Frequently asked questions
WHAT’S ON OFFER?
Crockery Hire in Bristol and South West UK
Enamelware Events is here to supply you with simple dinnerware for your event. It works really well with DIY and outdoor weddings where you’re starting with a blank canvas, but also in more formal settings too. I’m a really resourceful person so just love people making use of the enamelware to add a special touch to their event, while also fulfilling a need. It’s one less thing to think about, buy, or throw away.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ENAMELWARE?
Well, it looks fab, it’s light to transport, hard to break, and has a classic look. For some people, it reminds them of a homely kitchen; for others it’s being in the outdoors, cooking on a fire. But for some reason, there are few places in the UK that offer hire of enamelware. And that’s when I found a rare elegant design with a grey rim – perfect for any colour scheme and with a natural look to fit in with any outdoor event, too. It feels like the perfect middle ground between biodegradable or disposable dinnerware and china, somewhere between informal and formal dinnerware. It’s also a zero waste option.

HOW LONG IS THE HIRE PERIOD?
Depending on the day of your event and when collection is possible, it is 4-5 days. If you need longer, we can arrange this at an extra cost, not exceeding 30 days. Any extension to the rental period must be agreed and specified in the hiring contract, but we can chat about that.
ARE YOU BASED IN BRISTOL?
Yes, I live in Bristol and have supplied enamelware for event planners and wedding couples across Bristol, Bath, the Cotswolds, and Gloucester. I know a lot of the venues in Bristol, especially the outdoorsy kind and would be happy to offer ideas as you plan your wedding or event.
DO YOU DELIVER ACROSS THE UK?
To keep the business as green as possible, I offer free collection and drop off from the Enamelware Events HQ in North Bristol (BS16). If you are within the South West UK but can’t do this, I will quote for a small delivery charge for the trips to the venue (up to about 1hr drive from Bristol) where possible. Please get in touch for a quote.
DO WE HAVE TO WASH EVERYTHING?
Yes. I do not offer a wash-up service.
IS THERE A MINIMUM SPEND?
If you are collecting and dropping back to me, £15 is the minimum.
However, if it involves delivery and collection then we’d need a minimum order of £100. This amount does not include the cost for delivery and collection.
CAN I ADD ANYTHING ON TO MY EXISTING ORDER?
Additional items can be accommodated where available – please get in touch.
CAN I REMOVE SOMETHING FROM MY ORDER?
When a deposit is paid, you have secured all of the items on your quotation. It is generally not possible to reduce the order value or items required prior to the event as the items could have been made available for other customers to hire. Exceptions may be possible if notice is given well enough in advance. If in doubt, please get in touch.
