Crab Apple Hire

Hunter, NSW - Australia

About This Vendor

Before Crab Apple Hire & Style there was Crab Apple Vintage, the brainchild of us, Martina and Leigh. Our big idea was a treasure trove of recycled, upcycled and eco-friendly wares – and before long our shop took shape and became busy, busy.

Making it the perfect time to plan our wedding of course.

So in 2013 we set the date and chose Martina’s hometown of Tinonee on NSWs Mid North Coast as our romantic location. Our wedding was set to be a heady combination of vintage charm, rustic chic and 1920s glamour – until we discovered local venues and hire services didn’t offer the style we had in mind.

And so Crab Apple Hire & Style began…

Dedicated to our vision, vintage chairs and décor were sourced and recycled Kauri Pine trestle tables were handmade by expert carpenters – and after the celebration was over we had our first collection of wedding and event pieces ready to hire. Word got out and the hire side of our business skyrocketed. As it turns out, many, many other couples were also keen to add a unique touch to their celebration with vintage and recycled pieces.

From there our hire range grew organically through client requests combined with us eagerly sourcing and commissioning new and exciting items just to meet demands – and today Crab Apple Hire & Style has an extensive collection of vintage and bespoke reclaimed timber pieces in industrial, rustic, country, vintage, modern, coastal, and boho…basically whatever style is asked of us.

And then there was the year that was 2020! We got married!

We’ve got some exciting news to share! While the world’s been in isolation, The Wedding Designer and Crab Apple | Hire & Style (which includes Little Wren Flowers) officially got married – and we couldn’t be happier.

This union has been a long time coming. After years of mutual admiration, we decided it was finally time to take our love to the next level. And we used the extra little bit of time we had during lockdown to make it happen.
