Covid 19

As weddings are resuming later in the year, I am taking bookings for appointments to hire hats or fascinators, or for consultations for bespoke items. According to Government regulations appointments will need to be after 12th April*.

However, I will continue to be cautious so please be aware that you will be asked to sanitize hands and follow guidelines. Please wear a mask, although you may remove this to choose a hat/fascinator. Please do not attend if you are feeling at all unwell as per the usual Government guidelines – appointments can easily be re-scheduled. Please attend either alone or with one other person from your household.

All hats that have been handled/tried on during an appointment will be “quarantined” for 72 hours. I may therefore suggest a later date for an appointment to ensure this time lapse and to be sure that all hats are virus free.

Prior to collection of your hat before your special occasion, it will be removed from display and boxed at least 72 hours before collection, and quarantined again on return.

If you have any concerns regarding attending at Mad Hatters, please do not hesitate to telephone me to discuss your appointment.

*Weddings of 6 people are allowed prior to this, so if you require a hat please get in touch as we could arrange an appointment outside in an open barn!
