David & Amanda: thank you so much for all the incredible hard work you put in to the Ball and for the wonderful support you have given to Julia’s House and the Moreton Charity Ball.

 

Nothing was too much trouble and, even in the week leading up to the event, numbers changed involving last minute tweaks to the plan which were undertaken in your usual efficient and professional way.  It was a fabulous night – the marquee looked amazing and many people commented on the decoration and lighting which, combined with the Wizard of Oz theme,  created a wonderful ambiance.

 

Everyone I’ve spoken to said they had the best time: wonderful food, great atmosphere and music.  A couple of guests, who hadn’t been before, said they would definitely book a couple of tables for next time.

 

It has been a delight working with you and I look forward to combining on more projects in the future.

Thank you for all you did to make Katherine's wedding such a stressless and happy one. The marquee was a wonderful venue and absolutely perfect for all our needs. It looked even more stunning than I imagined. It was an inspiration to put one of my small trees inside the marquee and all the windows down one side facing the garden. Altogether it was a triumph! Above all, it was wonderful to have your calm expertise guiding me and to have your unquestioning help over the pulleys. How gorgeous the marquee looked when all the "elements" were put together!

 

P.S. I totally forgot to mention what a fabulous team you have - so charming and professional - it was a joy to have them "on site".

We can't thank Western Marquees enough for all the organisation, ideas, efficiency and calmness throughout the planning and the ultimate quality of the equipment supplied. Just perfect. It all made for an amazing evening. And the fact that you were able to recommend so many other things to help make the evening go so well, such as the band (who were incredible!!) really helped turn it all into an utterly memorable event. You are most certainly not just a marquee company.   So a massive, massive thank you!!!

We were so pleased with how Katharine’s party went on Friday, and in particular the focal point of the marquee – and its dance floor! At dusk it looked beautiful with the various fairy lights and uplighters and the blue floodlights on the house were spectacular.  The lavender growing in the beds under the windows were given a colour boost!

 

Thank you and the team for the professional way you dealt with the putting up and dismantling of the marquee and especially to David for coming to see us in the first instance.  It made such a difference to our enjoyment of the whole occasion.

Fiona - Bride - Poxwell, Dorchester

Thank you very much for helping to make Saturday such a success for us all. The marquee was amazing, spacious and light and airy for what was a lovely sunny day. Sam and I were delighted with it, as were our families and guests. The bunting was especially appealing, and I felt the choice of green flooring helped match our relaxed rural theme. And many people commented on how comfortable the chairs were!

 

Thank you to you and the team for setting up and taking down the structure effectively and efficiently. From start to finish, we knew the process was in hand. My Dad and I felt fully informed about what was being provided and the service was highly professional.

 

Thank you again, it was a marvellous day for us, and the marquee made it extra special.

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your team for supplying the marquee & generator for the Spring Tide Food Festival over the weekend of the 16 & 17 May. The event was a huge success and the services that Western Marquees delivered were spot on. I was particularly impressed with the electric set up which was very easy to connect the producers to and for being so flexible with changing the panels and running additional cables to producers situated a little way off from the main festival field.

 

I look forward to working with you again on other events in partnership with Dorset Food & Drink & NT.

 

Thank you again. Hope you have a great weekend and a successful 2015 events season!

I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank you’ for your support in helping us make the Dorset Knob Throwing and Frome Valley Food Fest on Sunday 3rd May 2015 such an enjoyable and successful day. Please can you convey our thanks to all your team who do such a splendid job in ensuring that everything runs smoothly. It really is appreciated.

 

Your help & assistance has enabled us to raise funds for our local village organisations. Primarily these are the Cricket Club, the Football Club, the Playing Fields and the Savill Hall.

Jane - Mother of Bride - Minterne House, Dorchester
2 November 2013

THANK YOU!!

 

The marquee was brilliant and absolutely fitted our requirements for Saturday evening. We had loads of positive comments about the bunting, and the noise from the band was well-contained with the speakers facing across the tent rather than down through the diners.

 

We were all very comfortable, and beautifully warm and dry (just as you said we would be!) despite the wind and rain. The loos were excellent and the walkway between tent and loos worked really well.

 

Thank you for all your attention to detail...we didn't need the umbrellas in the end, as the rain held off when we were outside...and your excellent service.

Sue - Mother of the bride - Blandford Forum
20 September 2013

Just a note to thank you and David for doing a brilliant job from start to finish, the marquee looked beautiful within the setting and your attention to detail was spot on.

On behalf of the British Dragon Association I would like to thank you all at Western Marquees for your help and assistance with the marquee at the World Championship. The marquee worked very well in all respects and was a very well received event centre and an elegant dinner venue. Your help, advice and assistance with this was much appreciated.

Catherine - 50th Moroccan Birthday Party - Melcombe Bingham, Dorchester
31 August 2013

Just to say that we have had a huge amount of feedback about the marquee, saying how beautiful it was and how smart and I have, of course, given everyone your name. Thank you and David for creating a wonderful evening - everything was just perfect and there was plenty of space for the 'chill out zone' and tables with room to move between them easily. I think the colour scheme worked very well and everyone loved the starlight and pin spots on the table decorations. You provided a very helpful, personal and efficient service and we will definitely be in touch for our next celebration (give us a year or two!!)

 

The garden lighting was also lovely, with the string lights leading down to the entrance giving a magical effect and the spots on the house and hedge particularly stunning. The Chinese Hat porch was a great idea and made a good introduction to the oriental theme and the loos were extremely smart. It was also wonderful that you were able to do a smaller marquee on Serena's 18th which was just the right size to create an exotic atmosphere and they all loved the bar!

 

Thank you again for all your help.

Catherine - 50th Moroccan Birthday Party - Melcombe Bingham, Dorchester

Your men are really nice and so obliging AND so kind of you allowing us to pay the final instalment after the event. With a charity do this is always a great help.

 

See you anyway in two years and hopefully before then.

I know that my father has already been in touch but now we're back from honeymoon, Jonny and I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you all for creating such a wonderful venue for our wedding reception!

 

The marquee looked absolutely spectacular - we loved everything, particularly the daisy light and the incredible dance floor! And we were so impressed with how quickly it went up! We had lots of lovely compliments from our friends and family who all thought the marquee looked amazing.

 

Thank you for patiently answering all our questions along the way too!

Having returned from our honeymoon and settling into married life, I wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank you to you, David and your team!

 

We had such a fantastic Wedding Day and the Marquee and service supplied by yourselves was fantastic.

 

Right from the start, when Amanda came to see us at home and discuss our requirements, you made it so easy and really listened to what we were looking for. The entire package you provided us was just right for us and we appreciated your honest advice throughout.

 

Amanda was great on the run up to the wedding, answering my many questions and queries I had and when the Marquee went up, it looked fantastic! You gave us professional yet personal service which we thank you for.

 

I would be happy to recommend you to others and please do use my email for any testimonials. I do have some fantastic pictures of the Marquee should you wish to have copies of these?

 

We hope the rest of the year goes well for you all.

 

Thank you again!

  Thank you to you and David for the heater and the lighting - we had a really really lovely day and the marquee looked magical when finished...   Thank you so much for all you and your teams' help..

Apart from the hiccup with one of the heaters (which somehow got turned off - not sure what happened there) everything you provided was first class.

Thanks again.

Mrs R - Funeral Wake, Piddlehinton
21 October 2011

Thank you for the service you provided.  Although we were ‘cosy’ in the marquee, we all agreed that the smaller size was the most appropriate.  We were grateful that your staff removed everything so promptly on Monday and we were pleased with the way in which they carried out their work.  It was a professional operation.

 

Should I be asked to recommend a marquee company in the future I would have no hesitation in recommending you.

Jenny - Eat Dorset Food Fair, Parnham House, Beaminster

I needn't have worried about the size of the marquee we filled it and it all went perfectly, even though it was a sad occasion. Thank you for your help and advice.

We all wanted to thank you for the excellent service we received. The wedding went so well, and thank you also for providing last minute heating, saved it as the weather was chilly.

 

I saw you advertised through google, you were local and looked professional. The quotations were very clear and quick, you also made it easy for us the change certain things as we went along. I would definitely recommend your services. The men you had putting the marquee up were very helpful.

 

Thanks again.

May Day Rally – Borough Gardens, Dorchester – 2 May 2011
2 May 2011

Thank you for providing such a great stage and Marquee.

 

I heard about you through the production sound team Octopia and they suggested you would be the best for our May Day event.  I also heard a lot of praise during Trades Union Council meetings on the great service you had provided for private functions. The quotation was very clear and very prompt.  It was extremely helpful when needing to be clear on funds. You were extremely competitive on price.  I was delighted with the price, and felt like I received quality for the price. I would recommend Western Marquees to everyone and anyone, since the service, the marquees and the price were brilliant. There are no areas I would consider needing improving.  The whole service was professional, friendly and sensitive to client needs.

The Trades Union Council were very pleased with the Marquee and stage, and we would definitely use your services again.

Kelly and Mathew Wedding - Lorton House, Weymouth
24 April 2011

Following our wedding which took place on 24th April 2011, we would just like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the erecting and organising of the marquee from the planning stages right the way through to dismantling it after the event.  We had a fabulous day and the feedback from the guests was that they thought the marquee look stunning.

 

The planing stage was very clear and the quotation easy to understand as well as being adaptable to suit our needs for our ever changing and increasing guest list.

 

We were reassured that due to previous visits to the site where our reception was being held we were in safe hands both with the size of marquee which was suitable for the level area and also the placement of the toilets etc.

 

The great organisation provided by Western Marquees and the reassurance of being just a phone call away helped our day to run smoothly.  We would not hesitate in recommending your services.

 

We would just like to thank you all once again for helping to make our day so special.

Wendy on behalf of the Social Committee

Many thanks for your email and invoice, which will be settled by the club promptly.  I wished to thank you both personally for the attention and service I have received from you.  It is never easy putting on an event for the first time but you have both helped enormously, thank you.

 

I think I can say the 114 people that attended the Summer Party had a really good time, and despite some wet and windy weather the marquee kept us all warm and dry, and a good time was had by all.

 

Many people commented on the look of the marquee and in particular the starlight ceiling was a big success.  I am sure we will wish to book that again.

 

Many thanks again and best wishes for the rest of the summer season.

Steve Weymouth & Portland Borough Council Beach Kite Festival – Weymouth Beach – 1 May 2011

How did you hear about us? Internet colleague Was the quotation clear? YES Were we competitive on price? YES Did you benefit from the site visit (if applicable)? YES IMPORTANT & HELPFUL Would you recommend Western Marquees? CERTAINLY Are there any areas you consider need to be improved?

Robert and I would like to thank you and your men very much indeed for an excellent service that we cannot fault in any way.  The marquee was superb and enabled us and our families and friends to have a really wonderful wedding reception – thank you again. Please do publish our words of praise on your website; they are very sincere and delivered with the warmth that reflects our gratitude.  There are not many organisations today that can deliver a faultless service with a cheery smile in the way that you and your men did – thank you again.
