I would highly recommend this company. My daughter’s wedding had to be brought forward at the last minute (thanks to lockdown 2.0) and they were really helpful. Not only did they change the booking but responded very quickly to my enquiries. I would definitely use them again.

Co-ordination are such a fantastic company. I work regularly with them in the wedding industry and are my go to when I organise styled photo-shoots. I love that they have the essential items for weddings but also more abstract pieces as well.

I was in admiration of their warehouse which is full of gorgeous stock ranging from tables, chairs and glassware.

Thanks Co-ordination!
