We are purveyors of celebrations!
We can't think of a better industry to be in than weddings and events, surrounded by ALL the good vibes and sooo much love. Sigh.
We believe that life is too darn short NOT to be celebrated! This includes personal events, just-because events and corporate events too - your employees and your business successes should also be celebrated.
Charlotte started Handmaid after she created her own wedding and couldn't believe the amount of waste and, let's not mince words, the proliferation of crap in the industry. Things just ain't made like they used to be, so she collected lots of beautiful vintage, quality and handmade items from all over. In a hire business, these can be used to make your celebration beautiful while also treading lightly on the Earth.
When her wedding was over and done with, she decided to kick her commute and legal career to the curb and start Handmaid because life really is short and while we've got it, it should be celebrated!
While Charlotte liked being a lawyer a whole heap, she freaking loves being part of people's special celebrations more - she's now surrounded by happy excited people all the time and loves the creativity of working with celebrations and events.
Charlotte's personal, warm connections with her clients, her clear communication, understanding of her clients' visions and her eye for detail has been reflected in wonderful feedback from her years at Handmaid.
She also is super fussy about who helps with Handmaid to make sure they reflect all the good feels that Handmaid is built upon. And she is so lucky to have some ridiculously special and creative Handmaidens to help.
Charlotte operates Handmaid around her beloved Irishman and her two (sometimes) little darlings and loves building her business on the beautiful Kapiti Coast
We love what we do so let us know if you need help with your next celebration - be it hire items, Sadie Swoon (our caravan bar) or styling!
