Dawn & Christine
Winterborne Hire & Styling
Based in Dorset we are a wedding and event prop hire and styling company with a unique ethos and brand identity built from the love of vintage, rustic and boho.
We like to fuse these styles together with the most up to date wedding trends and source those important key pieces that every couple wants to make their wedding day special and reflect their own style.
The majority of our props are handmade, upcycled or sourced vintage and we also love to support local craftsmen by making as much as we can close to home, trying to commit to a more sustainable vision for the modern wedding.
We are a mother and daughter team and Winterborne Hire & Styling was born after my own wedding. I struggled to find all the beautiful pieces I wanted close to home so we set about sourcing them ourselves!
Im Dawn, my background as a fashion designer for a large retail company has taken me all around the world which has been hugely inspirational on my tastes and love of sourcing vintage.
My 15 years within this industry has also given me the experience to research and spot up coming trends and colour palettes. Moving from clothing to the wedding industry has been a dream come true.
Christine - my mum, is naturally a creative person and extremely crafty. She is responsible for all of our amazing floral arrangements and makes so many of our beautiful bespoke props.
She is also the practical mind of the duo and can work out ‘how we make things happen’ she’s often seen up a ladder or swinging things from ropes!
We are regular attendees at every auction, car boot and jumble sale around and are constantly adding to our huge range of amazing props.
We love talking to our wedding couples and helping them to make their visions a reality. Each wedding is so different and that is what we love. Our showroom is our pride and joy and years of sourcing and making all under one ‘slightly crazy’ roof!
