As a stylist and designer Sara skilfully caters for all, from the discerning bride who wants her wedding to be stylish & contemporary as well as romantic to hiring Elsie Florence vintage china to the London stylist sourcing perfect pieces for her photo shoot. It is all about being ahead of the game and giving that bit extra. Having relocated from London to Somerset with a career in fashion and interior trend forecasting, Sara wanted a business that incorporated all that she loved about fashion and styling. Anyone who knows her and has looked inside her 400 year old town house can see how her business came to be and how it is constantly evolving. Everywhere you look is a feast for the eye from pretty china to spinning tops and retro vintage cars. It is a lifestyle as well as an obvious passion.
Sara’s grandmother, Elsie Florence played a huge part in her childhood and together they shared a mutual passion for all things beautiful and elegant. Inheriting a much loved and coveted tea set from her grandmother was the inspiration needed to start her vintage china hire company in 2002, starting a nation wide trend for vintage style weddings. Sara has an eye for detail and can transform a table to make you catch your breath.

The idea for ‘A Most Curious Party…’ was born through vintage enthusiast Rebecca’s own love of everything vintage! Rebecca spent months scouring antique shops and car boot sales to source unusual pieces to style her own wedding last July. After that Rebecca couldn’t stop collecting so decided to hire out all the objects and help others who want to bring a little vintage charm to their event.
