Our Story

Hello! We are Toni, Dave & Izzy! Our family run, rustic wedding hire business hopes to fill your big day with wonderful items that will make your wedding unique.

Briarwood was named after our first dog, Briar, who incidentally loved shooting and being out in the woods, so it seemed a pretty fitting name - especially with her name being a type of tree! Briar has recently passed, but her legacy lives on in the success of Briarwood.

For our own rustic themed wedding back in 2016, we created and made lots of personal decorations to make our day special and to fit our chosen countryside theme! Briarwood Rustic Wedding Hire is inspired by our love for all things natural and unrefined- the perfect imperfections. 

Dave was brought up with all things farming and introduced Toni to the way of life over seven years ago. Looking around our house and our own personal belongings, you can see our obvious love for all things rustic and wooden! 


When planning the finer details of our own wedding, we found a lot of mass produced and very polished 'natural' items which weren't to our taste and decided we would try a DIY wedding! After so many wonderful comments from our own day, we founded Briarwood as a way to share these personal touches with you to make your day as special and unique as ours. 

Toni, Dave, Briar, Nala and Izzy x
