Are you looking for some amazing vintage pieces to style your wedding? Hiring unique vintage pieces for your wedding gives your venue styling a unique individuality and is also eco friendly! Green Cockatoo Events are Scotland's leading specialist vintage hire company and also offer experienced event support.
They offer a HUGE range of pieces for hire including fabulous mismatched coloured vintage wine glasses, vintage china and teacups, easels and frames, and so much more! You can view all of their pieces at their showroom in Kelty, Fife.
We caught up with owners Fiona and John to find out a little bit more about the couple behind the business.
Tell us a bit about you, the person behind the brand?
Hey we're Fiona & John, with a passion for customer care and a love of the quirky and unusual. Fiona has a BA in Event Management and is a part-time lecturer in Event Management, Hospitality and Tourism at Fife College in Kirkcaldy, John has extensive experience in events and works in partnership with Fiona and is an experienced chauffeur since 1997.
How did your vision/passion begin? I (Fiona) always loved vintage, and saw the hire trend moving from the USA to England - by the time it reached Scotland we had already started collecting! We also strongly believe in sustainability and love giving clients the chance to reuse beautiful vintage pieces of glass and china.
What’s your favourite part of doing what you do?
Helping couples find their own individual style and pick items that they find extra special when at the showroom, while we put the kettle on for a blether at the same time.
What one piece of advice would you give to couples? Why not hire instead of buying? It's much more sustainable - you can save money, choose from a huge range of items that have already been collected for you and you are not left with a mountain of things to move on after the wedding.
What attracted you to our alternative wedding directory? It describes our business perfectly, we have always been a little bit different!
Who is your biggest icon, and why? We have followed Johnny Roxburgh for years and loved his wedding planning ideas - he is not afraid to think out of the box.
What’s for dinner? Take away tonight as we have been too busy to cook!
