So just who is Betty May?
We love mismatched craziness. A deliciously offbeat wedding. Celebrations that dare to mix up eras and styles to tell their story.
We’re curators of one of a kind vintage pieces for life’s favourite moments – big and small, near and far.
We eschew trends and the idea that vintage is one of them. It’s not. It’s an enduring style that brings a whole lotta heart and evokes unforgettable excitement for the senses.
And Betty May Vintage Hire is our contribution to living a sustainable life by encouraging people to value old things. Let’s hire and recycle – not add to landfill.
We’re here for the originals, inventive and light-hearted, and we’re big believers that you find your style, you find your voice.
So use your voice. Tell your story. Take freedom and do your celebration your way.
But this still doesn’t explain the name – Betty May.
Betty May is the most amazing woman we have ever met. She’s our mother and grandmother. Betty May’s own eclectic tastes, English china collection, baking and tea drinking ways have had an enormous influence on who we are and our style and tastes.
We love her to bits and this is our way of paying homage to the most important person in our lives.
