We sat down with Rell & Co, one of the coolest new sustainable wedding hire and event start ups in Sydney to learn more about them and how they are saving the planet, all while helping you save time and money on your wedding – how cool is that!
They have definitely won us over and we think they will win you over too – not only are they super super cost effective but they are committed to caring for people and the planet!
Give us the run down on Rell & Co:
Rell & Co is a hire and end to end event and wedding business, for purpose and committed to caring for people and the planet. We offer sustainable, ethical and beautiful event and wedding hire elements to set that special day apart and make the experience amazing.
It’s about providing people with a pathway to ensuring their event doesn’t cost too much, and positively contributes to the environment and the supply chain. It’s hard to be responsible in the way we consume, people need easy solutions and we have a model that delivers that. Weddings can create so much waste and cost ridiculous amounts; we want to change that and make it all easier!
Where did the idea for Rell & Co come from?
I couldn’t find anyone hiring tabletop items that I wanted when I was planning my own wedding reception – I didn’t want plain white plates and polyester napkins, but that was all that was really on offer. I knew there were so many more beautiful options when it comes to the things you can buy for your tabletop at home, so I thought why not make that available for hire for events? At the same time Dave was becoming more aware and passionate about finding information around a more ethical and sustainable lifestyle in such a consumerist culture, and it just made sense to combine the two and create Rell & Co.
