Our Story

Briarwood was inspired by 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 almost eight years ago. Looking around our house and our own personal belongings, you can see our obvious love for all things rustic and wooden! 

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.

Briarwood has rapidly expanded over the last couple of years and we now also cater for all events, not just weddings! Engagements, birthday parties, children's parties, christenings, you name it - we can do it! 

We have been featured in two editions of Yorkshire Bride and Living North Weddings and are recommended suppliers for many venues across North Yorkshire and County Durham. We have recently become founding members of the brand new Unveiled Network too - watch this space for exciting news coming soon!
