What does The Little English Wedding Company do?
The Little English Wedding Company provides beautiful, original items available for hire for your wedding day. Our gorgeous handmade Royal Mail style post boxes keep your cards safe and are available in a stunning range of colours. We also have a fabulous, custom designed photo booth that looks great in any style of wedding venue and has lots of brilliant features for extra fun. We also hire smaller items for decoration, including a vintage suitcase and pretty bird cages.
How did The Little English Wedding Company get started and how long has the business been going?
We got the idea for the business following our own wedding in December 2012. The post box was made for us as a present by some fantastic carpenters and we thought it would be a great idea to make them available in more colours to other couples getting married. We think they are a gorgeous addition to your day and look really great at any style of wedding. We are always on the lookout for new, original ideas to help couples make the most of their special day.
Why is the business called The Little English Wedding Company?
The very first product we started with was the post boxes, and we loved how vintage and English they looked. When we were trying out different company names, we loved this one and can’t imagine it being called anything else.
Who works at The Little English Wedding Company?
The Little English Wedding Company is primarily a husband and wife team – Rowenna and James Gill. We first met at secondary school and have been married for almost a year. We can’t leave out our team though – our post boxes are hand made by very skilled carpenters who put a lot of hours into making them look as stunning as they do, including the gleaming colour finish!
