nanny nellie's attic

Beautiful, timeless, vintage pieces always catch my eye! They inspire me to put together a creation as individual as you, while encompassing the aspirations of your theme along with a practical budget

I guess Nanny Nellie's Attic is a natural fit for me.   After discovering a hidden talent for window dressing several years ago, which received many compliments, I decided to exploit my flair and enthusiasm for all things vintage; it’s so absorbing and provides much personal enjoyment.

Talking to each couple and listening to their ideas for the wedding day gives me the right scope for styling, according to their wishes. It's so important to create the right atmosphere, while conceptualising on the couple's chosen theme.  Using the vintage tableware, china, cutlery and complementary props, I have endless resources to offer as much or as little as anyone desires.

Far from being the "standard hirer", I will listen to the detail, work alongside the couple to bring together their ideas and wishes and I'm always happy to source any other bits and pieces needed too!  There’s something special about working with such varied pieces from rustic ladders, a vintage cup and saucer to a string of pearls.

Nanny Nellie's Attic is considered to reflect the vital things you expect from a Nanny – someone you go to who is trustworthy, dependable and listens and as for the Attic, that's where you'll find all the delightful treasures for your wedding day!  From a simple afternoon English tea party to a more elaborate dinner we are happy to supply as much or as little as you want.

"We used Nanny Nellie's to hire crockery for an afternoon tea birthday party. The crockery was beautiful, and set the scene for the party amazingly. Sarah was so helpful in advising us what we needed and the process of collecting and dropping off. Will definitely use again if the situation arises! Thank you so much.


"I am a wedding photographer and I've worked alongside lots of people in the 5 years I have been photographing weddings.  Sometimes there are just some people who go that bit extra and Sarah is one of those people!

It was a privilege working alongside Sarah.  If she hadn't have told me she had only just started up her venture, I would have thought she had been doing it for years!  She went above and beyond. ensuring everything was perfect and ran as smoothly as it could have. 

I would highly recommend her to any of my clients who may be seeking vintage china hire, cutlery and gorgeous wedding accessories.  Anyone doing so will not be disappointed!

Wishing Sarah much success in the future with this fabulous venture".


"I hired Nanny Nellie's Attic for my wedding (vintage china hire, cutlery and gorgeous wedding accessories).  I honestly can't thank Sarah enough! She will make sure everything runs smoothly for you, our cutlery and china was all ready and laid out the evening before the wedding and her wedding accessories (ladders, bird cages, jars and tea lights etc) were all perfectly placed around our venue.  We did the catering ourselves so having Sarah do the cutlery and china hire meant we didn't have to wash up everything which was a huge help for us!  I couldn't fault her service and I would highly recommend her!"
