Hiring props from One Curious Dream – Important Info
How do I make a booking?
Drop us an email (email@example.com) with the following info:
- A list of the props, furniture and decorations you are interested in hiring, along with the quantity of each item
- The date of your wedding or event
- The name of your venue and location of your wedding
We will then check availability for you and get the booking paperwork and deposit invoice organised from there.
Do you have a minimum spend?
Yes. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept bookings under £125.
In order to secure your booking, our payment terms are as follows:
A deposit of 50% of total booking amount or £125 (whichever is greater) with the balance payable 30 days prior to your wedding.
All payments are non-refundable and props are not secured until a deposit payment has been received.
Where are you based?
The One Curious Dream prop hire studio is based just outside the city centre of Norwich, Norfolk (NR3) – there is parking directly outside. We provide props predominantly for weddings in Norfolk and Suffolk and sometimes in Cambridge, Essex and London.
Delivery & collection
We offer a delivery and collection service for bookings over £175 in Norfolk and Suffolk. All mileage (two return journeys) is charged from/to our hire studio (NR3 2BF) and your venue at 50p per mile and is invoiced as per the google maps calculation. We are able to accept bookings under £175, however, we are unable to offer delivery /collection and therefore these will need to be collected and returned to our prop hire studio during our studio opening hours.
For bookings in Cambridge or Essex, we have a minimum spend of £300 to qualify for delivery. Mileage is chargeable as per the above.
We will contact you to make the delivery/collection arrangements no sooner than two weeks before your wedding when our schedules for your date have been finalised. We take care of multiple weddings each weekend, so whilst we always try and accommodate any requested delivery/collection slots, these cannot be guaranteed, unfortunately.
If you would prefer to collect and return the props from/to us, no problem! Collection appointments are generally arranged for the day before your wedding and return appointments the day after during our studio opening hours. We will always try to accommodate earlier collections/later returns, but this does depend on availability and additional charges may apply.
Can I view your prop hire collection?
Once you have gathered your list together of the props, furniture and decorations you are interested in hiring, please share this with us and we can arrange a viewing appointment for you. Please note that we only hold a small selection of our collection in the prop hire studio, therefore, we require this list in advance so that we can ensure the props are available for you to view.
If you feel you need some support with choosing your props, we offer a range of design and styling services, more details of which can be found here: Wedding design and styling
Unfortunately, due to the nature of our studio environment, we are unable to accommodate children (under 16 years of age) at appointments. We also ask that you wear sensible shoes as you will be visiting a warehouse environment.
A Security Deposit of £200 or 20% of the total hire amount (whichever is greater) is payable via BACS transfer with your final balance, one month prior to the Hire Date. We will not release any props to you without this being paid. Assuming our props and pretties are returned in the same condition and quantity at the returns appointment, we will refund the security deposit via BACS transfer no later than 72 hours following your final handover appointment.
How long is the hire period for?
In most cases, we allow a day for drop off / set up (if appropriate), the hire day itself, followed by the collection day.
For prop hire bookings, it is your responsibility to ensure that all props are packaged (in the packaging provided by One Curious Dream) and ready for collection (gathered in one location within 25 metres of our van) when our driver arrives. Charges will be applied should our driver arrive on site and not be able to load and depart within 15 minutes of arrival.
We do offer a takedown service at a cost of £100 (subject to availability), where our team will pack the props that you have hired. Please let us know at the time of booking if you would like to add this as an option.
