The Rustic Barn is an evolving collection of hand-crafted wedding hire and home decor offered by a couple of newly-weds.
Our story combines three loves
We love Love, we love People and we love our Planet.
We are passionate about celebrating love, providing quality products and services, and not just caring for our environment, but investing in it for our future. Through our Reclaimed | Restored | Re-purposed ethos, we make sustainable business our everyday business.
We’re boutique but have a big impact. We focus local and change the world.
Who We Are
Every member of our team holds a current Police Clearance and a Child Related Employment Screening Check so you can be sure that you and your family are in safe hands.
Visionary | Ideas Man | Engineer | Craftsman
Andrew is the visionary, the craftsman and brings the technical expertise. He's a real people person, passionate about social justice, loves learning new things and makes Tess laugh more than anyone else in the world. When he's not in The Rustic Barn workshop you'll either find him enjoying a beer, telling a funny story, cooking up a storm or researching his next project.
Business Manager | Booking coordinator
Tess takes care of the details and will respond to your wedding or function enquiry swiftly. She’s a qualified business professional who will make sure we liaise with you, your wedding venue and/or your nominated contact person, confirm all our details in advance and ensure our service on your special day is seamless. When she's not in the office, she'll be enjoying a glass of lemon infused water, op-shopping, 'supervising' Andrew in The Rustic Barn workshop or practicing the art of homemaking and hospitality.
what we do
We create in The Rustic Barn workshop to produce unique, innovative and quality assured wedding prop and furniture hire and hand-crafted home decor from reclaimed materials. Our rustic wedding hire collection covers your wedding hire needs including ceremony seating, wedding arbour, wine barrels and more. Our rustic home decor collection offers affordable and quality assured hand-made gifts for your loved ones or the home.
We work with integrity and craft with elegance as we restore and up-cycle old materials. With deep confidence in our collection we believe you will be very happy with it too. Each long, short, thin, sturdy, heavy or light piece of wood is perfectly imperfect. We reclaim and recycle materials so every creation is a beautiful blend of history from its previous life and rich character of its new design.
what we believe
We believe that rustic is beautiful and beauty is powerful.
We all know that the smallest things in life are often the most meaningful- it's the same with creating a rustic atmosphere of romance and love. Rustic isn't a lack of style, but it's a style of profound simplicity. At The Rustic Barn, we believe in the intimacy, charm and beauty of rustic decor.
We also believe that we are all unique, "beautifully and wonderfully made". We love that every wedding is a unique occasion to reflect who you are and to celebrate your commitment to journey together. So we don't try to sell you anything you don't love. We work with you to bring your ideas to life and help you design the intimate occasion in which you will create your life-long memories.
how we're different
We care for the environment and we recycle, reclaim, restore and re-purpose materials as often as we can. In fact, we love doing this! We adore the true, raw character of materials that have already lived once and get the opportunity to be transformed into something new. We believe that nothing is out of reach, that all that is old has the potential to be made new again.
But when you're planning a wedding or looking for a gift, the options are endless and the advertising can be suffocating. Who do you trust and where do you start?
We've been there and know exactly how chaotic it can be. So to help you see how we're different we've put a lot of thought into the things we promise to do. This is to introduce ourselves, to reassure you that we know there are suppliers who don't deliver what they promise, and to show you why we're not like them.
Our commitment to you really stems from our values. Our ten core values are what we believe rest at the heart of a good lifestyle, good relationships and good business.
