Swell Event Hire – Dunedin Wedding Hire and Stylists

After a search that spanned most of the lower South Island, Swell Event Hire came about from not being able to find wooden trestles for our own wedding.  With our wedding day approaching my (now) very handy husband crafted a beautiful set of ten wooden trestle tables.  Fast forward two years and we have increased our table numbers and added some beautiful extras.

The Swell team has a love for vintage and classic design and you’ll see this come through in our growing collection of furniture and props.  Our aim is to offer our couples beautiful, modern, contemporary pieces that you aren’t going to find everywhere else.

We make the process of hiring furniture as seamless and as easy as possible.  From your first initial contact email or phone call through to when we deliver your furniture and hug you good luck, we’ll work closely alongside you.

The team at Swell are pretty excited to bring you a set of classic lounge furniture which will be available this summer!

Lots of you have been asking us for a while when we’d get lounge furniture in our collection (I know we hear you!!).

Ultimately we’ve wanted to make sure what we sourced meets your needs, fits with our style, is unique and has elements of vintage!!!

We’ve got two stunning Malawi “occasional chairs” (in the main picture), two “Sophia” lounge chairs and (not shown yet) a gorgeous vintage daybed which is currently being restored.  We’ve picked a colour palette that suits Dunedin’s coastal environment – think classic “Hampton’s” style meets wild coastal Dunedin and you’ve got it!   As well we’ll be adding a few delicious extras like snuggly rugs (because let’s face it, in Dunedin these can be used year round!).

The lounge furniture isn’t on our website yet but everything, including the daybed, will be available for hire from 1 November! To find out more just drop us a line on enquiries@swelleventhire.co.nz

We consider it a privilege to be asked to be part of a client’s wedding.  Seeing the happiness on people’s faces is something that will continually drive us.
