David and the team made all of our wedding dreams come true.

We had an absolutely perfect wedding day. We used Ribble valley marquees brand new 5 pole marquee with the solid oak floor inside. This was put up by David and his team on the top of our farm. We couldn’t have asked for more David and Margeret went above and boutons to ensure that our day went by effortlessly. We would recommend Ribble valley marquees to ANYONE having any type of wedding/party, their professionalism and attention to detail was absolutely out of this world. Thankyou soo much again,
Mr & Mrs Lancashire

The most magical day

Our wedding weekend was without a doubt the best weekend of our lives. A large part was down to Margaret, David and the team at Ribble Valley Canvas Marquees. Margaret was just wonderful from the first meeting, helping us through every process of planning. We were in expert hands and they provided a service that completely exceeded our expectations. The marquee itself was exquisite and we had so many compliments about how beautiful our wedding was. One guests described it.. “ your wedding was like a Pinterest board.” It was the most magical day, we wish we could do it all over again.

Amazing service

We weren't sure whether or not to go down the route of a marquee thinking it would be too much hassle and be easier using a venue. David and Nick took all the headache away from all of that and put our mind at rest. This resulted in a perfect special day to remember. I'd make no hesitation in recommending DNK Event Services to anybody thinking of having their wedding in an outdoor space!

Margaret & her superstars

The team at Ribble Valley marquees have been amazing from start to finish of our wedding planning process. Margaret and team not only came to survey the venue, they have consistently gone out of their way to help us plan our perfect day - making the wedding planning much easier than it otherwise would’ve been. Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel due to our original venues backing out but we sincerely want to thank everyone at Ribble Valley for everything they’ve helped us with and we will be recommending your services to everyone and anyone.

Effortless Wedding Venue

We needed a bespoke venue for our wedding after most fixed venues came back to us saying they could host our guest numbers, so we looked for a marquee.

After meeting Margaret and David at a wedding event in Kendal, the process of putting together a proposal which met our needs was effortless. Everything we asked for was catered for and more, and the list of optional extras really were optional, nothing was forced or sold to us, but each detail we did opt for made a huge difference to our day. We were kept in the loop at all times and had a site visit months ahead of the date to ensure that there were no surprises, everything would fit and logistically there were no blockers. The setup team were amazing and despite the weather conditions, the marquee was ready ahead of schedule for our internal decorating to take place. We also opted for the in-house bar, which was ran brilliantly with plenty of staff all night ensuring nobody went without their favourite drinks. The team also sorted out all of the licensing for drinks and music with the local council, another stress taken care of.

We opted for the largest marquee they had available at the time, and even with 215 guests, 230 including evening guests, there was more than enough room for everyone to be seated, enjoy their food, socialise with a drink or two and dance on the dance floor. When I say more than enough, I really mean it - the room felt huge.

All in all, we were very well looked after and one of the most stressful elements of organising the wedding (finding the venue) was taken care of with little to no stress.

Thank you Ribble Valley Canvas Marquees - would highly recommend 👍🏻

Tipi wedding

Thank you to RV Canvas for making our dream wedding become a reality and for all their hard work in the lead up to and after the big day. The tipi was spectacular and everything we ever hoped for and it was incredible to have it in a location that was so personal to us as a family.

Amazing wedding day

Ribble Valley Marquees were amazing. They were on hand at all points, we originally planned to have a smaller marquee and use another venue for bar and extra indoor space. When that venue let us down 4 weeks for our big day we were heartbroken. My wife wanted to cancel the wedding and give up on the whole day. However, thanks to David at Ribble Valley Maquees he managed to get us a bigger marquee, in a different location, with a fancy toilet block, dance floor, bar and staff, lighting and power within a very short time frame. On the day we were told by many guests that our wedding was the best they had ever been too and a lot of that was down to David and his team. So here is a massive thank you from the Robinsons.

Highly Recommend!

From booking in a date to the day of the wedding our experience was very easy and enjoyable. I felt confident in David that he understood what it was we wanted and the type of wedding we were going to have. He took his time in making sure he got the details right over a couple of phone calls and even delivered Prosecco to our house to make sure we liked it before the big day. They managed all the bar at the wedding and from what I heard from guests it was reasonably priced and lots of variety. The marquee itself was beautiful and the perfect size, everyone kept telling me how amazing it all looked we were so pleased with the whole thing.

Fantastic all round

Five star review for RVCM. Margaret provided excellent service from start to finish and really listened to what we needed for our wedding, kept in touch and was lovely to deal with. We went for the 110 person marquee package. In the lead up there was a site visit where we could ask of questions and David and Margeret were really patient and professional. The marquee itself was breathtaking and a perfect venue for our wedding. Overall, cannot recommend these guys enough. Thank you!!!!

Fantastic marquee with excellent customer service

Every aspect of the process was easy and David did everything to accommodate our vision and any last minute changes. He was even able to provide a team to tun the bar who worked tirelessly to keep up with our guests.

Gorgeous marquee and excellent service

We cannot thank David and Nick enough for making our wedding day such a success.
The petal marquee was absolutely gorgeous and fitted beautifully into my parent’s garden. The lighting and plank display looked classy and upmarket.
We organised the whole thing in 3 months and this was made possible due their professional approach, speedy replies and great advice.
They were both lovely to deal with throughout, and helped us to deal with the constant coronavirus changes that were throw our way.
I cannot thank them or recommend them enough!
