WHO ARE WE?
We're a tight knit family! Aisle Hire It consists of multi-generations: Jo and Marcus, their daughter Ellis and even (during primary school holidays) their grandson, Alexander - who gladly accepts a chocolate button or two by way of his remuneration...
Aisle Hire It is the brainchild of Ellis, who, whilst organising wedding shows and bridal catwalks back in 2013, realised that letter lights were going to be HUGE (and, luckily, she was right!) and that there was a gap in the market for high end, luxurious venue styling at a realistic and affordable price. Ellis is now a full time lawyer and is the Marketing Director of Aisle Hire It - whilst she's not running around after her son, Alexander, and treading on rogue lego (if you're a parent, you KNOW of the pain!).
Marcus is Ellis's Dad and is an all round super creative and engineeringy type chap. He's also the ultimate perfectionist, which means that every single hire item we have has been either lovingly handcrafted from scratch by Marcus (such as our luxury letter light collection, all of which is handcrafted using solid wood - you'll find no MDF rubbish with us!) or has altered items to make them work better and look even more beautiful. Marcus also lovingly restored our two 1960s carousel horses, Tess & Ann - in fact, restoration is kind of his thing, having restored his Triumph Stag and Mercedes Pagoda. When he's not making props or helping style weddings & events, Marcus is in the garage!
Jo is Ellis' Mum and is wife to Marcus. She's the ultimate working machine, who is always on hand to helpfully & speedily respond to your queries and works out the very best way that we can help you achieve your desired look. If something won't work in a particular venue, Jo will tell you - despite it often being at a financial disadvantage to us. If Jo thinks that MR & MRS letter lights will be far too cramped in a certain venue, and your initials in lights or LOVE lights would work better, she'll (politely) let you know. Jo would much rather you be over the moon with the end result, and us take a smaller financial order, than not say anything. We're honest, friendly and approachable like that!
Last but not least, there's also the Aisle Hire It Batdog, known on the street as Oscar. He will do pretty much anything in exchange for a piece of apple or sip of earl grey tea (he's one classy fox terrier!) but his lack of opposable thumbs does cause some installation issues...
All in all, we're friendly, reliable and professional - and we'd love to work with you!
