Enhance your wedding venue with trees and shrubs

Enhance your wedding venue with trees and shrubs

Do you know anyone getting married this year or holding a special event? If the answer is yes, have they considered the hiring of trees and shrubs to decorate a church, marquee or another venue?

We are finding that the hiring of our trees and shrubs for events, particularly weddings, is becoming more and more popular. The addition of trees and shrubs can give a more natural feel to your venue, and we’re able to offer most of our stock for tree hire.

Trees available include:

  • Multi-stem
  • Standards
  • half standards
  • Topiaries

If you would like to consider tree hire for your event, we would highly recommend a visit to us as far in advance as possible. You’ll then be able to see exactly what we have available.

What we will need to know:

  • The venue access and size
  • The dates needed
  • The theme/style of event

Once we know this information, we can make informed suggestions for your event. We are unable to hold plants for hire until two weeks before your event but are always available to discuss possible alternatives to avoid disappointment.

Delivery and collection service

We offer a delivery and collection service of the trees and shrubs you hire. The prices are in accordance with our normal delivery charges. If you would prefer to collect and return your plants, this can also be accommodated. We are happy to position them for you, subject to the venue being ready for this.

We recommend having the plants delivered two days prior to the event and normally collect as soon as possible afterwards. This is flexible and we will try to fit in with your requirements as much as we can.

Water for the trees and shrubs

The most important point to remember is to water the plants! This is vital and sometimes can be overlooked when you are busy sorting out the rest of your event. Failure to water may cause the plants to suffer. In the event of this happening, the hirer would be responsible for paying the full retail value of any plant that fails due to lack of maintenance, is damaged, or not returned.


Our trees and shrubs are all in plastic containers. We are very happy for these pots, trees and shrubs to be decorated. We only ask that all decorations are removed before collected/returned and that the plants aren’t damaged in the process.

At a recent wedding at Arundel Castle, the bride and groom chose Sorbus aria Lutescens to be displayed either side of the aisle. With their delicate pale green foliage, they looked stunning. We received a lot of positive feedback from this particular wedding. Another recent enquiry has been using fruit trees for an autumn wedding.

If you would like more information about our tree hire service, please do not hesitate to contact us.
