Vintage Me

Today’s Oh So Perfect supplier profile is on the rather splendid crockery hire and catering company ‘Vintage Me

Vintage Me offer vintage crockery hire of up to 140 place settings, as well as event styling.

We cater traditional afternoon tea and cream tea catering, using local and organic produce where possible.

They can also provide a pop-up tea room consisting of a marquee complete with miss-match wooden garden furniture, spotty table cloths, bunting and other vintage fancies.

We’ve taken our pop-up tea room to private events such as christenings and corporate doo’s etc. I also take it to the Royal Air Tattoo in Fairford where I am the main food caterer in the Battle of Briton section, and also I attend Fairford steam rally every year as well as a few others.

Vintage Me was set up by Eve Coombs in 2008 and is based outside Cirencester – covering the whole of the Cotswolds, the South West and London. They were the first vintage crockery hire company to start up in the Cotswolds.

I set up Vintage Me due to a love for delicate pretty things. I loved savouring the most every day things, like a cup of tea in a bone china cup and saucer and feeling a little bit extra special by it, and then it became a guilty habit that got out of control!! I just want every one to be able to have lovely things for their special day; I just can’t stop myself, it’s in my blood!

Vintage Me appeals to the couple who want a creative touch to their wedding day, and wish to personalise their event.

I can provide a full on vintage affair, or clients can hire small elements to give their wedding a twist or a personal touch, we’re more glam vintage than retro. Lots of twinkly glass and mirrors with a bit of glitz!

Eve has even played host to some very special events in the past…

I have supplied to an amazing events company in London called Urban Caprice and they hired a lot of my crockery for 3 major events – Tesco’s Florence and Fred new Spring Range 2011, Lacoste’s New Pink Perfume launch 2010, and also a Sainsbury’s food photo shoot. Also Jackie Llewellyn-Bowen (as in long-haired Lawrence’s wife!) hired from me for a charity Garrison Girls night.

 In three words, Eve describes Vintage Me as ‘indulgent’ , ‘quintessential’ and ‘decadent,’ and she has most enjoyed every wedding or event which has been held in a garden or field.

That’s what I really love – vintage out doors!

Vintage Me  stands out from other vintage crockery suppliers due to the fact that they have no minimal/extra charges. As well as passion, Eve even has a degree in fine art and textiles, and a sharp eye for detail.

In truth the dress, location and all the rest are not the most important, what is is that you have found the person you want to share your life with and that you want all your family and friends their to share it with you.
