Dear Harry and Meghan
Many congratulations on your engagement, you both sound so happy and your respective families must be delighted by the news!
Thank you for your initial enquiry, we can indeed confirm that we would be available in May. What luck that you’ve managed to secure both your preferred venue and wedding date so quickly – many couples struggle with this aspect. In answer to your question, Windsor is not a problem for us – Inside Outside supplies marquees throughout the South East of England. We are familiar with your chosen wedding venue but have not worked within the grounds before, so we would like to arrange a site visit at your earliest convenience. It sounds like there won’t be any issue, but the sooner we can assess the grounds the better.
You’ve said that it’s likely to be quite a large wedding and that the reception guest list will run into the hundreds. Again, this is not a problem. The beauty of a marquee is that we can create exactly the space you need to accommodate your guests. Do please take a look at the different styles of marquee we can provide and our wedding gallery for inspiration. Iain Booth, Inside Outside’s Managing Director, will happily chat through any ideas you have when he meets you in Windsor.
We appreciate that you are at the very earliest stages of planning. But with so much to organise within a relatively short time, you might be interested to know that we do far more than simply provide marquees We have an excellent network of suppliers that we can introduce you to – from florists to venue stylists to caterers and entertainers. Each supplier has been chosen for the quality and reliability of their service. Many have extensive experience of working on high profile functions and events, they know how to transform a wedding into a wonderful and romantic experience that you and your guests will remember forever.
You are absolutely right in wanting your wedding to reflect your personalities. We can certainly work with you to ensure that your characters shine through in the theming and decoration of the marquee. At this stage, it might be pertinent to mention our event coordination service – it sounds like you are both very busy people and this service may be just what you need to ensure that every last detail is taken care of, all suppliers are booked and everything runs smoothly on the day itself. We would suggest that our bespoke service might be the most appropriate – Lucy, our wedding coordinator, will happily take up the reins, sort everything on your behalf and keep you fully informed of progress throughout. It means a stress-free experience for you in the lead up to your wedding day and the reassurance that you needn’t worry about anything on the day itself.
Needless to say, should you choose Inside Outside for your reception marquee we will exercise discretion at all times. In return, we’d be grateful if, in the event of any publicity surrounding your special day, you might give Inside Outside a name check. We are confident that we will provide a service fit for a king (or not – please pardon the pun) and one that you will be happy to recommend to friends and family – so much of our business come via word of mouth and your recommendation will, naturally, be much appreciated.
The Inside Outside team
