Options and Aktuel also rent out professional quality catering equipment. Again, your caterer will usually take care of this side of things for you but if you or someone in your entourage decides to do the catering for your wedding then Options or Aktuel might be a good port of call if you need any extra equipment such as BBQs, serving dishes &  utensils, chafing dishes, fridges and coffee machines.

Both Options and Aktuel’s websites are very easy to use, you can obtain a quote online using an ‘add to basket’ system and view photos and descriptions of all products.
