Our Returns Policy
We hope that you are happy with your purchase but for your complete peace of mind we offer a 21 day returns policy*.
*With the exception of made to measure and personalised items (these are items which have been made or altered to your own specific requirements or which have been embroidered with names, dates etc.).
Covid-19 Returns policy update:
We understand that many christenings, weddings and events have been cancelled or delayed due to lockdown in the UK. We are trying to operate a fair system of returns for all our customers. We’re sure that you can understand that we are only a small family run business and are unable to offer refunds for everyone that has been affected where orders were received more than 28 days ago. We have, however, tried to help as many of our customers as we can by adding the following amendments to our returns policy. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Our returns policy states that all orders that are no longer required (with the exception of personalised and bespoke items) can be returned for exchange or refund within 21 days of recipt.
We have now reviewed this policy as follows:
1. For customers who received their orders less than 21 days ago but no longer require their items:
We can no longer offer an exchange but will, of course, refund in full on receipt of returned items in their original condition. If you feel that it is unsafe for you to return your items within 21 days of receipt of your order please contact us and we will advise.
2. For customers who received their items 21 to 42 days ago:
Please contact us. We can offer to issue a credit note for the value of your items (less delivery charge) if we have received notification from you within 42 days of receipt of your order.
3. If you have received your order more than 42 days ago.
We regret we are unable to offer a refund or credit note. We will, however, be happy to supply copies of your invoice for those who have taken out events insurance upon request.
**If you are a customer that returned items in exchange for a credit note and are unable to spend it because we are closed please email us and we will be happy to help.**
Thank you for your understanding in what is a difficult time for all of us.
