Customer Comments

Dear Rupert

Just to say thank you for all the effort you put in on Fri/Sat to ensure we had all we needed. Your service staff were superb which meant that we could relax and enjoy the evening. The marquee erectors were equally efficient.

Thank you for all your contributions which made the evening.

A note to thank you and your team for the hard work you put into creating the pre-season event we were hoping for, I look forward to future opportunities


Arsenal Football Club

Hi Rupert and Susan

Can I please just repeat my huge gratefulness for the amazing job you did Saturday, I cannot fault a single thing.  Not only that, as you could tell we were all clearly novices at organising this type and size of event and you’re experience and never ending support, advice and last minute acts of rescue work and adaptability ensured that we all had a brilliant time and everything ran smoothly.

Please pass on my thanks to the whole of your team in my experience of attending events like this with mass catering, it is very unusual to receive so many compliments about the food.  The backstage smile board obviously works Susan because the your team were excellent.

I have already had so many complimentary emails about the event.

Best wishes


Dear Rupert,

Thank you so much Rupert for all your support of our fundraising dinner dance, by not only providing the marquee bit also by joining us with your guests for the evening.

Dear Rupert

Just a quick note to say thank you to you and your staff for helping us arrange an extremely successful Birthday party.

Your vision on how to site the marquee was much appreciated- which we wouldn’t have thought of.

It was a fantastic evening.

Kind regards

Kevin and Susan Dean

Dear Rupert

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help at our open day the other week.

The marquee was beautiful and the equipment was first class which all helped make our Open Day that much more successful.

Your guys who erected and took down the marquee were both quick and professional.

It is so refreshing to deal with a company that delivers what they promise.

We will definitely be using you again at our next event

Once again Thank you.

Kind regards

Dear Rupert,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and Susan for doing such a great job on the marquee and decorations for our Woodstock party.  Everything went beautifully and looked fantastic, and you were both a pleasure to deal with.

Looking forward to seeing you again at our next celebration.

Best wishes

Thank you for your excellent service and attention to detail.

Bruce Garidge

Now that the dust has settled and we are back in the real world we just wanted to say a big thank you for providing us with the perfect wedding. The whole day was perfect from start to finish and we loved every minute and the marquee looked like fairyland when we got there.

Thanks again

Jane and Rob Jackson

Dear Rupert

Thank you for going that extra mile for us. You listened to what we wanted and delivered even more than that. We can’t possibly  thank you enough.

Your staff really do care about getting everything right- all of them. The designers were so passionate about how it would all look and the crew who put the whole thing together so meticulous about every detail.  The staff who worked so tirelessly and professionally on the night, all of them, so friendly and smiley and super-efficient. They looked very smart and couldn’t do enough for us, despite our large number.

You recommendations for the band turned out to be as amazing as you promised which was a huge relief. We know from previous events, ( before we were recommended to you!) if you get that wrong it can ruin the night!

The food, the atmosphere, every last detail was so perfect and we have had an unprecedented amount of positive feedback from our guests.

And afterwards, the clear up, done in a flash and you were gone!

As I have already said at the start, we really can’t thank you enough.

Warmest Regards.

Mrs Dixon

Dear Rupert

I am not sure we can ever thank you enough for all you did for us for our wedding day. We had an amazing time.

The marquee was simply stunning and if you ever needed proof of how watertight the marquee was well you certainly got that on 27 June. You also got proof of how sturdy the dance floor was with all the Greek dancing that took place.

I was particularly impressed with the evening bar staff, the “head girl” was just excellent and so on top of things. Their cocktails were great too. Exactly what we hoped for.

Thank you once again for all your help and support. We know where to come next time.

Kind regards



You did us proud again. You team are a credit to you and the food was


We will definitely keep in touch.

Thanks a million.



Maria Watts Director Strategic Alliances

Dear Rupert, We just wanted to send you a quick note to say an almighty thank you to you, Susie and all your team for Saturday and the week leading up to it, THANK YOU!!! The day was completely spectacular and went ten times better than we ever expected. My cheeks hurt so much from grinning so much I nearly had to ice my face the next day!! It really was the best day ever, I just want to do it all over again!! I know that you all worked so hard and it could not have been more appreciated. The DJ was excellent as well! Many, many, many thanks


Dear Rupert

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and to say the marquee looked wonderful making the event a great success.

We have already set the date for next year so perhaps you could pencil us in.

Thanks once again

Kind regards

Hi Rupert and Susan

I just wanted to say that we had a really fantastic day and were delighted with everything you did for us. The white twinkling ceiling in the marquee really added something special to the feel of the room- it was perfect. And thank you also for the friendly bar service.

We had tonnes of compliments from our guests- lots saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

Thanks again for everything.

Jo and Jamie Malam

To Rupert and crew

Thank you for a highly professional and totally trouble free service.

Judy and Richard Summer

Dear Rupert and Susie,

Thank you both so very much for the amazing work you did to make last night’s Ball such a huge success.  The marquee looked absolutely stunning and everyone was bowled over by the décor when they walked in.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was impeccable.  All your staff were so courteous, friendly and professional – nothing was too much trouble.

I have received so many messages and emails today, thanking us for such a fabulous event.  We really appreciate all the effort you put in to make it so special for us and I will certainly recommend you to any of my friends or colleagues for future events.

Please pass on our warmest thanks to everyone involved in making our Ball such a huge success.  I cannot begin to express how grateful we are.

Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend and I hope you manage to get some rest!

Thank you both so much once again,

I just wanted to say thank you for the marquee hire. I couldn’t believe how big it was when I saw it- which was a good thing. Your advice and suggestions were invaluable to us and the ducted heating system our saving grace. If I had realised how efficient it was I would have opted for it myself so a special thanks for that.

Although the weather did not hold out once I saw the marquee I felt much better as all would be fine with marquee as shelter. My Mum was telling me for ages how neatly you worked unloading and building it and protecting it all so it didn’t get dirty. Once we came back from Sunday lunch it was all gone as if had never been there.

We had a fabulous day and all your additions were the centre of it all so thank you very much.

Kind regards

Fiona and Neil

Dear Rupert

Thank you so much for all your help, you were wonderful throughout. The day would not have been so special without you expertise, professionalism and added kindness.

You extra gift of more ceiling twinkles was so unexpected and so perfect( just like you)

Thanks again


Georgina, George, Chancy and Gregg

Dear Rupert.

I thought it was about time I dropped you a formal note to thank you for making such a significant contribution to the undoubted success of our Panshanger based events.

The initial challenges of how to take up the long narrow site – and the significant slope – seemed to take no time at all to resolve.  The framework for the banners around the old house site – which surprised and pleased even our most sceptical guests – also seemed to get sorted very easily.

The marquee and floral decorations exactly matched – and maybe even exceeded the brief – in terms of using natural colours and arrangements to reflect our Grade 2* listed park.

The food was to die for (well, not literally!)

A special mention should go to the unfailing professionalism of all your staff – who all contributed to charming our guests and making the Friday event one they would remember for a long time.

Although the Friday VIP event was most important to us, the Monday drop in session was definitely most challenging in terms of the absolutely atrocious weather conditions – both over the weekend and on the day itself.  We were understaffed (at very short notice) and I think I noticed Noah moored his ark up in the car park – but despite that, your own good humour, common sense and sheer professionalism steered us safely through the very stormy waters. We really couldn’t have done this without you.

On behalf of both Lafarge Tarmac and myself, I would like to congratulate you and your team for your patience, support, good humour and absolute professionalism across the entire period.

Many, many thanks.



RR Environmental Communications Ltd

Many thanks, such a well organised and efficient organisation. It helped to make our special day a success.

Nigel Pritchard

When we set out to plan our wedding, 10 companies visited us initially and no-one was prepared to build a tent in the tight space we need to.

Rupert and his team not only achieved this by building a stunning marquee but transformed our garden into a magical and beautiful place for the wedding.

They went way beyond our expectations in terms of planning, problem solving and design. The extreme attention to detail and professionalism totally eliminated any potential stresses and catastrophes from the day.

Thank you so much. We were blown away!

Genevieve and Matt

Dear Rupert,


I am writing to express our huge thanks for the fabulous job you did in erecting a magnificent marquee in what turned out to be horrendous conditions.

The marquee looked stunning on Saturday and you provided a fantastic service with the catering and waiting staff .

We have had nothing but compliments about the evening, we all had an extremely enjoyable and successful time.

Once again thank you for providing us with such a professional service and we would be more than happy to provide you a glowing reference.

Kind regards

Dear Rupert and the crew,

Many thanks for so much time getting EVERYTHING right. I know it must have been a trial being so far away from home.
