I started hiring hats in 1986, when nobody had ever heard of hat hire, so it was unknown territory. Here I am 33 years later and still hiring hats/fascinators etc. I have gained immense experience over the years, so I should be able to help you for your special day. I have an extensive range of over a 1,000 hats/hatinators and fascinators, designer makes all to hire for a fraction of the cost of buying. Hire charge is between £10 and £65.
I can customise a hat of your choice by decorating it with matching feathers, beads or material. I also make fascinators out of sinemay and decorate to match your outfit. Corsages on magnets can be made to match. The magnet is perfect because you do not have to worry about pin holes on your outfit.
I am situated in Porthcawl and if you require my service you can telephone me to make an appointment. This can be any time during the day, but I make evening appointments when the evenings are light, also Saturdays and Sundays if required.
I would ask you to bring your outfit with you to colour match, plus textures and the colour of your hair play a part in choosing the right hat. If you select a hat you can then book it in for the wedding or special event that you are attending. A deposit would be paid at the time of booking. A date for collection would be agreed, usually a couple of days before the date required. The full amount of the hire charge would then be paid, and you would return the hat a couple of days after the event. Even if the hat is in your possession for about four days you would only pay the one hire charge. Your deposit would then be returned to you all being well.
My hats have been to the Royal Wedding, Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace, Investitures, Royal Ascot, Regattas and weddings large and small. Whatever the event I hope that I can oblige.
I do not want you to feel there is any obligation to hire if you make an appointment, just come and enjoy the ‘hat’ experience. I have seen many changes over the 33 years to do with the hat industry, and keeping up to date is of prime importance to me. I have met lots of lovely ladies in my time and being a small part of their special day makes it worthwhile.
I have two telephone numbers 01656 773837 . If the answer machine comes on please leave your number and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I will give you detailed directions and parking is very easy.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
