December 22, 2020

If you’re getting engaged this festive season then you’re far from alone!

Perhaps it’s because you’ve been cuddling up on the sofa all autumn and winter? Perhaps it’s the country walks you’ve been taking together on those cold, crisp winter days?

That super-hot and strangely irresistible Christmas jumper that you’ve been wearing recently?

If you’re planning to propose (or hoping to be proposed to!) this Christmas or new year, then read on. We’ve got some free gifts, tips and advice lined up, just for you – Merry Christmas!

Wedding marquees

It would be remiss of us not to mention wedding marquees. After all, we do them so well. A marquee really does make for a unique and very special wedding venue.

Wedding marqueesWe work closely with every client to design and build their very own, bespoke wedding venue. Because each marquee is tailored, not only to fit the bride and grooms’ vision, but to fit its location too, every wedding marquee is guaranteed to be different.

Our approach to marquee planning is consultative. That means that we listen very carefully to our clients and do everything in our power to create the dream marquee venue that they envisage. We guide and advise where appropriate, we offer budget based alternatives if relevant, but we never push or cajole our clients along a route that best suits us.
