Wedding Prop Hire
Welcome to our stunning collection of lovingly selected vintage, rustic, boho and contemporary props & pretties available for wedding hire. Our gigantic treasure trove contains just about everything you could need to put the perfect finishing touches to your big day, from ceremony arbours, pimp your prosecco, lanterns and giant light up letters through to ideas for the kids, vintage props & furniture, table centrepieces, signage and everything in between – we’ve got you covered! Whatever your style, the award-winning team of stylists at One Curious Dream is on hand to help you select the perfect pieces and put together a look that fits your theme, ideas, and budget.
We are happy for you to hire our props and take care of decorating your venue directly, or, if you want to take the pressure off, we can lead the decoration efforts to ensure your venue looks picture perfect for your big day – visit our venue styling page for more info.
We would love for you to visit our prop hire studio in Norwich for a cuppa and a chat to discuss your décor and prop hire plans. Alternatively, feel free to get in touch with the items you are interested in hiring and we can check availability for you.
Prop Hire from One Curious Dream – FAQ’s.
Where are you based?
The One Curious Dream prop hire studio is based in the city centre of Norwich, Norfolk – there are several car parks within walking distance.
Can I view your prop hire collection?
Absolutely. We are happy to offer a complimentary 1-hour decor and styling session at our prop hire studio. We work on an appointment only basis so get in touch to check availability.
How do I make a booking?
Get in touch with the props and pretties you are interested in hiring (including anything you are looking for that isn’t pictured – we may well have something that fits the bill in our collection) along with the date and venue for your wedding. We will check availability for you and get the booking paperwork and deposit invoice organised from there.
In order to secure your booking, our payment terms are as follows:
Bookings under £50: Full payment (which is non-refundable) for bookings up to the value of £50.
Bookings between £50 – £200: £50 non-refundable deposit with balance payable 30 days prior to wedding.
Bookings over £200: 25% of total booking value with balance payable 30 days prior to wedding.
Damage Deposit and Handover Appointments
A £100 cash Damage Deposit is payable at the check-out handover appointment.
A 15 minute check out / check in appointment will be organised with one of our team either at our studio or your venue. All hired goods will be inspected on the check out (when we hand the props over to you) and you will be asked to sign a document confirming the satisfactory condition and quantity of each item. On the check in appointment (where we receive the props back into our care) each item will be inspected for damage and in cases where this is found (or loss occurs) the replacement cost outlined on your Engagement Letter will be deducted from your damage deposit. Any damage or loss that exceeds the replacement cost outlined in your Engagement Letter will be invoiced and becomes payable within 7 days of issue.
Please note that the replacement fee is payable even in cases where individual parts or pieces of our garden games are lost or damaged as these will no longer be hireable to another party as a complete set. Therefore, we recommend you nominate a designated person to make a final check that all pieces (including counters, blocks, dice etc) are present before your check in handover appointment.
Delivery & collection
We offer a delivery and collection service for bookings over £75. All mileage is charged from/to our hire studio (NR3 1DJ) and your venue at 45p per mile and is invoiced as per the google maps calculation. We happily accept bookings under £75, however, we are unable to offer delivery /collection and therefore these will need to be collected and returned to our prop hire studio.
If we are making a collection from your venue, all items must be packed in the One Curious Dream packaging provided and ready for collection at the agreed time. We reserve the right to deduct a fee from your damage deposit in the event that our props are not packaged appropriately and ready for collection at the agreed time.
How long is the hire period for?
In most cases, this is 72 hours allowing a day for drop off / set up (if appropriate), the hire day itself, followed by the collection day.
