Testimonials

Yorkshire
I wanted to say thank you to you and your team for all their help in setting up and running our marquee. We had a wonderful, happy day. We were fortunate that the weather calmed down and it stopped raining in time for the site to dry out, enabling us to cut grass and have you erect the marquee. There were many compliments on the marquee and the decorations. All in all, we had a lovely day and the part you played in making it such is much appreciated.
