Wedding Packages

Romance is in the air and everything is perfectly planned...

We know how important it is to share your special day and unforgettable moments with all your loved ones. Having little ones around brings such joy and life to celebrations, but sometimes keeping them entertained for the whole day can be a challenge.

That's why we developed our unique Rust & Stardust Wedding Package, to offer handmade entertainment tailored to your requirements and crafted with love.

We aim to help you relax and enjoy the day by bringing everything to keep children entertained, and supply the materials busy hosts need to make the day a breeze.

Children are at the heart of our wedding entertainment offer. We offer storytelling with puppets, craft activities and games, allowing children to enjoy and express themselves creatively.

Each story we tell is refreshingly unique - just like you. Our thrilling tales are all original and our puppets, sets and costumes are handcrafted and utterly bespoke.

Everything we do is small and beautiful, so we can create a special experience for you at reassuringly competitive rates.

Please contact us to discuss possibilities for your wedding, and let us get to work sprinkling stardust for your special day.

Rust & Stardust is available for private hire, including for special birthdays, exclusive parties, festivals, fairs, and seasonal events.
