Terms & Conditions.
