    The Best There Is

    These guys are just the best. Alex and the whole team are just so friendly, helpful and full of suggestions. They'll guide you through the process but equally if you are the type of person who is full of ideas they're so good at making it happen. The marquees are the best around - no CSI-style forensic boxes here - and look absolutely stunning. Can't recommend enough.

    Original Marquees provided the marquee for our wedding this year, the marquee was beautiful and everyone commented on how good it looked. They helped us out a lot when choosing the layout and decorations without ever pushing anything onto us. Alex and the team where quick to respond to all our questions and their expertise made the whole process less stressful. We would highly recommend using Original Marquees and we’d just like to say thanks for everything.

    Original Marquees were perfect from start to finish. Clear quotations, always contactable, very flexible, and nothing was too much trouble. We had some very last minute additions due to hot weather, and it all went perfectly. The guys were a pleasure to have around, and take exceptional care of their tents - they look like they've never been used! They hugely put my mind at rest!

    We used Original Marquees for our wedding in May this year- they are truly fantastic!! The marquee looked stunning and every detail was thought of. The team that set it up were punctual, helpful and very skilled. Alex went the extra mile to make sure everything was just as we wanted it and was always quick to answer any questions we had. I could not recommend Original Marquees more highly. Stunning Marquee with 5 star service. Thank you!!

    Tim and I want to say a huge huge thankyou for your wonderful marquee service at our wedding. We could not have asked for a more magical structure to house our reception nor more professional and polite people to deal with in its installation and removal.  You took care of many elements including the supply of tables chairs, of lovely loos and a generator and the stunning bar. Your team were incredibly friendly and efficient and we thoroughly enjoyed working with you to create our dream setting! We can’t wait to recommend your company to our friends and family in the future!

    Just a note to say a massive thank you to you and your team and for the amazing marquee we had for our wedding. We couldn't believe it when we saw it, it was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have imagined it any better.  Everyone commented on how beautiful the tent was and we couldn't have agreed more. Thank you for being so easy to work with and for all your hard work putting it up and taking it down. We honestly had the best day of our lives and we are so grateful for it all.

    What can we say?! Wow! The tent surpassed expectations - everyone loved it. My parents were very impressed (not always an easy task!). And all the communication, set up and take down was perfect. Thank you for creating such a special place for such a memorable day. Warmest wishes R & A
