Full Description
At FM Tents we love the great outdoors and our unique and alternative collection of tents enables our clients to embrace this in style. Along with the tents we also have a diverse range of accessories to help create just the look you want. With our in-house styling and planning service we can take the stress out of coordinating all other suppliers and details that are easily forgotten. We like things a little bit different, that is to say, not your average marquee. We think our tents speak for themselves. The diverse range of styles and sizes means that we can provide something for everyone. Most importantly we love our job and hope this shines through in our work. Our passion extends to the way in which we work including making conscious day-to-day decisions to improve or maintain our most efficient service. The office runs using 100% renewable energy as well as our webhost, which is powered by 100% renewable energy. We source equipment from UK suppliers/manufacturers where possible and have even been known to make some of our own furniture. These small things add up to a lot in environmental terms and we are constantly striving to improve and lessen our footprint.

What is your most memorable wedding?

To not say our own would be wrong, but so many of our clients have created stunning weddings it's hard to choose. As a husband and wife team, we remember every one.

What about your business are you most proud of?

How it has grown and the clients we have worked with whilst retaining a personal touch. We are a small family business and feel we offer our clients the best service remaining this way.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Have a weather contingency plan. Planning an outdoor wedding in the UK it's always good to be prepared.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

One of our clients used Laurel leaves as place settings, writing names beautifully with a chalk pen. This not only looks stunning but was wonderfully eco friendly too!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After an initial email or telephone conversation we will provide a tailored quote. We can also undertake a no obligation site visit, which is usually very helpful to discuss things face to face and find the best positioning for a structure. If all are happy we ask for a 30% deposit to secure the date & equipment. Additional items can still be added up-to a month before the wedding (subject to availability). We will continue to be at the end of the phone or email to help with anything you might need until the agreed setup date.

How do you create an ambiance in a marquee?

Our structures aren't like an average marquee so don't need a lot of decor to create ambience. Lighting however is a great addition and brings things to life at night!

Where is the most exciting place that you have put a marquee?

At Bridget Jones' wedding in the film Bridget Jones' Baby.

What is your record time for putting up your marquee?

4 mins for a bell tent. 4 hours for our Grand Pavilion Yurt.
