We hired 6ft letters for our wedding. From first contact Typical Type were so responsive and accommodating. After being... a bit undecisive nothing was ever too much hassle especially given the workload of the wedding industry at the moment! The letters and heart looked amazing, we couldn't recommend using Typical Type enough!Thank You!read more

Massive thanks to the Typical Type team for what looked to us like a seamless set up on Friday! We planned and DIY’ed... most elements of our day, and I’m confident we couldn’t have done that without Barry’s prompt responses to all our questions. His communication throughout our entire wedding planning process (including a postponement) has been on point. On the day the team turned up ahead of time, and already had all the tables set up before we arrived, which made for a really swift set up!The venue looked incredible and the table layout worked so well for mingling with our gorgeous guests! The Edison bulbs over the bar looked amazing, and the outdoor lighting & benches drew everyone back outside after dinner.We danced the whole night away out on the patio under the stars - it was pure magic. Thanks for all your hard work behind the scenes to help make it happen.Mr & Mrs Dexterread more

We couldn't have been happier with everything Typical Type did for us on our wedding day. Barry was incredibly helpful... and attentive from the first time we got in touch right through to the day itself, helping us bring our dream wedding to life. And on the day, the lighting in and around the barn was absolutely stunning. It looked magical and was everything we could have hoped it would be. Guests kept coming up to my wife and I to tell us how amazing the venue looked.We would absolutely recommend Typical Type to anyone and everyone. They were helpful, friendly and did an incredible job of making our big day look better than we could have imagined. Thank you so much.Mr and Mrs Hoodread more

I have worked with Typical Type many times for weddings and they are always great, they come back to you quickly and... always deliver what they promise. When it came to organising a baby shower for one of my friends I knew I definitely wanted them to be involved. And I was not disappointed. We hired one of their new white washed tables along with a B and a star and everything worked perfectly! Thank you again and I will definitely continue to use you for future events.read more

Absolutely brilliant!! I hired these lights for my daughters 2nd birthday, and the whole experience dealing with... Typical Type was fantastic!! Their communication was excellent and they were hugely accommodating. They delivered and installed the lights at a time that was convenient to myself and did a thorough set up to ensure everything was working correctly, an absolute pleasure to deal with. The lights themselves created that extra bit of magic for my daughters 'lockdown birthday' and I would certainly recommend!! Thanks so much - you really did make it extra special!read more
