Queenstown Wedding Hire is a family run business located in Queenstown, New Zealand – one of the most scenic and beautiful locations for a destination wedding in the world! Our passion is providing our wedding couples with those final ‘finishing touches’ and designer details that will truly set your wedding apart and make it an event that will be remembered for years to come!
We have a range of decor details from vintage to classic, rustic to elegant and everything in between! Our inventory is constantly changing to keep up with the latest trends and if we don’t have exactly what you are looking for, chances are we can source it for your or put you in touch with someone down here who does. Whether you are a DIY bride or a couple looking for a bit of styling assistance, having access to our wide range of décor accents and details will help you turn your wedding vision into reality. We also offer delivery, setup and styling assistance if you require, so no need to worry about how it will all come together on the day!
What do you love best about what you do?
We love helping couples create their very own dream wedding day. There is nothing better than seeing all the new and different ideas that our clients come up with to set their wedding day apart and we really love seeing how couples inject their own tastes and personalities into their wedding plans. The more we can help couples achieve their vision the better we feel at the end of the day…we also love being there to save the day with last minute items like rain umbrellas or sun parasols!
Whats your favourite thing to do on your day off?
We specifically chose Queenstown because we are outdoor enthusiasts, so you will find us enjoy our own backyard doing a range of activities on any given day (on lunch breaks or after work too if we’re lucky!). Al loves fishing and hunting and Sarah loves hiking, mountain biking and golfing…we are truly grateful every day to call Queenstown home and know that we are very lucky to live in such a beautiful area!
Tell us something about you?
Sarah and Al are a husband and wife team and they were married this past year themselves in the stunning surrounds of Queenstown!
Sarah is also a full time wedding planner with Simply Perfect Weddings based here in Queenstown. Many of the QWH items available for hire have been collected over the years from gorgeous weddings that have been planned and styled by the Simply Perfect team.
Alasdair is an engineer by trade and it was only through meeting Sarah that his engineering skills were dragged into the wedding world. You will find him hanging our stunning crystal chandeliers, rigging elaborate glass orb displays or creating bespoke wedding hire items such as our handmade wooden wedding arch at some of the most beautiful weddings in Queenstown.
Whats do you think is new and upcoming in weddings?
We love seeing the new and different trends coming through the wedding world. We think that 2015 is going to be another year of gorgeous weddings and you may see the trend of cocktail style or more casual style receptions increase, allowing people to create their own unique flow on their wedding day. I think the big focus on ‘fun!’ weddings will continue through 2014-15 and you will see couples bringing in new and fresh ideas to entertain their guests in a range of different ways.
In terms of styling, we are finding that vintage and rustic themes are slowly transforming into a more modern/industrial chic or natural/organic look…romantic/elegant wedding décor is also becoming increasingly popular.
What can guests expect from you at the fair (that maybe they wouldn’t otherwise see)?
We are planning to showcase a range of our most popular décor items but also some of our new hire items that haven’t even made it onto our website yet! We will be showcasing modern, rustic, vintage and elegant wedding décor…so there will really be something for everyone!
