1. Tell us about yourself and how you got started?

Hi I'm Chris From Kent Wedding Hire. In August 2019 I married my wife at the beautiful Old Kent Barn.

We had been planning our rustic/country wedding since 2017, and as a part-time carpenter, I had decided to build my own games to suit our theme.

I'm very particular and don't like doing things by half measures, so I created the games (as well as lots of other items for our big day) over several months.

It had always been the plan that I would also hire them out, and so the games were created to be easy to move, but robust enough to put up with lots of people using them.

The games went down a treat at our own wedding, with the adults really taking to them once the drinks had been flowing.

But funnily enough, we weren't the first to use them, with several couples having had them at their weddings before we did.

Since then, we have been slowly adding to our list of games, with suggestions always very welcome.

2. Where are you based? Do you hire to weddings throughout the UK?

We are based in Ashford, Kent, with hire taking place in a 15-mile radius from us.

3. What do you specialise in?

All rustic garden games, which can be used both inside and outside.

4. Tell us about the process we should expect when using your services?

We aim to make our process as simple for our couples as possible.

When you decide you would like to book with us (check out our games and prices on our Facebook page) it's a simple case of popping us an email with your date, location and what you would like to hire.

Once we have confirmed that the date is available we will ask for a few more details, and then pop across the invoice.

A £60 non-refundable deposit is all that is needed to secure the date and items, and we will contact you nearer to your big day regarding final payment.

5. What's your availability like for 2021 & 2022?

We have dates available all through 2021/2022

6. What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?

Have fun with it.

The planning is part of the memory, so do it as a couple and enjoy the process.

Remember, nothing to do with the day is worth stressing about, so enjoy every moment, and laugh and the parts that don't go to plan, it will all fall into place and be perfect regardless of what happens.

7. Tell us something unique about you and your service!

We can create games for your day!

If we don't have a game on our list that you had hoped for, get in touch, as we may well be able to make it ready for the day.

8. Where can we see more of your work?
