Bee Smith Millinery offers a range of hat hire options to suit the occasion. Her hats can be hired for all major events. There are styles to suit all occasions whether it’s for a wedding, Royal Ascot or a statement headpiece for an event.

We offer hat hire for a long weekend (4 days) or up to a week (5-10 days), along with daily hire for Royal Ascot.

We recommend you book at least 2 weeks before your event, to avoid disappointment. Please note Royal Ascot gets booked up quickly.

You are welcome to visit the studio to try on our hat hire range, before you make your choice.

We encourage hire hats to be collected from the studio in Kingston. Alternatively we can send hats in the post. The postage will be an additional charge.
