What is your most memorable wedding?
Gosh, there's so many!! One of our favourites, probably has to be our very first one (a while ago now!!) we felt so lucky and honoured to be able to play such an incredibly important part in their big day <3
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Whatever you envisage!!
What about your business are you most proud of?
I think our marquees are just the best (biased of course!) but I think our team has everything you need to help you, be it technical expertise, creative vision, imagination and contacts! We are a family unit and understand the importance of your wedding day. We treat your wedding day with as much care as we would our own, so I think we really go that extra mile to understand your dream. That's what's special, looking back at your photos and videos and just being in complete awe of how special that day was!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
USE your suppliers, ask them questions, ask for their opinion, go through the WHOLE plan with them, the more detail they have, the more they can help you to achieve the day of your dreams. INTERROGATE them, we love it!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Every wedding is completely different and there are so many things we've seen that we've fallen in love with. I think favours are generally one of the most personal touches, and the homemade/handmade ones always strike me, you can see the complete LOVE that's gone into making them.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We love to set up a meet/zoom/call first, we want to know what they envisage, their dreams, their budget. Once we've got those things, we can help them! Although a marquee is a blank canvas, there are so many different ways of creating that space, we need to know what YOU WANT! We then put together an itemised quotation, with a CAD drawing so the client can see exactly what we are offering.
How do you create an ambiance in a marquee?
There's lots of ways. Not having TOO much space is key. Lighting is also a major element, be it soft fairy lighting, or statement chandeliers. I think the guests also pay a huge role in this. Our favourite weddings are generally full of guests hugging, laughing and partying on down, THAT makes they ambience!
Where is the most exciting place that you have put a marquee?
We have some favourite venues, that offer GORGEOUS views....these have to be our favourites! they look after us too ;)
What is your record time for putting up your marquee?
For a typical sized marquee probably a day. doesn't sound like much, but it is!! Any less and we don't think it would stay up ;)
What is your favourite design of marquee and why?
WE LOVE TRADITIONAL POLE TENTS!! They are just so romantic and they feel so 'village green'.
