The venerable and well-experienced Elsie Florence is a delightful specialist wedding company operating out of Wincanton in South Somerset. The core of their business involves the rental of delicate, extremely well-kept and truly beautiful vintage teacups and saucers. In fact, they have over 400 teasets to offer to even the largest of events.

Move on from the core of the business and to their equally interesting other services, such as the provision of handmade bunting (which can be made to order if required), a gorgeous range of linens, hampers for wedding gifts, crockery displays and china containers of various styles for arranging flowers and presenting cakes or other food!


Elsie Florence is a vintage crockery and decoration supplier based in Wincanton. The business is run by Sara Kirkby, who named it after her grandmother - Elsie Florence!

Inspired by her grandmother's love for vintage crockery, and having worked in design consultancy in the fashion and interiors industry for many years, Sara decided to start collecting and start up her hire and decoration enterprise as far back as 2002. Now in the business for over 12 years, she has gained quite a reputation for service quality.

The Crockery

Elsie Florence's collection of bone china is some of the finest available for hire in the UK. Over the years, proprietor Sara Kirkby has assembled over 400 authentic vintage sets, and her intricate knowledge of all the colours, variations, shapes and types of china she has at her disposal means that she can select the perfect combination for your special day. Each individual set comes complete with cup, saucer and tea-plate.
