Looking for props to help style your wedding? I’m pretty confident Celtic Prop Hire can help you.

Based in Cardiff, they supply props for TV shows such as Sherlock, Dr.who, Casualty etc.. as well as film and a host of other things. But what I didn’t know and am thrilled about, is that they will also hire out props for weddings!
I went along to visit them a few weeks ago (with my camera in tow). No matter what your theme, theres bound to be something here!
The team at are super nice and more than happy for you to come along and take a look. Simply give them a call first to arrange an appointment.You can then pop over and have a wander around their warehouse.
Hiring is so much easier than scouring the internet, charity chops, markets, car boot sales etc.. besides, where else are you likely to find a giant ice cream and cart (for an outdoor summer wedding) or 60+ pub-style chairs, a load of vintage typewriters, musical instruments, costumes, giant clocks (perfect for an Alice in Wonderland theme)…the list goes on :)
If you are planning a wedding around christmas, how about having a sleigh with a reindeer? It looks great in a photo booth, take a look here
You can even hire a load of bikes? how cool would these look in your group photographs. A lot more fun that all standing in a row right? Why not make it more fun!
And for those having a ‘space’ theme…I found a rocket!
When it comes to keeping the kids entertained during the day. Rather than go out and buy a load of games you’re unlikely to ever play after the wedding, why not hire these old school games? it’ll be great fun for the adults too!
And for those planning an Alice in wonderland style wedding. There is an unbelievable amount of clocks and candelabras available!
…lots and lots of furniture
For those planning a ‘vintage’ style wedding. You are going to LOVE these amazing suitcases & trunks. Perfect for guests to leave their cards & presents
there is even something for those wanting to incorporate a ‘circus’ theme into their wedding day.
How about a hollywood glamour/ movie theme? you could hire these Oscars as part of your table centres!
PLUS, also have this GIANT Oscar too :) and create a main focal point for your reception room. Next to the top table possibly?
Or maybe planning a musical wedding?
And back to vintage…
ooo…perfect for a cocktail party! …
…or a good old fashion Pub style shindig? (don’t forget the dry roasted peanuts and pork scratchings)
And for those planning a laid back, outdoor wedding. You could hire these picnic baskets, fill them with lots of treats for your guests to enjoy while they relax on the grass during your drinks reception.
Ice cream anyone?
Take a look at some of the other things I saw and feel inspired to style your wedding how YOU want :)
