A few weeks ago, the lovely Emma and Chris got married. They had an amazing tipi wedding in Lincolnshire, and hired a couple of trunks, bunting, and picture frames with blackboards from us, and painted their own awesome signs. It looked like an amazing wedding, they did a great job!

Are you looking for that special styling touch for your venue, wedding or garden party? Got a marquee that’s missing that special twist?
At Pinnies and Pearls, our bunting is one of our hottest items right now. We have 100 metres each of our mixed pastel, pink themed, blue themed and green and hessian themed sets. All are available to hire for £5 per 10 metres.
Check out the Bunting Hire page for more photos of the different colours, and details of our other vintage style items for hire, including china for afternoon tea and much more.
Contact Us by email if you’re interested in hiring, or message us on Facebook. We have plenty of dates left for 2017!
Every year we get involved with one or two weddings that are the wedding of the summer for us, hire wise. This year one of them was Lisa and Adam’s wedding, who got married at Pim Hill Barns in Shrewsbury. The barn is beautiful and they’d gone all out on decorations, including bird cages, pom poms and home made lighting hanging from the roof, hundreds of glass jam jars, and a barn full of our china! They went for our top package, including cream and jam bowls, log slices, hessian runners, three tier cake stands and more.
We rocked up first thing on Saturday morning with a car full of china, and had a great couple of hours setting up the tables and finishing help decorate the barn with Lisa’s family. They had an awesome day and we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the lovely bride when we went back to collect our items on the evening. They were kind enough to send us some photos of our items in use through, and you can see them below! Thanks to Sara Beaumont Photography for the lovely photos.
A couple of weeks ago we put up our latest set of bunting, our Green and Hessian set, up at Blakelands for Katie and Rob’s wedding. It complemented their cream and yellow theme really well!
We have 100 metres of this set, as well as 100 metres in our pink, blue and mixed pastel sets. We hire it out at £50 for 100 metres, and can optionally put it up for an additional charge. Blakelands takes 100 metres, and we charge £30 to put it up. We hope you like it as much as we do!
We’ve been doing a few local wedding fayres of late, and today is the last one we have booked at the moment – the Sutton Coldfield Vintage Wedding Fayre, at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. We’ll be there from 11am-3pm today (Sunday 3rd April) with our vintage china, props and styling, showing a few new items, which we’ll get posted on here this week.
If there are any vintage or chic/rustic wedding fayres near you you think we should exhibit at, as long as they’re in or near the West Midlands, drop us a line and let us know, we’re always interested in finding lovely new fayres to attend!
It’s nice to have a break from planning fayres and hires for this year and take a look at some of our weddings from last year. One of our favourites was Millie and Ben, who were the first couple to book us for their wedding, at our first wedding fayre.
Millie and Ben had their reception at the lovely Worfield Village Hall, originally built before World War 2, and still retaining amazing character. They’d collected lots of china from their family, and hired bunting, teapots, coffeepots, cake plates, cake stands and log slices from us.
We had a great morning on the Friday helping setup – they had a small army of helpers transforming the village hall with our bunting, their fairy lights, table cloths, runners and about 10 car fulls of vintage – much of it home made.
Thanks to Shepherd Photography for supplying the beautiful photos!
Just a quick note to say merry upcoming Christmas! It’s been a busy year for us at Pinnies and Pearls and we’re looking forward to putting our feet up over christmas. As if! We’re part way through a big china sort, and getting more photos to put on the website, and then get ready for the Spring wedding fayres.
We now have several of these beautiful sash windows, for use as table plans.
We have two 3×2 pane windows, and one 1×4 pane window. We supply each for £15, with a white pen for writing your table plan on.
We’re always trying out new themes and designs, and one of our latest additions is this gorgeous Paris/Travel themed suitcase, for your wedding table plan.
Lined in lovely world maps and an old style poster of the Eiffel tower, the suitcase comes with the ribbon strung across it for £15. For an additional 50p per card, you can have either the printed postcards blank, or have your names printed on them.

Earlier this year, we hired out some china and bunting to Mark and Jo, who got married in June, and had their reception at the France Rugby Club, near Kidderminster.
The lovely couple hired a full afternoon tea from us, including trios, three tier cake plates, teapots, coffee pots, teaspoons, cake forks, and more! Continue reading
