The Coppermill Hire Co.

Rustic wedding hire from salvaged and upcycled materials

Who are we...

I'm Tom Abel and woodwork has been part of our family since my grandfather first hand crafted toys for his sons and grandsons in his shed at the bottom of the garden over 60 years ago. We have a passion for giving a new life to characteristic old treasures.

At The Coppermill Hire Co, we specialise in providing rustic/vintage/salvaged tables, chairs, bars and props for weddings, festivals and events. We are based in West Sussex but offer nationwide delivery.

We are an ethical company that use salvaged and up-cycled materials to create each of our items. We have a passion for giving a new life to beautifully characteristic old treasures that have been sourced from sites around the UK. All our pieces are either vintage or handmade, so they have a superior quality and an authenticity which is hard to find anywhere else. We pride ourselves on offering exceptional individual items with a unique story, so our clients can set the perfect scene for their big day. 

Our beautiful exposed wood tables and folding wooden chairs can be used to create a banquet-style atmosphere to complete the rustic look. All our tables are handmade using Victorian antique timber dating back to the 1890’s for a superior quality and finish. We also handcraft all our bars and DJ booths from reclaimed and salvaged timber. We have over 300 vintage beech folding chairs available.

Also available are a selection of vintage props to really set the scene, including a range of brass candelabras and candlesticks, circus style signs, blackboards and easels, Kilner drinks dispensers, tin baths, candle holders, fire pits etc.
