Old Refinery hires vintage and bohemian tableware and props to couples getting married in Adelaide.
Five Minutes With…
What’s something you’d love every couple to know about hiring furniture and decor?
Using vintage or unique pieces in your wedding creates a very different feel, but make sure you book them early! A lot of our stock are one-offs, so we don’t have a store room full of the same item.
What should couples keep in mind when styling their wedding?
If you’re doing DIY, ask us for advice if you’re not sure exactly what to choose. We have thousands of pieces on our website and understand it can be a bit overwhelming!
If you’ve booked a planner or stylist, you can still hire our stock. We work with many different wedding professionals in Adelaide and are more than happy to help coordinate this for you.
How do you create a great experience for your couples?
Our couples often thank us for our efficiency, communication and reliability through the whole process. We’ll never leave you waiting long for an email response or return phone call and in five years of business we’ve never double booked anything.
All of our pricing is on our website so you can get an idea of the cost before you contact us. This also means that we won’t be inflating our hire fees – we actually discount for larger bookings.
What’s one popular question you get?
“Where are you based?” We simply state that we’re near Blackwood as we’re generally not open to the public. Many people are unsure about heading up the hill, however we’re quite close to the city and it would take you just over 20 minutes from the CBD. Or we can organise delivery for you!
What’s your best advice for couples planning their wedding right now?
DIY weddings, although not for everyone, are wonderful – especially if you want to be really hands-on or have your own sense of style that only you can create. Just make sure you delegate as much as you feel comfortable to family and friends. They’ll love being involved!
And while the excitement of the big day will get you through the pre-wedding organising, don’t forget about the post-wedding jobs. You’ll be heading off on your honeymoon or just wanting to chill out, so make sure you delegate those wrapping up tasks too. Many hands make light work!

Old Refinery was established in 2013, here in Adelaide. But our collection is far from new, with pieces over 100 years old. If you’ve found our page and you’re interested in hiring our wares, then perhaps you share our love of all things vintage and bohemian or perhaps you’re just after a completely unique style. We have a huge range of stock that you can select from online and this ensures your event can be as individual as you.
All of these pieces have a story and we’d love you to become a part of it. We have the privilege of working with people in some of the happiest times of their lives which makes our work so enjoyable.
