Rustic Furniture

One of the things that we love about Weddings are seeing the personal touches that each couple incorporate into their wedding day. There are no two weddings the same! 

One of the more recent trends that we have noticed is here to stay, is the more relaxed and less formal weddings that couples are planning. Less and less are the days of the white linen tablecloths and formalities- it is all about being with loved ones and having a fun time. 

With barns and tipi's becoming ever so popular, we found there was a need for rustic and relaxed furniture to fit in with this! We first introduced our rustic tables and chairs in March 2017. All rustic trestle tables are lovingly handmade, and can seat between 3 - 4 guests per side. More recently the tables have had a little makeover! The tables have been ever so gently stained, giving it a bit of a more warm and softer look. We've seen many different types of table decor before- from hessian lace runners, to old gin bottles with delicate flowers in. The possibilites are endless to make it personal to you. No need to worry about spilling wine or water on the tables- it simply adds to the rusticness! 

We hope you love our rustic furniture as much as we do.

New Rustic Bar

We had been playing around with the idea of an apple crated, new rustic bar for some time now. Our friends at Pimhill Barn asked us to provide a bar for them in March 2016, and we thought that there would be no better time than then, to unveil our new bar!

The first question in our minds, where do we start?! Afer numerous sketches and designs, we finally decided on what we felt would be the best choice, and that was unlike any other rustic bar we had seen before. We started by carfeully selecting about 60 - 80, rustic apple crates. Once most of the crates were all broken down, we mix matched the different pieces to create what looked like a mess, but a clean and tidy mix-matchedness of a front bar. Then came the back bar section...we measured, chopped and nailed a bit more together until the crates were suitable for all 40 different drinks and spirits that we have available.

Look out for our new rustic bar on our Facebook page, or the next Wedding or event that you're at!

Royal Service for VIP's

Over the last few years Tipples have served some famous guests, notably back in 2010 we served the Duke of Edinburgh at a charity lunch in Cheshire and Freddie Flintoff in Ludlow. However the bar was raised last weekend when we served Champagne on arrival and canapes with the Golden Goose caterers and who should come around the corner but Princess Beatrice, she acted like any other guest and was ever so polite and had a really enjoyable night. After the meal was served she came and thanked all of the staff for what she described as a wonderful meal and service, she really does show the royal family in a very positive light there were no airs and graces just a young lady enjoying her friends party like anyone else. It was later pointed out to us that Richard Branson's children were also present, let's hope we get a call from the Queen soon for her jubilee party!
