Surrey

Dear Dave,

We just wanted to write to thank you so much for providing the most perfect marquee for our wedding.

You were an absolute pleasure to deal with from when we first enquired about the marquee till the marquee was taken down. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends getting married in the future as we couldn’t fault the service or product!

Thanks again for helping to make our day so special.

Charlotte and Mike, June 2018
