Testimonials

'Many thanks to Carol for the excellent service provided for our Brief Encounter themed evening at Lancaster Town Hall. The simply gorgeous vintage china made all the difference to the evening, and Carol's amazing attention to detail and sound advice ahead of the event, meant everything went off without a hitch. Thanks so much, Julie'- The Dukes Cinema, Brief Encounter Anniversary Event, Lancaster Town Hall, November 2015.


'Carol worked on our wedding at The Midland Hotel in Morecambe this July. We had seen some of the wonderful styling that she had done previously when looking online, and on meeting at the wedding fair, so we knew we would be getting one of the best event designers around. Although I knew I wanted a 1930's theme to fit in with the hotel venue, I'm afraid I didn't have that much of a plan when I arrived for our first meeting - not an easy brief to work from! However, by the time I left Carol had come up with some amazing ideas that not only fitted with our theme but also incorporated elements of the things my husband and I share in our relationship like a love of travel, our previous careers in publishing, etc. By the time the wedding breakfast came around the room looked incredible and the guests really appreciated all of the little touches that Carol had included on each of the tables - they are still talking about it now. Huge thank you from us, you made what could have been a very stressful process an absolute pleasure and we'll definitely stop by for a cup of tea next time we're in town x' Nicky and Graeme Spooner Stirling, Midland Hotel Wedding, July 2015.


'Carol is worth every penny!! Carol helped us create our 1920's wedding theme which, without her, I could not of done myself. Everyone commented on how beautiful it all looked and it really does show in our wedding Photo's / DVD. Having Carol styling our tables and chairs meant, that instead of being stressed on the Friday evening, we could enjoy a meal and a drink and relax with our family and friends. Also on the morning of the wedding we could just relax knowing we were in safe hands and the room would look stunning ( which it did). I would recommend to couples to try and budget for a stylist as it makes a world of difference. It was money well spent and we would recommend Carol to anyone. Thank you so much Carol, Love Carly, John, Theo & Freya x' Midland Hotel Wedding, April 2015.

'The room created by Carol was absolutely amazing ..... It was not just 'centrepieces ' it was an Ambience that was styled. I cannot recommend Carol enough, from first meeting to finished look, her calm relaxed nature not only helped us to choose our options, but incredibly and magically it was passed on to our guests for the entire day !!! Perfect Carol just Perfect xx'. Cheryl Heaton Ward, October 2014.

'Itsy bitsy vintage are fantastic :)
I met up with them and they were happy to discuss all my wedding reception ideas over lots of tea and biscuits! They were happy to source items if I wished to make my rustic vintage wedding at the tithe barn in Carlisle perfect. We hired 100m of amazing bunting off them which looked wonderful. It really made the room come alive! We hired all centrepieces and items for the top tables and the guest table. I loved it! Everyone commented on how lovely it was! My personal favourite was all the vintage cameras and the typewriter! They even helped with arranging the flowers for the tables on the day which was a brilliant help! They also gave us styling tips for our chair ties (twine and dried lavender)
Thankyou once again for helping towards making our wedding perfect :)
I would definitely recommend itsy bitsy if you are requiring something a bit special and different :)' Emma Dobie, October 2014.

'Just wanted to say a big thank you for helping to make my day SO special. Right from our first meeting I knew you’d be perfect for my 1940s birthday party. I loved all your ideas and felt totally confident that you’d deliver something extra special. All your china, linen and silverware is simply stunning! Having you on hand offering the setting up and clearing away service made organising my event so much easier. My guests and I think Itsy Bitsy is just wonderful and we’d definitely recommend and use your excellent service again ' - Emmaline 2012.


'My partner and I decided we would like to celebrate the birth of our daughter, and welcome her into the family with a naming ceremony. We wanted to have a joyous occasion without spending a vast amount of money. I was so pleased to discover Itsy Bitsy Vintage. I had been concerned about my modest budget but Itsy Bitsy Vintage had some fantastic ideas which really added impact without adding budget! Our venue was the Gregson which is a lovely space but a little faded, however the bunting and china transformed it. So many guests commented on how beautiful the room looked, and I loved the fact the room looked so individual. I'm not too keen on things looking too matchy-matchy and I think Itsy Bitsy's beautiful things made the space look glamorous and intimate. Itsy Bitsy Vintage offers a very professional service, the china, tablecloths and bunting were of stunning quality and collection and delivery were easy. My partner had thought I was a little bonkers ordering so much bunting, but he had to eat his words on the day!Jonathan of Beanphoto took some amazing photos of the day and the most gorgeous photo of my baby girl, which takes pride of place in my home now. Fantastic mementoes of a great day.I would highly recommend itsy bitsy vintage, and I have to say that my favourite part of the preparation was enjoying a cup of tea with Carol whilst picking out the beautiful china' - Rachel & Callum 2012.

'Thankyou for your hard work providing china for our wedding. From the first e-mail to the day itself, Itsy Bitsy has been friendly, reliable and most importantly helpful in making our day perfect. We will recommend you to friends and look forward to using you again in the future! - Claire and Andy 2012


'When we decided that we wanted to hire some vintage china for our wedding at the Midland Hotel we found Itsy Bitsy via an Internet search. I was so impressed by their website that I decided I wanted to surprise my fiancé by asking them to also dress the room for us in true 1920's style.

My bridesmaid and I made a trip up to Lancaster to meet the lovely ladies and spend an amazing afternoon eating rather delicious cake and drinking tea discussing such exciting, inspiring, creative and amazing ideas for the room.

They understood my budget restraints and offered ideas which fitted perfectly. We worked together with ribbons I was able to purchase in China and also feathers I was able to obtain. They created magic with these assists. I was able to just leave the rest of the room design to their amazing props and expertise and at no time did I not feel 100% confident they would be able to dazzle my fiancé and of course all my guests. They just did everything taking away any pressure, it was inspiring and delightful.

They worked so hard for me the night before the wedding, still there much later that we had planned ensuring everything was perfect. As a little bit of a perfectionist myself this was such a rare treat to know they understood how important the look of the room was to me. However it was obvious they take complete pride in their work and every job is treated individually and with real love and care.

Just to add to their amazing ability they are totally lovely and for me this really added to the experience of working with such lovely people when planning my wedding.

I recommend you meet these ladies, their props, they amazing ability and of course their cake!!!' - Alison & Andrew, 2013.


'I'd like to thank Itsy Bitsy Vintage for the supply of the beautiful Cake Stands and Tea Pots – they really made our Afternoon Tea very special. Thank you also to you for being very easy to deal with when it came to the ordering and transactions.' - Jennifer & Cihan, Midland Hotel wedding,  August 2013.

'Thanks again for the great work you did at the venue - you took our slightly vague and waffling ideas and made it into something just right! It was so wonderful to not have to worry about styling on the day, and actually, we didn't have to worry in the lead up either knowing you had it all under control. Thankyou indeed! Pam & Max, September 2014

Carol styled our Wedding in July 2015 at The Midland Hotel. When we met I had seen some of Carol's amazing work but was unclear of what we may like for our event - not an easy brief for her to work too! Within a couple of weeks Carol had come up with a number of unique and stylish suggestions that really brought out both the vintage theme we wanted, but also personal elements around the things we love as a couple like travel, publishing and sport. Everyone who attended agreed that the room looked stunning and for us it was a key part of what made our wedding so very special - HUGE thanks Carol, we hope to work with you again for the next big event we have x
