While trawling op shops for vintage wares can be pretty fun, it can also get pretty expensive, not to mention time consuming. If you’re going for a vintage or eclectic vibe for your wedding, you might like to consider hiring some stand-out props to style your day. Here are some of our favourite vintage prop hire offerings, from pretty pastel tea sets to unique furniture pieces and backdrops.
Based in the Mornington Peninsula, Poppy Jean is the creative vision of Jules Trebilcock, who has combined her love of design and styling with her obsession of hunting and gathering vintage collectables. As well as a large collection of vintage tea sets and tableware, there are some rather special items like a lovely old swing, a wooden canoe and beautiful timber shutters. The trademark Poppy Jean caravan (a restoration of love) can be used as a sweet little haven for photos or as a dessert buffet, DJ booth or bar. (Check out Nicola & Dave’s wedding for some cute caravan inspiration).
