We care about your special day
Highly experienced and knowledgeable team
Huge range of well-maintained equipment
Established 25 years
At Richardson Event Hire we have 25 years of experience providing the highest quality equipment for weddings and events across Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds.
As an established hire company, our aim is to assist you every step of the way as you plan and deliver the perfect event. Whether you’re having a few friends round for dinner or organising a wedding for hundreds of guests, we can help.
We supply premium quality tableware and equipment, with both luxury and cost-effective options for all types of events and venues. Our clients range from caterers and event planners to hotels, pubs, venues and private individuals and we’ve established long-standing relationships with many of them.
All of our crockery, cutlery and glassware is hand-washed to remove stubborn stains such as lipstick, before being washed in an industrial dishwasher at high temperatures using ‘reverse osmosis’ water to eliminate water marks and give an exceptional finish.
Our catering equipment is thoroughly cleaned and tested every time it’s hired, and gas appliances are tested on site at the point of delivery. All electrical equipment is PAT tested and gas equipment is certified annually by a gas safe engineer.
We stock a wide range of furniture including six different chair types as well as rustic wooden benches. Tables can be round or rectangular in various sizes, and we’ve manufactured our own 6’ x 3’ rustic trestle tables which can be dressed up or down to suit the event. We also supply dance floors, staging and bars as well as useful extras such as high chairs, bar accessories and cake stands
As a family owned business, we offer a very personal service to our customers. We take pride in the products that we hire so everything is well maintained and carefully packaged. We supply both large and small events, giving the same care and attention to every one of them. Our friendly team work tirelessly to create your vision and are always happy to chat through your ideas and offer expert advice at every stage of the planning process.

"I just wanted to say a big thank-you to you and your team, which was a big part of making the day perfect. Thank-you for making the process fun rather than a stress. The team were really incredible - they answered all of our questions before we even had to ask them!"
"Richardson’s are very good at their job. They understood and listened to our requirements; making suggestions where needed. They were very efficient and everything was as expected. They also helped provide lots of additional information to assist in other areas of the wedding such as the decorations for the tables and room. They were happy to help and made us feel welcome. I would recommend them to anyone."
"I just wanted to write to thank you so much for all your kind help with the wedding last weekend. We had the most magical day and we cannot thank you enough for helping to make it all possible. Your team were so wonderfully helpful and everything was just as we hoped it would be. It looked quite wonderful at the point of the wedding."
"Richardson Event Hire were second to none operations wise at my recent wedding in Wiltshire - their expertise both logistically and visually resulted in seamless service and took the pressure away from my family, which proved very reassuring for them over such an important event to organise – nothing was too much trouble and it was a pleasure to deal with this supportive, friendly team - the end result was a perfect Wedding Day."
